At roughly 1:30 this morning someone was pounding on my door. It woke up the dogs that started barking, and of course the baby. I looked out of my peephole, and I saw that there was someone on my porch, but, my motion sensor porch light was not lit even though it was on, and all I could tell was that the person was wearing a sweatshirt with the hood drawn up around their head.
I didn't answer the door. I didn't even ask who it was. I figured that if it WAS someone up to no good, the last thing I should do was tip them off that I was a woman. I looked outside my window later and began to wonder if my next door neighbor hadn't locked herself out of the house. Of course, she has my phone number, and I would think that she would have called me...but, I'm not sure.
Did I do the right thing? What should I have done? What would you have done?
