Whoooo wheeee we had a rough start this morning. It started somewhere around 5:30 or so, Tiff ran into the bedroom, turned on the light and was saying something about somebody being in our yard. I was still pretty much asleep, well no actually I was knocked out. At first I thought, well it must be the construction workers that have been working on the culverts lining the highway that runs in front of the house. I figured it was that, or someone just turning around in our driveway, which happens ALL the time, I guess people miss south blvd or they just turn off HWY 90 too soon, or who knows, people are crazy! Anyway, at first I didn't think anything of it, but Tiff was pretty insistent and then I heard a door close. Now I am moving from confusion to anger, who in the world is showing up at my house, when it is still dark!
By this time the person has gotten out of his car and is knocking on our front door, which was thankfully locked. This of course get the dog all riled up and wakes up the baby... think I was mad earlier... So I am up now getting my contacts in so I can see clearly and I was to our door that leads onto the porch, also locked. I couldn't see anything but an outline of some guy who is continually knocking on the door, shouting for us to open the door. Mental note, if I am ever stuck and need some help, banging on someone's door and shouting for them to let me in is not the way to inspire anyone lend me a hand.
I am not about to open the door, here I am thinking we have some crazy out in the yard, who wants who knows what. Tiff is running around with the baby calling her parents, all the while the dog is not happy at all and is barking away. By this time we have called the law and have a patrolman in route, but here we are stuck with this crazy out in the yard. At least the person has stopped banging on the door and shouting, obviously we aren't going to let him in, he gets back in his truck and tries to start it. Turns out his truck was pootin' out on him.
Pretty soon the police do arrive, pretty quick by the way, definitely appreciate that and then Tiff's dad gets here. As stated the man did have some truck problems, he just picked the wrong house to terrorize at 5:30 in the morning. Fact is nobody has any business stopping at anyone's house that early in the morning, let alone banging on someone's door and hollering to have the door opened.. not like isn't a convenience store, what 500 yards from the house at the end of the road. Some people......
