I don’t live in the best neighborhood in the world. Currently we have contractors working on our house replacing the majority of our front veranda and they will be replacing our front and side doors with something a bit more secure as well as non drafty.
I like our contact guy with the contracting company. He was joking with me this morning that he’s already warned his guys to leave nothing on site not even a lunchbox for fear that the locals will walk with it.
But he said when he was working on taking out the veranda yesterday, a couple of middle aged guys walk by on the street ask them why they’re doing work on a cop’s house. Our contractor replies, “Hey man I’m not prejudiced, I’ll work on a cop’s house, I’ll work on your house, hell I’ll work on anybody’s house if they got the money. But I don’t think the guys a cop, the sign on their truck says they do graphics or something.”
The guy just shakes his head and said, “Ain’t you ever heard of an undercover cop?”
I sure hope this rumor gets around to all the bad eggs in our neighborhood. I mean seriously, who breaks into a house if they think a cop lives there?
