Since that past 2 weeks there were 2 Home Invasions on this block of expensive houses (which went UN-reported at least in the English media I might add) I was going to PROTECT MY tush and the house, so I got into the car and drove down to the gate to find out why this person would keep honking for over 10 minutes at that point.
Since we've all heard stories (all OVER the world) of people pretending to be utility workers and Home Invasioning people, I asked to see his ID (and this time I looked CAREFULLY to see if the picture matched the face since banditos often steal someone's id). Now, NORMALLY I would say, CALL the company (which would mean having the electricity and water company phone numbers IN your cell), but my cell was in the shop - so I took a picture of his id up close (below), and one of him with the id (above. YIKES - I JUST realized, it would have been smarter to take a picture of the driver, the id AND the vehicle WITH the license plate! JUST in case).
I REALLY BUGS me that I even feel I MUST be so suspicious - but these are different times which call for being AWARE•CONSCIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
