4:32 a.m. I never was able to re-establish mobile surveillance with my Subject yesterday. The corporate office didn't get back to me in time. However, I'm back on that case this Thursday and I WILL find out where that guy works if I have to sneak into the back of his '89 Ford Taurus and hitch a ride to do it. I am still bitter about Minivan Lady. Never underestimate a grumpy soccer mom.
Today I am back on the case from Monday, May 23. I expect I will be blogging from the bushes again. This time I'll try to avoid the poison ivy, though. (By the way, I would take Chinese Water Torture to poison ivy between the toes any day.)
It turned out that Monday was Subject's birthday. Some man showed up at her door with flowers and balloons in the early afternoon. He parked down the street. Odd. When he knocked on the door she answered with a big hug and a kiss...and not the kind that you give your brother. I know that she's married (to someone else) because I identified her husband as he was leaving for work early that morning. We'll see what happens today.
4:43 a.m. I was up at 3:00 a.m. correcting reports from investigators and sending them in to Ops. While reading reports I found out that Hummer, (my problem child), broke off his surveillance two hours early yesterday without clearing it with me first. This is a huge no-no. I'm certain he "forgot" to call me because he knows I would have told him to stay on his Subject and do his job. He's so skitish from getting picked up on his previous cases that he's being overly cautious and stupid. I can't wait to call him this morning. He thinks he doesn't like me now. Just wait.
