I had an interesting moment today. We were having some work done on our sewer line this afternoon (the tree roots have blocked the line, and since the previous owners didn't pay attention to these little details, we now have a "situation") and I was home alone.
They dug up the yard, put their little snake thingy down the pipe, and began roto-ing their rooter. (rooting their roto? whichever.) Anyway, the one guy looking down the line with a flashlight then says to me, "I'd like to see the basement." and wanted me to show him where it was.
So. I let him into the house, leading him to the basement, all the while thinking, "I am an idiot. Idiot. Why didn't I get the gun earlier? Dumbdumbdumb." Granted, I'm probably paranoid...there was another man outside, we've used their service before, and they are perfectly nice, but....
...yeah, there's always that "but."
