First thing is to listen and make sure that there is a burglar, then I would quietly phone the police. That would be easy because the phone is right beside the bed. Then hope the police turn up in a hurry, because I wouldn't be moving from my bed until they arrived. No way would I confront someone who is in my house if I cannot see how big they are. LOL

well, in India at least, the police wouldn't turn up, till the burglar returns to his home...locking urself in ur bedroom should be the first thing u have to do i think before u call police and wait...anyway thanks for the reply...

I suspect that the police wouldn't arrive in a hurry here in Australia, but that is just because of the amount of calls they get to all sorts of things. Yes, definately stay hidden and quiet in bed for me.

Panic big time but hopefully have enough sense to not let myself be seen or heard, and if possible call the police. The last thing I would wanna do is confront the person..

Well calling the police would be a good idea and since I have my cell next to me that aint gonna be tough and the next thing to do would be to call the neighbours so that they will wake up the entire locality....U dont want to be alone...the burglar could be armed....

ya that would be a clever thing to do, but what if he took some very valuable possession of urs and ready to escape? u can't wait for the police then, can u?
