FML - The follow-up

Today, I caught my neighbor picking my flowers out of the planter on my porch. When I said something to her, she ran off and knocked over the planter, smashing it. She is now acting like nothing happened. FML

Hey OP here. I hadn't been up all that long and our dog started barking at something so I went to check it out. I open the door and there she is cutting all of my calla lily stems! I was incredibly baffled that she would just walk up onto the porch and do that. What I said to her was "Uhm.. Those are my flowers.." (such mean and rude fighting words!) She then took off like a bat out of hell while knocking off the plant pot onto the concrete below. (I think knocking it over was purely accidental but it still doesn't excuse what she was doing.) I got dressed and went next door to ask what the heck that was all about and she "informed" me that I must have mistaken her for someone else. After a few minutes of arguing I gave up and came back to clean up the mess. I figured I would just not worry about it, certainly nothing worth involving the law. On the plus side, about noon there was a knock on my door and a slightly larger, new plant pot was sitting on my porch with no one around. (I wonder who left it.. Hmmmm...) The actual act of picking the flowers doesn't bug me too terribly seeing as my niece picks the flowers almost every time one blooms. It is the lack of honesty that caused the issue for me.

There's definitely better ways to handle the situation... However... Personally... I would squirt super glue in her locks and splash paint remover on her porch and exterior walls! Assuming she has a porch. But remember! There are better ways to handle it.

Yes indeed. In my old neighbourhood, they used to steal my potted plants if they weren't planted in the ground yet. I'd bring a few home from the nursery and the next day *poof*!

It's true, we all do. My old neighbours had teenage sons who got high and tried to steal the door handle on the front door. Embarrassed as the neighbours were, it was still pretty amusing.

My aunt is a chemistry teacher that shows her students how fast a pig can dissolve in acid. I will probably just slip a person in that way if I so choose lol.

LOVE IT. A nice realistic rubber snake in the pot might work. A really funny one (don't know if the blooms are heavy enough to keep it from being noticeable) is to attach a small fake snake via a thread to the bloom. Pick a bloom, and a snake charges out....
