I'm Ready to Move
I came home from church yesterday to find this on the street in front of my house.
I wanted to sneak a picture as he was riding around, but once he saw that I had my camera, he just rode up to me and wouldn't leave me alone. Since I wasn't mean enough to him and his sister, I became the center of everything they want to do while they were outside of their house.
Him and his older sister love me for some reason and I can't seem to get rid of them. These kids picnic in front of my house in the summertime. They knock on my door twenty times a day and occasionally even walk into my house without an invitation.
Despite everything I just said, they are not bad kids. They just seem to want all my attention at all times. However, tonight was different. When I got home from work, they ran up to my car and asked if I had anything 'interesting' to eat in my house.
"Don't you have anything interesting at your own house?"
"Not my problem. Go away!"
I hurried into my house to fix dinner before I ran out to pick up my daughter, but as soon as I shut the door they started knocking.
I chose to ignore them and hoped they would go away, but they opened my door and came in. After several minutes of me trying to get them to understand that it's rude to walk into people's homes and even ruder...(ruder? more rude? One of those) to not leave when told to, I finally got them out the door. If I knew their parents better I would have physically removed them.
Once I got them outside, I locked the door. They immediately started knocking and trying to turn the doorknob. I tried to ignore them, but they never stopped beating on the door and yelling for me to come out. These kids have been awful at taking hints in the past, but tonight was the worst I'd ever seen them. They didn't let up until I left thirty minutes later. I don't know what happened after that.
Tomorrow, I am going to the tractor supply store to purchase an electric fence. Have I ever said that I hate kids?
