For the past 4 days, there's been noises at between 2-3am in the morning downstairs in my house, I've been woken up by them but cast them away as an over-reaction. Tonight, however, I decided to stay up and see what it was. It's a guy (quite tall, wearing a hat, is all I could get through the privacy glass) trying to get into my house!

About ten minutes ago (about 2.35am) I was chilling on the laptop in my room, girlfriend sleeping next to me, when I heard what was distinctly the rattle of the outside door handle of my front door. I grabbed a golf club from the cupboard and went downstairs and seen this shadowy figure standing and trying my door. I flipped the light on, heard him make a little alerted noise and then ran off, leaving the gate open.

This is pretty messed up =| When I first heard the noises a few days ago, I thought it was just the cats pissing about, but now that I think back, the noises and times add up.

I'm not sure whether to call the police or not, but it's a pretty surreal thing to think that if he was justa thief, he'd try the same door on consecutive nights and not bother with any other break in method.

What do, pit?

Open the door and ask him what he wants. Or you can set a traap to capture him and find out what he wants.

so what you're saying is that, after getting out of the water naked with 5+ guys, you thought that once the girls were around you had better get some clothes on?

Yes, that's the thing to do. I'll open my door to a guy who's up at 3 in the morning trying to open my door, instead of knocking, and get the banter with him.

does he play with the door knob for a while? or just wiggle it once then go away? maybe open the door next time, have a gun by your side (make sure its visible to man-in-hat), and casually say, "can i help you". then post pics....

Sorry, I just wanted to say hi. :\

SlayingEdit:

You should seriously file a report with the police, though, if it happens again.

Get a camera or wait out front at night.


This is exciting...

It's probably Santa Claus. I heard he is trying new techniques to break in your house for Christmas as the old chimney technique has gone up in smoke...
This will start a RIOT! in me

I would sit downstairs with my weapon of choice in my reading chair, placed facing the front door, wearing my smoking jacket and slippers while smoking my pipe. Leave the door unlocked and wait for him. What follows can get a brutal or as kinky as you like.

**** you guys are useless haha ( i guess that's the whole point of the pit though hey). Dude just call the cops, tell them what you just wrote and that your pretty certain this guy is either trying to rob your place or hurt you and/or your girlfriend.

Being without chimneys in Florida, We are used to Santa just coming in through the front door. Don't worry TS, we've gotten to the bottom of this mystery.

Tape a sign on your door saying, "I rubbed my balls on the doorknob".

wait all night for him (with a weapon just to be sure) and when he comes start playing dueling banjos
#37
Hmmm...fapping on door handle is a little nasty. but spreading a thick layer of vaseline over it will cause the same effects...
#38
Maybe you shouldn't go to bed and see if you can stay awake near the door... if he comes back you will be ready, if he doesn't, well then you might think everything is ok. Then the next night you sleep and he tries again. This shit freaks me out.

I never said it was fact based on evidence. There are other kinds of fact, such as Fact based on such a large number of opinions that it cannot possibly be conscidered false.

If you are strong man and can fight then I say stay up again, and wait by the door at the same time as usual, when he comes up open the door and approach him

or if you are a weak man, set up a security cam outside and record him trying to open your door for about a week then take it to the police.

Oh, and am I the only one thinking of this mystery man as if hes dressed up as Inspector Gadget?
