Never mess with a man’s lawn…or his shrubs…

If you ever cruise through suburban neighborhoods on a weekend, you’ll see hordes of men lovingly caring for their yards.

And one person told an interesting story about how his dad got revenge when someone dared to mess with his shrubs…

That was definitely not a good development.

You can imagine that Dear Old Dad was pretty peeved about this.

Well, a line had obviously been drawn in the sand.

And his dad figured, if that’s the way you want to play it, then so be it. But he had a plan…

Uh oh. It was now going to be “rebar to the rescue.”

So it was time to play the waiting game.

Dads are patient like that, in case you didn’t know.

That was his dad’s “a-ha” moment.

And the smile on his face told the whole story.

Now it was time to assess the damage.

Like he said earlier, his dad was playing the long game, and these guys from the county weren’t expecting this at all.

And his dad had a great response.

Zing! That’s how it’s done, son!

And of course, there was never any follow-up from the county because they knew they didn’t have a leg to stand on.

I’d say that this guy’s dad definitely won this round, wouldn’t you?
