They would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn’t for that meddling Ring.
A group of teenagers were caught on a Ring doorbell toilet-papering a California home — but the response isn’t what you’d expect.
Mom Aubrey Dupree Seymour, of San Clemente, woke up and saw her yard and trees covered in toilet paper, but instead of getting upset, or even annoyed, she took to the San Clemente Life Facebook group and sarcastically applauded the youths on their prank.
“To the kids that TP’d our house last night, I have a few choice words for you...AMAZING job, you have given me faith that there are still youths that choose to go ABOVE and BEYOND,” Seymour wrote in the San Clemente Life Facebook group. “One day I believe you will change the world with your DETERMINATION to be the best.”
Seymour shared the post on June 14, and since then it has received 341K reactions and 125K shares, with many commenting on the woman’s “fantastic attitude” and letting “kids be kids.”
“Oh ya rite of teen years lol,” one wrote.
“Nice TP job. Such harmless fun,” another commented on the viral post.
“I love your response. Now you know,…..Your home will only get TPd if you or your children are truly loved by others.This is the best sign of affection. Your post made it to Georgia. Thanks for the good laugh,” another wrote.
“Your awesome outlook on the situation is clearly going viral, way to be an awesome person and spread your positivity around!” one person from Arizona wrote.
Seymour said her reaction to the prank was not to “get angry,” citing parents are “so quick to condemn kids for the things they do,” but instead laugh about the harmless fun and hopefully remind adults of their days as kids when they might have also toilet papered a house during summer.
Though Seymour, who told FOX 11 the teenagers used 72 rolls for the job, isn’t just letting sleeping dogs lie.
“I do have you on my ring and when I find out who you are...game on my friend, we too have a Costco size supply of TP,” she wrote on Facebook.
“They are wonderful boys that have known my son since elementary school, but don’t think we won’t be getting them back,” she emphasized to FOX 11.
Seymour shared a follow-up photo of her kids cleaning up the paper, cheekily referring to it as “child labor.”
