You break into someone's house but your not allowed to steal anything. You just do one small thing to disrupt their lives. What would you do ?
Comments included :
Hide the batteries from all the remotes
Cook a lavish meal from the contents of the freezer and leave the washing up

Set the all clocks back one hour.

Take the light bulbs out and hide them

Go into their wardrobes and shorten the lengths of trouser legs and the sleeves on shirts and blouses.

Pull the labels off all the tins and packets in the pantry

Turn all their books on the bookshelves the wrong way around, so that they can’t see the titles and authors. But I do like Chewbaccas!

Well you have all thought of nasty things.
I’d clean their bathroom.👼🏻🤣

Bellanonna Mon 19-Feb-18 09:51:49

But would that disrupt their lives Pamela?
Put fish inside the hollow bit of the curtain rail (I read that some disgruntled holiday home renter did that)

I'd take my grandchildren along to play football on the lawn..which would then resemble a battlefield (as does mine now😟)

Hide the car keys

PamelaJ1 Mon 19-Feb-18 17:27:15

I take your point Belladonna, however I think it would make me feel a little discombobulated and luckily They’d be able to sit down with a drink to get over the shock without feeling guilty about their disgusting bathroom.

Walk the mud that Farview's GC have caused from the back door to the front!

Rearrange the furniture so it becomes a mirror image of what it is now.

Cling film over the toilet seat.

BBbevan Mon 19-Feb-18 19:35:32

Remove every toilet roll and kitchen roll

Paper the ceilings with woodchip ....

Chewbacca Mon 19-Feb-18 23:02:02

Change the locks

AIBU to find this quite cruel and not really funny?
I know it’s “only a game” but there is an underlying edge which makes me uncomfortable. Your home should be your “safe space”

Jalima1108 Tue 20-Feb-18 10:30:21

This made me gasp when I read the OP

Glad it's not just me then MawBroon

Nonnie Tue 20-Feb-18 10:31:37

I was thinking the same Maw. Just imagine how you would feel if you came home and found something not as you left it, I doubt you would ever get over it. Now we are going to be accused of having no sense of humour,

Jalima1108 Tue 20-Feb-18 10:39:51

It just reminded me of when the home of some of DM's friends was broken into; not only did the burglars steal precious items, they smeared the walls with excrement.


Squiffy Tue 20-Feb-18 10:44:00

I agree Maw. I know the OP is only meant in fun, but to me there's a not very pleasant side to it because it mentions 'breaking in' to someone's house. I think I'd view it differently if these were just tricks played if someone was in the house legitimately.

So self righteous, can’t have a laugh !

Aquagran I am afraid this thread is a couple of months out of
