Default Christmas decorations- Had to remove them =(

Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after two days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever. Great stories. But two things made me take it down.

First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by.

Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder and almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn’t realize that it was fake until she climbed to the top. (She was not happy.) By the way, she was one of the many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn’t take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up into my yard.”


Yes, its a oldie, but goodie.

If by decoration you mean screw with people, yes. Hence the OP, folks keep stopping trying to help what they think is a guy about to fall off the roof.
