WoW! What an experience!! 2 guys waiting for this fellow until he came home in the wee hours of the morning. They just wanted a place to stay for 4 days. I'll bet they ate all this fellas food too! Stole his TV!! And then they leave! But the victim waits an hour and a half before reporting the crime! Let's see! Where is that swamp land I have for you to buy? Oh! There it is right under the bridge I sold you!!!
