SOMEONE JUST BROKE INTO MY HOUSE! WHILE I WAS IN IT!

(They ran off when I yelled at them and they realized someone was home.)

This happened to me last summer. I know exactly how you feel. At least, I think I do. I felt violated and began to question if I should own a firearm. I decided instead to just secure the apartment better with a bar on yhe patio door.

Charity Bradford said...

OMGosh! Are you alright? That is SCARY!

Lisa Aldin said...

WHAT? THAT IS CRAZY? WHAT HAPPENED?

Josin L. McQuein said...

They popped the door jamb with a crowbar or something.

I'm fine, just a little jittery.

Angelica R. Jackson said...

I feel for you! I had the cops chase a guy into my backyard and he tried to get in through the glass door, but thankfully it was locked. Even with cops there, it was freaky!
And so glad they ran off when they realized you were there!

Demitria said...

Holy crap! Did you call the cops. That is really freaky. Hope you're okay.

S.P. Bowers said...

Gasp! That is crazy! Hope everything is ok.

Delia said...

Holy Crap! So glad you didn't get hurt.

Terry Towery said...

Wow. I hope you called the police. Whoever is dumb enough (or stoned enough) to break into a home in broad daylight needs to be collected and jailed immediately, before someone gets hurt.

Glad you're okay.

Matthew Rush said...

Holy shit. Are you okay? Do you live alone? Do you have a dog?

Josin L. McQuein said...

Yes, I'm okay. The neighbor across the street is actually a cop, of all things.

Yes, I have dogs. I was so proud of my baby girl - she did her best Pit bull impression :-P

There was a piece of heavy upholstery material strung over the door because of the drafts with all the cold weather lately, and it actually caught the wood as it splintered and kept it from opening easily. It was held up with giant thumbtacks from Wal-Mart, not even nails. Best $4 I ever spent - thank God!

My cousin's hubby's came over and got it secured.

Katherine said...

That sucks, I'm sorry.

We had a break in a few months ago. Which is why my parents' dog now lives with us. She parks at the wind and is an excellent deterrent.

I've been thinking of installing some door jamb armor anyway, just to be cautious since a lot of places around here are getting their doors kicked in.

Kayeleen Hamblin said...

Wow. Glad you are okay. That is the scariest thing ever.

Jen said...

Glad you're okay! That would have been scary.

Going to lock my doors now, just in case...

Bethany Mattingly said...

Glad you're alright. What a scary thing.

Broken Angel said...

Oh! I'm glad that your neighbor's a cop. And that your dog did a good job of barking, I hear. Are you feeling mentally ok?

A Backwards Story said...

That happened to one of my co-workers this past Tuesday. I'm so sorry. I'm glad everyone's okay, though! *snug*
