Ok, I was very ill this week and had to stay home. Not telling you what it was, just not very well and very slow at typing. I am certain that I made a few mistakes when typing….
My wife took the kids out to the shops so as to avoid my continual moaning and complaining (more so that I was sick).
There was a knock at the door, and a young man in a black tailored suit was standing there. He was indian / pakistani in appearance, and had a big red folder that (I can still read upside down) was filled with the Block / Section and contact numbers for each house in my street.(probably most of Kambah in fact)
He was representing the Telephone Exchange from Sydney and wanted to know what I was currently paying for Land Line, Internet, etc. I refused to tell him.
He changed tack, and asked whether I was with TransACT or Telstra. Telstra, I replied.
I asked him for some ID, as I wasn’t giving him any info out without knowing who he was representing. He refused, saying – you don’t need to know that.
Oh, but I do, I insisted.
at that point, he murmured something unintelligible and started back down the path. He was writing notes in his big red folder.
He then doorknocked next door, but no-one was home. He was trying to see into the house next door via a side window. a bit suss.
I phoned the police, who were aware of him and his colleagues. they were keen to catch up with them.
I never let him in my house, kept him at the front door.
I just wonder, what was he really after?
