I was home yesterday, and the doorbell rang around 10AM. I wouldn't normally answer the door when I wasn't expecting anyone, but the duplex has sold and people are coming around for all sorts of things.
The people at the door were there because they saw that friggin' pear tree in our backyard (presumably from the other side of the road, where it is VERY visible). They were asking if we ever ate the pears. I told them that birds or wasps or other creatures always got to them before they rippened and they weren't any good. The lady then asked me if she could have one.
WTF? I was so stunned, I said sure, went and got her one and gave it to her. She bit into right there without even washing it or anything. She asked if she could come pick some. WTF? Who does this.
I was clearly stunned because her husband started exlaining that she really loved pears BECAUSE SHE IS KOREAN and they really loves pears, etc..... You know, because only Koreans like pears - my eyebrows were on the roof.
I said, "Come back after 5:00." Oh, and they did, with a big basket and a ladder and everything. H dealt with them this time. He let them through the side yard; they didn't come in the house or anything. They loaded up and headed out.
I sure hope they don't come back. Who are these people??? I would never think in a million years to ask someone if I could come to their house and do this?
