I was going to spend today catching up on homework. Instead, I spent most of the day dealing with some bullshit. Sometime last night someone decided to chunk a brick at my truck. It broke out the passenger window (which I had replaced about a year and half ago), damaged the window frame, and dented the door in such a fashion that a new window can't be put it without the dent being fixed. It seems that someone drove by the parking lot and threw the brick from the car as they were moving; glass was in the handle of the driver side door and the imprint of the brick is too deep to have been thrown from a standstill. I filed a report with the police, but I have no hope of them finding the responsible party. I doubt they will even try. No, that was mainly for my own satisfaction. Though, if by some miracle they do find a responsible party, it will make the cost of this crap a little easier to bear.
This has already cost me a good bit and is definitely going to cost me a lot more. I spent a couple hours cleaning up the glass from the parking lot and out of my truck. I had to go spend $3.00 on a coin operated vacuum to get a majority of it out. I know that the window is going to be around $200 - $300 itself. The body work is probably going to equal that amount. I was hoping to use the remainder of this semester's student loan to pay down some credit card bills, looks like it has a new purpose now. I hate to do it, but if you are reading this and would like to help, don't hesitate to hit that PayPal donation link.
Also, if you would like to see pictures of the damage, check out the gallery. I'm surprised the pictures aren't a blurry mess. I was so pissed off I couldn't stop my hands from shaking. The pictures turned out really well, though.
