I know; why should anyone care? It was just weird. I live in an area where we keep our doors unlocked when leaving the house typically, leave our cars unlocked, and never hear about break-ins.
What makes it weird is that my bedroom window is about 3 feet from where I park my car. The lights were on inside the house, and SO and I were inside the bedroom talking and laughing. I heard a noise that sounded like my car door being opened. SO heard it, but he didn’t think it was the car door. I insisted that it was, and he went outside while I told him NOT to go outside. As soon as he stepped out onto the porch, someone who had crouched behind the driver’s side door took off running back behind our house and into the woods – after they slammed the door shut.
Why did they bother to close the door? Lol. Why did they attempt to do this with a lit window that close to the car? I can’t believe that they didn’t hear SO and I inside the house.
I came outside when I heard the car door slam. SO was just standing there with his hands balled into fists at his sides. He turned around, and his face was completely white. He said he was mad. I think he was more startled than anything else. He was 90% sure I was hearing things when he headed out there. I told him that at least it has now been proven that I have superior hearing!
We’re going to make sure we keep the lights on at night and let the neighborhood watch know. The car in question has a broken door lock, so we’ll just have to make sure that we don’t accidentally leave anything in there. I’m sure we scared the person off, and I don’t really think it will happen again, but it creeped me out a bit. I told SO I don’t want him going outside to investigate suspicious noises.
