I'm typing this at 2:30 in the morning. About an hour ago, two people began banging on my front door and ringing my doorbell repeatedly. I hit the "all lights on" button by my bed (gotta love home automation), threw on a bathrobe and took a peak out my front window. Saw a man and a woman in their twenties standing there. No idea what they wanted, but it must be somewhat important, so I approached the door. I put my foot up against the bottom of the door and opened it a crack. The woman pushed the door towards me and stepped into my home. I said, "Who are you? What do you want?" and pushed back. She said, "Hi I'm Casey, ..." - as if she was going to continue the conversation - and pushed back harder on the door, trying to enter my home by force. I said "No!" and used the door to force her back out. Made sure it was locked and dialed 911. Three cops were here in less than a couple of minutes. As much as I bitch about this city's laws & other policies, it's police force is excellent! I suppose my frantic cries to the dispatcher of "someone forcing their way into my home" helped somewhat. One took down a bunch of info from me while the rest began combing the neighborhood. Turns out my neighbor and his friends came home from a bar after a night of drinking. They were all a little drunk, but this girl was way over the top. It's a rare "treat" to see someone so wasted. Anyway, they got out of the car, him & his girlfriend went into his home, and the two friends went into mine. Found out who they were after becoming worried about him - my neighbor has been my buddy since 1st grade; he never locks his door, and rarely parties this late on a weeknight, so I was really concerned that these people had waltzed into his home and were doing who knows what to him. I talked to one of the officers, explained that the neighbor was my buddy and never locks his door and that I was concerned about him. The officer called him and talked to him for a minute. He came out and apologized profusely. So, now that I'm completely shaken and wide awake - let's hear your real life stories about similar subjects. Anyone else ever experience something like this, or any other similarly frightening "crime"?
