he is using the card by bringing it up. some kids are playing around in neighborhood and he thinks they did it because he is gay.
When I was a kid, we would put rat snakes in people's mailboxes because it was funny not because they were gay, old, black or what ever. kids are just having fun it. If the OP makes a big deal out of it, then they won. Do nothing and they will get bored and move on.


(BTW, rat snakes are harmless unless you are a rat.)

Re: What to do about the neighbor kids...

I love how most of the suggestions in this thread follow this formula:

Step 1: Warn Mail Person.

Step 2: Destroy your own mailbox to seek revenge.

Yeah that totally is playing the "G" card
Exactly. Thank you for actually reading my post.

It's just a wonder at this point. A gay household in suburbia is not something you encounter every day. I remember, growing up, there was a gay couple that lived across the street from my buddy's parents. His parents were welcoming to everyone, but "Bill and Jeff" were always an anomaly. And we picked up on it as kids...they weren't like everyone else, and we didn't really know what to think. At age 12, it made for some pretty funny jokes between my buddy and I. I can only imagine what we would have done if we put a negative spin on it...maybe throw **** in their mailbox?

Yep, you totally aren't playing the card. Joe Bellman is just an arrogant *****, I have yet to see a decent post from the guy.

That sounds like a hate crime. Bullying, maybe.

What to do?

-Do I set up a webcam, catch them in the act, and then??? I don't know where they live.

-Do I catch them in person, trail them home, and then follow up with their parents?

-Let it go? It's only mail?

-Post a sign on the box that says "smile you're on camera" with or without a webcam watching?

-Hook up the box to an un-grounded 240v circuit?
Take your mailbox down and get a PO Box?

we had to do this because someone kept knocking ours down.

My partner and i had some issues with that kind of behavior from one of the neighborhood kids. At first we thought it was because we're gay. Once I got my camaro tho he started talking to me when he saw me around. I just took some time to get to know the kid and the bull stopped. He asks me for a cigarette paper every now and again, but that's about it. Don't know if that helps any, but I feel your pain...
