Guy going around asking for money

I really wish we still had the Baytown Sun forum for things like this. I had a guy come to my door saying he needed about $40 to pay his electric bill, and offered to pull weeds for any money I could spare. I didn't have any money, so he was on his way.

Well, about 30 minutes later, I was in my room, and I SWEAR it sounded like someone was trying to open my front door. My dog started going nuts. My first thought was my husband was home, but then it clicked that I had just talked to him on the phone and he was an hour away. Of course my door was locked, but I grabbed a weapon and cautiously went to the living room. I checked the peep hole, and eventually opened the front door thinking maybe someone left a flyer on the front door, or my UPS package had arrived. There was nothing.

Obviously I heard something and so did the dog, but I also felt like I was overreacting. Now, I see about that family that got taken advantage of by helping someone out.

I would love to have an active forum to discuss what is going on around our city! Maybe I'll get lucky and someone will read this...

That is a scary sittuation. It's always good to keep a weapon handy in those sittuations. Just keep the doors and windows locked always. He may have just asked for the 40 bucks just to see if you were home alone. It may be a good idea to alert authorities next time. You never can be too safe.
