Checked through most of the car, and I can't find a single thing which is missing. The busted glass is far removed from any access to door handles, and the only things that I generally keep on the back seat are old newspapers. I took a lot of pictures and checked the rest of the car for damage, but the only things that I could see are the broken glass and the "antenna" which I presume was somehow used in the event.
It makes me wonder if I should or shouldn't put a new VT alumni sticker on my car. It's a small piece of glass where it was located - if they wanted to "damage" the car, they could've done much worse. (The replacement estimate is about $220.)
My car honked at me when I went to unlock it this morning - my first sign that something was wrong. The meaning of those beeps is that the alarm was triggered since the last time I locked the car. So did the car alarm go off and save the car from additional damage? Of course I doubt I'll ever find out.
Part of me wants to just break down and cry over it. I wonder if it was the alumni association sticker, or maybe the license plate, which drew attention. I wonder if it was just completely random - oddly, that would be comforting. I try to be a good person, I try to be nice to others - and yet this happens. Part of me wants to believe it's related, that I did something and this is karma coming back to me. Part of me doesn't want to believe it's related, because I think of myself as a good person and that I don't deserve this.
Of course, I'm completely grateful that it happened to a thing (car) and not a person. I may not like it, but I know that there are much worse things that could be done to "hurt me," if that was the intention of the vandal.
Obviously this is distracting me from work.
Current Mood: distressed

*squeeeeeeeze* I love you, baby.
I think you may be looking in to the VT thing a bit too much. Who, on this side, would be so inclined to attack VT Alumni?
I think it's probably a case of bored kids.
*huggles* At least they didn't take your wheels.

It's not so much that I would think that "a fan of some rival school" would break a window on my car, as that I'd rather think my car was vandalized for something I can change easily (remove VT stickers from my car) than something that takes longer to change (apartment).
At least my apartment lease is currently running month-to-month with 30-day move-out notice.
I hear ya there. *huggles* I'm sorry you guys have to go through this.
