This week's Crime Watch Wednesday brings us yet another tale of a suspicious man that turns out not to be all that suspicious after all. It was just about this time last year that I brought you the story of the man who thought he was going to be murdered because someone had the audacity to ring his bell? This one is even worse, folks.
A woman reported a suspicious looking man possibly attempting to break into her house around lunch time. She told police that he was knocking on her door and she was afraid that was the gateway action to actually breaking in. When police responded and demanded identification from the man, it turns out he was the woman's insurance agent and was there for an appointment that the woman had just made the day before. His story was confirmed with the woman. There is no indication as to whether she actually purchased insurance that day.
I know I was harsh on the first guy last year. Ignore your doorbell, no one is murdering you and so on. This woman? She made an appointment THE DAY BEFORE. Since she made the appointment, I can only assume she knew WHAT TIME HE WAS COMING. Therefore, she should have know the man KNOCKING ON HER DOOR was the guy SHE INVITED OVER.
Maybe I am asking for too much here?
Also, I have never had an insurance salesman even offer to come to my office let alone my house. I remember one time I had to sign some official paper crap (seriously not even necessary) and they wanted me to drive over an hour on my "lunch hour" to their office. Um, hi! I am your customer. Could you perhaps do something to accomodate me?
Yep. Still bitter.
