Today, some kids used firecrackers to blow up my mailbox. This is the third time this week. FML

Apparently that's a federal offense, and it cannot be tolerated! Get a security camera and catch them red handed. Then beat the shit out of them.

I guess it's time to buy a metal mailbox perhaps? Or stalk them. That usually works.

That reminds me of a scene from scrubs - JD and Turk were driving down the road (or sidewalk?) with Turk readying a baseball bat to hit a mailbox... Then when he hits it it turns it it's made of titanium. Scrubs wasn't the most realistic of shows... :)

Glad I'm not the only one who thought of the scene from Scrubs. Mailbox baseball doesn't work on Kelso

I, for one, thought of the scene from The Butterfly Effect. Far more drastic and tragic result, but still, OP, this is fairly serious and it should be reported to the police.

Benchwarmers is what came to mind for me...when they're all smashing mailboxes, then the timid guy takes a swing at the masonry/solid stone one.

It was hilarious though.

Get a security camera Then beat the shit outta them? :) Looking to incriminate yourself in the act, Doc? One would hope those two actions are separate and unrelated. ;)

He's just grouchy because he had to run kids off his lawn last night, Draco.

Just get a dog to stand guard. Free love AND protection.

"You punks didn't it didn't you" Don give the beer back man, "I paid for the beer man"..."you're the ones who bust my mailbox aren't you? I think you boys need to get out of the car"...."Just go man"!!! OMG he's shooting at us!!! Bang bang!

#28 - last i checked dogs cost money both in getting them and for the rest of their lives. Plus getting a dog simply to rip someone's face off doesn't seem like a good reason.

10 he could record them doing it beat the shit out of them then erase that part of the tape

Set up security cameras and call the police on them when they do it again.

Probably the most civil and best solution here.

Or buy two mailboxes. One of the huge oversized ones and a smaller one. Fill the big one with concrete, place small one into the concrete before it dries. Let the concrete set, and now you have a fireworks proof mailbox.

A gun is always an option

No I think that is too far

Take it easy pal.

Well that escalated quickly

maybe a paintball gun

OP you need a sniper!

Take it easy Zimmerman. Guns isn't the answer to everything.

Off topic but Zimmerman got himself arrested again.

Apparently neither is proper grammar or spelling.

What did you do to make them hate you?

Here's a cracking idea! The police, who knew right?

They can't do anything unless they know who it is, and even then they need evidence.

Advice. Place a camera on your porch. Point it at your mailbox. Record that

By a camera and set it up in the right spot. After you catch them doing it again you can call the police and show them the tape, they should be able to take it from there.

Keep a non poisonous snake or something inside

that idea would be more effective if it was poisonous

what if they throw it without looking and kill the snake?

Pour gasoline all over it and the ground. Then install a motion triggered cage that will trap them.
