Garage List
2012 BMW M3 E92  [0.00]
Gross. A new one for the "Defaced" file

Was on call this weekend and, as usual, I park in the hospital garage at night...on the roof, in the most far away spot. There is usually only one other car with my neurotic tendencies that parks near me, and on weekends it is usually even more sparse. Unfortunately, for this reason, the garage is also open to the public (visitors, patients, etc) on weekends and off-hours.
So...I walk out to my car this morning to find that someone has taken their bloody and pus-soaked wound bandage (looked like abscess packing) and stuck it on my bumper with silk tape. For those not in the business, silk is extremely sticky and gets even more difficult to remove once it heats.
Fortunately it was cool last night and I caught I before it really adhered. I think I should be good after some goo gone, but nonetheless it was pretty disgusting (and I've had to stick my hands in and smell some gross shit throughout the years).

Pretty unbelievable that someone went to such lengths to do this (they literally had to walk to the farthest possible spot). No doubt it was done by someone who has no idea the amount of work and sacrifice it took to own this car and keep it in this condition. Glad I get to stay up all night to help these folks. Maybe later in life this person will need a chest tube or something and there will be a convenient shortage of lidocaine.

Anyway, now off to wash my car with chlorhexidine (kidding)...

You should cover your car with broad spectrum antibiotics. This problem will be solved when you get to start parking in the doctors parking lot and are surronded by nice cars. Heck you wont even need to park in the furthest space

As healthcare costs continue to rise and coverages wanes I think there's going to be more of this around hospitals and clinics.

Angry patients under financial pressure due to medical costs with weak or no coverage will assume any nice car in the lot is owned by the people sending him/her the huge bills.

I'd start thinking about parking on the street a block or so away

Since the OP works in a hospital, my guess is he would want them to contract H-MRSA instead

Good idea. From now on I'll stay in my downtown palace with climate controlled parking and just live off the dividends of my AAPL that I bought in 1987. Why didn't I think of this before?

By the smell of things, we've already reached that point...we can only hope it goes deeper. Luckily no damage that I can see. Glad I have a fresh coat of wax on.

Personally hoping for pan-resistant acinetobacter

Unfortunately there isn't really a "doctor's lot" here. And the "employee lot" is not very much better. There have been repeated thefts and break-ins in that lot as well, and they recently arrested one of the attendants for aiding and abetting. It also is super cramped and carries much higher risk of door dings. Lose-lose situation.

Nope. Most of my patient's are intubated or can barely walk. I actually have a very good relationship with most of my colleagues (from techs, to nurses, to doctors, etc).

Agreed. Unfortunately if I parked a block away on the street in West Philly, I'd probably have no car at all.

Nope! That would require foresight and money. Both of which my hospital system lacks.

So in summary, our hard earned property gets vandalized because society thinks we shouldn't treat ourselves for our successes because they feel we are taking what they are entitled to.
