I saw you car and pickup. But you didn't answer your door. :(

    Z71bill...I had just been awakened, and thought about telling them about the gun, but not sure how to communicate that in the wee hours. It happened quickly, but the action I took was successful. If you saw my foyer, you would note that it was well hidden from their view. Unless they wanted to enter. Then I would have told them.

    Probably not that unusual for cops to knock on citizen doors at o’dark thirty and have them armed. What I did, worked for that occasion. I have since placed a bookcase by the front door that I can quickly hide anything controversial. But of course, it’ll never again occur.

    It's good training. If you mark who called the locals will convince them not to call in future. Crime stats show fewer calls... We be doing good.,,

    I had a teacher "learn me dat ". On a test there was blatant cheating as teacher read newspaper. As it was on a curve I felt cheated (that I didn't cheat)
    So I wrote on test. "While you are reading paper students are using cheat sheets, passing notes with answers"
    The next day at start of class the teacher read that. Asked me to name students cheating. "That's not my job". Of course a few people tried to punish me. Some were dumb enough to try physical. The verbal was worse.
    I learned the lesson. The teacher didn't care if we cheated.

    Dumb me I expected no response, maybe quiet "thanks for info" but next exam a announcement " seems there is some cheating going on. Spread out, I catch any cheating you fail..." A general warning, punishment to those who continued.
    That teacher was upset I never treated him with respect from then on.

    Hahaahahahahaha!!
    As it turned out, I knew the 'sector supervisor'/sergeant.
    (I know quite a few deputies on the local department.)



    Yup.
    Where we are, until the Leyland Cypress trees that we planted grew tall, we could see/hear all of the crap that went on, behind our house.

    I'd call the sheriff's department and explain the 'new episode' of "Let's Make a Dope Deal" going on, on the path through the woods, across the street from our house.

    EVERY time I called, the deputy/deputies would knock on the door, and then our house would be vandalized.

    I finally asked the Sheriff if he wanted me to stop calling, because I was tired of the vandalism.

    Several of these druggies were eventually caught and the vandalism stopped, too.

    I never answer my door. If anyone I wanted to see was coming to my house it would be prearranged. Anyone who knocks on my door that I am no expecting is surely selling something, wants a donation, or is up to no good. Why should I feel obligated to endure a pitch for something I don't have any interest in just because you rang my doorbell?

    The original was much better.

    It read like Von tripping on acid.

    When those clip board holding clowns in the mall ask me to give them a few minutes, I ask "how many?" sometimes they answer sometimes their like "whut¿".
    If they say ten minutes, I ask if they have ten dollars to give me. They always say "no".
    I keeps walking.

    I realize that's probably frustrating for y'all, but that's funny!

    My “No Soliciting” sign on the front door wards away many unwanted interruptions.

    My wife got me one of those
    "Warning, trespassers will be shot. Survivors will be shot again" signs. Hand painted looking on a nice piece of wood.
    Then, she won't let me hang it by the front door. \_0_/

    Perhaps that’s a good thing. Not wanting to let strangers know there are firearms inside.

    I never have a problem with relatives or friends just popping over. I will do that to a few people that I know that don't mind as well.
