Thanks For The Note

Today I was taking my mom sightseeing in Baltimore, and we stopped off at Record & Tape Traders in Charles Village. That store is closing in the not-too-distant future! Picked up some stuff at 20% off, that was cool. Then we walk outside, and the mirror has been lopped right off of the car. No paint damage, just a broken mirror. But hey, there's a note! Charles Walken, (410) 285-6791. So I call Mr. Walken, and the number is disconnected. Which leads me to believe someone punked my mirror down, intentionally, and left me a bogus note just to have a little fun with me. So, thanks! What a great thing to happen on what was a really good day.
Called the cops, they really just look like they would rather be anywhere else. Not that I expected them to do anything, but maybe other people are calling in, and it turns out it's a bunch of kids playing games, and the kids get caught. That was a laugh. Anyway, if you're out there, Mr. Walken, your number is disconnected, and I'd still love to have you pay for repairing my mirror.

In Maryland everyone has Uninsured Motorist Protection. If the get who hits you doesn't have insurance or a hit and run, your insurance company can only charge you a $250 deductible and is required to provide you a rental car (whether or not you include that sort of coverage on your plan)... now if they consider it vandalism they probably won't cover, but the person did leave a note (real or not) and your insurer probably won't be able to determine his insurance...
