Yesterday, I posted here about the census lady who appeared to be looking for our neighbor all over in OUR yard. Well, she came back again this morning.
For some dumb reason, our herd refused to go out into the backyard. (Probably because she teased them yesterday.) So, I had to take them into the front yard to "take care of their business." We had just barely gotten out there, when the lady appeared to come out of NOWHERE. She came into our yard to talk to me. She had been waiting, or stalking would probably be a better word, for our poor neighbor to come home AGAIN. I explained to her that he works. She argued with me because he has two vehicles. So... he drives to work with other employees from the same business. Duh...
That's not stopping her! She's going to keep coming back until she talks to him face-to-face.
While I visited with her, I discovered that if she cannot find you at home, she goes to a neighbor to see where you work. Then...she goes to your workplace and asks to pounce on you there. She was miffed with Caprock office employees because they refuse to give her the information on their employees.
I spoke with another person who told me that she had been "stalked" by this same census worker at her workplace for three days in a row! And, come to find out, this lady had already sent her census back in as soon as she got it in the mail!!! There was absolutely NO reason for the census worker to be talking to her at all!
Anyway, I am going to be doing some research today to find out if there is some way we can get people like her stopped. This is ridiculous! If I learn something, I will let you know here. The government pays these people well. They receive a comfy hourly wage--approximately $15.00, 50 cents per every mile driven, $40.00 a day for expenses PLUS their motel rent is paid.
Given the fact that we sent our census information in months ago, I find it outrageous that these people walk through our yard looking at playground equipment, flowers, getting our dogs who are in there own fences upset, etc.
I welcome you to send in your feelings on the subject. And, if you have had your own experiences with census employees, good or bad, let me know.
