28. i've had a home invasion

and yes, i was home at the time. the perps didn't know it though, because my car was parked in the garage and i was by myself and asleep in my locked bedroom. this was about 16 years ago, during thanksgiving week. i usually had my son with me (he was 6 at the time), but he was with his dad's family that year (thank god).

i was wearing earplugs because the neighbors were having a loud party and i didn't feel like calling them out on it, (and the police here don't respond to noise calls). anyway, i heard a loud bang (thru the earplugs) and instantly came awake. i thought it was my water heater, but when i looked at the floor near the bottom of my door, there was a light on, and i never leave the lights on. without thinking, i whipped open the door and ran out to see about 3-4 late teen/young adults standing around in my living room. they'd already taken my vcr and speakers, and a leather jacket, and were trying to get the teevee. i just started screaming at them and they ran out. i attempted to grab the back of one kid's hoodie, but he smacked me away and got out the front door. i was pretty hysterical by then. i was only dressed in a tee shirt and undies, so i couldn't chase them. i made a lot of noise though!

i'm pretty sure that my neighbor and these kids were the same ones who broke in. the neighbor kid was always a slimy little tweaker. the cops didn't come for at least an hour after i called them to report this. long story short, i didn't have a gun, and i wouldn't have one now. i ended up buying bars for my side window though.

pretty frightening experience that i definitely don't want to happen again!
