sorry just want to rant........

:mad:

i live in what i thought was a nice wee village in the hills of North Wales.......

been here 14 yrs and from what i gathered i am/was an accepted member of the community....run a stall for the local sports and social in the annual summer fete raising money for the community, pool team captain (we won the league 2 yrs ago and after a 2 year abscense we are back in and are joint top....also singles and doubles (with my mate) champ....making our landlord very proud.
have a good crack with the lads every friday in the local.....since turning up in the village 14 yrs ago in my two tone 62' resto cal, and having since owned a couple of splits....my current one being without doubt the nicest regarding paint and condition(pic in your rides thread) they all know that VW's are my passion.

went out on Sunday night for a pool match only to find the other team couldn't make it....so we made the most of it and played killer all night.....left the pub to walk home at about 12:30-1am.....as my bus is out at the mo due to me taking it to an upholsterer for a quote on Sat, i walked past it on the way home and all was well....woke up Mon morn and went out to defrost the wife's Seat only to find that some "joker" had dropped one of the wipers down onto the bodywork leaving a nice scratch....now the response i got when i made people aware was...."well it wouldn't have been done on purpose" i understand this, but when a harmless joke goes wrong like this has, i would have expected the culprit to stand up and say sorry......i'm that pissed off with it all i fooked the pool team off and cant even bring myself to enter the pub anymore.......as i feel some cunt is socialising with me whilst being aware of the distress he/she has caused......the bubbles burst :(

considering this village is that tight community wise, that during the summer fete last year when a local girls car was broken into it was all hands to the pump......this is true.......the culprit lived about 10 miles away, and through pressure applied in the right places and threats of people who knew said culprit losing their employment unless his name was given......all the belongings were returned by 5pm the next day.......even the police dont bother coming up here as in their own words...."we police ourselves".....which leads me to believe that the culprit in my case is someone who is very well known and liked in the village.....prob born here.....and as i'm not....they wont give him up......:mad: WANKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

sorry for the rant.

our village is isolated....there was literally a dozen people left in the pub that night....sure i cant be sure......but as it didnt look like malicious damage i doubt some one would drive by and i think...oh i know...i'll just move his wiper .......c'mon...

I can see why you're pissed off :hug: but my take on it is this...

the person who did it, although being a twat, probably didn't expect to cause lasting damage and when they did they probably panicked & told no-one else. They should be ashamed of themselves for not owning up and I suspect they know this so probably never will own up or confide in fellow villagers

If they haven't told anyone else then the rest of the village aren't protecting them . . . they just don't know who the culprit is and don't see it as a big enough deal to get overly concerned about it

By alienating yourself from the rest of the village & removing yourself from the team etc, you are the one who will suffer the most and before long folks will just refer to you as that arsey bloke who over-reacted ;)

Chalk it up to sods law & don't let it ruin more than your paint job :)

You need to get everybodies address from the pub and find out who uses a route home past the van....then kill them with fire!

Yeah, cos 14 years in the wilderness with everyone making jibes behind your back is gonna be a damn sight longer than the last 14 years when you 'got along' with everybody;)

I'd take it as a sign to get out of there as quickly as possible. It's highly likely they've already begun making a wicker man for you! :eek:

Go down to the pub, openly talk about it and then maybe just maybe someone will know something about it. Or..get the police involved and have the vehicle dusted for prints

I'd be tempted to let everyone in the pub know your feelings and leave a note behind the bar asking the person to just own up by phone or something like that i dunno it's a tough call.

Like negawskloV says, don't let it ruin more than just your paint.

it's not ruining my life guys....just wanted to have a rant........maybe it's because i'm just not the sort of person who would ever consider fucking with someone's pride and joy, joke or not.....there's worse shit going on.

i could be living in Gaza for fucks sake.

In my humble,You`ve overreacted.Yes,your car has a scratch,but it`s not the end off the world.Forget about it and move on,no point losing friends over it.
