Saran Wrap Anyone?


Picture this if you will...

It's 3:30am and you're laying in bed trying to get to sleep when all of a sudden, you hear someone ring your doorbell and give three quick knocks on the door.

What would YOU do?

That happened to us this morning and I completely froze. Of course a big part of my brain thought I was imagining things but regardless, a million things ran through my mind. Of course my curiosity got the better of me and I snuck out to see who it was.

I peered around the corner and what do I see standing at our front door: A cop.

Say WHAT?

Apparently the nice police man caught a bunch of kids (9 total) trying to saran wrap my dad's whole car among other things to the neighbors; stealing lawn ornaments, breaking car windows, etc. As I was standing and peering out the window, I saw one of the kids being made to clean up what little saran wrap they had actually gotten on the car.

First of all, I'm shocked they caught all 9 of these kids! You'd think if cops were spotted, the natural reaction would be to flea. Second of all, saran wrap? Seriously guys?

What happened to the sense of kid's these days?

Needless to say, aside from the momentary shock of seeing a police officer at our front door, the whole experience was pretty comical!

Glad they got caught and glad they didn't doo too much damage.

That's what happen when kids are left up to their own devices. Kids have to be parented.

Ugh.

Well that a new one to me Kayla! what an experience, had to laugh as I read "as I was peeing out the window" How bored must these kids be?

Glad to hear they didn't damage your dad's property. You're right, usually the kids flee. I'm surprised they were all caught, but glad they were.

Oh my gosh!!! Is your dad a teacher or something? Or was this just random? What weirdos!!

Oh, my! That was pretty low on the creativity scale (saran wrap?) and pretty low on the common sense scale (why on earth would you go around breaking car windows? Vandalism just doesn't make any sense, and is punishable by law). Most kids just don't think these days.

Don't ask me! the other day my neighbor woke up to sliced cheese on her car windows...who does that?? All I want to know is, what the parents were doing while the kids roamed free in the night vandalizing the neighborhood??
