I Feel Like I Am Being Watched

By
Home Inspector with JRV Home Inspection Services, LLC HOI 394

Have you ever had the feeling you were being watched? I don't mean a furtive glance from a stranger in the mall, but followed, spied on with intent. I've had that feeling for sometime. I would glance out the window or steal a quick look behind me, but never see anything out of place.

On a recent business trip to Seattle to assist fellow home inspector and AR member Charles Buell with a multi building inspection, I got an inkling into why I have been sensing secretive eyes on my back.

One morning we met for breakfast with another AR member Steven Smith and his certifried assistance Nutsy S. Wallenda. Anyone who follows Steven's blog knows about Nutsy and the banter between him and Charlie. I have more than occasionally joined in the battle of wits between Nutsy and Charlie. Of course a battle of wits with Nutsy is like fighting a one armed blind man on roller skates.

That morning I noticed ol' Nutsy was acting stranger than usual. He asked me a lot of questions not necessarily related to home inspection and kept looking nervously around the restaurant. I paid his behavior no mind at the time. That is until I caught this flunky of his clearly spying on me.  

This guy is a pathetic excuse for a spy. Sure he's physically adept, but blending stealthy into the background...forget it! I had no trouble snapping these pictures of my new shadow. Check out the look on his face in the second photo. Talk about an oops I just got caught look. Priceless.

As for Nutsy he and I will be having a little talk soon. Probably at a remote location where no one can hear him scream, I mean us loudly discussing his under handed deed.

James-the way to throw off Nutsy's army of spies is easy.  Just carry a small pack of crackers and jar of peanut butter with you.  One wiff of the Jiff and they completely forget what they were doing.  You can make a clean getaway!

I think I saw the same spy checking me out when I was doing some work in the garden last weekend!  Maybe it is a conspiracy?

Too funny.  In the 2nd picture he looks like he just got caught with his paw in the peanut jar.

Jim, it's this incredible ability you have to sense something isn't quite right that makes you the inspector you are

James,

Nutsy drew my attention to this. I can only say that if you truly understood the breadth of his knowledge and his importance to the national security effort, you would not be trifling with him.

James,

I have it, on the highest sources, that the national security agency is very interested in your loose lips

Cindy, You obviously have spy diversion trying. Thanks for the tip.

Michael, This may run deeper than I thought.

Anita, Caught in the act of tailing me is more accurate.

Ed, That may be the reason why I spotted this little scoundrel.

Fernando, Yes, a slightly nobler career in my opinion.

Nutsy, It is you sir whose activities need to be scrutinized. If only the boss wasn't so blinded by loyalty.

Steven, Some how I feel less secure knowing Nutsy is working for my security.

Charlie, They clearly do not know their position on the food chain.

Carra, Yes apparently I am a person of interest to this little scamp.

Croakster, Your assistance would be most welcome.

Michael, I did not know you could over dose on the moose and squirrel.

Steven, Is this security agent that is interested in my lips attractive?

Mr James,

I believe that, if you were to simply delete all of this, I might not have to discuss your loose lips with Mr Robert Gates. Failure to head my advise will result in my having to pray four your soles.

James,

There are numerous members of Nutsy's family who work with the CIA as well.
