    So I have sort of an odd story.

    Friday night I crashed early, probably about 10pm or so. I had had a pretty full day, so I was worn out, and I got into one of those deeeep sleeps. Well, about 1:30am I hear my dog barking outside like she's chasing something. I thought maybe it was the neighbor's dogs running free again (they almost killed my cat last time they got loose). I get out of bed and put on my jeans and am headed for the Mini-14 when I hear the doorbell ring. I open the door and there is some cracked-out lookin white guy standing there. I say, "Uhh...can I help you?"

    "Does [my mom] live here?"

    "Who's asking?"

    "[insert name]"

    "What do you want?"

    "Well my truck's out of gas, I was wondering if you could spare a little gas if you have some."

    "Uhh..yea, in the garage."

    So as I walk downstairs, I notice his truck is in the driveway. Keep in mind that it's 1:30am and I live WAY off the beaten path. You have to either be really lost or know where you're going to get here. Something tells me this guy is up to no good. Anyway, I gave him about a half gallon of pre-mix lawnmower fuel, and he thanks me and leaves.

    The next day I tell mom and dad about what happened, and apparently, this guy goes around and begs money off of people. He must have used the "out of gas" as a cover story since I answered the door and not one of my parents.

    So that was creepy as fukk and now we keep the guns loaded and the doors locked.

    How well does lawnmower pre-mix run in a gas only engine?

    I assume this is the stuff with machine oil mixed?

    your nicer than i am, i dont give money to anyone i dont know.

    i had a guy hit me up outside a conveniance store once, "can i get a dollar"


    i said "can you get a job?" :haha: :haha:

    he started BS'ing about being a Army vet, so i directed his attention to the tag on th front of the Mustang that is a CIB plate. i told him that if he could tell me what my tag was id give him 5 bucks.

    he walked away.

    braver than I am...

    Your lucky that creep didn't use the gas to torch your house or car!..we had a weird similar report in our police log --the other night at 2:20 AM,a lady on a street a mile away heard her doorbell ring!--like a fool she answered it--I'd never open MY door after 9 pm unless I was dam sure who it was!..I'd call the cops,and let them know this guy is out that late looking for money,if I were you.... :eek1:

    Anyway,a large man with a short military looking haircut tells her he is with the state police,(undercover--no uniform!)-and wanted to know if she heard a loud bang about 6:30 AM the day before!--supposedly he was "conducting an investigation"--she said she heard nothing,and the man says "OK",we will be back if anything develops..--and he leaves--on foot!....the lady called local police the next morning,who then called the state police--who said they know nothing of any "investigations" or "loud noises" in the area--if they did,they would have called the Raynham cops..!-- her house is about 600ft off the road...not that close to any others..I think she was very lucky not to have been raped or robbed!... :eek1:

    I would have called them BEFORE opening my door!..I don't have a gun,but you can bet anyone knocking on doors at 2 in the morning most likely WILL!.. :yikes:

    I've heard voices out in the woods behind our house in that general direction..I suspect since the city of Taunton evicted a lot of its homeless from a shantytown they had near the center of town,many probably migrated here into the woods..many of them are crack addicts and alcoholics..better not catch any in MY yard.. :angry1: --been a rash of daylight housebreaks around town too lately.. :mad: ..the police chief lives 3 houses awayfrom me,and his son is the Leiutennant,he lives right behind his dad--so I feel a BIT more secure,but they can't be everywhere 24/7... :crazy:

    yeah... umm.. the worst thing i get here livingin the barracks of good ole Camp pendleton.. is... magazine sales women.. who want a lil more than magazines... few years back when i was stationed here the first time they magazine sales girls were all HIV posative and trying to spread the "word" so to speak... kinda fkd up if you ask me... soooo needless to say, i let them in my room, and page the MP's who live less than a block away from me. they gladly escort them off base. i have a few MP friends, i just text one of them, they call the front desk and the guys just walk in to my room, arrest the people, then thank me and leave.

    Hahaha, BINGO! I'd never answer the door that late if I don't know who the person is...ESPECIALLY if I'm off the beaten path. Or, if I do, I have a gun and I shout through the door.

    Thanks for the wake up call. Even though Murphy hasn't gotten that bad yet, you've just convinced me to ask my dad if he can let me have that .357 of his to keep in my bed drawer and ready to rock anytime somebody shows up at the door after 11.

    When people are at my front door and I don't know them I go out the back door and around from the side. That way you've cleared at least one side and they are almost always startled when you come up around behind them because for whatever stupid reason people just stand staring at your door. I'm always armed of course, usually a pistol if I do this.

    Did you give him the mixed gas out of spite or just cause that was all you had? My girlfriend accidentaly put mixed gas in their riding lawnmower once and it smoked like an overfueled diesel until the tank was run dry. They didnt have any skeeters for about a week though :haha:

    I cant say I'd open the door that late at night. I might grab a gun and run around back to sneak up on the perp from behind...

    You could always open the door with nothing but a thong on and say, "hey there handsome". :rotfl:

    I bet there'd be flames coming off his soles all the way down the block.
