    Does anyone else get kind of freaked out when...

    ...the delivery man comes through the doorway when delivering food?

    I mean, I open the door and I take the food, and then the guy steps into the doorway and into my apartment. Kind of strange.

    Maybe they think I'm going to just slam the door and not pay? Maybe I value my personal space a bit too much? I dunno, but it's really weird to me.

    It is wierd.

    I have heard of some food delivery places taking your name, address, phone number, and date of birth, then turning over the records to law enforcement. Supposedly, it is to help capture fugitives. What I don't understand is people freely giving out this kind of personal info.

    I use a unique method to keep delivery people out of my house. First off, I hate people coming into my house unless they are really good friends or family. Second, I have a dog that bites. Not only does she bite, but she jumps all over people. She hates people, too. Third, I am on a medication that has a side effect that can be useful. Since I have to eat more vegetables and fruit now, it makes the side effect worse. All I have to do is listen for General Colon Bowel to start barking orders to his troops, and before you know it a stealth bomb has been launched in their presence. If nothing else works, this is guaranteed to clear a room in 3 seconds flat. The bad part is I have had to replace the paint that keeps peeling off the walls....

    I step outside when the person comes Nick. I feel the same way you do. I don't want someone casing my house just because I ordered a double meat lovers from Dominoes.

    Why is it that when the delivery guy shows up knowing that you are paying by credit card he never seems to have a pen with him.

    I answer the door in high heels and a teddy. That tends to keep them out.

    Okay, it just amazes me how certain topics can take such a dramatic twist....I was gonna say that my German Shepherd is usually barking like crazy when the pizza guy gets there and they fear for their lives but how can I possibly beat HUb's solution? LOL

    You can't Denise....that's gotta be a sight to see. Could you imagine both HUb and BRM in a teddy?

    The only think scarier than that is the one delivery guy who is turned on by HUb's attire!
