The OP explained they adore strawberries and have 300 plants in their yard:
But the neighborhood kids started stealing their strawberries, so the last time they caught them, they sprayed them with their garden hose:
It provoked a visit from furious parents to complain, and the OP threatened to spray them also if they didn't leave their property:
A Redditor advised them to get security cameras
Another one agreed
It's the OP's strawberries, not theirs
"Also aren’t the iPhone X supposedly waterproof?"
Chickenwire fence is the cheapest solution for a problem
A Redditor added the OP should get a "No Trespassing" sign also
"It’s such a bummer your hose got away from you like that"
"I'm a parent and I would volunteer you to spray my son with a hose if I caught him stealing."
"Get some cameras and cops involved next time"
They act like the OP is their private gardener
Redditor told the OP that they are not in the wrong for spraying children who steal with a garden hose, but they also advised them to consider calling the police the next time or installing security cameras. But tell us, what would you do if you were in the OP's shoes?
