I don’t mind stopping most of the time. I used to live on a rather busy road. It’s all good. If I’m in need to work on the car, I’ll ether stop and give a quick chat and say I’m really sorry I can’t chat much, I gotta get this thing going, 99% apologize and bud me a good day. If I’m really neck deep, it’s ether a big “Thanks Buddy, sorry I can’t chat right now, perhaps later, I gotta stay busy on this one.” Or it is a garage door closed session.
When people stop, I stop and meet them as to stop them because of what’s in the garage. I don’t want to give the stupid trust everybody sense to some stranger. But I never had a problem. People are generally good about things. Locked doors solve a lot of possible problems. Dogs as well!
