Things that a burglar won't tell you:

“Thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in your yard last week. While in there I unlatched the window to make my return a little easier.”

“The toys your kids leave out make me wonder what type of gaming system they have.”

“If it snows while you’re away, get a neighbor to create car and foot tracks toward and around the house. Untouched snowdrifts are a dead giveaway as are piled-up newspapers.”

“It’s raining, you fumble with an umbrella and forget to lock your door. I don’t take a day off in bad weather.”

“I always knock first. If you answer, I’ll ask for directions or offer to clean your gutters.

“Yes, I do look in sock and dresser drawers, nightstands and medicine cabinets.”

“I almost never check kids’ rooms.”
