    Gypsys have done it for years when they used to sell clover and pegs around streets

    This happens with motorbikes, they stalk your house and then etch how many bikes are in the garage, ready to be robbed :Sad:

    If the signs are correct we best all go out and chalk our own houses, save them the bother of putting a 'nothing worth stealing' sign up:thumb:

    Here, in Crail, on the east coast of Scotland there are many chalk circles in the street, but I don't think anyone's going to steal anything because they're usually around dog turds!!

    Council round here use yellow spray paint to convey they know whatever it is has been inspected and will be sorted.

    We used to have a gentleman of the road walking up and down the length of our street (it's miles) and I must admit, if I passed him in the car and we were going the same way, I made a point of throwing fag ends out for him, I mean ones I'd had about 2 drags on. Which I douted first. (Is that how you spell it in this context?) Now Pete will know cos he'll read this, and tell me I was potty.

    Haven't seen him for ages, hope he's OK.

    But as to chalk markings they used to say all this when I was a child in the 50s, but in those days TBH, chalk marks just meant we'd been playing hopscotch outside your house !

    Be careful mr smug Merle, thieving is not exclusive to Liverpool,in fact as people country wide become desparate through unemployment the whole country is at risk from thieves, check your locks before you go to bed Mr Cool:Eeek:

    We used to get chalk markings on the pavements laid by Jehovah's witnesses, I got fed up one time after getting woke up after a 12 hour night shift by the pests knocking on the door,I couldn't help myself and told them where to go in jerky movements, I later noticed a chalk mark outside the path and found it meant they recognised they would not be welcome at this address.:thumb:

    most burglars tend to ring the bell or knock the door first to see whos home. after hearing the snarling and barking followed by what sounds like a tazmanian devil hit the door, they dont hang around to meet my mrs:Rofl1:

    seriously with a minimum of 3 staffies and as many as 5 loose in the house, nobody would be stupid enough to enter my home uninvited. even guests get worried on occasions. i sometimes have to remind people that they are entering the dogs' home

    salesmen get scared shitless but burglars and other pond life will be eaten:Eeek:
