Junkie Gems

IMG_1491
Junkie Gems | Slang | The little pieces of shattered automotive glass that litter the ground after a car is broken into. Modern car window glass is tempered so that it breaks into tiny, gem-like pieces. These “gems” tend to remain at the scene long after the crime is committed, causing all who pass by to a) wonder if they’ve left any valuables visible in their own car, or b) curse at the imaginary junkie they presume is responsible.

Usage | “I woke up and found that both my bikes’ tires were shot. I must have run over some junkie gems on the way home last night…”
