Being a Nosy Neighbor

Our house sits on a cul-de-sac. The street is gen­er­al­ly very qui­et, espe­cial­ly dur­ing the day when most neigh­bors are off at work.

All day, though, a Sears van has been cir­cling through the cul-de-sac every 30–45 min­utes. Very slow­ly, as if look­ing for some­thing. I mean, all day. Real­ly. There’s a “repair” phone num­ber on the side of the van, but oth­er­wise, I don’t know which of Sears’ many divi­sions the van is from.

It makes me curi­ous, though—what on earth is it here about? Did they have an appoint­ment ear­ly this morn­ing but could­n’t find the actu­al house? Is some­one sit­ting and wait­ing and wondering?

Hmm—they just came back and pulled into the dri­ve of the house across the street. All the way into the garage (they always leave the doors open). Should I call the police? Nobody’s home over there.
