NON-TRADITIONAL WAY TO MEET YOUR NEW NEIGHBORS: CALL THE LAW ON THEM

Explanation: Yesterday, I saw a vehicle that I didn’t recognize in my new next-door neighbor’s’ yard, while they weren’t home. The two unfamiliar occupants of the vehicle proceeded to hook up to the lowboy trailer in the yard, then, drive a four-wheeler and a new riding mower up into it. With all the thefts in the area, I decided “better safe than sorry,” and called 911 for Calcasieu Parish dispatch. A patrol unit met them at the end of the 700’ driveway. About 30 mins. later, one of my missing new neighbors returned home. Sooo, I went over, knocked on the door, and waited, nervously. A dog barked inside, and the door opened to reveal a puzzled face. “I think I might have done an ‘Oops!’ “ I said, with trepidation and embarrassment. The young lady smiled and revealed that her father had come from a few towns away to retrieve his items. We then shared that we both liked the idea of neighbors looking out for each other, and exchanged phone numbers. All’s well that ends well! (I wouldn’t necessarily recommend meeting your new neighbors this way, however!) 😋
