I was told at a young age that damaged mailboxes and federal penitentiary were intimately connected. 
I am in the pink when sawing cedar.

forgive their enemies (either the neighbor or the mailbox) or talk to them about why they are hurt.

I think probably the pot and/or weekend booze numbs them and alters their judgement a bit. "Just for fun" is different than asking forgiveness. One takes some forethought, the other is an afterthought.  :D :D

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

Waddn't none of me;  been 50-plus years since I was in high school................in fact, we held our 50th reunion last Fall.  I was one of the 'good kids';  not because I didn't have the urges to get into trouble, but because I was afraid my dad would kill me :(.  As I recall, the mailbox/purple ink thing happened in an adjoining county.

Never messed with mailboxes, for the same reason Cedarman mentioned.  ;D But now I did tip over an outhouse or 2, and may have been involved in moving 1 or 2 back about 3 or 4 feet   :-X

It was always the "town" kids that did in the mailboxes.  Us "farm" kids" had to fix them. :)

I thought that title was reserved for the new spring calf that got too close to momma cow's exit hole.  :D
