    I know that there is never, ever any circumstance that would justify vandalism against another vehicle. With that said, so that my position is clear, seeing that Lincoln Navigator surely tempts me to visit the dark side. But I'm better than that. Yet the feeling is there and I can't help it. I want to strike back. I went these abusers to know that their abuse will not be tolerated. They are the kind of people who believe the world revolves around them because they drive an obnoxiously large vehicle.

    Is spraying the word "RESERVED" in cheese wiz on the offending vehicle's front and rear windshield too much? Please? Pretty please?

    Orange Cheeze Wiz?

    I think half the spots at JFK are labeled for 30 minute general parking, IIRC, so there's really been no infraction.

    Amped - tsk tsk. Vandalizing a car with Cheez Wiz is not mayoral behavior... now NUTELLA. That's more becoming of a man of your stature.

    @ NoMo - brilliant! Why rely on cheese when you can have the nuts do all the work?

    Cap - is there another color?? I have the strange urge for some nice blue Cheez wiz.

    Amped - ha! Plus, if you need to make a correction, it's a lot tastier.

    @Bighorn, isn't it still an infraction if you park 1 car in 2 spots?
  • edited November -1
    @PB
    Absolutely an infraction on that point--we must be careful about claiming what's not ours to claim though.

    I think I've read of signage that limits charging parking to one hour, though I don't remember coming across one. I know I've spent more time than that range charging from Eish. What to do--move spots?

    The signage at JFK has been updated, though the old signs are still there making it a little confusing.

    I was at Greenwich South this afternoon. The Code Orange cones were all in place, no ICEing. The only problem was charger #4 (A and B) was out. Tesla notified.

    @AmpedRealtor - +1

    Makes me wish I had invented my "key pen" years ago when I thought of it.
    (Picture this - an insanely fine paint pen, silver washable "ink" - the same kind that those big at car decorating markers are made out of. If you draw a long line on a car, it *looks* like they got keyed. They get pissed but eventually it washes off. Or they touch it and figure it out sooner. No harm done but point probably taken.)

    Guys and gals, Do. Not. Vandalize.

    It will come back to bite you, even if you don't get arrested.

    Local news, a woman got arrested for lipstick on another person's car window. (Etiology: she was mad at them for some random reason.)

    Permission is then hereby granted for closing your eyes and imagining the best, most creative vandalism. Drive away with a smile - lawfulness in tact.

    Can one of you creative software geniuses make a video game where I can blow to smithereens any car that ICEs a charging station? You can even call it "EV Rage". I think it could provide the community with a very important outlet for their angst!

    Stopped by Greenwich South this evening. As a agent in the Code Orange movement, I travel north on 15, carefully survey the South SC pulling into the NB rest area - to determine whether to charge NB, where surprisingly no ICE preventing instruments are necessary. Yes, all is well at the SB SC -- Code Orange in effect.

    Wait .. one of the orange sentries is positioned within 12" of the curb -- I travel the 4.57 miles to circle back to the SB SC. (OK, I made up the mileage -- looked good when I typed it). Alas -- Code Blue --ICE infiltration in the spot where the cone was not placed according to the Code Orange specification manual.

    I pulled in to charge - BTW - 4B SC was not working, plugged in, green blinks then message unable to charge. As a true agent, I called it into SC HQ PDQ.

    The offending ICE - left after I was there for 5 minutes. I placed all the cones in their proper centered positions while blue clad support personnel cleared the area.

    Code Orange back in effect.

    @Amped, awesome idea. A simple SWF game could be thrown together in a few minutes.

    Actually a good game would take advantage of the backup cam (or forward-facing cam if you did that hack) and overlay virtual missiles that you could virtually launch and then digitally demolish. Maybe also with some dark-garbed baddies digitally overlaid carrying "Broder-ISIS partnership" signs.

    Just get all your venting done at once.

    CodeOrange-
    You are by no means alone in this movement.
    You have the strength and support of this community cheering you on.

    At least 'some' of us!-clearly kenj has gotten on board...

    Go CodeOrange!

    Still Grinning ;-)

    A Nutella-jam-PB sandwich is delicious. (Nutella on one slice jammed onto another with peanut butter). Both flavours go nuts.
  • edited November -1
    A very good mix is molasses + peanut butter blended. (If you like molasses. And you could even try blackstrap for a more powerful flavor.) The combo flavor is totally awesome...

    @Shesmyne 2 kenj is a dedicated public servant. He couldn't help himself. :-)

    I'd like to see a robotic arm that comes out from behind the nosecone (Inspector Gadget style) to pick up the orange cone as you pull into the spot and then replace it as you leave, automagically. Of course we would need one on the back of the car too, since most spots are the back-in type.

    @PBEndo Yes, I was thinking something along the lines of those cool garbage trucks you have down there in FL. Up here in SoNY we have these guys that jump off a moving truck, pick up these garbage pails (with their hands), dump their contents into the gaping maw of the truck then toss the garbage cans as far away from the house as they can. (If the can had a separate cover those would get flung in the opposite direction.

    We have three men per truck. Got to love the unions.
