FML - The follow-up

Today, my car was keyed, while I was still sitting in it. FML

infinitegrace Say more :
Hey! Let me start off by saying I'm a 5 foot tall girl and I'm not exactly frightening. Therefore it's not like me getting out of the car would have helped. And to those who said I should have drove off, I was in the passenger seat waiting on my mom so I couldn't exactly do that. And it happened so quickly too. I didn't recognize the guy and by the time I knew what had happened it was too late. Just another idiot trying to make trouble.

I really can't see too many people above the age of 25 doing something like this because up until a few years ago you were allowed to protect your possessions by whooping the vandals ass.

You're still allowed to? No? Cops in Montana would probably arrest the guy that keyed your car if they showed up for starting the incident/provoking it.

Keying can happen rather instantaneously, so in the time it took OP to identify the sound, realize what was happening, and get out of her car, the vandal could have completed the keying and started to run away. There's also the possibility that OP couldn't hear the keying over loud music or something, but either way, I think it's unlikely that she would have been able to prevent it by engaging the vandal (which could be dangerous and inadvisable anyway, especially if she was alone). I would be interested to read a follow up from the OP with more details.

#17 I was well aware it happened but due to it happening so quick, and me being 5 foot tall and him being a grown man, I didn't think me getting out of the car was the best idea.

That was my second assumption. I too am really small so I can understand that. I at least hope you got some kind of feel of What he looked like to report to the authorities for your sake.

As I suspected. OP, you did the right thing by choosing not to engage them. Even slight provocation could have escalated the situation and put yourself in a physically dangerous position. I am sorry about your car though. That does suck, but material damage is almost always preferable to physical harm.

Actually #6, there isnt enough info to know whether or not her child was eaten. We need a follow-up, these are the questions that need answered!
