I guess most of us have this happen sooner or later. Yesterday I inspected an apartment building. We knocked on each unit and rang the door bell before entering.
Upon entering we would call out to make sure no one was home. Close to the end we entered one unit that the owner was obviously a duck hunter. We were commenting on the all the mounted ducks and related items. When I finished the downstairs I looked up the stairs and saw the attic scuttle. I grab my ladder and noisily headed up the stairs. I unfolded the ladder and walked around to the other side to climb up. I noticed bare legs hanging out from under the covers on a bed in the adjoining bedroom!
Needless to say I grabbed my ladder and made a hasty exit. All I could think was hunter, guns and a waking to a stranger in his apartment. Have to say that was a bit unnerving!
Thinking back I think I could have finished my inspection and this fellow would have never known! But then again it could have been a women for all I know. I didn't stick around to find out.
