Flying Rock, Shattered Glass

You know how I tend to complain about the constant lack of action? Karma's a bitch. OK, it wasn't really karma, but remember to be careful what you wish for. At almost 1:00 AM early this morning a rock flew straight through our bedroom window. It left a pretty good hole in the window, which shattered into a million tiny shards of glass. All over our bed. The rock itself first went through two layers of glass, hit the wall (left a mark), ricochet into the bed post (left another bump), went back into the wall (left a third mark), before settling.. under the bed (of course leaving a mark on our hardwood floor).

What the f*ck, you say? Yeah, me too. I heard some people hollering outside - which is quite common on weekends since people seem to have a somewhat primal urge to go out, get shitfaced and act as if they have absolutely no brain activity whatsoever - before we heard a loud crash. At first we didn't understand what had happened, but we quickly discovered that our bedroom window was broken and instantly went outside to see if we could spot anyone. We didn't see squat, so we called the police to notify them of the incident, and then started looking for whatever it was that had gone through the window. Øyvind found a rock under the bed after a little while, and we didn't quite know what to do next. What if we had been gone to bed already, or if we'd been sleeping at the time? Our bed was covered in glass, not to mention being hit by the rock itself which was about 12 centimeters and 415 grams. Believe you me, for the first time in my life I felt lucky to be a night owl - and even more glad that Theo wasn't sleeping on top of the covers by himself, as he usually does at that time of night.

The police came, saw and left. We were told that someone else had witnessed what happened and reported it in just before we did. Naturally there wasn't much for the police officer to do since the cretins were long gone by the time he arrived, so we were told to file a report when the morning came - and naturally get our window fixed. We then called Falck to have them come up with a temporary fix, and after several hours a man finally arrived with some Plexiglas, silicone and glue. He finished around 6:00 AM, and at 6:30 it was at last possible to go to bed. All of our bedclothes went straight into the trash, glass shards and all, and the room was vacuumed at least three times - just to be on the safe side. Since the world apparently stops turning during weekends we won't get our window fixed before Monday. At the earliest.

*sigh*

  1. Huff. Uansett om det bare var fylleræl så er det ekkelt når sånt skjer. Man blir litt paranoid av det. Bra ingen ble skadet i hvertfall Smile
    *klemme*

  2. Linda:
    Vi vet ikke om de var fulle, høye på noe eller bare ute etter å gjøre random hærverk. Paranoid blir jeg ikke, for ut fra hvor steinen traff, vinkel osv., ser det veldig ut som om at det var tilfeldig at det var vårt vindu den traff. Takk. Smile *klem*

  3. Say whaat..Syke mennesker… Bra ingenting skjedde dere <3

  4. Wow, så utrolig dustete folk som gjør slikt. Bra ingen kom til skade, i det minsteThinking

  5. Huff !! er bare veldig glad for at det ikke skadet dere, så blir jeg veldig lei meg for at slikt skjer…desverre.

  6. Gah, slikt gjør meg skikkelig sur! Men heldigvis var det på sommeren og ikke midtvinters, for å se på den lyse siden…. Frown

  7. Hørt at MAC Cosmetics åpner i Trondheim? Wink

    Åpner i September!

  8. Tusen takk for hyggelige kommentarer! Heart Det kunne gått mye verre, så vi er glade for at vi ikke hadde lagt oss enda da det smalt. Jeg skjønner ikke hva som får folk til å gjøre sånne idiotiske ting, akutt mangel på folkeskikk og oppdragelse kanskje? Jeg tviler i midlertid på at de viser seg her igjen, og anmeldelsen er levert.

  9. Reload:
    Kommentaren hører ikke hjemme under dette innlegget, men ja – jeg har vært klar over at M·A·C kommer til Trondheim siden “Spring Colour Forecast” ble lansert i Norge. Jeg fikk vite om at det store skulle skje i august, men det ble tydeligvis utsatt litt – og da jeg var på Trondheim Torg for noen dager siden så jeg at det var kommet opp bannere. Smile

  10. I’m so happy you guys weren’t in bed! I’m sure Theo was really furious at that noise? Smile

  11. Herregud, så utrolig forferdelig! Jeg er sååå glad for at dere ikke hadde lagt dere enda! Herregud, tør ikke tenke på hva som kunne ha skjedd da altså… Enkelte folk..! *Riste på hodet*

  12. Gosh, that must have been scary. I’m glad to hear the three of you are okay.

  13. Jeg vil gjerne kjøpe den MUFE foundationen av deg, bedre at den blir brukt enn at den står og blir gammel. Mye skal du for den a? Nå reiser jeg til England imorra, så USA på mandag, lurer på hva slags adresse du bør sende til i tilfelle. HMMMM.
