    somebody messing with my car?

    hi all

    last week i got out from work to find a note under my windscreen wiper, it said ;

    "watch your driving- cutting people off and hooning. i ll report you next time. cheers sensible driver"

    at the time i didn't think much of it, thinking its totally possible i accidentally cut someone off, and i'm not a hoon in my hilux surf, or any other car for that matter.
    today when i got out of work there was another note with the same handwritting it said;

    " roses are red violets are blue your fuckn driving sux. cheers sensible driver"

    at first i thought it was one of the boys at work having some fun, but the writing is far to tidy to be any of thiers, also on monday i had a flat tire which could be totally unrelated, but i put air in and it hasnt gone down again.

    what do you gents think? and any good ideas on how to catch them?

    Look on the positive side ............. It can't be an Ex missus still holding a grudge because you jumped her sister (twice ), otherwise your headlights and windows would have been smashed, your seat and tyres slashed and nasty words keyed into all of the panels.

    Maybe you have a secrete admirer, who sucks at poetry, trying to get your attention.

    Game camera mounted on the front seat or your car will get them.

    If not you'd better be watching your back just in case.

    Cheers

    Mistaken identity?
    The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change; until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds

    @Dan88 i had something similar happen to me, a neighbour of mine was leaving threatening letters in the mail about me and my apparent driving style, making threats about tampering with my car etc. i was acussed of revving my car early in the morning and driving like a fuck tard. i took my car and the letters to the local cop shop, as it turned out that person had complained to the cops, they interviewed me and inspected my car said i was all sweet and thanked me for the letters, the person went back to the cops to complain again and was read the riot act. i never had a problem again. morale of the story take all the notes to your local copper this person may well of complained about you and your so called driving they will get a shock next time they go in to complain after the cops have seen the notes your been left.

    Yes it's likely you're dealing with a nut job.

    Keep all evidence and report to police. The magic words are you fear for your safety. It's an implied threat.

    It's upsetting your family and affecting your life....

    Per the previous the police need a complaint from you so they can act on the nut job

    Portable electric fence unit hooked up to the wipers should fix it. Worked on the cat that used to hunt around the bird feeders.

    thats genius! who has a spare fence unit?
    will probably give the cops a ring tommorow and have a chat with them, will be interesting to know if they have had any complaints or if the note writer is bluffing
