Yes many times. But I did the same thing when I was a kid. The few worst times I just sprayed pepper spray on the items they were picking the worst on and it stopped. That was over 16 years ago. Today I'd probably get my house burned down for that trick. Different time I guess.

Neighbor kids at our house in Chicago -- and I wanted to kill them. I backed the car out of the garage and there was this gang of kids, 10-12 years old, on bikes and skateboards, throwing tomatoes at each other. They had been around to the side of the house and stripped all my plants of dozens of ripe ones I was planning to pick. I nearly ran into them before I saw them in my rearview mirror. Kinda wish I had.

No one has EVER heard me scream like I did that day. The kids in suburban Chicago are Bart Simpsons. I hated them. The kids here in Kansas are polar opposites, and I adore them.

My mom used to grow pineapples in the back yard and was convinced that the neighbors were stealing them. Until one night when she saw a raccoon making off with an almost ripe one nearly as big as he was.

Yes. Apples and watermelons (that happened when we were away).

Don't grow melons any longer and squirrels get most of the apples. In fact, I have less than a dozen left on the tree as of an hour ago and it was so loaded after fruit set in June I thought I might have to thin them. There are dozens of half eaten apples all over the yard.

My god I cannot believe the rudeness that abounds around the country . My grandmother told me never to take flowers or vegetables out of peoples yards without asking or she would light me up like a christmas tree and she meant it . I have had tomatoes taken off our plants before and I caught a squirell getting them so I let him have them poor thing was hungry . I cant kill anything and wont let anything go hungry .
