one of theses guys came to my door yesterday, im in ohio.
i found it very strange,he was very nervous talkin faster than i could keep up, tellin me he hated to bother me,and it was really strange he told me, he dint want to know how many people lived here or anything, just was here to confirm my address, i just looked at him waiting to see what he said next, and he looked at his paperwork and stated my address, i said yea thats correct, and he said thanks thats all i needed, i looked at him kinda puzzled and he said i would be recieving a package from the census bureau i would need to fill out and headed for his car. i watched him and it looked loike indeed he punched my address either into a pda or gps or something, then he left.. what i found strange about it was i saw this car a few minutes before he came to my home across the road from me, where ther are 2 homes,he did not get out and approach there homes, was just rifling thru some papers in his car then left,about 5 minutes later he shows up at my front door. didnt stop at my neighbors either, just straight back to my home bypassing all other homes around, then when he left he went straight to my neighbors at the other end of the property i live on.. i live on a 90 year old mans 175 acre tree farm,its been in the guys family for over 100 years.
before the man left he gave me a paper which i will type a copy of here.. he was 40ish very clean cut, looked like a cop or undercover,had a us census badge hanging around his neck on a lanyard, anyway here is what paper said
