my favorite has always been the long tie wrap on the drive shaft, or around one of the spokes on the wheel.... whap, whap, whap

Now, that's funny there! I don't care who you are

Driving your car thru a nice yard and spinning the wheels was the thing when I was young. When my Dad had his fill of repairing our yard he took catching them in his own hands. Being a paving contractor he had some old RR track at his shop. Had two of his mechanics cut off two sections 15' long and weld sharpened RR spikes to the top of it. They then buried them in our front yard, spikes up and low enough in the grass they could not be seen. Didn't take long till one night we heard the popping of tires and two young men sitting on flats in the front yard. Instead of prosecution they were allowed to work it off.
Today he would be sued for mental distress to the culprits.

How the world had changed. When young, we pulled a lot of pranks but none were harmful. Used to steal apples from a grumpy old farmer until he shot at us with a shotgun filled with rock salt. Didn't hit anyone but sure put a stop to apple stealing!

When caught "screwing around" by one of the two town cops on duty, many times the cop said: Go home." If you did, that was the end of it. If you didn't there was trouble, after all he knew you , your parents, what kind of car you drove, and where you lived.

Ahh The good old days.

I did ONE bad thing when I was a kid involving a pumpkin being tossed out of a car window at 70mph and the back end of a Truck Camper...I mean...who knew that a ripe pumpkin would blow a 2' round hole through a camper wall...

Goody two-shoes here...very surprised that posters are being so honest as to admit to their youthful deeds of damage. It shows that while the world has changed, the ignorance of youth, maybe not so much.

Worst we did was..a friends dad had a egg farm so every halloween we would get a load of chickens (live) and go up to a door, open it and throw in a chicken and close the door fast-best home are the ones with a dog inside.

When I was in my teens I did many of these rotten deeds. I did pay the price upon occasion. Back then if you got caught pranking, someones big Dad would grab onto you and shake the $#!* out of you. You wouldn't wan't to try it now.
Fast forward to a few years ago when some kids from down the road would ride their bikes up our driveway and across our front door mat and kick the front door and knock over the wifes plant pots. She got after them a couple tomes and got told to, well you know. On there exit out there was 2 steps that dropped down to the lawn. so I buried a board just off the steps with shoe tacks poking up just enough to puncture bike tires. I didn't want anyone getting hurt if they fell. It was funny seeing these little creeps pushing there bikes down the road with flat tires. Things do go full circle. To keep on topic I have never had a problem while staying at Walmart overnight.

Or maybe it shows that people haven't changed at all. We just hear about it more often now.

I have stayed at the Valdosta Wal-Mart a couple of times with no issues. Eggs hitting the coach would not have woken me up though. When the hearing aids come out I miss most things. And DW wouldn't have been able to hear it over my snoring.

Two groups of kids that did pranking (who are now adults) -

1. Those that pranked and admit it.
B. Those that never got caught...

Love to hear stories of natural consequences, and restorative justice!!
No bodily harm required... Lessons learned.
