  • Just turned away a 'disabled war veteran'
  • Going round door to door selling stuff. He showed me what was supposed to be ID, but it was just a piece of card sellotaped over and in the half second I saw it, could have been anything.

    I assume these guys are fake. For the record I have no feelings of remorse whatsoever.

    I had a window cleaner knock on the door last night, told him I already have a window cleaner. He was fine with it.

    Other stuff happened since then but I haven’t bothered sharing.

    I had one of those guys stroll into my garage in the 5 minutes I had the door up working on a motorbike.

    I could well belive he’d just been released from prison, as he had the whole junkie vibe going on.

    It also felt a lot like he was casing me. Funnily enough someone tried to force the garge door a few days later…

    Was the dog wearing the flat cap or were you wearing one when you saw it?

    Had the dog been to prison or fought in a warzone?

    Yeah, known scam, usually used for scoping for potential burglary targets, we had it a few months ago, they were selling stuff like laptop and tablet screen cleaning wipes etc.

    So, if you buy them they know there’s laptop in the house etc.

    Glad I didn’t have the garage door open when they were here.

    Police non-emergency number with as good a description as you can give them.

    Both.

    We just looked at each other in a knowing way, nodded, said nothing, and passed each other by.

    I had a bloke round last week, trying to flog me an aerial photo of our house. The cheek of it!
    I told him I have loads taken from my very own drone & he just said, ‘oh’ then went.
    I also had a man round asking if we wanted the tree out the front pruning, I told him my son was a tree surgeon & was coming to do it at some point. (been here 8 years & I’m still waiting, but then again, he’s not even a tree surgeon)

    I’ve also had ex cons ringing the bell & explaining who they are & on very close inspection of their ID I’ve always bought something from them.

    It wasn’t until Kryton57 quoted it, that I understood.

    A bloke was most put out when I wouldn’t give him some money towards buying insulin.

    Reckon I had one of these scoping me out last year. Must’ve spotted the tempting-looking rucksack in the porch, because it disappeared mysteriously a day or so later.

    It contained the smelliest old climbing shoes in the universe, surprised the whiff didn’t knock him clean out when he opened it up.

    I had one selling bog roll and condoms yesterday.

    I’m calling the police.

    Riding back from the station yesterday afternoon, two neds on bikes looking at me as I approach a T junction to stop. The one kept staring at me from the pavement on the other road as I waited to pull out. Then, as I rode past, the other one took off and tried to catch me up. Pretty poor attempt, I just upped the pace and dropped him like a stone. Not sure if he was messing about or trying to rob me tbh, could have been either.

    You SAY it was a flat cap. I have my doubts
