Not Even Subtle

Normally I wouldn't mind, but given recent events, this is disconcerting. 
"Ve are vatching you."

Excuse me, there's a knock at the door....

And today someone representing the gas company showed up and said they needed to do "some work" on my gas meter. Hmmmmm.

So what were you doing in Canada?

Darren said...

Probably being tracked!

When I crossed back and got off the ferry in Port Angeles, I was asked by the immigration guy why I was in Canada. I answered that I was on vacation. "Why Canada?" "Because I like it there." What the hell kind of question *was* that?

^ A socially awkward border guard's idea of making small talk, I think. Vogons should abstain from chit chat. It doesn't work for them.

Darren said...

It didn't sound like chit-chat. It was in a line of staccato questioning.

At least he didn't make Darren listen to his poetry, Peggy.

I think that any time you bring a vehicle that is capable of storing a lot of stuff they get paranoid. Can't have you getting away with not paying a duty on something, you know! The trailer might have pushed their buttons. We went furniture shopping in Richmond once and got that sort of treatment. I haven't been north of the border in quite a long time, since I need to renew my passport in order to go there. I can't remember when the enhanced drivers licences expire, but I figured I might as well just update the passport since they will require it eventually anyhow. Last time I was up there, they pretty much waved us through.
