So this happened. AGAIN.

Our house and one down the street are favorite targets for rolling (or tp'ing as it was called in CA). The hubby ran off a group of 3 boys one night after seeing a roll go sailing by the upstairs picture window on his way to the bathroom. We're fairly sure that this is some sort of adolescent cry for female attention--the house down the street has a teenage daughter as does one just two doors down from us--and that they have screwed up their addresses.

The first time I was willing to laugh it off--kids do stupid things, and surely it would wash down eventually, right? After three more times of pulling toilet paper out of trees and watching what we couldn't reach (the photo above is AFTER cleanup) linger beyond all reason, it's gotten old.

I'm contemplating a large lawn sign that reads something like "SHE DOESN'T LIVE HERE" or "WHAT MAKES YOU THINK IT'LL BE ANY DIFFERENT THIS TIME?".

Our neighbors, however, feel even worse than we do. Several different households all feel that *they* are the intended targets and came over to apologize and help clean up. So, boo for punk high school kids and hooray for awesome neighbors?

    This is not only done in movies? Interesting! (from a scientific point of view)

    How very annoying for you!

  2. Ah, no, it's actually done. Mostly by teenagers trying to pull a prank on their friends. I had friends who would do this (to other people), but then help clean up the next day. I am patient to a point. These kids are just getting irritating. >_<
