Today in Russia I have been thinking about some incidents that have been happening around our flats. We have it seems a group of teenagers that are bored and they feel the need to break out peoples windows on their cars.
We have a windshield on our Volga that is cracked in 6 places. They tried real hard to break the old girls front windshield but it was just too tough to fall out. I will get some pictures as soon as the snow stops falling.
Some good friends of ours had their rear windows completely knocked out and another guy had to put two rear windows in. All the above in the same week.
At first I did the typical: “They did it because I am America!”
Sorry Kyle, but they did it because the car was parked near a pile of rocks that stuck out of the snow and the car made a good target for flying projectiles.
I have to catch myself once in a while when the feelings of being picked on happen. It is a old trait from America that has no place in Russia or for that fact anywhere in the world.
The one thing that Russia and the world has taught me is that 90% of the people in the world do not care where you are from and who you are. Just do not bother them and they will not bother you!
Now about them kids ……

THE COMMENT FINE PRINT - IN DEFENSE AGAINST MENTAL MIDGETS:Why do you not respond to my comment? Why is my comment gone? Why are you mean? Why do I hate you for erasing my comment? Why do you hate me for my comment? Why is cussing not allowed (Sometimes you do it - sorta!), when it helps me express my feelings? Why are you a #$&%@#? Why is it wrong to wish you dead? Why do you love Russia? Why are you stupid? Why are you unpatriotic? Why is, why is, why is and why is? My GOD man, Why are you worse than a communist?
The above manifestations of a horde of mental midgets is why I only respond to comments that have signed up to be a user of the blog! (Top right of website is link!) Anyone can comment and anyone can be erased after they comment, but only someone who takes the time to sign up gets a second look from me at the comment. Sorry: I have to draw the line somewhere and when you get thousands of spam, hate and death threat comments a day, then all you do is look at spam, hate and death threats, then I never get anything else done. If you comment after signing in, then I will get a message that someone has tried to post a real comment?
Thanks for understanding and even if you don't understand, thanks anyway...
Another day in the life of Windows to Russia...
