I don’t know if it’s jealousy, boredom, ignorance, daring, curiosity or just good old stupidity, but some state of mind has led some small-minded individual to mindlessly smash the passenger side window of the Qashqai+2.

If the intention was to cause a major inconvenience then the perpetrator succeeded, because the damage was only noticed in the morning once the kids were lined up on the pavement ready for the nursery school run.

Following a hasty walk to and from the nursery and call to the police to obtain a crime reference number for insurance purposes, I took a chilly drive to work, where I called Autowindscreens. They did a fantastic job fitting a new window, but they warned we’d still be finding bits of shattered glass for weeks to come. They were right.
