The homeless people came to visit.

The HOA was not amused. Siren, ambulance, fire chief, sheriff car. What are poor people doing here???

Told them it was Thanksgiving and I invited them into my home to share a meal. What is the problem? They left, no one went to jail, all is good.

They retired into poverty. No savings. Dumpster diving.

I suppose it goes along with "How many people for Thanksgiving, What I did for Thanksgiving, do you decorate for Christmas and what are you doing for Christmas?"

just go with the flow.

This story for me was definitely the most interesting.

I live in a small HOA, so I am curious....

What was so obvious about poor people eating at your home? Did they walk through with shopping carts?

I could have a house full and how would anyone know?

Seriously? To call in the police and fire departments?

"Hello, 911, I'd like report people in the 10% tax bracket next door."

The Fire Chief shows up rarely, and uber rarely on Thanksgiving. It would have to be a terrorist attack or something...

Yeah, but they don't show up in force for any reason. And unless it is small town USA, claiming the Fire Chief showed up is kinda a give away.
