This is precious. An intoxicated 33 year old Pennsylvania man had 2 too many. An apartment resident was sleeping when he felt someone crawl into bed next to him. Thinking it was his girlfriend he called out her name, something like “Honey is that you?” The drunk dude says in a deep male voice “No it’s not.”
OMG! CAN YOU IMAGINE???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The resident quickly jumped out of bed and grabbed his trusty aluminum bat until the police arrived. WOW!
When I read stories like this I cringe. I understand what it means to be drunk and do stupid things, (I saw it in a movie once.) But to actually go into someone’s house and seek out their bed and crawl into it with someone else in it!!!!!!!
What makes me cringe even more than the drunken guy is the baseball bat swinging resident that DOESN’T LOCK HIS DOORS. Do you see the hypocrisy in not locking your doors, but having a bat near your bed? And the irony of not locking your doors and a guy crawling into your bed. The whole story stinks of dumb.
Lock your doors. Require a peep hole on your door. In an apartment ask if you have permission to install an in-apartment home security system with motion detectors. Require it. Wireless home security systems are non-invasive and not expensive.
