$1200.03

I know I only have to pay the $500 deductible (only $500 - sigh) , but the fact that some assholes inflicted $1200.03 worth of damage on my car in a random act of vandalism has upset me very much. And it isn't just the money - it's going to take about a week for the repairs. I have a rental, and it's covered by my insurance, but it isn't the same. Some worthless jerks have robbed me of time, money, and the little car that's taken me to friends and freedom and ragey music and peaceful vistas.

I don't understand meanness, but if your goal was to make me very sad, it worked.

Karma will hopefully reward the good Master and will strike its wrath on the poopy people.

Cheer up!

Dr. Lisa said...

Thanks, padawan. I'm cheering up. Things could have been much worse, and all-in-all, I'll be getting my car back so nothing is lost. I'm just still kind of stunned that dorkasses could inflict so much damage in sneakers.

Kirsten said...

Dorkasses are very effective in their way. It's the only way they get noticed.

Dr. Lisa said...

Yup - dorkasses.

I'm moving from sad to just plain angry.

A new car's first injury is never easy ... but when it's inflicted by some fucktard, it's worse.

I think Greg's bowling ball plan has merit ... and it satisfies Karma if you're into satisfying Karma. I'd just be into watching the ball crush the asshat's poor excuse for a brain.

Dr. Lisa said...

Yup, Mike, I believe I've used the words "fucktard" and "asshat" this week. Thanks for the commiseration!

SarahP said...

*laughing because I've never heard the word "fucktard" before*

(But definitely plan to use it whenever possible)

AaronJV said...

I think you should channel your frustration into kicking other people's doors in. Nothing like spreading the pain around! ;-)

Dr. Lisa said...

Sarah, "fucktard" is one of my favorite words, but I will admit that I may have learned it from Mike.

Aaron - I'm grading physics exams! Very therapeutic! :)

Kirsten said...

I really wanna hear Lisa say "fucktard."

Dr. Lisa said...

I'll be seeing you in a week, K! I promise you a fine rant. :)

Phil said...

Oooh, can I be there? I'll bring the audio recorder...

Dr. Lisa said...

I'll come up with some good profanity.

Michael van Eekhout said...

"Fucktard" and "Asshat" are two of my all time favorites!

Feel free to sprinkle them about.

Randbot said...

Aw, it's good to know that in the wake of vehicular tragedy, we can all come together and support Dr. Lisa via our mutual love for goofy profanity.

Lisa, my sympathies. And I definitely wanna hear you say "fucktard," as well. See ya in a week!

Dr. Lisa said...

I shall use much profanity when I see you, Randy! :)

Judy said...

So, do we need to leave the little one home next weekend? Or perhaps just tiny little earplugs.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!!

Dr. Lisa said...

Judy, I'll behave around LB. I'll try, at least. :) See you soon!

Judy said...

Don't behave too well, you don't want him getting the wrong idea do you?!?

Dr. Lisa said...

Greg and Aaron will be there to supply the bad behavior, don't worry.
