Friday night I was about to go to bed but decided to go for a quick walk around the block because my legs were really tight (long bike ride). I'd just turned left to come down the street behind my house when I see 3 guys half a block in front of me, one of whom smashes a side view mirror on a car. My car was parked nearby, so I start running after them to make sure they don't hit mine, and I get to where I thought my car was, but I was wrong. I doubled back to see where mine was, and sure enough they had smashed my mirror. So meanwhile, they split up, and I started running after 2 guys who went off together, calling the cops as I run. So i catch up to these guys and the cops were right there. Unfortunately, I was half a block away when it happened, so i didn't see which one it was. They both said it was the other guy, and there was nothing the cops could do. So, to sum up, I too just want to cry.
Given how comfortable I am ripping computers to bits (other people's in warranty kit included ), I'm quite ashamed of my lack of motivation to fix my own cars. Its not that I don't know how, but its usually a lengthy, dirty job (swapping clutches takes ages) and I simply can't be bothered. Somewhere warm, dry and light to work on a car would probably help no end.
I would love to do more of my own car stuff, but as it is, i'm in college living in a house with 11 other people without so much as a garage, so there isn't really much space or time for that matter for car repair. Also, I wouldn't know what I was doing, but I am pretty good at figuring that kind of stuff out. So there is hope for me yet
