Ya know, I pay good god damned money to live in a nice part of town. Soul-less, sub-urban sprawl. Gates and fences, whole nine.

Today? Today I go down the elevator to find this bullshit:

You know, usually, I don't even lock my doors. I don't keep anything worth stealing in the car itself. But since it's summer-time and kids are more prone to do stupid shit, I had started in the last couple weeks.

and this happens. They also unlocked my doors and rolled my windows down. Why? To spite me, thats why.

I call up the cops, "yeah we've seen a lot of this the last few weeks"

I call up my insurance agent, "Yeah, thats terrible, but this is not a theft, it's vandalism, so that'll be a $2500 deductible, too bad they didn't just steal the car"

Yes fuck-wad.... too bad for me huh?

Stale on

    I find it odd they stole your rims and tires but then there is a problem with people stealing the tires to get at the rims here

    Still that does suck for them to steel the tires and rolled down the windows for a laugh at your expense

    far as I know, yeah


    There was also about 500 bucks worth of speakers in the trunk


    so thousands of dollars in electronics.... and they steal rims and tires. After breaking in and rolling down the windows.


    So now, I have to walk to work. me.

    This is something that some people did to be dicks. They weren't trying to make money (they'd have stolen all the other valuable things Stale mentioned).

    No, this was a couple of dudes who thought that this would be funny.

    I mean, huh? They did not just destroy property, they took property from you that is of value. Would stealing speakers also have been vandalism?

    But still, taking tires is stealing! I get that they're mega douches, I just don't understand how the insurance company won't cover this.

    that is god damn weak stale, i'm sorry D:

    did they damage anything besides stealing the tires/rims? Would it be cheaper just to get new tires/rims rather then pay out the deductable and file the claim or is it too late for that?

    White flight is the idea of white people moving away from dangerous "minority" urban areas with higher crime rates and whatnot, to safer "white" suburban communities. Turns out, bad shit can still happen!

    Myself and like 60 other people in my neighborhood have had their tires slashed on 2 occasions about a week ago. Being on summer vacation i have been staying up all night sitting on my dark ass porch with my hunting knife and crow bar. Only yesterday the police notified our neighborhood watch that "they picked up" suspects a couple days ago. Of course no slashing have occurred since, but I'm 95% sure they're just going to get released because there is no evidence, so I'm sure right as my school is starting back up so will the tire slashing and I won't be able to camp out for them. Some serious bullshit.

    I take it you filed a police report.

    If the police have it listed as theft, you might have more pull with the insurance company. Just a thought.

    Also, it seems like it's a pretty well-used parking lot, I guess there's no security or cameras?

    This is the question of the thread right here.

    It would be vandalism if they spray painted your car or something, but they fucking stole the god damn tires and rims. Thats stealing. Fuck you, insurance company.

    Rims are basically the bits of metal between the wheels and the car body, right?

    Seem strangely valuable for what they are
