    It's about 12:30a.m. local for me, and about 30 minutes ago some random lady drove up our driveway and was sort of wandering around our house. She didn't come up and ring the doorbell, but luckily I noticed her drive up and alerted everyone in the house. We went to the door and apparently scared her pretty good. She kinda made up a story about looking for relatives and couldn't even remember their names (who can't remember their own relative's names). So now my dad and I are all wound up and are just sitting up keeping guard. Very strange occurrence....

    Could also be suffering from dementia or something.

    Board up the doors and hunker down with a couple of M16's. You'll be alright. Got a week's worth of food?

    My thoughts as well. If she's an elderly lady, maybe she has Alzheimer's.
    I'd like to know this as well. The older, the more likely she's suffering from the aforementioned problems.

    Two guys walked up our driveway and started to pull down their pants too pee in our flower bed (I hope). I opened the door which scared them off. The only disturbing part of all this was that it took place on Christmas morning. I hope your situation is as harmless as mine was.

    Haha, I'd say she was in her 40s or 50s or so (to whoever asked that), but I'm not the best on gauging age. I too would like to think she was just drunk or demented or something. We're mainly scared by the fact that we live off away from anybody (not in a neighborhood) and she very well could have dropped somebody off if she (they?) actually was up to no good, so my dad and I are sitting up watching TV and he's got his handgun on the armrest of his chair haha, so we're not too far from the hunkering down with M16s.

    And yes, all of our doors are locked.

    ^^^Well now that you explain it that way, I would be concerned too. Have you tried calling the sheriff?

    Well it actually generally is one of the better areas around here. First time anything remotely like this has happened in almost 10 years of living here.

    I keep telling my dad we ought to report it to the police but he just refuses to see the point in it.

    We get frat boys pissing on our front yard (no specific reason, we are the last house on a dead end). Not that I've never done that but its still annoying as ****.

    Thank Ronald Reagan for shutting down all the mental hospitals. Shame on you for not calling the local hospital. This woman probably has serious problems. Think outside your own world for one second maybe.

    My friends had a middle-aged lady wander into their house while 4 kids were the only ones home. ...Just knocked on the door and decided to pop in for a minute to explore when no one answered. ...The Panic alarm scared her off.

    Looking back on it, I assume she was meeting up with her friends and got the wrong house.

    Hehe, reminds me of one time, when I was in Barcelona at my uncle's. I had parked the car in the garage under the building, and took the direct lift from there to the apartment. When I arrived at my floor, and tried to insert the key in the keyhole, it wouldn't work... I noticed the door was open, so I pushed it, and I found myself in front of two beautiful russian (or it sounded like russian) ladies who were wondering who I was and why I was trying to get in their apartment. Turned out I just happened to get the wrong lift, and ended up in another (identical) staircase... Too bad they weren't naked... :eek:

    It could be many things, my bet is, either she had a mental condition, or she had been given bad indications to get to a friend's house.

    *cackle* ...and have blood seeping out of mouth and maybe the odd windpipe caught in her teeth =)

    OK back to seriousness (is that even a word?) 40's kinda unheard of the have dementia then but not so in the 50's sadly. To me that is too young to have that but it happens. I'd prob say she was drunk though. Prob thought it was her house until you came out and startled her. Hmm, I didn't leave my flowers there and I could of sworn my door was red, hmm! :p

    You could easily take her down.

    Yeah, or just scoping out the property to see how secure it is.

    In that case, I'd rather have the cops around.
