So this past Thursday night I took my car a couple of places. After I got back at 11:00 pm I left my cell phone holster in the car. At around 2 am on Friday I went down to get it and to my major displeasure I find some serious damage to the passenger's side of my car. I called the Police and filed a report insisting that it be written as vandalism.
I know the car was not damaged at all when I parked it, so sometime between 11 and 2 someone came and damaged not just my car, but the car next to it as well. Both cars were damaged in the same place. Sad thing is that the other car is not worth as much money as the cost to repair the dent and so the owner will either have to live with it or have her car totaled.
The damage is bad and was obviously done by some rather fat person, probably drunk falling into the side of my car. I am pissed to say the least and I really hope that the person who did this enjoyed damaging my car, because if they are found, they will pay. In Ohio, vandalism which costs more than 1,000 to repair is a felony and I will be pressing charges since the damage is going to far exceed the 1,000 mark. I will also be turning the culprit over to my insurance co so they can sue the person to recoup the repair costs.
I have already contacted my insurance and will have the adjuster look at the car next week. I'll have the car repaired at a local bodyshop that has done all of my work in the past and I am comfortable with and in less than a months time, my Solara will look new again.
I'm just so pissed that at a school where the average family income is in the solid middle class, where people work hard for their possessions, that someone would do this to my car. I'm even more pissed that this was done to another vehicle parked next to mine by someone who was probably intoxicated and since 99% of the quad is freshman, was illegally intoxicated. My school needs to step up their efforts in curbing underage drinking and patrolling the areas around the dorms at night so things like this won't happen. I will be writing emails all next week to University officials, you all can bet on that.
At least I'm only going to be there for 5 more weeks.
