Help me figure this out...

Recommended Posts

How bizarre. At least you go to the bottom of it. We live in a very rural community that is very old fashioned and I still keeps our doors locked.

 

Be safe!

That is so scary.

 

I almost always use the stay function on our alarm when I am home alone at night. It makes me feel so much safer.

OMG Jamie LYnn, that is NUTS! I hope they get the guy - how brazen! CHeck this out - about two weeks ago my best friend calls me to tell me that she was in one of jer bedrooms folding clothes, and her 2 kids were in the living room playing when this man breaks thru the bedroom window screen and walks into her apartment.

 

He said he was some army seargent and was responding to a domestic call. She calmly talks to this guy and lets him out her front door! Her husband is walking in as the guy was walking out and she tells hubby what happened, he goes out and follows the guy - by chance a sherriff was standing by for an eviction and he tells them the story and they go get the guy!

 

Come to find out this guy lived in the apt complex and had just came back from Iraq and has some serious mental problems. They found him with a back pack full of ID's and jewlery. They ended up catching him and sending him to the hospital on a mental hold and then ship him to North Carolina or somewhere to a mental hospital. The guy had a 3 month old baby at home and the previous week was outside when someone walked by him and said somethng to him and set him off. The guy chased the person around the apt complex. I guess he was a total nut.

 

I was so scared to think of the what if's. People are crazy - you just have to be careful!

This story makes me so sad. Poor man, he probably saw some crazy stuff over in Iraq.

You can never tell what is going to happen no matter where you live, so it is best to play it safe. I live in a small rural community that is safe for the most part, but I always lock the doors. There have been times that I haven't had the door locked and someone has just walked into our place thinking it is someone elses. As soon as they realize they are in the wrong place, they have left...so far! On Fri FI had the kids out in the van and I was just grabbing a few more things before heading to the city for the weekend, when a guy came and knocked on the door that was slightly ajar and then walked in. I came around the corner and he asked if so-and-so was here. I said he had the wrong place and he left apologizing.

 

There have also been a couple times that there have been drunks that stumble into our apt complex and get mixed up about who lives where and come knocking on our door. 7-11 is right behind our complex, and it is a popular stop after the bar for munchies, so it isn't uncommon for drunks to pass through around here. Nothing like getting a knock on the door at 3am from a drunk that will not leave because they know that so-and-so lives here and they need a place to crash. Um, no!!!

Okay, that would totally freak me out.

We are just waiting on land to be transferred over from FI family and we will build out in the country then. I can't wait.

 

And FI wonders why I always keep the door locked!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
