Neighbor Scare last night
Last night at about midnight while my fiancé and I were getting ready for bed someone knocked on our apartment door. I thought it was a little strange so I approached the door cautiously. (Side note, there have been numerous car break-ins and thefts lately in my area.) I looked through the peep hole and it was covered so this made me very worried so I quickly went into my bedroom which is near the front door and got my M&P 9c from my bedside table and returned to the door. All the while the person outside is still knocking. I asked through the door for whoever was on the other side to stop covering the peep hole. The person outside did not respond. I had my fiancé on the phone with the apartment complex security, whom is an off duty police officer. I again asked the person to stop covering the peep hole. After asking again they did. I looked through and all I could see was a guy’s face. I asked him to step back from the door. He did enough that I could see both hands clearly and they were empty. I cracked the door with my left hand and my M&P in my right hidden behind the door. The guy then proceeded to tell me that he was my downstairs neighbor and that my dishwasher was too loud and keeping him and his girl awake. At this point the security arrives and asked what was going on. My fiancé came and took the M&P so I could open the door to talk to the officer. The night ended with the officer informing my neighbor that covering the peep hole was not a good idea and there were better ways to handle the noise complaint.
