Its unbelievable how some ADULTS conduct themselves.
Friday I was a late morning sleeper. We had gone out to Birmingham, AL to the Alabama Theater to see Jeff Dunham and his array of puppets. Remember those clips I posted a while back of him? More about that later, this is more of a rant, a steamed rant.
Anyway, we didnt get back home til almost one thirty in the morning. Ian still had to get up at five and go to work. I let the animals out at daylight and went back to bed.
Why am I telling all this. Well, for one thing I was still in my nightgown. For another I didnt have any eggs that morning. I was sold out.
So when two ladies came pulling up ( maybe been here twice, not regular every week customers) I was just not going to answer the door when they knocked. I wasnt dressed and didnt have eggs anyway.
The knock never came. I got up from what I was doing to investigate the lack of knocking or ringing of the doorbell. I went upstairs to look out of Shelbys bathroom window. You can see the whole back of the property from there.
Well, your not going to believe this. These two women just helped themselves to wandering around the back yard. Giving themselves a tour of my animals! Opened the gate and went right on through.
What if I had had an animal loose back there that could have hurt them? Then what? Would I get sued by these idiots? I could hardly believe my eyes.
I went and got Shelby, told her to take a gander out the back. She had a stricken look on her face, as I know I did when I first saw them wandering about back there.
She said, WHAT are they doing???
Itold her I guessed they were taking a tour, helping themselves to a look see.
Her first reaction was telling me to be sure to watch and make sure they dont steal any animals.
Once they finally left the back, they came onto the back screen porch and knocked.
Oh no, they did not want me to come to the door NOW. Not NOW.
So I held my breath, held my tongue and waited for them to leave.
The next day I went to Walmart I got two NO TRESPASSING signs, one for each gate, AND I put the locks BACK on the gate. Ian hadnt liked them being on there, it was inconvenient and irritated him. I put them back on, and put up the signs.
As Bill Engvall would say...
HERES YOUR SIGN.....
What a couple of dummies. You dont just go walking back into someones property like that! What is wrong with people?
Just because I am nice to you and friendly, and if you ask I will give you a tour of my animals does not give you free range to come and take a tour anytime you damn well please!!! Good GRIEF! UGH!
It is a shame that we have to put locks and signs up...but there is no shortage of stupid people here in the area...so I did what had to be done.
But can you believe it? Can you? How embarrassed will they be, the next time they come to get eggs, and see the locks and the signs up. Probably won't even register in their foggy brains that it was them that caused it all.
