I'm fuming at Discount Tire right now...

Doing this on my iPad from Discount Tire.

My day started ok. I went to the Chevy dealer to get my oil changed. In & out pretty quick. Then I go to the doctor. I had taken off the morning to do these things from work.

I had parked out in an empty area of the parking lot near a nicer BMW a few spots away.

When I get back out to my car, the BMW owner is out there, along with some cops. I am curious, but not concerned. As I get closer to my car, and go around to the passenger side to put my backpack in the front seat, I see that both my right side tires are flat.

Some DOUCHEBAG apparently took a screwdriver and poked the sidewalls of my 2 right tires, and 2 of the BMW's tires.

So, after getting my car transported to my house (to pick up my summer tires I had just taken off), then to discount tire...I am waiting on the insurance agent who's going to be paying for this. Fortunately, a 100 deductible.

Still, I am not really happy that people like this are allowed to breed....

Now that is something to get really P.O.'d about. Sorry to hear about that.

Damn, I'm sorry to hear all that... Fortunately you had other tires to put on it.. and you're scaring me... I'll be up in your neck of the woods in a couple of weeks, first in Portland, then on through Seattle and up into Canada... I'm hoping nothing like that happens... I may have to sleep in the car...

I thought you were mad @ Discount Tire's service They have been great from my experience. However that's really upsetting that somebody did that! But you can take solace in the fact that whoever did that will never get their act together enough to actually afford a nice car like the two he or she vandalized. And if it was a kid, well I hope they get what's coming to them.

Some people have zero (0) respect for other people's property and nice things. Such an unfortunate event.

Nice ride Steve!

Don't worry one day he'll get caught and beaten. My buddy and I caught a dude that was breaking into my friends car at the mall. He already had the door open and was half way into the car. It's amazing what happens when someones head gets caught between the door jam and the door over and over. We just left him unconscious in the mall parking lot. Justice was served .

Why are camaros such idiot magnets ? It seems they get dinged, scraped, crap thrown at them, tires vandalized etc. more often than other cars.

It's not the most expensive car on the road by any means but it seems to attract a lot of hate (envy fueled) ? but again there are many pricier cars out there.

People are straight up retarded. I come unglued if I caught someone in the act of doing something to my Camaro.

Exactly. I thought Discount Tire did something along the lines of shady business.

So I guess he was fuming while he happened to be near Discount Tire, but he wasn't fuming AT Discount Tire.

That's pretty much what happened when we caught the dude breaking into my friends car. He instantly came unglued and gave the dude a serious beating. I'm positive he needed to go to the hospital once he woke up.

He had a huge gash in his head from when my buddy slammed the guys head between the door and door jam.

No, I am AT Discount tire right now, and yes I'm still fuming. I'm waiting for my insurance guy to show up to pay for all of this (except the 100 dollar deductible).

Title was somewhat deliberate
