Yes, always lock your door when you are home!  Allow me to scare the crap out of you:  this lady was in her house with the doors unlocked (and this was a very upscale neighborhood) and this random freaky guy walked right in her back door and killed her in the bathroom while her child watched.  True story.  Lock your doors always. Windows too, for that matter.

That is very scary! Yes, ALWAYS lock the doors when you’re home alone!

I know I do! I even lock the chain lock when I shower/bath. lol My door has three locks on it. haha

That’s terrible!  Yeah, I lock my doors all the time.  We have some shady people around here anyways, it’s just a good habit to get into.  That must have been pretty scary for the kid!

@7SEVENJ9: I know exactly what you mean.  I grew up in LA and I locked everything, including my car doors at all times (people would car-jack you at red lights) and you can never let your guard down for a single minute.

Now I live in Maine where my husband grew up (and is probably similar to where you grew up) and I never have to worry. We go away for the weekend and leave our doors unlocked.  Kinda nice.

But that’s really scary having a neighbor burglarized during the day. Or ever.  At least it wasn’t you and it was a good warning.

Oh my gosh! Scary! I wouldn’t be able to sleep after that! You sound so brave. I live in a very large apartment building, and when my Fiance is gone (camping with his silly friends or whatever) for the night, I hear all sorts of sounds and am always jumping. When the neighbors come home and open their door, I am always thinking, “Ahh! A door opening! They’re going to kill me!” I dunno, maybe that’s just me… And yes, I ALWAYS check my front door and then lock my bathroom door tight when I shower. And, I have to leave the shower curtain open halfway when I’m home alone. Just in case they come in and I can, maybe, hear them or… something… 🙂

I am soo paranoid about this. We just moved into a house and I seriously check the doors 10 times before bed, when we get home, when we leave, when Fiance leaves for work in the morning. Actually, I just got up and checked all the doors again 🙂 lol. Luckily, we seem to have some awesome neighbors and one of them is almost always home and they all hang out in their driveways so it seems like people really look out for each other here. Kind of nice to know.

Yeah, I always lock the doors and car doors too for the reasons 2ndtimeacharm mentioned.

Wow that is nuts!!

This may be one of the reasons we have dogs.  Big scary dogs who don’t like strangers.  I’m comfortable enough having the dogs there to tell me if something isn’t right.  The poor Orkin man tried going into the backyard without knocking on the door first…he got the scare of his life.  The dogs heard him open the side gate and ran outside and chased him down the block.  I found him on top of a car.  🙂

Burglars don’t scare me anymore now, just crazy psycho killers.
