Default mail dump!!

I am pissed some punk kids just ripped mine and my neighbors mail box out of the ground took a sh!+ in mine and wiped with my mail !! :evil:
They where looking to do more they made it about 100ft up the drive and my driveway alarm went off. I looked to see who was here and they seen me in the window and hauled ass.
Looks like I will be spending some of this years racing budget on more security

Looks like a heavy duty secure mailbox is in your future ! And a guard house at the entrance manned by armed personnel !!
I'm afraid more of this type action is going to be happening, gang, as the economy gets schittier and schittier ........

I wish you could have put some texas pete on the mail that he wipped his butt with. Why are some kids (even some adults) so stupid? They should get a life and find something creative to do.

My buddy lives down the road from me in the middle of nowhere had the same problem. His solution was a cut off railroad rail, set in 12 inches of concrete, a 1/4 inch steel plate custom made mailbox. now heres the kicker, he buried wires to it, hooked up an electric fence transformer to a timer that turned on at night (so not to shock his mailman). He has not had an issue since and actually had someone sideswipe the box a few months back, did about $1800 worth of damage to the kids car and the kid got in trouble since it turns out he was running down mailbox's elsewhere! I will take some pics when I get a chance...
