So last week there was a car parked outside our house.  As we live in a court this was a bit unusual, but the fact that there was a bloke sitting in it even more so.   I thought maybe it was a friend waiting for someone to come home maybe?  

Anyhow this morning DH went to work and he was back.  DH said he drove past and the bloke ducked his head a bit.

So enough of this I thought.  DS and I were heading out so I buckled DS in the car and went and knocked on his window.

Turns out he is a private investigator, he gave me a card and I rang the local police station to confirm (they checked his rego number)

So now of course I can't stop trying to guess what neighbor is up to what nefarious deed?

Any suggestions EB?


EFS.

Probably just someone on compo - they are checking to see if they go out to work, or carry the bins out or whatever.

However he must not be a good PI if you and DH are already onto him  ddoh.gif

Yep Compo.

I used to work in that system and was chatting to a PI one day. He told me this story about how he was staking out this house in the bush one day when he got a tap on the shoulder and these cops said "thanks mate, we'll take it from here". The compo claimant was one Ivan Milat. ohmy.gif

You may not realise it, but the couple in no. xyz - you know them, he's older than her by, oooh, 30 years, and she has the pneumatically enhanced body and bleached blond hair? - are actually quite well off.

He made a fortune through his own business and then made a squillion when he sold it a few years back so he could enjoy his retirement. But he came from good blue collar stock and didn't want to look like a C.U.B, so lives a quite life (except for those fantastic holidays).

Problem is, Trophy Wife thought his arms would be a bit longer - or his pockets a bit shorter - than they are and has started fooling around with a sugar daddy.

But her husband isn't quite as senile as she thinks and is determined to catch her out, thus ensuring that water-tight pre-nup they signed doesn't spring any leaks....

Oooooooh!

Fun!

Gosh my imagination it too lavish to make suggestions.  In reality it is probably something dull and boring like a workers comp. claim.  

Although maybe, maybe... you have Lord Lucan in your street?!

Perhaps he is checking to see which neighbour is filling their neighbours' bins with rubbish on bin night.

Or he is looking for the missing pad.

I had a call from a PI at work - he had been warned off the job by ASIO.  It turned out they were watching the house of the suspected terrorists later arrested in Melbourne.

Well whoever is being investigated deserves to be sprung if they are stoopid enough not to notice him. Not very 'private'!

OT, but related, always gets me why a spouse would hire a PI to prove their partner was cheating. If you are suspicious enough to do that behind their back, the relationship is pretty much shot isn't it? And we have had no fault divorce here for nearly 40 years.

Could be a clever move - now you think he is watching the neighbours!  tongue.gif

Maybe....just maybe, he is investigating the misuse of sultanas, Tiny Teddies, and minties by dodgy parents and teachers?

Just a thought.

I have a story!

Many years ago a friend of mine was growing some cannabis sativa plants up in the bush.  5 plants. For personal use.

He would drive out every second day and water and tend them.

One day he noticed a car that he had seen before parked where he was parked, being a paranoid stoner he decided to take a circuitous route back to his car, hiding commando style in the bush.

He walked about 50m beyond his spindly little crop, crested a hill and 'low and behold' gleaming and glistening in the sun was about an acre of fully grown marijuana plants!

Hyperventilating and finding it very difficult to keep his underpants clean he stayed hidden in the bush near his car until the other car had disappeared... then high tailed it home again - never, ever to return!

I think you need to set up a stake out and keep an eye on him OP to find out what he is really up to. Some big black sunglasses and a hat and scarf would make appropriate clothing for such a task.

Yep run out there and say EB wants to know what you're investigating?

I'm currently typing an investigator's interview - ever so boring about a reasonably minor car accident.  Most of what they do ain't glamorous.
