« on: December 21, 2020, 06:15:31 PM »
So I'm home alone down in the basement today when I unexpectedly hear footsteps upstairs.  Neither my daughter nor wife are expected home at this hour, so I text my daughter first to ask if she is home early.  She replies that she is not.  I then text my wife, asking if that is her I hear upstairs or a burglar.  She replies, "There's a burglar."  So, pistol at the low ready, I start to clear the upstairs and encounter my wife in the kitchen.  I chastise her for misleading me, and she actually retorted, "Why would a burglar text you from my phone?"

 >:(  Aw Cummon   >:(

Lets think about this for a second you guys.  OD's sweetheart sends him upstairs armed and ready to shoot an intruder.  In the wrong circumstances, that could result in a tragedy.  IT.   IS.   NOT.   FUNNY.

I'm with the guy who builds wooden boxes shaped like people!

This is not funny at all and could have turned into tragedy. When I was an instructor at my department's academy I taught defensive tactics and street survival. Building clearing is one of the more intense parts of that, and if not done right it can get you killed. It also provides one of the best opportunities to make a mistake, like in OD's situation.

The absolute best way to clear any building is to send in the K-9. They don't miss anyone!

Talk about cockeyed logic.

And finding the humor . . .

This one is ... interesting...
No offense to OD or Mrs OD ...

as it shows how the virtual world is changing us.

In the Real World,  I must agree with Coffin, Kent and Dave T
......
When I come in the front door without calling out, Mrs. Marvel has heard my keys in the two sets of
knob and deadbolts ("bear door" and steel exterior door) and calls out 
"Hello Mr Burgaler with Keys!"
and I reply
Hello Mrs Lady!

It is our standard "Call and Response" that provides clear ID

If there is no Call & Response and ID, we both know what to expect and are prepared.
BTW we both have answered the door rather like Doc Holiday....

I REALLY need to get a video doorbell....

So, I am willing to bet a nickel that Mrs OD just reacted in a way she thought was funny just like that.
Like hollaring out to the basement form the living room,
           "I am a Burgeler Stupid, Wadda Ya think?"
But...... in the Real World, we hear each other and have clear ID

texting.... no clue. who is it really? perp grabs wife and pulled out her phone,
texting you back? then a house invasion... It HAS happened. A LOT

Mrs OD clearly thought it was a haha but probably did not think it through.
(aaaand ... being a woman if you try to 'splain this to her she will get SO PISSED OFF... so better not even try )

Think about this for a minute.

We are using and shooting deadly weapons, and advocating their daily use and carry.
anyone who thinks it is funny to send their spouse into a false "perp in the house"  "house clearing" scenario
needs their head examined.

At best, poor judgement, Or a dumb mistake as related above.... Funny thing, texting does that....

Also, remember It is human nature for That kind of lack of seriousness to lead eventually
to "too casual attitude" followed by mistakes and One thing leads to the next, and soon ...
a horrifying incident.

In this real world, bith Mrs Marvel and Myself have "heard something" ,
have armed ourselfs, and gone to check it out.
But we quietly call to each other   ( we don't text each other) via voice and The Secret Code for ID (per above)
I am quite certain most of us here have done similar ( or is it only me....? )

In this crazy modern world We need to be careful!
As we get more "virtual" wierd scenarios are going to become very common....

In the "abstract", as in a "not for real funny story", OD's story  has some merits.
much like the old joke about the "transformers deceptacons" **


My girlfriend asked why I carry a gun around the house?
I looked her dead in the eye and said, ‟the dammed decepticons”.
She laguhed, I laughed, the toaster laughed,
I shot the toaster,
it was a good time.


lol

** in case you live under a rock the The Transformers is an American animated robot
superhero television series which originally aired from Sept 1984 to Nov 1987
in syndication. "Giant alien Autobots and evil Decepticons, robots capable of transforming
into vehicles and other objects, wage war with Earth's fate at stake."

pre-teen and 'tween boys went nuts over the 'toons and toys.

So.

pooot.

Ah My Dear Kent, just wait it gets worse!

when the show was going TV cartoons were still for "kids".
then came the 90's and Japanese Anime started showing up.

Think animated show about everything from "kiddies toons" to "serious stories", SF, historic drama, historic demon stories,
spy shows, cowboy shows, literally everything, from Japan. Amongst of our favorites is "Cowboy Bebop" and "Ghost in the Shell".
these things had serious cutting edge plots , character development, even "animation cinemetography" ....

So in the 2000's they start taking off BIG TIME and US companies formed just to import and provide excellent dubbing, true to script!
Not your Chop Sooey Kung Fu flick dubs!

now comes the 2010's and with quality cheap CGI they start makinjg live action/animation mixes and Bob's yer Uncle
there is the whole Transformers Franchise in Big Screen Movies along with most of the DC and Marvel Comic Book stuff.
Amazingly, some of the stuff is actually not bad, like the Thor movie, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

So now the little kids and tweeners that grew up on the Transformers have big screen movies and it started a whole new avalanche....

yes, my secret is out, I am an SF nerd and japanese animation otaku...

Logic?
We don't need no steenkeeng logic! Jist say "NO!" when your wifey of 50 years asks if you want to help finish up wrapping the over 40 small bags she has strewn all over the house, the ones that you have quietly asked her to move into one area/room so she/we can get them wrapped and loaded on Thursday night for Friday morns run to the grandkids house.
OK..."NO!" didn't work, she then said "I'll TELL you what to do with them and then I'm off to work (PT job)." I replied "...in 15 minutes we could be done, why TELL me then leave when you'll just redo them anyway?" Sigh, that didn't fall on welcoming ears. So, back she comes saying "I have a 1/2 hour, wanna finish up?" Sheesh!
Some days you just oughta stay in bed.
God I love her!
Best regards and good wrapping!
