Just as I am finishing my shower in the
morning there is a knock at the door. I say ‘hello’, and someone
replies and then unlocks the door and tries to come into the room.
Strange. I get dressed and unbolt the door. A guy says the TV is
not working and that he wants to fix it. I say ‘don’t worry’ as I am
not using the TV. He says that the other TV’s are not working and
tries to walk in. My girlfriend is still in bed, and I have to stop him with
my hand and push him back out. Very strange.
