Make sure your wife knows to never open the door either.
I once had a guy come to my door on a Saturday claiming to be with a company offering free manicures for signing up for some membership of a salon up
the road from my house. I told him I wasn’t interested but that maybe my neighbor might be. I knew she wasn’t home, but he kept going on and
I watched as he left and thought it was strange he didn’t go to my neighbors, and he was on foot. Where I lived was approximately 2 miles from
where this salon was.
So I mention to my neighbor what happened when she got home, and told her I thought it was odd. She didn’t think anything of it. In fact, she said
she probably would be interested. So I chocked it up to being paranoid.
The next weekend came, and my neighbor was on a business trip which meant I had her Labrador at my place, I always watched her dog for her when she
traveled, which was quite often. I also had a Labrador, and the dogs got along fine.
I hear a knock on my screen door so I go to the door and it’s the same guy. He started with the same pitch; I thought wth does this idiot have a
short memory, then as I was starting to tell him “I told you last week”, he grabbed the screen door handle and tried to get in, but it was locked,
he was pulling hard and it woke the dogs sleeping in my bedroom. They came barreling out barking fiercely. The guy ran away.
That was the last time I ever opened my door to someone I didn’t know.
