Oddly enough I was very nice to him but explained in great length why his unexpected visit caused me distress and he started tearing up. I imagine that he'd already had a bad day.

I have locked gates but the meter reader always asks if the dogs are in. Havoc is very intimidating and it looks as though he could jump the fence. He can't though. He's not a jumper.
Another Havoc

Glad the deployment is over and hubby came home safe. I was there in 2006 and 2009.

We also have a electronic meter that is read from the street. We have a dog run that is inside our fenced yard. The dogs are in the run while we are at work. Both the gate to the yard and run have padlocks on them. When we moved here and asked the utility company what day they read meters so we could make sure the gate was unlocked, they offered the electronic meter. We took it and it is nice to have..

Before I moved to Oregon, I had a guy come to my door to ask if he could have my old appliances that were sitting in the driveway. When I answered my door, I asked him 'can you read?' He gave me a dumb look and kinda stuttered looking for an answer. Then he said 'yeah' ...I said, 'I have to question that.' He asked why. I informed him that there was a sign in the gate that clearly states "Dog On Premises" and that he was extremely fortunate that my dogs were in the house with me when he came through the gate. He asked why again. I grabbed their collars, opened the door, and asked him if he really wanted to find out. He spun around and out the gate faster then I could blink, with out another word. He never came back.
