I lent my Whistler XTR-140 to someone who will remain anonymous. I got it back today because they hadn't been using it (said they didn't need it, go figure). It was returned to me:
- With the lighter adapter missing the bottom piece (looks like it was unscrewed)
- The windshield mount nowhere to be found
- Covered in scratches
I've got a spare lighter adapter, but I'll be out $10 + shipping for the mount. Gonna get it repaired though for the sentimental value.
They're denying all knowledge of how it got damaged, I'm not going to pursue it because I really don't need the hassle. Needless to say, that person will never be allowed anywhere near my electronics again!
Poor XTR-140, it was enjoying its retirement now it's permanently disfigured. Thankfully it does still appear to work or I would have been even more angry.
