    yea...so i always leave my lights on for the whole night on Christmas Eve...I wake up Christmas morning, go to let the dog out, and notice the lights aren't on...so i think..."thats odd...hmmm"...well i look over at my candy canes and there are only 4 there...there are supposed to be 6 candy canes...two sets of 3...well some idiot decided to come snip two of my candy canes and steal them (why they didnt just unplug the whole set of 3 is beyond me)...so this must have caused some sort of surge to my outside outlets because none of them work now. I tried reseting them on the breaker, and pushing in the reset buttons on the outlets...but still no power...so now i gotta call the builder and get them to fix it...luckily i just moved in a couple months ago...blah...it wouldnt have been so bad if they would have just unplugged the set and took them...instead they had to blow my fricken outlets...grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Lol i used to do shit like that all the time when i was growin up.

    Consider yourself lucky.

    One of my neighbors had a gigantic "light up" santa clause on his front lawn. My best friend and I threw snowballs at it and broke something, because all the outdoor lights on this house went dead after we caused a some sort of surge (complete with sparks and such).

    I used to go out with friends popping everyone's inflatable snowmen and santa clauses :D. And drive around with a couple of loaded automatic paintball guns n blast at the ones that have like their whole yard littered with reigndeer and trees and santas all lit up. Actually paintball drivebys were more fun than anything back then :D:D:D.

    That really is messed up tho messing up your whole outside set of outlets I'd be pissed.

    i'd check to see if they snipped any more wires out of spite, or snipped them and got spooked

    is this popping the breakers or GFI as soon as you reset them?

    you might want to try turning the breaker off then back on, and hit test and reset on the GFI
