    Angry Why why why?!?!??!

    Guys and girls please answer me this one simple question -

    Why in God's name do bl00dy kids nick bl00dy valve caps?!?!

    I have, over the past few years had a fairly extensive selection of valve caps, ranging from pretty expensive Vaux ones, to the most recent incarnation, the spectacularly chavvy bright blue anodised ones which Chris bought me at PVS. I had honestly thought that I might be able to keep these ones, as they were pretty obviously £3 specials, and worth bu99er all to anyone.

    But, blow me, just checked today, and the damned things have been stolen!! What is really infuriating, is that the fourth one was very tightly screwed on, and they evidently couldn't get it off - so it looks like they have hit it with something, leaving a lovely 4" scratch across the surface of the wheel!!!

    Minor in the greater scheme of things, and the wheel is nothing that another coat of B&Q's finest white spray paint won't fix, but WHY?!?!?!?!

    It is beyond me - what is the point?!?! Tempted to sit out and wait for the little ****s tonight and find out why they do it!!! What bothers me more than the stealing and the damage is the thought of some little grot with his filthy hand all over my car!

    They usually go in pairs, for their pushbikes or scooters, I`ve lost count of how many I have lost, a set went the night I had replaced them !! the wife saw the funny side though ? I think a genourous helping of chilli oil on them, then at least you know next time they go for a whizzer they WILL pay the price for stealing them !!!
