A white Chevy pickup with a tow bar in back and light bar across the top pulled up in the middle of the street next to our car, last night. Driver got out, and started eyeballing it. Passenger got out and pointed to the bottom corner of the windshield. I brought Odysseus's attention to it, and he stepped out onto our porch, and asked what the hell was going on. Driver of the pickup--a man in his late 40's--started up our front walk, holding out some papers. Odysseus put his hand on his gun and backed up, and told the guy to stay back. And then to get the hell off the property and away from the car.
Then, when the truck pulled on down the street, Odysseus called the local PD to report suspicious behavior.
...and the truck pulls back up from the other direction. Numbnuts went around the block. Goes to our neighbor's house and talks to him for a bit, then heads back towards our car.
At which point, the local cops pull up behind him, and he freaks out, then bugs out.
Now, I'm not sure whether that was a legitimate repo guy looking for a car, and mistook ours for the one he was looking for (easy to do at TEN FUCKING THIRTY AT FUCKING NIGHT), or was a thief looking for a payday. It doesn't matter, because we've owned that car since '04, and have had it paid off since '07. Anybody towing it is stealing it, whether it's a mistake on their part, or not.
Either way, I spent a bad night with a fuckton of nightmares, and Odysseus had a short night after being unable to get to sleep until nearly two this morning.
And if I see that truck, and that individual messing around our vehicles again, he's not going to be real happy. Nobody is, looking down the barrel of a handgun.
