Someone broke into our 12-year-old Dodge Neon. I can’t really say when. It’s our second car, and it’s been parked in the street for the last week or so. I just happened to drive by it yesterday morning and noticed the mess.
And actually, “broke into” maybe be overstating it. The driver’s side window was shattered, but I don’t think there’s anything missing. The radio was still there, and the glovebox seemed no more disorderly than before. There’s some crap in the car—empty boxes and a table lamp that I was moving—but it didn’t look disturbed. Maybe someone just threw a rock. Or maybe I should be hunting for a bullet hole…
Anyway, I put some cardboard on the seat to protect myself from all the glass and drove the car to the body shop I use, and they sent me to Inter Auto Glass near Central and Irving Park.
They found me a used window for $50, including installation. They even cleaned all the broken glass out of the passenger compartment, which I wouldn’t have considered part of the service.
I’ve been meaning for a while to start writing about some local businesses that I like, and these guys seemed like a good place to start.
