    Why do I even bother....

    I washed my DD yesterday and today this douche blows grass all over it. It seems every time I was it someone does something to fuck it up. I am tired of it, maybe should buy a car cover but I shouldn't have to. The people who get my car all dirty should be the ones who buy the cover. I don't blow shit all over other peoples stuff so I don't see why other people do. It is hard to see in the picture but this is what they did all over my car:

    Yeah really. Makes me want to give them a real beat down or do something to their car.

    I would be pissed too. I make it a point to shut my blades off and stop the tractor anytime a car passes as I mow along our road.

    This is why my car will never be parked in a lot anywhere without me standing next to it and also why it goes directly into a garage. I don't want to go to prison.
    It's on jackstands.

    That is what I do with my TA but I can't exactly do this with my Charger Daytona or at least while at work.

    Apparently they are stalking you. But seriously sometimes it seems like they are looking for a nice car to ding up in the parking lot. Once my wifes sister backed into my TA and I had to get the door replaced. She acted like it was no big deal (her sister that is)! I was so freaking mad I wanted to bash her car up.

    Agree..I used to drive my buddys crazy because when looking for a parking spot theyd always see one real close to the place were we are going and say''why didnt you just take that one''?..Because i dont want my car doors all dinged up! It used to drive them nuts but i was worried about MY CAR not their layziness to walk!..Yeah usually when i cant see it...i wont leave it!

    I have had people bang their doors on mine, enough to swap paint and bump into my cars bumper and swapped paint and not leave a note or anything. That was right after getting the bumper repainted too. That is wrong to do! Makes me want to get the whole car repainted and put one of those 3m clear car bras over the whole car to protect the paint. I also hate neighbors with outside cats, they always walk all over and scratch my cars with their claws.

    My dd is an 04 chevy tracker, I dont dare drive the vette or the z to the store. But still I try to keep my tracker nice, I guess to some people a car is a car, it doesn't matter to them if theirs looks like shit so it dont bother them to disrespect others.

    Bottom line when it comes to trying to have something nice, avoid all the idiots at all cost lol
