Welcome to Ogden

Today a stranger approached my front door. He said he almost hit a kid on a crosswalk and he wanted to call the police. ON THE KID'S MOM.

He said that since the mom was letting her kids trail behind her, he needed to call the cops on her. I suppose he found her parenting neglectful and wanted to report her.

I could barely hear his complaints against humanity because Maddie was barking like the ferocious beast that she is. And he seemed really perturbed by it. I wanted to tell him that when you knock on a stranger's door, then you better be prepared for that stranger's dog to BITE YOUR HEAD OFF.

I apologized to the strange, angry, man and told him I didn't think it was appropriate for him to call the police on the woman. Perhaps he could just look out for people crossing the road, regardless of their size? And maybe that mom could put her kids on leashes and in strollers? Yes? Any solution that doesn't involve me answering the door for strangers is a good solution.
