Funny things that scared you
Just thought I'd start a thread and ask everybody if they've ever had someone "break in" and had it turn out to be something completely different.
Last night I was awoken to the sound of breaking glass around 4am. Immediately my girlfriend and I both sat up in bed, I grabbed the shotgun as she listened. I waited a couple minutes with my heart pounding through my chest. After a couple minutes of not hearing anything I crept out into the hallway to see my cat sitting on the half wall where I had placed a glass cup earlier in the night...and what do you know, there was a nice pile of broken glass on the floor :twak:
I'm glad no one decided to try and break in, but glad I reacted the way I did. As soon as I hear the noise I shot straight up in bed, leaned over, grabbed the shotgun and chambered a round. I was ready to go in mere seconds. It took quite a few minutes for my heart rate to return to normal and allow me to finally go back to sleep...:embarassed:
SO, what's fallen over or creaked in your house that immediately sent you into action and turned out to be nothing?
