Conversation in our house yesterday afternoon:

“Hey, hon, you know that flooding issue we’ve been having…”
“Uh-huh.”
“Well, the city’s sending a guy out to check the water flow.”
“Okay.”
“So if you see some stranger poking about in the back yard–“
“Don’t attack the nice man?”
“Right. He’s from the government. He’s here to help.”

Take from that what you will.
