@tvenuto Hope everything works out for the best.  It sounds like it may be a rough couple of weeks ahead.

Thanks for the well-wishes @sabergirl @goosehd I'm sure it'll work out fine.  I like a good rant, but this stuff actually doesn't stress me out much.  If it goes better than the last 2 acquisitions I've been a part of--which involved getting laid off, and a pay-cut respectively--then I'll count it as a win.  Two literary quotes that have always make things like this seem not so bad:

Quote
"You never know what worse luck your bad luck saved you from."
-Cormac McCarthy, All The Pretty Horses

Quote
"Assume the worst. About everybody. But don't let this poisoned outlook affect your job performance. Let it all roll off your back. Ignore it. Be amused by what you see and suspect. Just because someone you work with is a miserable, treacherous, self-serving, capricious and corrupt asshole shouldn't prevent you from enjoying their company, working with them or finding them entertaining.”
-Anthony Bourdain, Kitchen Confidential

F-ing hell.  My previous car was keyed in Baltimore and I've attempted to mentally prepare myself for it happening to my new one.  I don't get bothered by the incidental wear and tear on things, but intentional destruction by others makes me livid.

May they fall into the next wood-chipper.  Feet first.

Damn @Alex . May they get what's coming to them.

One of my buddies just had his motorcycle stolen right out of his front yard.

To my mind, the wanton destruction of stuff whether it is through spite, jealousy, for a laugh or whatever, is a notch up from theft in unacceptable behaviour.....
