Don't Even Try It!

Don't Even Try It ...

They wondered why they never got company anymore.  Ever since they got that new security system installed ... everyone quit coming to see them.  I wondered why, too?

I'm curious by nature when something seems to be strange ... I want to know what's going on.

I asked them what time did company usually come ... they said around 7:00, 8:00 pm in the evenings.  I decided I would pop up around 7:30 pm.

I drove into the driveway, thought for a moment I saw something move near the porch.  I got out, began walking up the sidewalk toward the porch, when ...

When a huge 7 foot tall man stepped out in front of me ... I wondered who he was.  I saw an emblem on his shirt.  Alas, he was too tall for me to read it.

I began to go around him ... he put his hand on me, forcing me to stop.  I looked up at him, asked him who he was to stop me from seeing my friends.  He didn't answer.  He let go of my shoulder.

I began to walk forward once again ... his voice boomed out at me, "don't even try it"!  I stopped in shock, looked at him closely.  Is this why everyone stopped coming to visit my friends?

I took several more steps ... I woke up on the ground.  The big man was gone ... I was ready to be gone too!

I waited until the next day to tell my friends that I knew why no one came to see them anymore.  Not only was their new security system protecting them from robbers breaking in ... they were protecting them from their friends dropping by also!

Needless to say, they called the security company to come out to uninstall the system.

That evening I drove up to test it out.  My heart was in my throat as I got out of my car.  I began to walk hesitantly toward their home ... I was afraid the big man would loom up in front of me again.  He might kill me this time!

I made it to the door, pressed the bell.  My friends opened the door, greeted me with a smile.  All had returned to normal.  :)

Note by this Author:

This is fictional ... I watched the commercial on tv where the big man told the robbers 'don't even try it'.  He was representing the security system being advertised.  My thought was suppose ... it went on the blink ... stopped both friend, and foe from coming to their house?

  1. I saw that commercial on TV too. I believe he does make a good security system! Love, Ms. Nancy
