Smash your own *&#*@* window

Posted on Tue, Oct 27, 2009 at 9:44 AM

Several downtown businesses have had their windows smashed lately. Newsflash morons: You aren't cool and you aren't hurting Big Bad Business when you do this. You are hurting people who own small businesses who are trying to make a go of it when times are tight and sales may be down. I doubt you actually think about the consequences, but in case you do - newsflash, it isn't going to be covered by insurance. Four-syllable word coming up: "deductible", google it.

That means that the several hundred dollars for replacement - maybe a thousand dollars for a large window - comes out of the cash the business needs to pay for inventory, rent, payroll, you know, minor things like that that help to stay in business. So next time you feel the urge to kick something in, I wish you could aim for your own head.
