There was a loud bang on my front door around 9pm . A police type of knock. I go to the door and no one is there. I close the door and go to the next room which has no lights on so they can't see me looking and i see two younger dudes in hoodies creeping in front of a car parked a few feet up my street. They slowly walk from in front of the car after I'm guessing they thought I went back and sat down, they walked past my house across the street, then once they passed my house crossed the street again to my side. One was looking back at my house the entire time while walking down the street, still with their hoods up.
They weren't really big, could have been around 18 year range? Skinny. Do kids still play ding dong ditch? Only other thing or reason I can think of. I thought about how hard they knocked and maybe they were testing to see if I had a dog that would bark?
The fucked up part is just two weeks ago my older neighbor a block down had their door kicked in at 5am as soon as the husband left for work they kicked in the door and took the car keys then left.
I didn't confront the 2 people but I made sure I put my bright ass flashlight on them from my window while they walked down the street.
So what's the deal? Sleep with one eye open? Kids playing, although I don't live in that kind of neighborhood with kids going around playing the knock and run game.
I don't have an alarm or anything like that so not going to lie, kind of worried about going to sleep tonight. Don't have the extra funds for a gun right now either. Thinking about sleeping in the living room so I can hear shit. For them to break in at 5am a few weeks ago that wasn't random, as soon as the husband left for work and it was the wife only?
