    I would probably be stupid enough to go out and fight and then crap myself when I realise what could have happened. I did this once before.

    Yikes!Is your yard enclosed? So he would have had to scale the fence to get in? Was there anything of value in the yard he may have been after? Was there any parties nearby (a drunk idiot from the party?)? Or do you think he was intending to break in? I prob would have yelled at him from the safety of a window that the cops are coming and 'we' have a gun! I would have shone a flashlight on him to scare him off! Freaky!

    Default Re: Are you a go into battle or hide under the doona person?

    I can my dad, lol.
    He lives 30 house blocks away and can arrive quicker than the police could.

    If i had a big dog i'd say suck sh!t @r$eh0le i hope it eats you.

    If it was just dp and i or if dp is home i get a knife and if they come near me i will spray them in the face with deodorant then stab them but i won't go outside after them,

    My mum is 62 and will depending on the night, she goes out with a torch.

    I guess that comes from living in sydney with 4/5 babies and a useless drunk for a husband.

    I would be super freaked out if someone was in my yard cause we live on a farm.
    Id prob be quietly running down the hallway to the kids room whilst calling the closest neighbour then the police

    Yes my yard is enclosed, he came in through the gate (he left it open) My dog wouldn't let him back out through the gate.
    I believe he was coming to steal from our shed but unknown to him we live in our shed as we are building our house (it looks finished from the street). The most common things stolen from our area is tools, pumps etc...
    No drunken parties around either.

    I must admit to being stupid and running outside with just my torch. We have bad snakes so there is always a heavy metal rake at the door.

    I'd freak out!!
    I'd grab my phone call the police while on my way to my kids rooms, bring them in to my room, check all windows/doors are locked then lok my door and hide with my kids. After I was done with the police I'd be ringing everyone trying to get anyone to come over. I don't think I'd grab a knive as I'd be worried us lose it and have them use it in me or my kids.

    That's what I'd like to do, if faced with it I know I'd grab my kids and ring for help, not sure what else though.

    Well I hope he was just after the tools and nothing more sinister! Oh crapola, but glad he ran off and you're safe.

    If someone was in my yard they would want to hide before my OH found them...
    If it happened while he was on nightshift though I'd grab a knife and my phone and run to my DD's room while I called the police. Not that they'd come quickly though!
