    Locked doors and drunks

    Ha - just got a real good chuckle,

    So I'm browsing the threads and can't help but overhear the visitors from the next apt (who've been drinkin' a bit) talking in the breezeway. One gets a bit lost and tries to open my door - which is always locked. His buddies immediately rein him in. I realized what was going on so no big deal. However, I did hear one comment, "Dude, we're in Missouri, you could get shot doin' that".

    Yup.

    It is good to know that even when drunk, they show some common sense.

    Keeping doors locked prevent an incident described in the OP from becoming a tragedy for everyone involved.

    That's when you yell out "LISTEN TO YOUR FRIEND!" from behind a closed door so they get a good chuckle.

    Picturing this in my mind's eye gave me a good chuckle.
    I haven’t heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    A good example of common sense prevention. That could keep you safe from a home invasion, and prevents a tragic, though justified (IMHO) shooting.

    That would be funny as well, but I just as soon not have any more people than absolutely necessary know there are guns in my apt.

    It's basically true in nearly every state.

    If only all upstanding folks would think this way, when mucking about.

    If only a few more felons would get a clue, too.

    Our patience as victims is at an end. No more curling up in a ball and taking one for the Gipper while on the phone wishing for instantaneous appearance of "guns" to assist. Yup.

    Remember, the door is locked for his protection. This happened to my wife while she was in college. A drunk guy got REALLY forceful trying to get into her apartment thinking his girlfriend locked him out. Got as far as breaking the jam so that the only thing keeping him out was the chain lock. When my wife's roommate shoved a S&W 627 in his face he realized he had the wrong apartment.

    When I was on a working assignment at the GM Moraine Assembly Plant and living in an apartment, a girl who was so drunk knocked on my door one night. I could hear her leaning against the door while knocking. When I opened the door, she wanted to know what I was doing in her girlfriend's apartment. I knew her girlfriend, and directed her to go down one flight of stairs, and knock on the door of the apartment right below mine. She said that even though she knew I was lying, she would try knocking down there. The sight of her walking down the hall with her arms out holding both walls, as she staggered away, was the last I ever saw of her.

    Wow, that guy is really lucky she had that much patience.

    #2 Daughter was in her apartment about 3 months when at around 0230, some jackwagon pounded on her door yelling "Hey baby, let's party". Her trusty laser equipped XDS in hand, she gets up and touches the laser. .. beam went on her floor, under the door and onto the semi polished concrete floor . The lout shouts,, "Sorry , wrong place! " Departed the fix smartly .
