Sometime late last night or early today, someone dumped a bunch of soap on the hood of our car, threw a tuna steak on the passenger seat, and liberally doused the interior and some of the exterior of the car with a chunky brown sauce.

I guess the fact that we don't block access to the second parking space that WE PAY FOR yet several of the neighbors use isn't enough to appease the local savages.

I filed a damage report with the complex management, but didn't bother calling the police. (When someone slashed our top and tires a few years ago, Dallas Police took a report but wouldn't print the car because it's not parked in an enclosed garage.)

If I catch who did it, they'll be sorry they didn't turn themselves in to the police. I have days of gawdawful children's music.

OMG! Why would someone do that? That's insane!

I'm sorry you had to deal with all that. I hope the complex management takes the complaint seriously!

Vogon suspects it was someone he knows. I'll leave that to him since I'd get caught up in the foul details of dealing with them.

I think whoever it was obviously didn't think too hard about how to cause maximum annoyance because most of the mess was easily cleaned up by rinsing off the car, pulling up the seat covers and throwing them in the wash. The rest of the mess just took some elbow grease with surface-appropriate cleaner, rags and a wet vac on the carpet.

The assistant property manager I talked to thanked me for filing a complaint and told me I can drop off my documenting photos as soon as I get them developed. I'll do that tomorrow.

What the hell? I give them a B+ for resourcefulness and an F for kindness. Whoever it was obviously flunked kindergarten and deserves some children's music. I suggest Kidz Bop.

If it was done by the person Vogon suspects, they failed at kindness long ago.

I was surprised by the amateurish execution. If I were to stoop to the level of using fish on someone's car, it wouldn't be fresh enough to still smell like food.

Kidz Bop is good compared to some of the children's music I have stowed away! I've got entire CDs of twee children's show tie-ins, really awful stuff I bought at the dollar store, and even a couple tracks of Barney.

Why would anybody waste a tuna steak?? Weird.

Anyway, that sounds like something that is done when we are in our teenage years. I shudder to think it was an 'adult' who committed such a childish act.
