For some people turning turning the other cheek is a lot easier said than done. That’s the way it is for this prankster who hid the keys of a workman who repeatedly blocked his driveway. When it comes to getting even, some folks just can’t help themselves.
For Jaireme Barrow of Tacoma, this wasn’t about helping himself: it was all about exacting revenge. And and in this case, revenge is a dish best served loudly.
Barrow said over the last two months, four of my packages have gone missing, and I felt like I wanted to get even.
Since he knew the thieves were attracted to any package on the porch, Barrow decided to give them a special box.
He got an empty Amazon box then fitted it with a firing mechanism armed with a blank shotgun shell.
When the thief attempted to pick up the box, the shell fired. Since it was a blank, it was harmless, but it sure would be loud.
His surveillance cameras captured the trap in action. A woman stops her car then walks onto his property; then she reaches for the box. The shot rang out, sending her into a panic as she runs away.
