Did you solve the mystery?
Sometimes landlords plan to sell a house and deny it to the tennants when asked.
Years ago, early 90's I think, a guy in a big truck parked in front of a home we were renting. I did ask my landlord later and he said he knew
nothing about it and the house wasn't going up for sale.
Anyways I was just about to mow the lawn and he was parked on the grass. I started mowing, thinking he was just parked for a bit to do whatever, but
as I got closer he was still there and in my way. He kept staring at my house at what appeared to be the roof section or power lines. I approached the
driver's side to ask him to move. He had his head down not seeing me, but as soon as he saw me beside his door, he quickly slammed down a cover over
a screen/monitor that appeared to be inset on the dashboard. I don't know if they had laptops back then and if they do, why was the screen on the
bottom and inset into the dash? The screen was aqua coloured with some text, that I couldn't read, he slammed it too fast. I asked him nicely to
move, but he just ignored me. So I went back to mowing, thinking he would eventually have to move. I even stopped mowing halfway and went inside,
waiting for him to go, because I didn't like him sitting and staring at me and my home.
He wouldn't leave, so I went back to him and asked him what he was doing, why was he staring at my house. He just said "nothing". I was quite
inquisitive, but he wouldn't respond. I told him he was in my way and if whatever he was doing had nothing to do with my home, to go park on the
other side of the street, or better yet use the parking lot across the street. I don't recall the exact event now, but I more or less became very
stern with him and said go away you're annoyong me and being intrusive. Finally he drove into the parking lot, and continued staring. I must have
asked him 3 times to move off the grass.
The thing that bothered me most was that screen I saw. It was the size of an average size computer monitor, and when he closed it, it was flush with
his dashboard and hidden, and him staring at the roof where the power lines connect, like he was studying or programming something.
A few months later, I think, when we were out one night we came home to our front door smashed in. It was wide open, but nothing was stolen or moved.
Later when I went to open a kitchen cupboard, one of the doors wouldn't open. I noticed an inch wide gap where the cupboards join in the corner that
was causing it not to open, because it no longer fit. We couldn't figure out how this happened, and concluded the intruder might have jumped up onto
the units to see what, if anything was on top of them. But that hardly made sense. It had simply shifted the entire row of cupboards, and never did
get fixed. The landlord fixed the front door, but was mystified by the cupboard shift.
