SAFETY: Better safe than sorry

I was approached again yesterday in the Fry’s parking lot by a nice young man asking me to sign a petition for something. Told him I am not going to sign any more petitions because

:• Then he has my name and address.

• And how do I know he’s legitimate?

• And how does he know I’m a registered voter?

He had no identification. Told him we seniors especially need to be a bit more cynical about giving out our information — I feel I need to share with you also.

And any particular reason these people show up in parking lots frequented by seniors? Are we too trusting?

Too bad we have to watch ourselves around strangers, but better to be safe.
