We have one family in the neighborhood who just doesn't "belong." They are straight up thugs. Two days ago two of the kids that come and go over at that house, not occupants I don't think, were shooting a basketball at the goal in our driveway... with our car parked right under it. DUH! I was out the door before they could shoot a second time but they were walking up the street already (because they knew from experience that we don't allow people to use our things without permission.) I yelled out, "Don't be using the goal without permission, guys!" to which the older/bigger one replied, "Okay!"
Today, our car has been keyed down both sides, nearly all the panels. It is obvious, malicious, and untraceable. I am furious and I can't do a thing about it. COWARDS! I guess we'll be calling the insurance company. I would call the cops but I'm sure they can't do anything about it. The real problem, as I see it, is that I can't guard against this happening again, really. And again, and again.
I do work nights and I have a lot of them off, however. I could sit up and watch if it becomes a repeat problem.
I sure would like to catch them so I could give them some gospel tracts.
