Today, someone spray painted a black skull on the side of my house. We painted over it and installed lights to hopefully persuade intruders not to vandalize the property because it would be a bright area. The lights were stolen. FML

Next time install A few guard dogs and a machete

That sucks, sorry! I have a sign that says "property monitored by security cameras" even tho it isn't, and it seems to work!


Next time install A few guard dogs and a machete

And a gun, can you shoot people in self defense in America?

No no no I'm not sure you understand, you see this was their plan all along, they want OP to keep putting up defense mechanisms so that they can take them and use them around the house. So OP if you want to buy them a family pet and an all-purpose knife then by all means, get a dog and a machete.

It doesn't seem like a very bright idea.

Hey supermeg your display pic is hilarious! ..I hate autocorrect lol

Thats what happens when white people move into the hood. Get some mexican friends. Feed them 1 every 2 weeks and they will stay loyal. I know i would.

Sorry if this shows up twice.

These are methods you could try, level notes the intensity or danger of the method. Level 1 option: Install tall lamps, like street lights. (Dumbass.) Level 2 option: Buy mousetraps. (Might cause a slight disturbance.) Level 3 option: Install security cameras. (Just gave a thief some new cameras.) Level 4 option: Hire a security guard. (You're a pussy.) Level 5 option: Install electric trip wires. (A little worse than a bee sting.) Level 6 option: Dig holes in your lawn and fill them with snakes. (Medieval strategy ftw.) Level 7 option: Vicious attack dogs. (Make sure to clean the blood.) Level 8 option: Automated metal bb turrets. (Ouch.) Level 9 option: Play Justin Bieber music when noise is heard. (It is sure to scare away any creepers.) Level 10 option: Landmines. (Short 'n' sweet, get the job done.)

Perhaps an Airsoft Automatic Sentry would do the trick. Oh, and a 24/7 aerial UAV.

Guard dogs that shoot bees out of their mouths?

Put up a sign that says "if you can read this sign, you're in range" with a picture of a sniper under it.

Wasn't the skull Banksy enough for you?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't the FML say "it's wouldn't be a bright idea" not "it would be a bright idea"?

Dont forget a hidden laser pointer with a motion tracking system.

75- I doubt anyone will get pass level 9... Unless it's a 10 year old girl who keeps robing her.

105 what the hell are you smoking??

Op should just steal one of those "protected by ADT" signs.

I have a few cheap cameras up. Works like a dream. Adt and a doggie are a bonus. Actually the cameras and alarm system lowered my insurance rates. Foscam makes decent ones and if searched for someone has them on sale usually. An iPhone app makes it so I can watch wherever and vitamind let's me record in case something happens. There were a few incidents nearby so we put them up. Recently a neighbor started acting up and destroying people's cars. She knew I had the cameras and my stuff was left alone.

The thief would probably steal the damn sign.

Agreed... Or just camp outside with a gun and lay low in the trenches, Then surprise the bastards when they do this and ***** your shotgun* and say "let's rock, bitches!" hahahaha I'm evil >:) that'll scare them for sure! :)

Okay... I failed at that comment... I watch way too much family guy...

Torva_fml 16

It would have been fine, had you not tried to justify your fail comment... With yet another fail comment.

Sounds to me that OP is living in the ghetto.

Why are y'all thumbed down??? FML users are idiots

You don't need to yell anything, 25. A pump-action shotgun will do all the talking for you. "cha-CHUCK!"

"welcome to the ghetto , where all your dreams become reality and will eventually get robbed of your property!"

Take solace in the fact that they are poor and worthless.

Uh, this is God's way of telling you to move

Yeah, god would make someone steal someone else's property just to make them move away. I'm kind of religious, but this is rediculous.

Umm. Just wondering. Why are you on FML if you're a nun?

Instead of asking a question, and waiting hours for her to respond, you could've, i don't know, click on her profile?

Teen- Obviously this wasn't serious, ever heard of being facetious? Quick way of checking if something is serious or not: Does it sound too ridiculous to be true? If so, how about you just assume it is.

I bet she lives in Los Angles. I used to live there until my neighbor was shot and killed.

hmm....ever heard of security cameras?

Because they totally wouldn't steal, break, or vandalize those either....

No, OP has never heard of video cameras or any type of video recording device.

ever heard of the price of a security camera?

old computer: 50 dollars cheap webcam: 20 dollars Linux os: free knowing you built a camera with the same features as a high end camera with scrap parts: priceless

Lure them in with something and have a camera on ready to record

Leave a camera facing that area out and catch them, plain and simple. Either spray paint back for revenge, or be mature and turn in the tape to get them for it.

Unless they steal the camera.

19- i like your picture bro. Makes me laugh everytime. Hahahaha. Anyways. What we do in the mexican side of town is get a whole bunch of friends and make a cook out. The essays will appreciate the free food and they will take care of your house for a couple of weeks.

Dear god 43. I hope you aren't trying to spell "ese" when you say "essay".

I think he was on his iPod/iPhone and it auto corrected him...
