|So we went ahead and bought a new car about three weeks ago. A perfect little Scion XD. It's the first car either of us have ever owned that hasn't come out of somebodies front lawn, so obviously we were really proud of it.|
Fast forward two weeks. I'm at work looking out the window at our new car, when I notice a long, white scratch running down both drivers side door panels. Son of a bitch. 400 miles on it, and our new car is keyed. Brian and I are furious, and suspect some drunk asshole keyed it at the Brewer game we drove it to two nights before. We decided that it wouldn't have happened at either of our jobs, and certainly not in our apartment parking garage that only the 30 residents of our apartment have access to. So we take it to get an estimate- $1,000. Just because some asshole keyed our car in the space of a second. The body shop can't get it in until May 5th, so we figure we'll suck it up and drive a keyed car around for a few weeks.
Fast forward to this morning. Brian goes down to the garage to leave for work, and what the fuck, there's a new scratch right above the first one. Not as long or as deep, but holy shit, someone keyed our new car again.
So obviously this changes everything. The scratch wasn't there when I parked last night, and now it is. Someone keyed our car while it was parked in the secure garage, which means someone in our tiny apartment building keyed our car. So now it's personal. It's not some random crime. Someone, for some reason, is keying our car, and we have no ideas. I don't think we have any enemies in the apartment. And what happens when we get it fixed? Will someone just key it again?
This is awful.
