How many times is it acceptable

to ring on someone's doorbell and ask for your ball back in one day?
The teenage kids next door have racked up 8 times in the last 3 hours and I'm starting to get annoyed. They can't get into our garden to get the ball back so I can't tell them just to get it without bothering me.
I've got a whole flipping summer of this to look forward to. Grrrrrrr

The local kids climb on to an NTL cable box thats fixed to the outside of our high garden wall to retrieve their balls, usually they ask but occasionally I can get quite a fright when they just climb over without asking.
Last week a boy about 9/10 did this and I jumped when he ran past my window. I shouted oi to him and got a cheeky "its my ball and I'm getting it back"
Oh the silent glee I felt when he couldn't climb back out
Eventually I helped him to get back over, but I was busy
