    Who do you blam the kids or the parents?

    I will tell you if I had kids they would never do that on my watch! I would teach them the very first time they did something wrong like that. That is unreal kids that do that...the parents should be held responsable for not teaching them (kids) correctly. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] I would get slapped for doing something like that - Look how I turned out just fine [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] .

    I live in a highly populated area in the summer...and it's coming....I get load of kids up and down my street at night walking...with ym greenhouse right across my bedroom I'll hear anything that goes on but you bet your buttons I will put them in the hands of the authorities of some punks do something to that greenhouse. I've already had 2 drunk tourists water one of my household's flower beds....belive me they got a good fine from the police. I feel the anger with your Pyro....why not torch the little misfits?

    Cool

    That reminds me, Phil Faulisi from the BACPS has had several people break into his greenhouse, stealing many priceless nepenthes and sarracenia... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] I hope he catches them!

    Hey, you know what? I hire out cheap...Just let me know, I'll come right on down and put the fear of God in those little *&^*&%$#'s
    I actually do make money beating up kids (and adults, too&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]. Heck, I'm a karate teacher!

    BAM!

    Seriously, though, my wife and I had a problem with kids running through our flower bed. She wanted me to screaming after them. Instead, you know what I did? I caught up to them, and asked them nicely to stay out of the bed because they're squishing my plants....it worked! I became their cool neighbor, so they repect my property because the LIKE me.

    Good luck with your damaged plants, I'm sure, with your expert care, they will recover.

    Lightbulb

    OUCH!! Ya, I had that happen to...sorta. About a week ago, one of my DARLING little ANGEL of a students decided my desk was a great place to throw a foot ball next to and smashed my Nep. Raff, I'm still worried it is gonna go the way of the dinosaur. No new growth is showing and everything is going brown. I was perfectly ready to pop his head like a waterballon (by throwing against something hard&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]. But decided he was not worth my job...in hind sight it was a poor decision. Anyways, about the pot stealing thing...I bet it was to grow pot. My students are always asking if they can rip one of my plants out and take the pot so they can grow the seed they found in the weed, I look at them like they just asked the stupidest thing on earth (because they just DID) and say NO! I worry when I am not there though. What is it with kids today thinking that their priorities outweigh society in general?!? I mean, I know there are some good kids out there, I just don't have contact with any and am losing hope in the future of the human race. Who would have thought mankind could lose his only race in which he is the only competitor?



    Can anyone see such marvelous things, knowing them to be only plants and feel no wonder?

    From a law enforcement point of view;

    yeah, okay, your right, your right. Kids have changed in the majority since. I know that my view can be tainted because I deal with THOSE kind of kids on a daily basis. They do things you would not believe. Hey at 12, sex drugs and rock & roll. The criminal destruction is unreal. They do not respect other people's property. Ack, and after you talk to the parents you understand why.

    However,

    Let's not forget the others, like lil and my kids. I am a strict parent, but my kids respect others. Power to the good kids and the parents that work hard. Strength lil.

    Do call law enforcement. What I have found is that after a fine or two the parents start to make their kids behave a little because they can't afford to pay anymore. Good Luck with these kids. Some can be very difficult.

    Be nice if everyone followed the golden rule. Do onto others as you would have them do onto you. Seems like some folks just like to use first three words. I had a bonsai collection destryed one year. Nothing in pots goes out front now.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    Break into a house? Matti I think that is a bit off the wall....then you'd never see your plants again for breaking and entering.

    I would suggest sitting inside your house with the window or door open and shoot them with a pellet gun from there, if you position yourself properly no one will ever see you.
    Then sit and wait for their parents. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    Peace
