A Scratch in Time

Yesterday I took my vehicle to the Body Shop. A couple of weeks ago somebody decided to key my van. I really was upset when I saw it. The van is not a year old and I really love the thing. On top of it all it appears to have happened in the church parking lot. I am puzzled at why people do such things.


Today when I discovered that this senseless act of random violence will cost us nearly $500, I flipped again. I really was afraid it was not going to "buff out." Turns out it is a deep gouge and will requires some painting and blending to the front fender and rear door. This is all very disconcerting. I am just terribly confused – why do people people engage in this behaviour? There has to be something better to do with time then damaging someone’s property.


In any event it is just a car and it can be fixed. It is annoying that’s all. I hope the fool who did it enjoyed it because I sure am not enjoying one second of this.


In the meantime life marches on and there is much more than that to worry about. It is really nothing a little make-up can’t cure.

  1. We too were "blessed" by someone injuring our vehicle. Luckily Glen was able to fix the problem himself. Sometimes people amaze me with their lack of awareness for other people and their property. If only we could all walk just a mile in someone else\’s shoes…Then maybe, just maybe,  the world would be a better place.
