My truck got egged!

Why do kids egg other peoples cars or trucks? It's not like I made any of them mad or anything, heck, I don't even know any of them. My daughter is already grown and living on her own so it's not like she brings her friends over to play now, you know? I just came back in after cleaning egg off my truck. Looks like at least 3 direct hits covering the hood and front windshield. I only noticed it when I went to check the mail, so who knows how long it's been there. I'm sure if it was from last night, hubby would have said something when he called at lunch today. As early as he leaves, he may not have seen it in the dark. Hopefully I got to it in time to protect the paint somewhat, but what a pain. I sure hope school starts soon!

And it's not even Hallowe'en! You have my sympathy. I didn't know egg residue could harm car paint.

Hey Drusilla! Great minds think alike! (I answered from the email notice so wasn't copying your comment.)

It can do alot of damage if it sits out in the sun, especially on dark colors and mine is blue. Until I can try buffing it out, you can see a clear double circle in the middle of the hood. Imagine frying an egg without the non stick coating in your frying pan or the mess left from hardened yolk. Yuck. But yes, even just the heat can help the egg eat away your paint. Adding direct sunshine makes it worse. I was pretty mad the last time my car got egged. It WAS at Halloween, and even though I had a BIG bowl of candy ready for the neighborhood kids, hubby didn't answer the door til I got home from work. You kind of have to expect the kids to egg you then, after all, no treats and you get the trick, lol.

Hello paidreader, I don't get a clear idea. What do you mean by egging your truck?, that some mischevous children thrown eggs on your truck? If it is so, it really is sad. Children everywhere are always mischevous.

Hi paidreader! Kids do some strange things for fun and I don't really like that kind of behavior, who does anyway. What would happen if the kids got bored with throwing eggs? What will they throw next? I hope they will be caught and somehow be given some discipinary actions. Take care and have a nice day!

It may have just been a random prank or they may have gotten the wrong car. If you park your vehicle on the street all kinds of things can happen to your vehicle. I once got sideswiped parked right in front of my own house, the driver was drunk and ran, not very far though seeing as she lived right up the street from me. I don't know whether or not yu saved the paint but it is a big pain in the butt to worry about isn't it? Good luck!

Wow thank god that the kids where I live at have already started back to school last week. It is sad what some kids do still now and days, heck I remember a few cars and houses that I egged when I was younger. But you knowmy boyfriend tells me that when they were growing up that they use to go corning, LOL and I asked him what that was because he is from the country and I am from a big city and never heard of that and this is what he said, it is when kids get ears of corn out of the fields and take the corn off of the ears, put it in a can and then they will go and throw it at peoples houses, I laught at him so hard I was busting a gut. I think I wold rather have someone egg me then throw corn at my door. LMAO.

Where are the parents of these kids? It is awful and very dangerous to egg a truck or automobile. I was driving on the freeway once and some kids threw eggs at my car and one egg hit me on the face. I almost got into an accident. Have patience school starts Monday in California and in other states.
