People suck
Just walked out to the street after a Denny's dinner with kadyg to discover that my car has been egged.

What was my first clue? Sitting down behind the wheel to discover it wet and sticky. Yes, folks, since I left it out in the sun all day, I left the driver's side window cracked open slightly. What appears to have been a rather good and/or lucky shot tagged the top of the door frame, sending about two-thirds of the egg (shell bits and all) splattering inside.

The exterior I can wash tomorrow with the car wash coupon I'd been saving (edit: after a quick Google search, I'm going to scrub it now, and hope the egg got thrown just a few hours ago rather than during the afternoon). But cleaning the entire front interior is going to be a bitch.

Snarl.

ewww. That's Not Fun. I'd be snarling too, were it my car. Sadly, all I can afford for a vehicle at the moment would be a tonka truck from some toy store anyhow - which also reflects at my skill at driving... some people were really meant to take the bus.

I've never had a car of mine egged.

That's just lame. People who get off on such pointless and childish pranks really show their intelligence level when they do things like that.

Chances are it wasn't aimed at anyone, they just launched an egg at a random car from a distance. Or, it could even be one of those annoying, "Chevy r0x0rs Ford sux0rs" people with Calvin peeing on the logo of said hated vehicle company. They could have egged your car because they just didn't like the brand name.

Just really, really lame. I hope it ends up being easily cleaned.

This is the argument for auto-targeting defensive death-ray laser sentry guns in domestic vehicles.

I have been considering putting an array of hugely bright flashbulbs on the back end of my car, specifically for use against people who tailgate at night. This has very little to do with the current conversation. Thank you and have a nice day.

Bax, sorry to hear about the egging.

Probably just some bored local kids. I never graduated to egging, but I did have an incident with a potato gun ...

A wet cloth with a gentle cleanser on it of some kind (I've used 409 before) should take care of the mess on the steering wheel as well as any other vinyl, rubber, or plastic bits in your car. Just make sure to follow it up with a conditioner of some kind -- Armor-All sucks, pretty much any leather cleaner is fine.

A spraycan of shampoo will work good on the cloth bits. I like the stuff that you spray on, scrub in, and vacuum out.

You definitely want to get that stuff out of the car and off the paint ASAP; it'll peel the paint off if you leave it on very long (which is where egging houses is actually destructive; you can't clean it off enough to keep it from damaging the paint).

I know, as if you didn't have anything better to do it. If you're looking for a bright side though, look at it as incentive to wash your car and clean out the inside. It'll +1 your Carma. Hee hee.

Dude, that sucks, um, eggs. But, as dumb random street crimes go.. at least you weren't knocked out this time. :-/

Hang in there, bud. The bastards all have heart attacks at 55, so the last 25-30 years of our lives will be bastard-free.
