Breaking (the rules of politeness) and Entering
My classes are going all right, although it's sad to be so feeble. My program is audited by the BIA on Thursday, so I hope my paperwork passes. Beyond that I don't need to do any more hoop-jumping. Last night at 9 Connie rang me up. I was talking on the phone and someone knocked on my door. I didn't answer because it was late, I had no pants on, and I was busy. SO MY NEIGHBOR JUST OPENED MY FRONT DOOR AND WALKED IN. I said, "It's not all right to walk into my house." She said she had knocked but no one answered. I said, "Just because someone knocks on the door doesn't mean I have to open it." Her heat wasn't working and she wanted to look at the garage circuit breaker panel. I mean, I had my heat turned off and my window open. Was it an emergency? No -- her heat had been off for days. She could've called me on the phone ON SUNDAY, then I'd've been happier. If it HAD been an emergency that would've been different, too, although why she can never call me on the phone I don't know.
