Their Haftpflichtversicherung?

ETA

(And I agree with John that it isn't a first world problem.)

I don´t think it ´s a First World problem at all, Druid67! It´s bloody annoying when idiots do that stuff- wherever they are and whoever you are. If you know it was likely your friend´s neighbours, why not ask them? Someone was present...

Possibly! However, if malicious/"criminal" intent was involved, probably not..depends. If " an accident "..then, yes. They/he/she have to be identified first, though.

20 minutes, Pas? One swine around the corner from us let off a very loud firecracker EXACTLY every 20 minutes from midnight till about 3 am New Year´s Eve/Day!!! :angry: Like Chinese water torture, that was!!!

By the way, you answered your own question well!!!

I dunno. I completely sympathize but it seems to me it could have been any number of people who did this.

 

Do you have a specific reason to suspect the neighbors?

 

Anyway shouldn't your auto's equivalent of "comprehensive coverage" deal with this for you? I don't have a car so no idea, but in the US this would definitely fall under "vandalism" and would be covered by comprehensive.

Unfortunately I live an hour away and only discovered it when I returned home... I have to deal with the typical passive aggressive German nature... I asked (due to work commitments) could you possibly ask them did they see anything? (just to let them know I am cognitive of the incident), but she (German) refused, stating, "it could be anyone..." Grrrrrrr... Sorry, but being from somewhere, were confrontation is not a problem, this attitude kills me!!!

 

I have visions of smashing their cars...!!!

Given the wanton lack of any thought when fireworks are let off here how do you know it's malicious?I hate the fireworks here. How can a country so obsessed with cleanliness, saftey , quiet and green have such an event? I can only assume it's their 20 minutes of complete insanity before switching back to being German?

 

...Absolutely!!!... Sooooo true pas.. It's like; okay lets get all our pent up angst out on our neighbors in twenty minutes, and then return to banality!!!

 

Fuck them!!!

But it COULD have been anyone!!!

 

Unless you have some other reason to think it was them. Are you holding out on us?

 

EDIT: I'm not against you! You just seem to be taking this very personally and it's not clear why?

Hold out on TT'ers... Never dream of such treachery.... I am just innocently asking about acts of revenge?? (because of the strength of the metal, it had to be aimed very close, to make such a dent)

No one knows in this case if it was malicious, Pas. True. BUT based on my observations in my life, there are a hell of a lot of people who do things maliciously and spitefully..usually either because they´re a) dumb, B) B) envious that someone has something they don´t, c) they´re malicious!

That´s one reason it´s often not safe to park a car in the street. Scratches tomorrow morning? Or leave a bike unpadlocked. Stolen? Or why many people are often afraid to leave their homes in the dark etc etc.

 

It´s such a shame there are so many uncivil people wandering around.

 

4th edit: I wanted a b )...dumb not malicious... me!!!
