Yes this is based on something that happened to me, here's the real story: I was sitting in my kitchen, having a cup of tea. Life was wonderful. All of the sudden I hear a crash from outside. I look through the window and I see a demolished flowerpot on my yard. It took me a few seconds to realize that some idiot had just destroyed my own flowerpot at my own property. That and the fact that I had to clean up his mess made me furious. So I went for my baseball bat and ran outside (I'm not usually that kind of guy but this really pissed me off). I can imagine that I must've looked pretty insane, running around a demolished flowerpot with a baseball bat. This is what the neighbours saw, so understandably they called the cops. When they arrived at the scene they thought that I was some kind of maniac. The mayor difference beetween the comic strip and the real thing is that I didn't get arrested. I explained the situation and they understood my rightful anger. Apparently there were some teenagers running aroud that night, vandalizing at random. I dunno if they cought them or not.. Hopefully they did.
At the time I weren't that amused. But now that I look back on what happened I just laugh, you gotta admit; it's pretty funny
