Collecting Accusations

| Friendly | May 19, 2017

(I’m at my parent’s place picking up some board games whilst they’re not home, which they’re aware of. I’m searching the game box when a salesperson knocks at the door and they begin to ask me questions about the house.)

Me: “I don’t actually live here. I’m just collecting some things.”

Salesperson: *suspiciously* “You’re… collecting some things?”

Me: “Oh, that sounds like I’m stealing, doesn’t it? No, this is my parents’ place! They know I’m here.”

(She laughed, so I guess that meant she believed me. Looking back, I can see that my choice of words was a bit suspect!)
