Early this morning at 2:30 am, i heard my doorknob rattle and looked out and saw this guy standing there staring back..i told him through the window i don't know you, but he kept on knocking on my door and saying" Please"..I'm sorry"..so i walked away and wondered what to do?..I think he was either drunk or stoned..then he started tapping on the window and saying the same words again..so i went around the house to make sure everything was locked..and after about 10 min after that he finally left....Boy talking about being shook up..I couldn't go back to sleep at first but did and just now woke up..Good thing i had no where to go today.

That was scary. I am unsure if I would have opened the door that late for a complete unknown face. But wait. I had ordered some pizza and a big coca cola for us last evening.... and... they have not yet delivered my consignment

@Rosekitty You could have pulled me out of the cupboard. Maybe it was time to practice some of my spells

If he didn't leave when I told him to I would have called the police to send someone out here and see what he wants and is doing here. That is scary especially if you are by yourself.

Oh wow, how creepy is that?! I wouldn't have opened the door either - who knows what some people would do - it could be an act for all we know. Maybe he just wanted a brownie!

That would be worrying at that time of night, in fact at any time really. It sounds as if he was drunk.

Maybe he was needing some help, but I am not sure I would have opened the door at 2:30 am. It is a bit scary.

Wow, that was scary. You did the right thing though in not answering the door, as you never know if he was going to hurt you, or what he was planning to do. When the police range my doorbell at 2:30 in the morning, I never answered the door, but I did ask them who it was, and when they said they were the police, I wondered what i had done wrong. It was nothing to be alarmed about, but I was totally scared. Everything was okay, but just having them here was a comfort, as i know when and if I di need them, I can rely on them being there.

@Rosekitty I know what you man. When the police came to my door during the night, I was scared stiff. I wasn't going to answer the door unless I knew who was on the other side of it. I did finally open it though, and did explain to them what was going on, and it was funny, as there were several at the door, and also an ambulance too.

I am so glad your ok. Make sure everything is locked up. Regardless if you have a dog or not I think I would put a sign outside saying "BEWARE - Attack Dog on Premises". You can not trust anyone these days.

I've always said, beware if rattling knobs, it can only lead to trouble. But seriously, you should have phoned the cops. There are too many loonies out there these days and you need to stay safe. Glad you're ok. x

@Rosekitty It could well have been me (in my dreams of course) What night was it? I have you down as my dream babe for Thursdays. Any other night then it can't possibly be me. Unless I am getting my days mixed up. Come to think of it, what day is it today?

@Rosekitty I know, calling the cops takes things to a whole new level. Years ago I lived in a not so great neighborhood and this guy beat up a woman. Her face was bleeding so I took her some paper towels and called for medical help. Well, when the cops came, she was gone. They acted like I was lying (told them to go look at the blood on the sidewalk) and then started questioning me about why she left (asked them, how would I know, seriously?). Very annoying experience, but I couldn't see myself not trying to help and realized cops are like another culture sometimes.

@sherryericha wow..almost like you are guilty of something..so wrong..i know i've had bad experiences with them accusing my kids of things when they were just sticking up for themselves so i try to never get them involved.. sorry how they treated you..
