  •  I don't know why it is so hard for some people to (28+ / 0-)

    comprehend that mistakes are made by people going to houses.  
    Late last summer my friend and I headed down to my niece's summer place for the night as she and her husband worked during the week and it was empty.  Now I had only been there once, several years ago.  I just moved back to this area so the geography was not familiar.  We drove to the place and because we had dinner with friends it was after dark when we arrived.

    In the dark I read the number wrong, and to be honest the two houses across from each other were similar.  Both were dark as it was after 10 pm.  We tried the key, went around to the back.  When I could not get it to work, I called my niece on my cell and that's when I realized we were at the wrong house.  Luckily, no one was there (it was in September and midweek so it was an unoccupied summer home).  

    Now I think about how easily we, two 65+ year old women, could have been killed by a gun crazy.  Honestly, I never thought much about that stuff until lately.    It's sad that so many no longer can even give  fellow human beings the benefit of the doubt because these hateful fear mongers own the radio waves.
