Sanctimonious note left on my Cayman!


Recommended Posts

My fianc√©e came home today to find this heartfelt¬†message from¬†the 'Children of Balham' written on my car!ūüė°

 

Now before people assume I'm a reckless driver - just one slight problem, I'm 5,500 miles away and have been for the past two weeks! So unless my car's ECU has been remapped by Knight Industries and its driving around London by itself - I think that sanctimonious so-and-so is 'lifting a Frunk looking for a bloody Engine'! 

 

I'm beginning to detest the part of London where I live. They call it 'Nappy Valley' because it's full of stuck-up helicopter-parents all pushing the same ridiculously expensive prams who think they are Gods gift to earth because they have pushed out a couple of kids who all seem to be called 'Brantley' and 'Daisy'.PHOTO-2019-04-12-23-49-11.jpg.1ba1db23a26c37a5fb6577eef73f3a64.jpg

 

Grinds my gears!¬†ūü§¨

You should get a sticker made up like they put on war planes to record their kills except little children instead of enemies, that should send the message to the parents¬†¬†ūüėā

Children of the Corn (horror movie)...Children of the Balham....degrees of separation? And what about little Tarquin, Tristin, Crispin, Quinten and Jemimah?!

Sounds like you need to move. ;) You wouldn't get anything like that in South Wales!  I'm often heralded to rev the engine (of course I don't oblige, because I'm a snob in a Porsche).

Wouldn't take it too personally, looks like a flyer they have been putting on any decent car.

 

Is strange how people react to Porsche's though.

 

Random cars flying past you at huge speed to prove they are faster than you, or they have passed a Porsche!

 

Idiots at work, who know nothing about cars questioning why you bought it, when they drive very mundane cars....

Just got back home¬†and inspected the letter... it was written in¬†pencil but a very fancy¬†one (like one an illustrator would use)¬†as it was ever so metallic. It was a¬†folded piece of A4 paper and on the other side¬†the person had started writing on the note with ‚ÄėDear...‚Äô then crossed¬†crossed it out and decided to go¬†with ‚ÄėHello‚Äô¬†ūüėā¬†

 

I really need to move! Recently -¬†I was right outside my house a¬†inspecting my car after a super-long drive¬†back from Llundudno¬†and noticed a woman¬†on the other side of the road had stopped and was watching me with a sour face.¬†When I turned to ask if she was ok¬†-¬†she¬†said ‚ÄúI¬†just making sure your not trying to¬†steal¬†it!!‚Ä̬†ūü§¨

Ha! Crossings out and art pencils... Some thought and artistic effort clearly has gone into your telling off :D. I wouldn’t have been more surprised if it was written on art paper packaged in a crafty envelope adorned with twigs and berries and splats of farrow and ball paint.

 

mind you to be fair at least you have a fierce old woman watching out for your machine. Every cloud you know... :D

Haha well.... you would think but when I was travelling I get sent this photo from my partner who had got back from being away herself to find all my car unlocked, doors and every compartment wide open and ransacked! It had been left in that state for at least 2 days and not a single neighbour or passerby was kind enough to just close my doors!

There‚Äôs never a busybody around when you actually need one ūüėā

 

Got a tracker with a motion sensor when I got back which texts me if anyone touches my car. It goes off for as much as a parking ticket on the windscreen but strangely it did not trigger my new Pen-pal?ūü§Ē

Sorry to hear that. Sounds like they‚Äôre signed up to neighbourhood selective watch, only watch and poke your nose in with innocent people. That‚Äôs the problem with curtain twitchers, finger waggers and nimbys, their modus operandi is them and the world that orbits their dramas, it‚Äôs ‚Äúme, me me me‚ÄĚ. So if it‚Äôs not affecting them they won‚Äôt even glance.

 

shouldve told that granny ‚Äúhey, people in¬†glass houses and throwing stones etc - naff¬†all use you were when I was actually burgled‚ÄĚ :D¬†

This is the oddest thing, I couldn't work out how they did it. I leave my key in a draw far away from the front of the house to stop any remote scanners but my girlfriend also sent me a photo of a strange chip on the door handle that was never there before.

 

It made me think back to when I locked myself out of my E39 years ago by leaving the key in the boot before I closed it. The AA man checked a database and found the solution to unlock my car. He said I should really look away while he did the solution but let me watch as I must have an honest face haha He put a wedge between the back of the boot and the C Pillar to expose a cable. He then shorted that cable and all my doors/boot unlocked with no alarm!! 

 

I do wonder if the chip was a result of something they used to access a cable behind the door handle? 865921459_001doorchip.jpg.d5bca1ef479186203e40f7a80e80357d.jpg
