What would you think if someone left this on your door?

A little while ago I opened my front door and a piece of paper fell from it so I picked it up to read it. It was an article on how to control cockroaches, written by two exterminators. I looked around at the other doors in the apartment complex but we seem to be the only one who got this paper. I don't see why. Our apartment is clean, its not nasty or anything.

  • You can be as clean as you want but if just one person in your complex has cockroaches than everyone does. That's why they have survived for millions and millions of years.

  • My door was only shut for 10 minutes. Unless everybody in 16 apartments discovered the paper and took it down in that length of time (which I doubt) we are the only ones who got one.

  • Could have been someone just doing something that they thought would be funny. Sorta like knocking on a door and running. Did you happen to hear anyone in the hallway in the 10 minutes that your door was closed?

  • I wouldn't worry about it. If it happened here, out in the country, I might call the police because there have been a string of burglaries out here recently. People coming by selling windex type cleaner or carpet cleaner, coming in broad daylight. For you, though it sounds like a real exterminator. I'd throw it out. Maybe ask the landlord is that ok (do they ok strangers coming by?) I don't care for soliciting like that.
