I have been appraising houses for 12 years now. In that time I have lost count for how many times people have called the police on me. And there was that one time that I tripped a house alarm . . . twice . . . Lansing police had excellent response times that day.
Anyway, it’s been a kind of funny thing. I mean, sometimes when people call the police on me, it is a little weird. But I know that I’m not doing anything wrong; so it has become a bit, with humorous how many times it has happened.
After the whole CPS thing several weeks ago, I really didn’t think how this would affect my sense of humor with houses. Today I had the police called on me . . . again. Because, ya know, 4:30ish on a Friday, a woman in dress clothes with a clip board, entering a home utilizing a lockbox with a code that she knows, seems awfully suspicious! Right? No? I didn’t think so either. Luckily, the officer didn’t think so either. He did go over and chat with the neighbors. Hopefully to tell them that it’s 5 o’clock somewhere and they should chill out!
Tonight I am thankful that the police don’t think I’m a bad guy! A whole bunch of other people seem to think that I am!! Fortunately the people with the guns and handcuffs believe otherwise.
Here is my mug shot . . . er, how I looked today that seemed so suspicious.
