Re: Eggs thrown on window of apartment

Get into an egg fight and buy a giant super soaker water gun as back up. I couldn't imagine more fun but don't run out of ammo

What offense is it exactly when you by mistake drop your jam sandwich on the bench?
If you drop a jam sandwich ( a very laaaaarge one or a dozen of them) on the bench, and get reported to the police, some CHF 100.-- are lost, and there will be a police-report about the "incident". As a minimum you will get reprimanded seriously and sternly by one of those ageless but trendwise rather "aging" women with their small dogs.

Hi guys, I'm in an apartment block, on first floor. One of my windows of my bedroom looks onto a side road with benches outside.

I've heard people complaining about these benches area and this side of the apartments coz at night, like 3 or 4am, you get sometimes groups of youths sitting there making noise.

For the first time in my life, yesterday when I came home from work - I had eggs thrown on one window where I had left the blinds up.

What should I do? Report incident to immobile company? I have no idea how to find out who did it but would love to know
I really don t know what to say. I had similiar problem with eggs but it is even worse because I got two eggs on my head ( lower lip). Some guy hit me from the car so did not see who had done it. It was around 22.00h two days before my wedding day. Can you imagine!!! At the pharmacy didn t have me a lot so I took a fish from the freezer and put it onto my lips. Guess what?It worked more than any other gel or creme. On my wedding day I looked perfect However, that night I was furious and if had had opportunity to wrote down his car numer plates I would have reported him.

Re: Eggs thrown on window of apartment

The ideal response to window-egging is car keying. Find out who did it and key their car, if they have no car, retaliate by keying the tramway or the train next to you. Only then will you feel relieved

If you want all the fun of keying without the damage just take a length of wet dental floss and stick it along side the car. It will remain in place after the water evaporates, and the visual effect is that of a deep scratch rather than a piece of string. Results increase in effectiveness in proportion to the value of the car .

What a clever idea! But a travesty if one went to the trouble of putting the wet floss on the car then missed witnessing the initial reaction of the owner!

I only once had a problem with an egg. But that egg to my luck landed one or two meters behind me. It was just after a certain incident in Istanbul, and I DID hear somebody shouting "Schiiss-Türk" but did not realize that I was meant, as I am not Turkish. I reacted by walking more swiftly then before

Heavy ? It is
- Verstoss gegen die öffentliche Ordnung
- Belästigung von Passanten im öffentlichen Raum
- Beschädigung öffentlichen Eigentums
- Grober Unfug
- Veranlassung eines polizeilichen Prozederes

Re: Eggs thrown on window of apartment

I have confronted people who do things like this and usually they get so scared of being confronted that they disappear forever. Don't confront in a mean way, be nice and inquisitive but authoritative. I have had to really scare some kids in the past, it's not easy to do as a 110 pound woman, but surprisingly, young people get intimdated easily.

I have never thrown an egg but perhaps someday I will have the opportunity to throw one. I have also neve been egged Many years ago, I did however have my landlord put a nail under my car tire and it popped. He was a freaking prick. Of course it went through and couldn't be repaired & I had to get a new tire. Point being, try not to rub people the wrong way.
