I had my DirecTV dish mounted on a pole for less than 2 days, and it was already stolen. This really, really, really sucks.

DirecTV says they'll credit me for my programming charges from now until I get my service back up, but I still have to go buy a new dish and I don't see how I can possibly prevent that from getting stolen, too. My neighborhood sucks.

At least it only took the Assistant Chief of Police like 5 minutes to get to my house to take my report; of course it's not like it will do any good since my insurance deductible is like 20 times the cost of a new dish so filing a claim would be completely pointless.

I don't know, I think a razorwire fence and landmines would be more effective.

You need to replace the deer with a scary clown or something.

On a pessimistic note, isn't the deductible cumulative? So after 19 dishes are stolen, they're "free" to replace after that. Only if you file a claim, natch.

I suggest drilling a hole in the pole and using a bike u-lock next time.
