Default inner-family vandalism? w/pics

OK, my friend and I decided instead of riding our busses home, we'd walk to my mom'* workplace and I'd give him a ride home. Well, we made the 20min trek and put our bookbags in my car to wait until she got off work. When we got out there, there was nothing wrong with the car. My dad had picked up my brothers and dropped them off at mom'* work a while after we got there. After mom got off work, we went to David'* house and dropped him off, but my mom wanted to go in and talk to his mom. Well, my brother, Bubba, decided he was gonna stay outside. When we came out to leave, I found my grille molding hanging off the grille by one little clip. "Oh, I didn't do it" Pshht. What a crock. I pulled if off and will try to retach it this weekend.

Yes. Innatimite objects do like to upset their owmers. Running away, breaking, getting revenge, and so much more.... I say take something important of his, make him sweat a little. Then put it somewhere obvious to make him look stupiid.

I know these things can break, but only 3 of those little clips were broke, I know, I counted. Then I come out, and all but 1 are broken?

Mine fell off EXACTLY like that when I was standing in front of it at the ex-wife'* house. She laughed her arse off. I'd just bought the 95 the week before.

A little clear silicone adhesive and she'* all good now.

That'* what I plan to use. BTW, for applications like this, just so you know, 3M Trim Adhesive SUCKS. Worst product I've ever bought.

It works great for areas of large surface-to-surface contact.
