I'm home alone and I just heard someone knocking on my door
I'm home alone and I swear I just heard someone knock on my door (not the front door, but the door to my room). I went out and looked and no one was there.
I swear to god that someone just knocked on my door. I am so scared, I'm having trouble sleeping.
OP - step away from the bong.
Do me a favor, open the door and let him in. Oooh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
How hard is it to yell, "I hear you knocking but you can't come in"?
I'm coming over to hold you, dear.
Who can this be knocking at my door?
Go away, don't come round here no more.
Can't you see that its late at night?
I'm very tired, and I'm not feeling right.
All I wish was to be alone.
Stay away, don't you invade my home.
Best off if you hang outside.
Don't come in, I'll only run and hide.
This would freak me out.
You might have been half asleep though -- is that possible? That has happened to me.
R6, I wasn't half-asleep; I had just crept into bed when this happened. And also, I keep hearing this soft rhythmic ticking sound.
Okay, I'm about to give going to sleep one more shot.
If you're still alive tomorrow, let us know. Otherwise, RIP!
You're home alone and sleeping with the bedroom door closed?
Ann and I have a lot of spare time.
Let's assume it's a ghost. If so, you have two choices: either it's a very polite ghost, knocking before it enters (because of course a door is no barrier); or it's just interested in freaking you out, in which case it has already achieved its goal. But it can't hurt you, so you've gotten yourself all upset over nothing.
So you can either say, "Please come in and introduce yourself," or else "Go away now, I've finished freaking out and I know you can't hurt me."
You in danger, gurl!
Lube up, yell out that you have, and get into position. It'll be easier that way.
You still alive OP?
It's your Craig's list date, silly. You told him you wanted to play "scary thug breaks in and frightens the damsel in distress."
You're ruining the first date. You won't get a second one.
OP: It's Chris Hansen of MSNBC's "To Catch a Predator."
He's become the predator.
Don't worry, it's just me.
I'm posting from inside your house!
This reminds me of the song "Something in My House" by Dead or Alive.
About 20 years ago at 2am, I heard someone banging at my door. Being a naïve dork, I opened the door. Two sheriff deputies came into my house and proceeded to search it. I don't know why but at the time, one trusted the police. The even used my phone to call headquarters and clear up the mistake.
Now, I'd probably call 911 before I'd let anyone in my house.
I see dead people.
I just was wonderin if I could borrah a cuppa sugga.
I smell your mussy under the door!
Bathe that hairless body, you pink motherfucker!
Oh poor Val. And so it begins...
This would make a wonderful Law and Order SUV beginning....op could be found dead and then we'd all be interviewed by a hot cop as to what we know!
Officer, she's blonde, crazy and ancient. And she's a TV actress. I've locked up my Oscars.
Burp. Come to bed r28 hon. Burp.
Auditory hallucinations. Have you taken any new medication recently, OP?
Also, in the slim chance that you really heard the knock and the subsequent "soft ticking' sounds, have you checked the house?
Our house has such terrible insulation that you can actually hear the neighbor opening her garage door. It sounds as though someone is in the house, slamming a door. Have you ruled out the possibility of traveling sound?
Opie are you okay? Are you okay, Opie? Opie, are you okay, can you tell us that you're okay..
The tracks he saw while on his way
To andys house and back that night were mine
r21 Thanks a lot. Now I have that song that I haven't heard or thought about in 28 years in my head. I had never seen that video. Who knew she was blind? And since she is, how does she know he has blue eyes and blue jeans?
[quote]You're home alone and sleeping with the bedroom door closed?
Don't knock it - I always sleep with the bedroom door closed (and locked), and it saved my life once when a burglar broke into my house while I was sleeping.
I'm here for you OP. Just knock 3 times on the ceiling if you want me.
'Tis some visitor tapping at your chamber door. Only this and nothing more.
If you see a girl wearing a creepy doll mask, run.
Have we heard back from op yet? Or should I turn on my tv and wait for the news?
Stop reading the Golden State Killer thread at night, OP.
[quote] Don't knock it -
By moving into the bedroom you redistributed all the weight in the house. There's bound to be some knocking as the floor in the living room undergoes an isostatic rebound.
You better take care if I find you been creepin round my backstair
It's a ghost. Mine waits till I'm almost asleep,then knocks on the wall.
Someones knockin at the door
Somebodys ringin the bell
Someones knockin at the door
Somebodys ringin the bell
Do me a favor,
Open the door and let em in
Sir Paul McCartney
It could have been either your Telephone Man or Peter the Meter Reader.
Feel it coming
It's knocking at the door
You know it's no good running
It's not against the law
The point of no return
And now you know the score
And now you're learning
What's knockin' at your back door
Don't fear the Reaper
Blue Oyster Cult, 1976
Can I have your stuff that the intruder doesn't take?
R56 LOL! You're that crafty shark!!!!
If OP's next of kin or the police happen to stumble across this thread, please note that I was the first one to ask for his stuff.
I'm gonna second the auditory hallucination. Check out Oliver Sacks' new book "Hallucinations."
"There is something in my house, my house. Its just the ghost of a long, long dead affair"
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
