Looking Away Doesn't Make It Go Away

It's garbage day and with that brings gentlemen who like to look for "treasures" in the neighborhood bins.  As I was returning home from the school drop-off I noticed that someone was going through the bin in front of our house.  I didn't feel comfortable passing him and pulling into our drive-way so I rolled right on by.  I just wanted to give him time.

After circling the block I headed back only to find that he was still busy.  Hmmm.  I still wasn't comfortable passing him so I circled once again. 


Why didn't I just pull into the driveway say, or nod, a 'hello', and go in my house?   I felt so foolish, I felt ridiculous.  When I came back around the 3rd time he was gone. 

Next time I'll see him.  Next time I'll say 'hello'.  My avoidance was embarrassing.

  1. You need to make sure he wasn't looking for credit card info and other fun stuff!

  2. I was thinking the same thing about credit card fraud. Gotta watch that.
