As promised, here is part two of that exciting episode of my life. For those who didn’t read the previous post, let me give you a short recap. If you imagine the beginning of a soap opera drama, it would be spoken by some man with a mysteriously deep and dramatic voice with some kind of intense music playing in the background. At least, that’s what I imagine. I’m not really into daytime soap operas. I think they’re stupid. Anyways, here we go.
Last week, Sheri found a business card in her door. It was shady. It had a strange note on the back. She wondered what she would do.
End of recap.
Wasn’t that thrilling? Back to the story.
I was sitting at my desk the next morning looking at the business card and wondering what to do. Was this a legitimate organization that actually had reasons to ask me about my neighbors? Or was it simply some terrible ploy by a mysterious third party that wanted information but drew in innocent bystanders (me) into some nefarious plot by asking them for information? Who is this person? What did they want? (Note: This is a dramatization of the actual thoughts in my head. I’m not sure all that went through my head. But it was close enough.)
So I decided to call the number. It rang. No one picked up. It went to voicemail. I hung up, thinking that it was interesting that it seemed to go to a personal cell phone rather than an actual business agency.
I went back to my work, thinking that maybe I would call again later in the day.
After lunch I found myself studying the business card again as the same questions were running through my head. I asked my friend if I should call. I described the situation. She was very unhelpful and said something along the lines of, “Auo.” Actually, I think that’s exactly what she said, though she did agree that it was indeed quite suspicious.
I called again. Still no answer.
A few minutes later, she returned my phone call.
Want to know what it was really about? Come back again! Mwahahaha.
