    <laugh> they’re in our room 9/10 night anyway.

    One of my good pals is a boxer and he once caught a burglar in his garage. Said he punched his face in for 20 minutes before his rage subsided and the bloke’s face was just mush.

    It’d be nice to be one of those type of lads.

    yeah well that changes things.

    If somebody broke into my house my first instinct would be to get them out. Or batter them to a bloody pulp on the spot.

    Or get a Tibetan Mastiff.

    We always hide our kitchen knives now, as it seems most of them just take a knife from the kitchen if they’re planning on using one.

    A good few years ago my brother saw a burglar enter a pensioner's bungalow across the road from him, so he picked up his shovel from his van, which greeted his face when he came back out of the window. Pointless calling the police in that situation so my nephews put him in the van drove him to a local beauty spot and got him to see the error of his ways.

    Most police would probably just **** themselves if they were on-site anyway.

    You’d be surprised how people react in the heat of the moment. I like to think of myself as a fairly laid back person who doesn’t go looking for grief. But I found myself rushing down to a mates shop with a shovel, because I thought It was getting done over. Turned out that it was just the wind that had blown the doors open. But I was fully ready to smash some skulls.

    You can always be sure, if someone has done something, Piskie will have also been there in some form or other as well. <laugh>

    ****ing amateurs. The pros get in via popping out a lock, get the keys and **** off, as the vast majority of people leave their car keys downstairs either near the door or in the kitchen. Not being funny mate, but yours is exactly the kind of motor they target.

    The only reason I’ve never got a shotgun licence is because I’d not trust myself if someone broke in. I leave the car keys downstairs, as if someone comes for the motors they can have them, if they can figure out how to open the gates....

    I just happened to be passing when the great train robbery took place. I’d decided to jump onto the last carriage and try and wrestle the assailants, but I was on my way to get some fish and chips so I ended up swerving it

    It was during the lockdown and I thought somebody had taken the opportunity to use the fact that nobody was around to go and do over his shop.

    Was gonna call the police and then realised they wouldn’t get there for at least about an hour down here. So ran to the van, grabbed my shovel from the veg patch and steamed off down there ready to sort it out myself <laugh>

    Yeah that’s how they got into mine, have non-snap locks now.

    They’ll need a tow truck to get my car though, have a ghost immobiliser so I could leave the keys in the car and they’d still not get off with it.
