I thought that I would share some of the strange requests and questions that we have received at Christian House Sitters.
These all came from people who had visited our web site and sent their messages from the site.
If I am doing Christian House Sitting will they still insist that I get a passport to travel to ……….(name of country)?
I was tempted to reply by saying. No all the world govenrments know me and so they do not expect a passport from anyone I have approved.
Your house sitters look after pets as well. Please can you find me a puppy for my son? It is his birthday next week.
I was tempted to ask if they wanted me to get one of our sitters to steal a puppy.
How many houses will you have in ……….(name of country) next August?
I was tempted to reply. Sorry but my prophetic powers do not extend to that
Can you help me get a job in America?
This person wanted me to arrange a Green Card, and then get her a job. When I asked why she had approached me she replied that it was because she is Christian.
There have been loads more but this small selection will give you the flavour. In some ways these messages are great. They provide Marilyn and I with a good laugh in the middle of an often busy day. The tricky part is crafting a suitable reply without upsetting the person who sent us the question.
Having said all this I am delighted to say that 99% of the folk who contact us are great. We have, as a result, got some wonderful houses all over the world.
God bless you,
