Shorty your post reminded me of when we lived at the old house.  I got up one Saturday morning to fine our mailbox laying on the ground and the post in about a hundred pieces.  I was furious, but off to HD I went to get a new post (Mailbox was kind of dented but OK).  While I was at HD I saw a father with (I assumed his sons) buying a post and mailbox.  I had to make another stop before going home and when I got home there was the father and his son and son's buddy putting in a new post and mailbox.  The father was sitting on the tailgate of his truck supervising the boy's.   It seems the boy's went out Friday night parting and got a little wild and hit our mailbox.  Dad wakes up the next morning to find front end damage to the family car. 

 

There are still good folks out there but the low life's seem to take front stage.

You know that is one Dad that really is trying to teach responsibility. Not just telling him, but there to make sure it is done the whole way.

mine too but my arse would be red and sore for a long time...

 

 

Buddy of mine up the road has had his mail box blown to pieces a few times so i built him one that you can't hurt.. 10 inch pipe with one inch spacers on the inside then a 8 inch pipe inside. All welded up then cement to fill the gap. Welded to a 5 inch drill stem thats burried six feet in the ground and four feet outta the ground.
