DC Parking Lot Pain

Now this would be a bad day at Home Depot. The back window of this van looked to be broken while it was sitting in the parking lot last weekend. An errant 2×4 maybe or worse, a vandal?

Could this be the worst done to a car in a DC parking lot? Could you top this damage with a worse parking lot tale of woe?

I challenge you, Washington DC, to share your parking pain. Scratches and dents don’t count, nor do towing companies. Damage must be severe and anonymous.

    I was going to throw the baseball with my roomate after work walking down Eastern Ave right off of 16th St in Silver Spring.

    We come up to a cop who is checking the trunk of an illegally parked black 2006 760il BMW. The care had been parked there for many days, had many tickets, and its procedure to check the trunk.

    Cop lifts the trunk as I am walking by and low and behold an episode of the Sopranos comes to life. There was a dead body in the back of the trunk… true story happened back in March.

    Not quite as bad as the last comment from the suburb to the north, but when I lived in Silver Spring a huge, old tree fell on three cars in the parking lot at the Falkland Chase apartments, just barely missing the POS I drove at the time. The cars were completely crushed (looked a bit the like the monster truck rally Don took me (made me go) to last fall). I remember going outside to help clear the brush, twigs, splintered wood, etc. (and by help clear, I mean take photos) and thinking “I’m really glad it wasn’t my car, but I kinda wish it had been.”

    Two days ago my bike, locked to a street sign, was apparently backed into by a car which bent hell out of the wheel. Which sucked. This isn’t really about the sort of parking incident you’re looking for, I’m just annoyed.
