EGGING PASSING TRAMS AND PEDESTRIANS – NEW YEAR FUN WAS HAD BY SOMEONE
Years ago my sister paid for my new “interview suit” and the first time I wore it someone dropped a number of eggs on me and when I arrived for the interview I was in such a mess that they refused to proceed with the interview and they never contacted me again. The next day I brought the suit to my local cleaners and two days they had a fire and ceased trading and I no longer had an “interview suit”.
Egging is the act of throwing eggs at people or property. The eggs are usually raw, but can be hard-boiled or rotten.
Eggs can easily cause damage when thrown at property, and egging is considered vandalism. When thrown at cars, eggs can dent a body panel or scratch paint where the shell breaks. Egg whites can damage certain types of vehicle and house paint. Dried egg can be difficult to remove, and removal attempts with scrapers or abrasives can damage some surfaces.
Victims of egging may be entitled to financial compensation for the cost of repairs and cleaning to mend damaged property. Common charges related to egging are damage to property, vandalism, and nuisance.
