Ugh! I hate when things like this happen. I had my van broken into a few weeks ago. They didn't take anything as I had cleaned it out the day before but all of my papers were dumped out of the glove box. People like that dance on my last nerve. I suggest knitting to feel better.

I'm so sorry someone slashed your tire - that's really too bad that someone would do that. I've never had anything of mine broken into and I feel like that would be the ultimate invasion of privacy.
You saying you wish you had caught them in the act reminded me of when my father caught a couple of kids trashing our new car. We lived on a military base and there were a couple of boys in the "block" that were not well supervised (they once started a fire in their own home while left home alone). Anyway - One Sat morning my dad caught the 2 boys red handed in the car painting the interior with touch up paint from the glove box and scratches from them tyring to pry the door open. My mom called the base cops and dad's inclination was to teach them both a lesson - as it was he held onto them both very tightly until the cops got there. Would you believe the parents tried to deny it and say the kids were watching cartoons !! HELLO

Yeah that's teaching your kids a good lesson isn't it? The parents should have been jailed or, better yet, publicly flogged.

Some people just totally suck. I mean, $25 for a new tire that could have been spent on yarn. Blah.

Even though you didn't get the chance to beat him up, just reember that what goes around, comes around, my friend.

Why can't people leave other people's stuff alone!? I hate thieves and people that vandalize stuff.
This past week a group of thugs came through at 2am and set some of my neighbor's garbage cans on fire. Nice way to wake up, with a fire truck out in front of your house and your neighbor's garbage can engulfed.
I've also had a nice Christmas decoration stolen a few years back in another neighborhood. That really peeved me, we got it back, but the kid's dad brought it back and left it on the side of our house. I think that frosted me more than the actual theft. To think some idiot thought he was doing his kid a favor by hiding him and then didn't even have the decency to ring our bell and give it back to us himself.
Sorry your bike was vandalized, I'm sure you know this already but be on the lookout for more to come.

That's rotten that people do that kind of stuff!
I wish someone caught whoever stole my old bike out of my parents' garage.
