1. I was here just last week cleaning your carpets, painting your shutters, or delivering your new frig.
  2. I used your bathroom when working in your yard and unlatched the back window.
  3. My favorite time of day for a burglary is when the kids are in school.
  4. Are those newspapers piling up in your driveway?  You know, I might leave a pizza flyer on your front door to see how long it takes you to remove it.
  5. Virgin snow in the driveway is a dead giveaway that you’re away.
  6. Oh, I can see through the front window if you’ve set your alarm?
  7. Is your kitchen sink window or screen alarmed? Do you have motion detectors?
  8. I’ll check that front door all the time. Is it locked?
  9. I may knock on your door, and if you answer, I’ll say I’m lost and need directions or ask you if you need a handyman.
  10. My favorite places to look first are the sock drawer, the medicine cabinet, and the bedside table.
