This is to the $#&^#@ who put the container of paint in the road.......

I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL YOU PIECE OF [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]*!

This morning I went to the bank to take my store's deposit, and when I came back out I saw something on my rear bumper right behind the back wheel. It was paint....

DAYGLO ORANGE PAINT!

Not only was it on my rear bumper, but also down the passenger side of my car, inside both wheel wells, and on my tires as well! On my way to work I remember running over something. I didn't remember seeing it, but it was small as it didn't make a big noise so I thought nothing of it. Well, it appears that someone must have made a balloon or some other container full of this paint just for someone to run over.

I hit it and it was all over my car!

I had to call someone in to cover my store so I could act fast and get it off before it completely dried in the 90 degree heat. I must have hit the paint around 8:45 or so and by 10:15 I was at Pep Boys buying a clay bar and some gum and adhesive remover.

$30.00, 2 hours scrubbing the paint off the side of my car in the Pep Boys parking lot.....in my work clothes...... and a car wash later and I got almost all of it off. There are a few specks left inside the fender wells that I couldn't reach and I still have a couple of bright orange spots inside my tire tread, but I got to it quick enough that my car is almost back to normal. All I need to do now is go polish all the swirl marks out of the paint that I put in it today scrubbing the orange paint off and then a good coat of wax and my car will be back to its original state.

Sorry, no pics as I didn't have my camera with me and I was trying to act fast before the paint dried completely.

That guy will get what's coming to him.........some day.......some how........Karma will rear its ugly head on him.

Id retrace my route and see where it was, should be able to see it on the road, and see if theres anything around to indicate where it came from or who.

I already did that and found nothing. No paint in the road or container.

I remember one time when I had my 93 Cavalier (with rims) I was driving down the road, saw the kids off to the side starting to run and them thump.. I ran something over. No damage was caused by I slammed my brakes on and pulled to the side, got out and started yelling like a cat from hell. At that time, I was 17, so I could have beat them young kids up, they looked 14-16 possibly. People are just so disgusting with what they do to other peoples property. No respect what so ever.

Good job on the fast reaction. My governing principal is "What goes around comes around".

Let's hope this come true for this turd I think getting a major bone broke while placing his next device sounds about right.
