k, time to vent, cuz i REALLY need to.

comin home from a friends, it's about 1.30am @ night. going on a 'main' road which on the east side of the city, just on the limits. residential houses are fenced off about 40-50 yards (distance of one house property) i guess from the road. it's relatively lit, but not very. not at all a busy street this late, maybe 1 car every 2 minutes will pass by.

so i'm coming along, then out of my peripheral vision i see a couple people in the dark run back from halfway to the road to the fencing towards the fencing, and i'm thinking, maybe they were some punks who left nails on the road or something assinine like that. so i slow down a bit in suspision. my cautiousness however, turned out to be the wrong thing to do. a second after slowing down, i'm seeing a bunch of driveway gravel rocks on the road. so i'm thinking of my path thru them (not piles of the, but scattered across), when a split second later these fsking punks run out from their hiding place and start THROWING ROCKS AT MY CAR. i heard at least 5 or so hit. i screech to a halt and the punk arses run into the darkness big smiles on there ugly mugs. my urge to kill...rising...rising...i assess my situation - from my quick glances they looked like they were larger built ppl, aged 25 or older (which was very surprising...) being just me @ 19, and more of a wisp than a hulk for sure, i resist my death urge an drive home seething, thinking of what to do (like go get a bat or something...). alas, we don't have a bat or anything anymore, and i didn't want to risk anything (like my car again, as they throw rocks at me and my car if i go after the bastards). i stay home.

the damage really isn't much, but it's still there - 2 small scratches on my left side behind the door on the vinyl designs, 3 or so scratches on the roof on the right side, another on the rear left bumper. mind you, these little dings were half a centimeter or less in length (¼-½"), and i don't know how they missed the windows. damn lucky, i think i woulda went back to stir something up if that were the case.

i shoulda added them to the list...
i'm gunna be pissed for a long time...

holy crap. good thing you kept your cool. You were right to be suspicious and slow down at first, there was nothing else you could have done... but if i saw them run out like that I would have dropped a gear and gunned it.
I would be really pissed, but not quite as bad as you prolly are cause my paint sucks anyway. But it's a good thing they missed the windows because I do carry a knife for self defense at all times. (but even with them being larger and older they prolly also carry a knife or a gun for that matter) I dunno. gettin the hell out of there was the best decision you made.


ppl can be pricks. why don't they throw stones at their own damn cars? I'm sure they'd think that was a bad idea. :evil: :evil:

I was driving home from work last Thursday afternoon when some kid lobbed a stone at my car and hit the windscreen. By the time it actually hit, I was in front of him and had to watch him through the rear window sticking his fingers in his ears and poking his tongue at me!!!! Couldn't do anything about it because he was just a kid - 'bout 14 at a guess. However, he did have a school uniform so I wrote a stinking letter to his headmaster and await a reply with interest. A tiny chip in glass but as it's heated, I've yet to find out what, if any, damage has been done.

Btw: it's illegal in England to carry any kind of weapon that could be termed 'offensive' that includes things like metal tailcombs or dodgy sprays. One guy here is serving a sentence (commuted from life) for the manslaughter of a 16 year old gypsy who he shot, in the dark, when he caught the kid actually in his house, which had been burgled several times before and was right out in the country, miles from anywhere. The bloke (older) who was with him was also slightly injured and is now seeking leave to sue for damages resulting in him being 'unable to work.' doing what, one asks oneself!! :? Of course no-one should kill anyone else - but sometimes one wonders what is the 'reasonable force' English law allows.

why didnt you call the police at the first payphone you came to?
the thought of contacting authorities only came to mind once i got home and calmed down a bit. but by that time it was nearly 30min later. i know the area of town where they were, and the cops would have no chance of finding them. the cops are also kind of pansies here. earlier in the year, our '88 camry got broken into on our driveway and the head unit was damaged up (punks coudln't even figure out how to steal it). good thing my car was in the garage. there was a whole string of thefts/vadalisms on our crescent, and the response from the police was pretty much "aw, boo. that's too bad." the best they can do is give out speeding, illegal U-turn, and parking tickets en masse.

also, judging from the amount of stones that were already on the road, undoubtedly someone musta called the cops, at least i can be optimistic. :?

You never know, one of those a$$holes might "accidently" run in front of your car. I would hate to hit someone that needs cleaned from out gene pool.

A few years back, I was driving in a park and hear snow balls hitting my mom's van. I pretended like I did not notice it. Well, I turned my signal like I was making a right. When I was around the bend, I turned left. I came up behing the punks. Scared the crap out of them. One kit was so scared, he took off running into a fence. Another sliped and fell on his face. I tooted the horn, gave them the finger and went on my way. Since then, I have never had a snow ball thrown at me in that same area.

I was once throwing snowballs at cars with a friend (we were out of school for a week.. 4 ft of snow). We were mostly missing... because we were about 15ft above and 25ft behind the road in the trees behind a log (aka: fort). We were usually throwing them in unison and seeing who's snowball would hit (these were small snowballs by the way.. we weren't trying to scare anyone into wrecking). Anyway, I saw this black pickup coming down the road and kinda picked him out.. I launched my snowball.. lost it in the trees against the sky... looked at the truck to see where it would land and saw a snowball go into his window.. and hit the glass behind the man's head. I turned to my friend and said, "Nice throw."

To which he said, "I haven't thrown mine yet."

8O 8O

The truck had hit his brakes and was coming around, looking for us.. so we hightailed it out of there.

Ahhh.. what fun I had as a kid.

PS: I would never throw rocks at cars

Last weekend some punks threw an egg at my truck as I was driving home... thought they could run across peoples grass and I wouldn't go after them... luckily I decided to not perform man slaughter after driving across about 5 houses grass. Gave em a good fright though... Dude just carry a big wrench or a baseball bat in your trunk... ESPECIALLY in Regina. Freakin lots of punk kids there :roll: .
