Would you open the door and run after them?Call the police?What would you do in a situation like this?I had a peeping tom this summer peeping in the corner of the patio door.My boyfriend was working night shift then.I went to turn my light out in the kitchen and saw something from the corner of my eye.Then a movement.I shut the oven light and went to the door standing in the corner and peeped out.They then went around the house,i grabbed the phone and i called the police.I went outside with my trusty metal baseball bat that i have in the house standing beside the door at night and made alot of noise,my little dog started sniffing around and the police came.They looked around,took a statement and said it was probably some kid playing pranks.Yeah Pranks alright!!I bet he got his pranks off for sure!!As i was in my t-shirt.lol.What would you do in asituation like this?

Hi there. If I saw a peeping tom, at my window I would quickly and discreetly grab my camera and take a photo of him for evidence, and then Id let our pit bull off, grab my bat and go out and whack him, then again, in that situation for real, probably let the dog off...

Grab my sword or crossbow. Then proceed to give chase. If they come back, then I let the cops handle it.

Id have to say that the peepng tom was me and i was the girl being spied on. lol. No, seriously if it was a creepy male or OLDER female id call the cops and shut the shades. But if it was a cute white girl i'd let her watch and i'd tell her to "Come on down!", i mean "come on in".

One time I was gone for a few hours in the evening and when I returned home my high school-aged daughter was frantic and in tears. She had said she saw a peeping tom at the front door. She described what she could see of him which was a forehead, hair and eye color. The next day I told the girls at work about the occurrence. They said they had something they should tell me. It turns out our boss had been in trouble for being a peeping tom and that it was probably him. It made sense -- his hair and eye color, how tall he had to be to see in the window easily and the fact that he had that very day asked me what time I was going to be gone and about how long, acting like it was normal curiosity -- after all, he and his wife had been friends of mine for years. After that, I could not stand to be around him because I wondered how often he had seen me and my daughter getting dressed, etc. I found a different job. I don't live in the same town now for other reasons.
