    So, I get up extra early today, with plans to get to work a little earlier than usual so I can tackle a project I'm working on.

    I get out to start my car up, and notice this yellowish smear across my rear window. I then notice this white shell scattered about, and see the entire driver side of my car is covered in egg!! :mad:

    I'm so friggin' pissed off. I've had that car over a year, and now some dumbass decides it would be fun to make me clean up. Now I'm soaked in sweat, and don't have the time I needed to do what I was going to. :rolleyes:

    Did we start a rant channel!? :p

    Sounds to me like you've been well beaten. Maybe ever enough to scramble your mind. Perhaps it's even fried.

    Okay, so my one liners are crap!

    Hope the day gets better for ya!

    Chris, the man who really, really tries

    You got exercise. You have a car that is cleaner than before.

    Look on the bright side. :)

    I think your fortunate....kids could have warpped the thing in several rolls of resturatn sized saran wrap or glued the locks or used pure silcione caulk to try and seal the doors... not that i've done any of those things to jackoffs in my neighborhood.

    heh...yeah...I get enough exercise...I didn't need THIS while trying to get to work. Who knows, maybe it's fate diverting me from a car accident or something?

    Arghh...what a pain. :(

    So, I spent about 40 mins cleaning it from my car. I still have some residue on the windows, but got it off the painted surfaces. I'm not so worried about the windows, if I need to I'll use some toothpaste to get it off.

    Hopefully the carwash will be open tonite when I get off work, so I can get it cleaned. ;)

    yeah..completely random...or so I'm hoping... :rolleyes:

    I didn't look much...but didn't notice any other cars on the block egged. It was only 3 eggs (from what I can tell), but left quite a mess. I think they literally smeared it on my windows after throwing them.

    It's not too bad IF u get to it BEFORE it dries completely. Lucky for me, it's quite humid in the mornings and the heat had not really set in for the day. Had I been late on it, my paint would have been ruined for sure. :eek:

    yeah, egg is a nasty one to get off, scem0. it's incredibly sticky and smelly when it dries. another nasty one is balogna on the hood and roof in the hot sunshine. circles all over the paint job.

    sorry eye, people are such f***ers sometimes. howwever, there is maybe some comfort in knowing that most people like that get what's coming to them--whether that be getting their own cars egged, slamming into a highway divider at 75 mph in a drunken stupor, failing out of college, getting shot in the face by the woman they are attempting to rape... life is so full of possibilities for stupid people :)

    a ton of stupid people succeed too.... unfortunately.

    it's one thing if you're just naturally a bit slow, tough to learn things... but when you do just dumb things common sense wise... that's when there's no sympathy

    He doesn't have time to clean up his car but he does to start up his computer, get to macrumors and let us know about his back fortune and the lack of time he has...:rolleyes:

    Humans are so strange.

    that was sympathetic, man. maybe it never occurred to you that some people work on their computer, and that's why it's on.

    besides, when a person tells his friends that he's having a problem, they aren't supposed to ask, "why are you telling me this?"

    piss off if you're going to be a jerk, man.

    HA! I was just trying to help out your sorry asses....(can I say that?). You would have just sat there talking about her all night - "Here she comes, there she goes, could have had her,......"

    I think that whatever he needed to do took time and had a time it needed to be done. That time has passed, so its too late. Like going to the store before it closes.

    Anyways, that sucks man. Thats cool you got it off though.

    Someone did the same thing to my sisters '90 Mustang Convertable. There were like 10 eggs cracked on the hood, and some on the top. They put ketchup and mustard on it too. It came off though, as we caught it in the early morning :)

    Re: Re: so much for a clean morning...

    I don't think u even read my post. I spent 40 mins cleaning it...after which I was deemed to be late anyway so I called to let them know I'd be a few mins late. And if u really want to know, my computer runs 24/7. Don't jump my ass because I chose to post about it AFTER the event happened.

    I understand the language wall that takes place often with u, but piss off man. :rolleyes:

    sorry to hear about that, eye. I would be pissed off if that happened to me. I can't believe that people actually think egging other people's things is funny. :rolleyes:
