Default Attempted vandalism

Someone I was parked next to at a Wendy'* today dropped a large smoke bomb on my trunk lid. Luckily, I happened to be waiting for someone just inside the door and someone pointed it out. Before they could say "who'* car is that?", I was across the parking lot and had knocked it off. Another guy that was in the parking lot told me it was a blue Blazer, but didn't get the plates. I got it off before it could put a burn mark in my white paint. Initially I was too concerned about my paint to run around the building and stop them before they pulled out. We would have had... *cough* words exchanged. I blame the large tents setup in local parking lots selling fireworks to any and all idiot teenagers, most likely illegally, being Illinois.

Heh, I know how things are in the heat of the moment. Too bad you couldn't have chased them down, it would have been interesting.

You ever wonder why people do random acts of vandalism?
