frown My Poor Car!

I got home at about 1:30am and went to bed.

I get up in the morning and someone has driven across my front lawn spinning tires (not too much just drove right across...) and they STOLE the passenger side rear door guard strip. It looks horrible with out it.. Im soooo pissed off.

Now I have to go to a wreacker and get a new guard thing.

Ya see what happens when you go to bed too early!!! Stay up all night and party and you'll (maybe) hear the thieving buggers next time.

Seriously though I know how you feel Jamie - the bloody low life needs a good flogging. On the up side I s'pose they could have done worse.

bait them next time Jamie, put another door strip there and boobytrap it. Then videotape it and send it to funniest home videos.

A even stranger theft happened over at my place a while back. Mum planted a jasmine and yellow roses out the front and both were stolen the next day?! Geez if they were polite you know we could have given cuttings for them! We also have stuff taken from our clothesline once till the fence came up. Suppose we live near housing commission places though. Now two Rotweilers 'pups' im looking after Pluto and Jasmine will gladly oblidge strangers with new forms of body origami and sushi handling.

Good to see your back Fonz ^_^..


Yeah it is lucky they just took the strip, easily replaced.. At least they didn't key my car or smash a window or something.. then I'd be out prowling the streets..

I like that.. body origami.. nice.. my little maltese poodle won't do much tho

My german shepard should protect my car, and even if she gets tied up for the night she is just about a foot away from my car
anyone goes near and they'll either run off or she'll wake me up.

make sure you get quality tape, and use wax and grease remover to clean the paint before you try and stick it down.
