1. Web/video cam.

2. Bring DVD to post office. See if they can do anything.

3. If #2 doesn't work, follow kids to their house, provide their address to post office & then maybe something can be done.

A locking mailbox doesn't seem like a bad idea.

I would look into rigging in some type of paint trap, like the ink bombs banks put inside money bags to catch thiefs.

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

The problem with setting a 'trap' is that the kids would likely find it amusing and then it would probably end up in more retaliation.

The locking mailbox seems like a good idea, but how does the mail man put the mail in it? And considering that it seems to cost a good bit of money, I'd probably go the camera route (the camera at least would serve a dual purpose of home security too).

It seems that a glitter assault is the accepted form of retribution in the gay community.

Hmm. Throwing of anything, including fits, isn't condoned by 'my people' or 'my tribe' Certainly not glitter.

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

Webcam sounds like too much work. Get a game cam... much easier.

Establish pattern, follow kids home, continue to monitor, print pictures, talk to parents. Law enforcement need not be involved UNLESS kids continue to exhibit the same behavior after, say, 2 "discussions" with kids parents.

I know kids will be kids and all but if nobody busted me doing the stupid stuff I used to do it wouldnt have taught me any respect for other peoples stuff. It sucks sometimes but someone has to be the responsible adult even if we feel like hypocrites because we USED to do the same stuff when we were KIDS.

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

Most of these options are going a step too far initially IMO. Do the cheapest and least intrusive step first. Get a sticker that reads something along the lines of "This area is under camera surveillance" and slap it on the mailbox. If its part of a row of mailboxes try to put it somewhere that will make it look like all of the mailboxes are being watched as to not single yourself out. That should be enough of a deterrent for most people. If that doesn't stop them then you move on to the next step.

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

I would say the webcam is a great option since you're only guessing it's kids. Webcam can verify that it is actually kids doing it, and not some shady adult.

If it's kids, shake it off. Adults? Could be risky in the future, I'd get the po-po on this.

I'm saying you seem awfully surprised by the fact that two dudes live together in real life. Your only point of reference seems to be ****, so that suggests you either watch gay **** on occasion, or have seen gay ****. Which is it?

You're probably straight except for the occasional one-off gay fantasy, but you shouldn't "point and stare" on a message board. It's rude. There are people who live differently from you and mean no harm.

edit: Oh, and those little ****ers did it again today! It hasn't rained in two days, so just some wet sticks this time.

It's always the ones that deny it the most.

Slit their throats, take their wallets and make it look like a robbery!
