What do you do when your doormat repeatedly goes missing? Buy another one? Look around the estate for it? Or post pictures to Facebook?
This guy, Imgur user LogicalCore, chose the latter. But what began as a normal spot of suspected heavy wind, turned out to be something far more sinister and comical.

After nailing it down, confusion kicked in. How strong can wind be?
So he nailed it down using a power-drill…
But then things started to get heated…
Note the comment… That, right there, is the doormat thief.
