Whenever I see a guard, I worry that I am about to be arrested. I cannot imagine why this should be as I am excruciatingly law abiding. So, I got a shock when I came home one evening and saw Mr. Waffle chatting to a Guard at the front door.
It was our community guard (Mr. Waffle knows all sorts of people from the residents’ committee). I said to the guard how I had performed an examination of conscience when I saw him but felt I was crime free. He said, that there was no need for me to do this, and rather it was the contrary as, in the wake of recent issues, they were going around house to house asking people were they happy with the guards. Who’d be a guard? Also, they are definitely getting younger.
