Default So You May Have Noticed....

....That with an enormously heavy heart, I've had to put Bones up for sale. Believe me I don't want to, but the constant vandalising and cost to repair it means it's starting to get neglected in other areas, and she deserves far more than that. I'm gutted, considering the money I spent to bring her back from the death a few months ago, but needs must.

To think, having to sell something so that spacktards can't break it anymore is seemingly now what this country is coming to.

Sell the car or sell the house? Tricky choice...

I feel so sorry for you - it is terrible that some morons have no conception of the effort and hard work that goes into getting and keeping your pride and joy just that, and just get pleasure out of spoiling things they will never earn. But then they don't understand the meaning of effort or hard work. There's a lad I know in Sheffield has had his vehicle vandalised several times by the same louts, and caught them twice on cctv. Despite this, and knowing where the offenders live on the street, the police say his evidence is inconclusive. He has now managed to move house (council).

Could you not rent a cheap garage or pay a local to use theirs? I know a neighbour of mine once paid a lady pensioner to use her empty garage. She needed the cash and his car was protected. Win win.

The only garages we had were knocked down a few years ago to make way for houses (which were never built).

I've tried for ages to try and get something done, but the police want evidence and the council can't be bothered.
