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!
Of course, May Day is for leaving a basket of flowers behind.
of course its kinda rude, but sounds like it would be fun - I never did it! altho we used to make some stupid phone calls - like "hello - is your refrigerator running:? well, yu better go catch it!" hysterical laughing
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
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.
