I am an extremely curious person. I consider being curious a good trait in a person. Curious people want to learn. Curious people want to know why. Being a curious person and trying at the same time to not interfere with people’s lives can be very difficult. It can involve binoculars, hidden cameras, recording devices and much more.

Seriously, I wish I had some of those tools but everyone knows me too well to buy any of them for me. I have to make due with what I’ve got.
Yes, I have hidden in the bushes to spy on neighbors. Yes, I have listened to mobile phone conversations on police scanners before some stupid law passed preventing me from doing it anymore. Yes, I have followed police cars with their sirens on. Yes, I still have a police scanner. Yes, I have steamed open someone’s mail and resealed it so they would never know.
The way I figure it if neighbors are going to do strange things in front of their windows then they obviously want to be seen. If people are going to have cell phone conversations knowing anyone could be listening then they want to be heard. If police don’t want to be followed then they should shut their damn sirens off. OK, so steaming open the letter wasn’t too cool. I’ll give you that one.
Just remember, in this day and age, if I’m not watching you someone else is.
