Maybe it's just me and my overactive CSI watching mind...? But i do not allow STRANGERS into my home, ever! Today my husband had the day off from work. *knock, knock, knock* on the front door at around 11am. I said, "it's probably the mail lady if you want to answer and see if it's a package" So he get's up, answeres the door...and i can kind of hear her talking. It was a door-to-door sales person. I hear her as clear as if she was talking to me say, "so, can i come in and sit down and talk with you?" He said, "sure." I'm like....WHAT????! I'm sitting on the couch watching tv in my PJ's (so was he!). He leans into the back room and say's, "i'm not sure what she wants?" I give him the look of 'i'm gonna kick your ass if she comes inside our house' and tell him..."do NOT let her in our house!"
He goes back to the door and i'm leaning over watching this woman and now a MAN walk into our home. She's like, "so can i just like sit down." I got kinda mad and got up and said, "NO you can please LEAVE my house now!"
They walked out promptly.
But OMG! How old is my husband? My own 8 year old daughter knows to NOT let a complete stranger into our home. Not just 1 person, but he was about to let 2 people in that he still isn't quite sure what they were selling (if anything!)
I'm really not a happy camper with him today. I tried to talk to him about the situation, and he felt i was being over active with my thinking. i don't know that i will ever trust to leave him alone with Claire right now. If he is dumb enough to fall for a tall blonde door-to-door sales person with the "i'll be right back" and she comes back with a Strange MAN who now wants to come in our house! I honestly don't know what he was thinking?
So, is it normal to let door-to-door sales people into your home? I've never, ever done it! It's like living as a woman rule 101 in my book. But i supose he isn't a woman and didn't ever learn this rule of not allowing strangers into your home for NO reason other than saying, "can i come in and talk with you about 'our product'?" Not even knowing what the product was! She never said what she was selling when he said she could come inside and then would be back...coming back with another person.
Maybe i should think more of people of the world, but i watch the news and i see people every single night who did something dumb and something dumb/bad happened to them. I'm not only protecting myself in this life, but thinking of the safty of my daughter as well. Evidentally, my husband can take care of himself ;-)
