How would you feel about a "stranger" washing your windows?

Suppose that one day, you came home and you found someone inside your house, washing your windows. When you inquired, "WTF?", possibly with a weapon drawn, the person explains that he/she was walking down the street and noticed the windows in your house were really dirty - and he/she decided that rather than leaving a note to let you know, that he/she would be kind, do you a favour, and clean them for you (free of charge, of course). He/she had already cleaned the outsides of the windows, and since you accidentally left the door open, he/she decided to clean the insides too - and was half way done when you came home. How would you feel about that?

It's no different in my opinion. One question is about the same as the other (:

I would probably suspect them of having an affair with my wife and of being too stupid to run/ make up a good excuse for being in said house!

This is all hypothetical, like you said, since i don't have either a wife nor a house.

Here's a good one for you guys.

The lock on our deck door used to be somewhat funny. You could unlock it with any key, or even wiggle the handle and turn at the same time and it would open. One day I was in the garage working on my jeep when I hear someone above me in the house. I figured it was the cats playing so I went back to the jeep. 5 minutes later someone opens the garage door cause they heard the music. It was a complete stranger. She was given instructions by the maid company to goto the first blue house on my street. She "unlocked" the deck door and came in. Started straightening up and thought nothing of it.

It was really creepy to see someone completely unexpected enter the garage from the house. Good thing she was kinda old and frail or else she wouldn't have to explain anything, I'd be explaining why there's a corpse on the floor.

You must really love your Jeep if you equate your house to it.

I don't love my Jeep (or my house) at all. But they do equate, in that they are both personal property that others should not be ****ing with.

If you like, you can substitute Jeep windows for house windows, it's the same difference:

Suppose that one day, you came back to your Jeep and you found someone sitting inside it, washing your windows. When you inquired, "WTF?", possibly with a weapon drawn, the person explains that he/she was walking down the street and noticed the windows in your Jeep were really dirty - and he/she decided that rather than leaving a note to let you know, that he/she would be kind, do you a favour, and clean them for you (free of charge, of course). He/she had already cleaned the outsides of the windows, and since you left the door unlocked, he/she decided to clean the insides too - and was half way done when you came back to your Jeep. How would you feel about that?

I would never kill someone for stealing my Jeep but I would kill someone for entering my house. If my Jeep was sitting like it usually does in the summer with the top and doors off and someone was cleaning my windows I would be suspicious of other motives. I doubt anyone would get very far in my Jeep. It needs the magic touch to get and keep running so I wouldn't worry about them stealing it. My Jeep is mothballed in the winter so no one is going to be cleaning the windows. But I know what you're saying. I just don't get as bent out of shape over things I own.

Talk about loving your house more than your Jeep! I don't think I would kill someone for entering either one, FYI.

Then why would you have a weapon drawn?

No I get what you're saying.

I didn't say that I would.

a). It was just part of the scenario. "When you inquired, "WTF?", possibly with a weapon drawn". I didn't say anything about ME.

b). I don't generally walk around with a gun.

c). If I did have a gun, and I did have it drawn, it would be about concern for my safety, rather than simply shooting them for entering (or stealing) my Jeep. You never know what some crackhead you catch in your Jeep is going to do. Best to be prepared (:

I usually carry my gun with me. If I had it I'd probably have one hand on it, assuming I saw my door wide open when I knew it was not. And depending on the person and their demeanor I'd call the cops. I don't care if you had a steak dinner sitting on my kitchen table and a cold beer poured, its still breaking and entering.
