Who gets up when there is a strange noise?
January 23, 2017 4:21am CST
If you hear a strange noise that sounds like someone downstairs, do you get up? If you are single, do you get up or stay put and hope it was nothing, just your imagination. If you are in a couple, who gets up? You or your partner? I always get up, I don't know why, but it's always me. I have a kind of preoccupation with intruders so I am very safety conscious. I am only discussing this because the floorboards upstairs are creaking and it really sounds like someone is up there.

@Clairelouiser Last week I had an intruder in the house but I had not heard him. I got up for a drink of water at around 2 pm because the night was so hot and I could not sleep because of it. I went to kitchen and put on light and there was a man standing looking at me with surprise on his face. He ran out of door possibly because it was far too hot for me to be wearing any clothes!

I do! Well... if I want to make sure what the sound means... We have a small house (no upstairs or downstairs - unless you count the basement) so it's not hard to look around. Sometimes, I already know what the sounds mean. For instance... lizards normally frolic somewhere in the kitchen and they sometimes knock a plastic spoon to the floor. When I hear that sound, I know what it means and don't look anymore. But if it's some other sound that doesn't sound like a plastic spoon hitting the floor, I might go and check it out. As for sounds coming from outside... I would normally always check what the sounds mean. It could just be a cat jumping on the roofs, but I'd feel better finding out if it was indeed a cat instead of a burglar...

We have dogs and they are always running out to bark at deer, possums, raccoons and wild cats and even a young bear once! We can tell by listening to their barks if a person is there ... it is definitely different. If I didn't have dogs I would be up constantly
