Welcome back, fellow humans.
There were many odd incidents in my childhood. In my previous residences, the neighbourhood seemed quite peaceful but you will never know who is stalking or watching you. They are waiting for the right moment to strike.
One afternoon, I was trying to relax. Then, I heard someone whispering something but I disregarded it. I saw an arm appearing out of the open window. I was unsettled after seeing a teenager trying to climb in through the window. I screamed at the top of my lungs after seeing the intruder. He ran. I never saw him, again. After that incident, I was scared to leave the windows open.
Just like any other day, my mom came back from work and she was thinking of taking a nap. My brother was watching his favourite TV show. My dad decided to drop me off at school and he forgets to lock the door behind him. My brother recalled a car passing by our house. A young man came out of the car with a crowbar. He used the crowbar to open the door. My brother heard the ruckus and walked into the corridor. He saw this young lad. The burglar got startled and ran for his life.
Three years ago, my brother and I were preparing a meal for lunch. I spotted a man outside. He marched towards the porch. I assumed the man to be a salesperson. All of a sudden, he started knocking on the door. The knocking got louder and violent. If he continued, he would have kicked down the door. We were frightened. I was paralysed and I did not know what I should do next. Eventually, I took my phone and ran towards the door to make sure that it was properly locked. The man fled the scene after he heard my footsteps.
I am not sure how I should feel about all this. It was frightening!😖😫😩😲😵😱😨 So, when my brother and I hear loud noises outside the house, we ensure that the doors and windows are locked and secured. It is necessary to have the contact details of the Garda on the phones. 👮♀️👮🚓🚨🚔
Anyone else had any similar experiences?
What have you learned from the incident?
