I'm writing this to whomever it was that decided emptying a fire extinguisher inside our Explorer was a fun thing to do.
Sound off on the important issues at
Didn't you have anything better to do on a Friday night than to rifle through cars, stealing the fire extinguisher from one of our neighbors, then setting it off inside our vehicle? There were many other vehicles on the street between where you stole the extinguisher and where you emptied it. Why ours?
I'm sure you thought it was a great joke. Well, I have news for you. You have totally ruined our $5,000 vehicle, and there's no way we can afford to replace it. There's no way to get the chemicals out of the air system or out of the cloth seats and floors.
Would you want to drive it and risk your health having to breathe that stuff for any length of time? If you do, I've a car I want to sell you. You know all about it. You've seen the inside before and after you completely ruined it. Aren't you proud of yourself? I sure bet your parents would be proud of you, too, if they knew.
And speaking of parents, please listen up and find out what your kids are doing. Should you find it was your child, nephew, niece or grandchild, I hope you have the decency to come forward and turn those little buggers in.
Vandalism is not cute, or fun, or cheap for those of us on the receiving end. Now we have this perfectly fine vehicle that is no longer safe.
One last thing I want the perpetrator to remember: What goes around, comes around. It's more than an old saying. You will get yours, someday. I hope you realize when it happens that you deserve it for what you did to us.
