Never had my house robbed
Nobody can tell if I am home or not because I park in my garage
I work from home so I am home a lot anyway
I never post my upcoming trips on facebook

I have a Ring video doorbell.

People know pretty well what they are by now.
Religious/sales/political solicitors do not ring them because they donít want to be recorded, but they are too dumb to realize you donít have to press the button for it to record anything.

I imagine just having one may thwart some robbers.

Some old guy with a brightly coloured bucket has been stealing Rings and other video security devices. The cameras give great details of the guy. Incredibly, this has been going on for weeks.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Very sorry to hear that darkoz.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I honestly bet ring never considered that scenario I mean anyone is willing to be a fall guy for any amount of money as long as it satisfies that person. Iíve been trying to invent something similar but if you are being serious then there is one of these guys in every city Iíll have an issue that needs to be solved.

Man, that sucks. I had that happen to me once a while back when I was in AC.

I was finally on a good run after hours of back and forth & started pulling ahead in Blackjack. I get a call from my security alarm company that there's a break in at my home and the police are headed there now.

I played one last hand for $250 and won, so I cashed out ahead and set out on the 2 hour drive home.
When I got there I was heart broken not because they took anything of high value, but that my loyal dog had run out after the crooks and probably saved my home from being robbed any further. The police of course said they could do nothing to help me find her and I drove around the neighborhood and sat up all night waiting for her to return home.

When I woke up the next morning I found her hiding under the deck and covered in dirt, I was never happier to have to give my dog a bath!
