Crime has been on the rise all throughout our little town. Most of my neighbors have been complaining a lot about the problem but none of them seem to know what to do. True several have been the unfortunate victims of break-ins and one poor old man was even killed during a home invasion. They have however taken notice that the crime rate in our little community has gone down, a lot.
They don’t seem to wonder why the crime has gone down around us and I guess it’s best if no one ask too many question, you know the old ‘don’t look a gift horse in the mouth’ thing. I personally don’t really like to talk about it. When someone breaks into my home, as they have a coupe of times in the past now, they will find me here and ready to defend myself and my home.
Of course this makes for a messy situation if you do have to protect yourself. I mean it’s unlikely that once someone breaks in they will simply turn around and leave especially if the person confronting them is some old lady, so what do you do?
I just wish people would learn to read, it would save me so much time and energy if they did. After all, I did post a sign.
