We had a day that started out normal enough, but by the end of the day....
In the morning I made bread to take to a friend...
We needed a new router for our network so decided to drive out to Micro Center.
My Honey had ordered what we wanted at Micro Center on the Internet and it was waiting for us at the Web Order Pick Up. We were in and out of the store in less than five minutes. When we came out of the store, we got into our car and drove around the building to leave. We didn't get far until we noticed the mirror on my side of the car was "folded" in. We were concerned someone had hit it so stopped. I got out to check...
We drove around the building and parked again in the same spot so I could go in and talk with the manager and see if there were cameras on the lot. The manager was quite nice and came out to see the damage, but there are no cameras. I was surprised that a place that sells such equipment doesn't have cameras on their parking lot.
After thinking it through, we have come to the conclusion that the person who had been parked in the spot just ahead of us who had been out looking up and walking around the lot when we parked and went into the store was probably the culprit. This person was sitting there when we came back out and figured we would find the damage sooner before we drove away and he could have seen our distress and anger. We denied him this pleasure since we found the damage after we drove to the other side of the building. When we came back to talk with the manager, that vehicle and person were gone.
Before all this happened while we were driving into the store lot we had no confrontation with anyone, we didn't fight over a parking space, there was no sign of any problem. We have come to the conclusion the person who did this is just a very sick and sad individual.
Our car is being fixed. It will take three days for the paint to be properly repaired and it will cost a few hundred dollars that we will have to pay because of our deductible. Our daughter is kind enough to arrange to switch cars around so we can use one of hers for three days while ours is repaired. This all sucks. At first we were angry. Now we are just disgusted with the character who did this. He is a very sad individual. We hope he is caught before he does more damage to other vehicles. As we travel we will be even more observant of our surroundings, but that probably wouldn't have made any difference in this case.
Tomorrow will be better. I hope your day was better than ours.
Oh, the new hardware sure makes our network run faster. Good job, Honey!
