Sometimes even if someone is very polite, they don't have the best of intentions. Granted, the Geico Gecko on TV today had a soothing voice . . . but what was his real plan for me?
It doesn't help that he resembles one of those Dinosaurs I saw at the Zoo. As with Strangers, no matter how nice they may appear sometimes it's best if you just scream and run to Mommy. Ask questions later.
