Stranger in my house


Suddenly i heard the kitchen's door opening sound while i was busying to prepare my lunch in the kitchen, i was initially thought that my little Jo wanted to disturb me again. BUT, i heard a lady's voice from my back before i managed to turn my head backwards . I was so shocked and my heart pounding wildly when i saw a lady standing behind me.

She is from gas company and came to record the gas meter. I know i can't blame her why she came into my house without my knowledge as Jo was the one who opened the door for her. But how could i manage to stand calm when suddenly i saw there is a stranger in my house? What if she is not from gas company? What if there is a guy try to disguise a staff but actually is a thief?

After a while, I asked Jo,
"为什么你开门给陌生人进来?"(why you simply open the door for stranger?)
"姐姐不是坏人." (Jie-jie not a bad girl)
"你又知姐姐不是坏人?" (How do you know jie-jie not a bad girl?)
"姐姐是来打蟑螂." (Jie-jie come here to kill the cockroach)

Oh, few weeks before there was a lady came to my house and did some spraying for killing the cockroaches, that time i told Jo "this jie-jie helps us to kill the cockroach, so next time no cockroach in our house". That's why he opened the door for the lady as he thought this time also the same.

We don't have the external gate, and Jo is very smart to open the front door even the door has 3 locks on it. It's very dangerous without the gate, there was once Jo opened the door and ran out to the lift without my knowledge. How to keep eyes on him when i need to cook in kitchen, i can't hear anything when the exhaust-fan is on, unless the cement walls all turn into glass. :)

We actually talked to our landlord before, but he insisted not to install the grill. OK, this time sure no excuses.

Oh my ~~ scary, yes you must be careful. Toddlers are smart these days, and innocent at the same time.

Aiyo, that's so dangerous. Quick quick as the landlord to install grill.

Dragonmummy said...

what about installing a latch that's high enough for JO not to reach?

huisia said...

MilkMaid - Very scary hor, i'm also afraid as they are too smart.

immomsdaughter - Very troublesome, have to wait for my hubby, then wait for him to tell his company, then only turn to the landlord.

Dragonmummy - I wish can have the grill, if really not possible then only think about the latch.

Aiyo, so scary! Very dangerous also.

Damien can reach the keys at my mum's place already (she puts them on the wall hook)..so now mum has to install another hook higher up..

Jan said...

kelly said...

Ya, sounds so scary...must do something to make sure Jo can't open the door..

By the way, he talks a lot now...so happy for you...Qianyi doesn't talk much.:(

michelle said...

Fortunately nothing happens. I will freak out if a stranger standing behind me. Maybe install a grill door or something to prevent Josh from opening the door.

Or teach him to at least call you first before opening the door.

Zara's Mama said...

This is worrying huh?? Cannot put some latch higher which he can't reach?

shoppingmum said...

Yikes, it's really scary. But why your landlord doesn't want a grill? It's normal to have one here.

huisia said...

Thanks for all concern!
We can't install the latch ourself as the door is aluminium made, somemore the contract stated we can't do ANY on the wall, doors and windows, so i think it's good to let the landlord decides whether he wants to install the grill or not. If not, maybe we will move to another house.

Scary and dangerous, better fast fast talk with the landlord.

poyin said...
