Neighborhood Solicitator

An email that was sent to a neighborhood watch coordinator:

"Just wanted to give you a heads up about the latest neighborhood solicitor. XXX just had a guy (w/m) come to the door offering "air quality testing". He told her he needed to come in to do a demo (uh, no). He also asked her if she lived alone and some other random, unnecessary questions. He was driving a green mini-van that was parked a few houses away so she couldn't get the tag. After he left our house he went straight to the van and left so she's not sure if he hit any other houses on our street before us. She's also not sure if anyone else was in the van. Just wanted to give you all a heads up. Who hits up houses at 3 in the afternoon on a Wednesday....hhhhmmmm.

Maybe it was the same gentleman who "tested the air" in our backyard after busting open our fence gates and took our weed wacker, saws-all, gas can and power washer. There is much more air in our shed now. Jerk......

It sounds like we're being too polite and not calling these folks out to the carpet until after the fact.

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

Let's get things straight, the hoi poloi are not out for our best interests. If it takes someone on a blog to tell you that you might be a target, then you're already behind the eight ball.
