At about 7:30 this morning I woke up to someone kicking my bedroom door trying to get in. At first I thought it was my dad but I heard an unfamiliar voice, so I wasn't sure. When I opened the door there was a black guy standing there and he took off running out the back door. It was one of the scariest moments of my life.

I called the police right after that and 3 police cars came and a search dog. Then I called my dad. It turns out the guy had broken a basement window. He went in my dads room and took some money, a box of change and a watch. There were quarters, dimes, and nickels that had been dropped all around by the back door.

I didn't have my glasses on when I saw the kid, and only saw him for a second. So I couldn't give the police much of a description. None of our computers or tvs were taken, and the thief went right by a few hundred dollars worth of Nerf guns in the basement. Many of them were painted or modified.

That freaked me out seriously. The police are coming back later today to get more information. What can you do when somebody's kicking in your door and your home alone asleep in bed? That was crazy.

Dude, that sucks. I thought it sucked when I went into my workshop in my garage and found my drill missing. I thought I misplaced it but apparently it had been stolen.

5. Protip: sarcasm is good for making someone else look like more of an idiot than they already do. However, if you are an idiot to start with, using sarcasm just makes you look like a COLOSSAL idiot.

Lesson learned-always have your glasses with you-And keep a singled titan at your side.

But seriously-he didn't rob you-that's good. Although-he was trying to kill you. He was as you said-right by your door-and didn't try and take anything. Now he doesn't even have to break the window. Liking the titan idea?

Of course if you have all your toy guns painted all super cool and tactical so they looked like real guns, your little intruder friend is going to be back with his friends to get the thousands of dollars worth of real firearms he saw while in your basement.

Oh yeah, that follows perfectly logically. He was a burgler who stole what small and easily portable valuables he could quickly identify before anyone saw him. This is not a poorly written television show; it was not a conspiracy to make it only "look like a robbery". From what he says, it WAS a robbery.

Anyway, that's a pretty frightening experience. I'm sorry to hear you were robbed, though, I guess we should be thankful that the burgler was intelligent, or scared, enough not to add assault to his charges.

"Gansta" or "Gangster"? As the former will try to get you to screw him up the butt, and the latter will make you sleep with the fishes.

Unless its a "wangsta", then chances are, he'll scream diddle if he tries to hurt you.
