      I’m downstairs and my bro is upstairs (we are both under 16 so neither of us have a license) and I’m so scared because we cant get out without just sprinting and I’m slow so I would be dead, kidnapped, or raped (I’m female) and I am always scared home alone and I’ve been home alone so many times
      I hate myself

        I live in an apartment and I was left home alone for a while. The next door neighbors decided that was the time to....ehem... do things. So I was sitting on my bed, watching TV, when this happens. Btw, the wall we share with them, is the wall that my TV is on.....yeah.

          I am a madman in rust a video game I've put in atleast 800 hours in. I always wear me headphones but my hearing has always been abnormal to most average people I would hear things nobody can. One day I was playing and heard talking behind me. And thought nothing of it because I was living with my family and they were all here but it was wierd because I never heard my massive bedroom door open wich I'm sure I closed. And when I say heard people talking I mean they were right behind me. I turn around to look nothing. But my door was open. And the house was quiet. My cat came rushing to me but was not furious instead very loving as if she felt remorse for me....

                    It was midnight, and I knew nobody would be home until later in the morning. I heard footsteps. Turned off my video and turned to look at the door. Nothing, figured it must be upstairs neighbors. Hear something again, I turn and look. Nothing. Before I turn back around, my door handle starts turning. im super scared and I'm thinking of what to do. The door opens. Person comes in and yells boo! It's my mom. Decided to visit without telling me. This happened a month ago and I still hate being alone even in broad daylight

                      One time I was home alone at night and heard an animal get killed in the front yard. It sounded like a woman screaming so I thought I was gonna die!!

                      Another time was when I just got home from school to an empty house. Nothing had been turned on. Then I hear a male voice yell from down the hall “MOM!” NO ONE WAS HOME!! NONE OF THE TVS WERE ON! My house has gotta be haunted!

                            The creepiest thing that happened to me when I was home alone was when I was taking a pee on the toilet. Then I heard the laugh of a women through the vent. I almost cried, man

                                        my house was only robbed once and it was kinda funny in retrospect but back them it was terrifying, the guy mistook me for his cohort (it was dark and he couldn't make out my face so he had a long conversation with me about how the people arent home and that the're gonna get away with a shit to of cash, and then i just turned on the lights and pionted my gun at his face and said "oh by the way im not dave" and the look on his face was fucking priceless.

                                        edit: you probably think this was super bad ass but i forgot to metion was fully naked exept for thigh high shrek socks and i was a slightly overweight hairy ass man.

                                              In my old house, if I was left alone I would NEVER be upstairs. Because in my room if you were *COMPLETELY* quiet you could here the loud *_pitter patter_* of something above the room. I lived in a two-story house and I had a upstairs room. No possible way you could get above my room since there wasnt a door or way to get above my room. Also when I was in my house sleeping downstairs, I woke up to hear that noise. *_Pitter Patter._* I also heard some squeaks and it was coming from the kitchen. I was absolutely sure it was rats. The other night before my mom cleaned out kitchen and found rat shit. It was disgusting and I was almost tempted to open the kitchen cabinet. I told my mom about this. Her being a Palauan islander she thought nothing of it. Also when we had a dog she was constantly in my room or the kitchen growling and barking. This was the second time I have ever seen rats in my house. We luckily moved out because it didn't sound like a small group of rats. It sounded like a whole fucking colony like the rat colony in ratouille. It creeped me the hell out.

                                                        I once had my parents on vacation when I was 16, I was playing Dying Light and in sunset time and after I was hearing weird noises from frontyard and backyard. We live in suburbs somewhere that has some of most crimes in it and also I don't have a pet so I could see its reaction. I locked every single door, grabbed a knife played a loud music and lighted up every single lamp in the house, and kept on playing another game.

                                                            My dog has done this once. Came home after work and my sis was out for the night. We're chilling in my room and suddenly he lifts his head and pinch his ears down. I have neighbors so I thought maybe he was being nosey but nope. Starts going ballistic, barking and growling at the front door, gets up and literally stands over me (I was still laying down). It was only my sister's bf coming home but it was the first time I ever saw him go apeshit. He's usually very cuddly and even tempered

You see, my grandfather was a bit of a perfectionist, and always wanted my glasses to be clean. I fell asleep with kinda wet glasses (i wiped them poorly after washing them) and I had a dream that my grandfather was still alive and was wiping my glasses. When i woke up, my (now clean) glasses were on the table along with the cloth that was meant to wipe it next to it.

                                                                  Dear god was i very scared after that

The only thing that happened in my apt is that my dad was home alone because i was at my moms house and then my dad hears someone open the door and walking in and my dad calls out my name asking if it was me and the dude just goes away

                                                                    Edit: when i was home alone i always have my bedroom dor closed because i listen to loud music so i dont want the neighbours to hear loud music but my dad storms into my room yelling and ive never been more scared in my life

My family left me home alone and there I was in the 4th floor of my house in my bedroom exploring my phone, I decided to try out calling my house landline (situated on the 1st floor) and my middle school ass freaked when someone answered and said “Who’s this?”

I went back to my room scared and waited for a while and my cat was still looking towards the stairs and suddenly he just went back to bieng normal so i checked an there was nothin there

Anyways, I'm sitting there watching some one moment and the next I hear some man outiside (I was also next to my window) yelling so I peek through my blinds and look cause I was stupid and curious and the next thing I hear is "THERE'S GONNA BE A MURDER TONIGHT. I DON'T CARE WHO IS WATCHING. SOMEONE ON THIS STREET WILL DIE TONIGHT! "and it just so happened that he turned his head towards me. Idk if he saw me or not but back then I was mortified.

                                                                                  one day when i got off from school, i unlocked the door and chilled out after a stressful day. my parents usually get home from work a half hour-an hour depending if they got groceries or not, so i was alone. maybe 15 minutes later i was letting my cat outside when i noticed a random black chevrolet truck sitting on the side of the road in front of my house. the man inside had a camera and stared taking pictures of my house and i, so i ran out with my phone taking photos of the truck and his licsence plate as he drove off. i could hear him yelling "shit shit shit!"
                                                                                  long story short, a 12 year old outsmarted a 40 year old creep, because i got a really clear picture of the plate. turns out he was planning to kidnap either me or my sister, and he was operating a cocaine lab. the truck he was using was stolen, along with his identity. hes in prison for 25 years or so.

Like I come from a Hispanic house hold and I wasn’t left alone at the house till I was 15 or older I’m currently 17 going on 18 and unfortunately I myself had issues with people trying to break in, but this time I didn’t have a huge dog no lol. ( Hispanic household) meant I had a damn chihuahua and a parrot lol. Needless to say it was my parrot and chihuahua who drive out the intruder out if my house Lmfaoo all i remember was me hiding under my bed then clearly an stranger( man ) walking into my room lmfao my chihuahua went Ape shit 😂😂 and my parrot fucking started screaming like a human needless to say the man ran out my house through the back door from a viscous chihuahua and parrot 😂💀
