Pumpkins and other decorations are a common sight on front porches these days.

One family in Washington D.C. is livid after a crook stole a pumpkin. The couple who lives in the home, located on U street, was so upset over the theft, they created a handwritten sign, hoping the thief will somehow get to read it.

It noted “To the person who stole my son’s pumpkin. Thank you for the life lesson. This will help teach him that sometimes people are mean for no reason and you just have to brush it off.”

There was also an additional phrase on the sign pointing out that her toddler son could not yet read. The following line called the thief a not-to-flattering expletive.

There were originally four pumpkins in total that were placed on the porch. Becky Reina told reporters that the family had all worked together to carve them.

One represented her while another pumpkin was for her husband and the remaining two were for her infant daughter and 2-year-old son. A photo of her sign was taken and shared on social media. It has since gone viral.
