board up the windows!

Someone tried to break into my house 10 minutes ago.

They tried to break open the back door.

I heard a bang and went to see what it was.

They saw me.

They ran.

I called the Police.

Now I'm left wondering if he'll come back when I leave.

Man that's scary! Good thing you were home hopefully he'll be smart enough not to come back seeing as how he knows that you saw him. Stuff like that is so invasive - it's really unsettling.

Glad you're okay though!

Does the NDP know where you live? Scary.

Duncan said...

Certainly scary and crazy. Have you left?

They tried to infiltrate the lobby of the Hilton on the MOON? Wow.

You should be fine. Only an idiot would return to the scene when they were almost caught red-handed. Since idiots can't be trusted though, invest in an alarm system.

It's probably a Conservative looking for Rob Anders. Anybody heard anything about this guy? Is he dead? No, I mean really dead.

Same thing happened to me 5 years ago. It was some 16 year old ice head. I layed a beating on him and called the cops. The police that responded decided I used an unreasonable level of force. They ended up charging me with assault. The judge gave me the option of giving my "victim" an apology or doing community service.

I took the community service.

Eek, how scary. And gross. I'm sorry this happened to you.

Allie said...

That happened to me too. I think you should break a bunch of glass and scatter it at the back door.

yeah, i'm totally fine. It wasn't even really scary, just bizarre.

I saw him through the door window and I said "can I help you?" and then he ran away.

If ever there was evidence that we need to crack down on crime! ;-)

Seriously though, hope that you scared the bejesus out of him and he's now hiding in a corner somehwere.

Nastyboy said...

You should have kicked his ass.

Why didn't you run him down? That's what the A-Team would have done! :)
I am glad your okay Dave. Thats some really crazy stuff. I recommend ADT security.
