I did something dumb the other day
I heard a knock on the door, saw a van outside and opened the door. I had my dog by the collar because he always has to be first to see who's there. It was a man I'd never seen before and there was another guy sitting in the van waiting. He asked me if I was interested in a home delivery service of meat and seafood.
So there I am, alone in the house, distracted by the dog, talking to a guy I've never seen before in a relatively isolated neighborhood. Gun is upstairs locked in the gun safe.
While he was talking all I could think was, "I can't believe I just did this. If I admit this to the forum they will have a field day telling me how dumb I am", so I thought I'd beat you to it. :blink:
It was a wake up call for me and I'll never do it again. It's so easy to let your guard down and not pay attention.
