Oh what a great city

September 25, 2009 | 1 Comment

My annual vehicle inspection is due this month. One of the many joys of owning a car here is having to take it in each year and pay someone to scrutinize it and tell you what stupid little things need to be fixed. I always find it funny how long the lines are at the end of each month, as the procrastinators realize that their inspection is soon due. I’m afraid I might fit that category this year, with under a week to complete mine. It’s not my fault,though; I haven’t driven my car in over 2 months. My girlfriend is using it daily for her commute, so she has to deal with the inspection.

So the right mirror was conveniently destroyed last night. I’ve heard of this problem in the neighborhoods of Brighton and Allston, and have seen rows of parked cars in the morning with smashed mirrors on the sidewalk side. Oh, those silly drunk revelers, who find fascination and excitement in the most douchebaggy activities. It makes me wonder: Do people walk around and look for inspection stickers that are about to expire, then proceed to smash away at those cars? There’s terrible irony in this. It’s one thing to destroy someone’s personal property like that but to additionally make them scramble to repair the damage before the deadline? They must be laughing to themselves.

This seems like something a vigilante cyclist might do to reduce the number of cars on the road. Very clever.
