Blog: Doorbell Ditch Karma

by Rick Worthington

 

Forgive me, please. You see, I was a good kid for the most part, but I did doorbell ditch houses for fun a few times. Not many times, but I did it.

Not familiar with the art of the Doorbell Ditch? It works like this…

Step 1: You walk up to the front door of a home.
Step 2: Ring the doorbell. (The more times the better)
Step 3: Run like hell.

Childish. Stooopid. Really dumb. Can’t stop thinking about how childish this is.

Last night, it happened again. This time I was the victim. It happened on a rainy Thursday night – just before midninght!

Whoever did the deed was a master!

Three loud knocks, and several rings of the doorbell. It scared the be-jeepers out of me! I threw off the covers of my warm bed and sprinted to the front door, expecting to see a policeman or something. I peeked out the window, and nobody was there. I went out in my bedclothes…in the rain…nobody anywhere.

I don’t know who you are, but you got me. I’m trying to be a good sport.

By the way, just a warning you might consider. I don’t want to see anybody get hurt.  FYI: There are lots of people here in Idaho that are packin’ heat when they come to the door at midnight.

Good Luck!

Halloween Blog: Candy Corn – YUCK! By Rick Worthington 10/31/19 Let me just go ahead and get this out of the way. Candy corn is gross. If you give out candy corn on Halloween, kids are leaving your house upset. Little Jimmy and Suzzy are complaining to Mom and Dad, and your neighbors are embarrassed…

I Love Mike Kasper…But Sometimes He’s Just…Wrong

While some may celebrate Meridian’s dedication to automotive safety by passing a “Hands Free Ordinance”, I do not. Driving any automobile is dangerous. Distractions are abound. Be it inside or outside the car. Screaming kids, eating, makeup application, shaving, pets, and your radio (not us, everyone else) to name a few from the inside. Then…
