Today, our satellite provider sent a technician over to install a new HD receiver. I always get nervous when these people come over because it is always just my son and I. Well, these guys creeped me out from the moment they came in the door. I called my oldest stepson downstairs to help me feel at ease. He also noticed something was off. Well, the technician brought his stepson with and he was on the one who had me soooo nervous. He kept walking around looking at my husband's deerheads and looking in our gun cabinet talking about all the guns. I tried staying polite because I was very intimidated. The stepson got done installing our receiver (the dad was outside putting up the new dish)...so I took my youngest son in the kitchen to make his lunch. I have one of those space saver high chairs that sit right on the dining room chair. He was right in the middle of the kitchen and I was turned around fixing his lunch when suddenly I hear him start crying. I turned around and saw the stepson shaking my son's chair with him in it. I had to tell him to stop. I immediately had to take my son out of his chair because he was so scared. I tried to stay as calm as I could because I was afraid of what he might do. I guess I should add that he was 30 years old and my son is 15 months. I called the satellite company as soon as they left....I was bawling!!! They got right on the ball with things and the general manager called me saying this is not the way they conduct business and the stepson should never have been with the technician to begin with. As soon as my husband found out, we immediately went to our local police department to find out what to do. The sad thing is that nothing can be done because he did not physically hurt my son. I am furious about this still! I don't know what to do because I feel like my son and myself were put in danger. I am thinking of contacting a lawyer....what do you think?

If it were a woman would you feel differently about contacting the police? The guy just doesn't have a clue about where personal boundaries lay. He's probably gone along with his uncle other times and maybe those individuals weren't on their guard from the beginning? Do you feel the same way about strangers on the street? I see nothing that he did to raise enough alarm to go to the cops. He saw your husband's guns and animal heads. I would be alarmed if he had brought up the subject of guns and there weren't any in your home!
