          Here is an idea, write the story about when you were a kid and ding dong ditching, I bet that was an absolutely funny story. smile

      If that is the worst thing my kid does, I'll be a happy parent. Doorbell ditching can be annoying to the "victim", but what does it really hurt. It's fun for the kids and they cause no harm.

      I'd prefer that than have my kids throw snowballs at cars... Which is also pretty fun.

      It depends on if they leave anything behind!

      When my grandpa was a teen, 80 some years ago, he and his friends would put a paper sack of fresh cow poop on someone's step, light it afire, and then ding dong ditch.  The highlight was seeing someone stomp the fire out!  wink

      Of course, May Day is for leaving a basket of flowers behind.

    We used to do it, but normally only around Guy Fawkes night, when the fireworks were on sale, so we would ring and run leaving a lighted banger on the doorstep.

    What horrid little boys we were...

    I don't think that it is annoying not rude, but it could be dangerous for the kid. You never know what type of crazy person's door you're ringing.

    No, I don't think it is rude at all. In fact we have (my gamer friends and I) did it at least 4 times last night.  Just for the lolz big_smile

    I think its pretty funny for kids to do. I used to do it when I was a kid but it had an inappropriate name. I like the name of yours better.

    I always liked the part where you are running like mad to go hide and sometimes watch how the person would react.

    I think its harmless fun , unless they keep it up all night , we used to prank phone call but kids can't really do that much anymore , I would much rather have my kid out ding dongging on doors than , drinking , doing drugs or getting pregnant smile

    It's all a growing-up process...see what you can get away with.  I kind of wish there was more of that behavior coming from adults, in a fun way, that is, you know, with just fun in mind and no hostility.

    We kids would use the phone to call a number out of the phone book and ask for Elizabeth Taylor.  (This is like the Prince Albert in a can trick.)  And call that number twice more.  Then the third time, saying, "This is Elizabeth...are there any messages for me?"

    For parents who are paying attention, as mine were, this is totally unacceptable and we were called to task.  But it sure was fun in the process!  Once was enough.  Then we found other things to do.

    Great thread.
