Make no sound, tip-toe across the floor
If he hears, he'll knock all day
- Men at Work
Last night, there was somebody knocking on the door again. I tried to look through the peephole, but I'm too short (5'1"), so my daughter (5'7") took a turn. "I can't see anything. The porch light is out. All I can see is black."
Not wanting to answer the door if we were not expecting anyone and couldn't see who it was, we ignored him. We were tip-toeing around and whispering like we forgot to buy Halloween candy, trying not to make any noise. He kept knocking for at least 20 minutes. No wonder my daughter was scared. He left another PI card. Did I mention the name on the front is not the same name he scribbled on the back? The phone number is different, as well.
Today - more loud knocking. This time he left and then came back. He also started pounding on the door across the hall and left a card on both. These are different cards, though. He left not PI cards, but Texas Process Server business cards with the name that was on the back of the PI cards. Sound shady yet?
Both times I was served before - divorce papers and when my ex sued for custody - a constable delivered the papers. What does a Texas Process Server deliver? Why doesn't he answer the phone or return calls explaining the nature of his visit? And why is he trying to involve my neighbors?
