By Milo - Mexico - Mexico
Today, one of my tires blew out on the highway. I managed to slow down and pull over without dying, and went to get my spare tire. I found it right where it was supposed to be, knifed to hell and with a taunting note from my psycho ex taped to it. We broke up nearly 3 years ago. FML

the fact that it's only one spare tire is meaningless in court, and you would actually spend more on court fees to settle the matter when you could just cut your losses and buy a new spare. OP has lost enough money by having to get a tow, they don't need to start a legal case over a fucking tire.

Part of me feels really bad for you, but the other part of me thinks you're an idiot for not having even looked at your spare in almost 3 years. Maybe I'm weird, but keeping and ensuring a well-inflated spare and a jack with me at all times is a must.

I think OP's point was that even though he and his crazy ex broke up three years ago, they still aren't over it. They likely knifed it much more recently. There's a better than even chance that the ex is responsible for his tire blowing out on the highway as well.

If they have been split for 3 years, and she hadn't done it back then, how would she have actually gotten to his spare tyre? It's not like she would have access to the keys. Op would have noticed a break in. That suggests it was done 3 years ago and Op needs to check their spare more often! Plus if it was that long ago the ex has probably gotten over it and regrets her actions.

In the UK the spare is in the boot of the car. It seems weird to keep it underneath considering this sort of situation! Also, it is his own fault if he doesn't lock his car.

Why would you rotate the spare? Unless it's different from the UK, our tyres can only fit on one side, so can only be moved from front to back. The spare is the only tyre that can go either side, which gives it inferior grip and is only used short term.

Ya, I don't think insulting a psycho ex is a good idea. It's been 3 years, op should probably continue on with his life ignoring her. You don't want to be dragged into more drama with a crazy ex when you can continue with your new life. Plus if op doesn't retaliate than there's a good chance she will move on and not continue to do stupid things.
