Yeh.., please come in... feel free to look around...

That is wat we said to a thief. Yup ! A thief. I dont remember the exact date... but I guess it was on the 27th of November and it was just like any other day. Lazy., warm and boring. The bell rings and I open the door and there's this tall., fair., nicely dressed guy outside who introduces himself as a plumber working on some work and looking 4 a few extra rupess. I thought that guy must be a model even with that tool in hand.

I go inside to ask my parents if they called the plumber n the guy walks in behind me n doesnt stop even when i ask him to. Then I have to size him up ( I'm 6 feet tall... thank u ) n ask him to stop there., but he's already inside. My parents are unaware of this n come out to find out wat's going on.

My dad's excited that a plumber has walked in on his own coz there r some taps that need repair n he shows him the taps and the audacity of the bastard that he walks into the two bedrooms., checks out everything n says that he mistook them for bathrooms. Does anybody have 4 bathrooms in the house !? I had my doubts on him from the moment i saw the wrench in his hand... but my dad immediately took out money 4m his pocket n pays him ! Even b4 he did the work. The thief promises to come back with the required material but obviously he never did. we later know that he's got away with money from about 6 apartments in our building.

Y I am writing this is coz of the following two reasons. One.. coz this is my blog and second I wanna warn you of such situations where u shudnt trust just anybody coz if we weren't all at home then and considering the fact that he was a strong guy with a wrench in his hand things could have got a lot worse. When things are so bad that u can't trust ppl u know a 100 %.. u gotto be extra careful with ppl u donno.

It helps if you have a gate after the door? Then at least you can open the door but the gate still separates you and the thief and keeps him outside.

It's sad, us nice folks are often preyed on! Then we become so paranoid, that we stop being nice!

@ Hell's Angel: Ye... is it... atleast this experience will make us more careful...

@ Sandeep: What's the reason...hmm.. we didnt know if he was a good guy but we didnt know if he was a bad guy either.. u just learn with experience..

@ Wmw : I live in an apartment., no chance 4 a gate here.. n u true about wat u said in the end...
