Will someone please tell me what happened to common sense. Where did it go?
Yesterday, another energy group sent a passel of minions through our neighborhood to recruit sales. I hate people coming to our door to try to change our electric service, tell me about their nut of the day religion, and/or sell me stuff I don’t need.
Anyway, the young man who came to our door and rang the doorbell also opened my storm door. Immediately, he rankled me by that action, I didn’t even wait for him to open his mouth before I told him we weren’t interested.
After a few seconds inside I realized I was still very angry at the young man and the reason why hit me like a bolt from the blue. He had endangered my dogs. Lucky for him that both were in their crates napping at the time. Had they been loose when I opened the door, they probably would’ve bolted through the storm door he held open and run him over.
I walked back outside hoping to catch him. I did. I told him I had some advice for him, and explained how he had endangered himself by opening the outside door. Glad he didn’t learn that lesson the hard way.
You all have a good one!
