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.
