Classic Happens to me 5 times a day. It's just a YDI, because you should always look in your pockets =p.
I'm sorry, but i had to comment on this post. The translation for your God-awful post was: "This is YDI because you are a dumbass. you leave your door unlocked because you can't find a key? don't go outside them. idiot." second post: "why would you do that? don't go outside if you have no key. simple. YDI for being a dumbass." I know this is the internet and everything, but seriously? Come on now... You are the last person who should call someone an idiot and dumbass.
Why the hell would he leave a note saying to leave the door unlocked because even if your family did come home it would be likely they are there so you can just ring the dam door bell
I leave my door unlocked if I can't find my keys too, which isn't that often, figuring anyone bothering to check if my door is locked or not is just going to break in anyway, which is probably true enough, but now whoever you live with is going to see it as being your fault. >.< That sucks.
Given that, why lock your door at all? Home security is all about making your house the more annoying to break into than your neighbour, not about making your house impenetrable . Sure, a locked door might not deter a thief, but it might just be the push that makes your neighbour's house more attractive. Since we don't know the security on this house, nor on the rest of the neighbourhood, we can't really say one way or another whether locking the door would have helped at all, but my money is on "it would have helped".
I'm talking about the principles of home security, what are you talking about? Or do you really think that if every house on the block is locked a thief is going to just go home, tail between his legs? No, if he's willing to do the job, he's going to hit the place that has the highest potential reward for the lowest effort and risk. You can't make your house impenetrable, so the best you can do is reduce the payoff relative to the effort and risk and just hope he hits your neighbour instead. If your entire neighbourhood does this effectively enough, the thieves will avoid it and find another, easier neighbourhood. I don't care if you like it, but that's the truth of the matter.
I'm not saying there's in point in locking your door ever. This was a one off. I'm saying if someone has walked all the way up to your front door with the intention of robbing it, found no one is home, it's probably not going to make any difference if it's locked or not. They're not going to wander around the neighbourhood looking for the house with the weakest "barrier".
He deserved it you dont leave a note saying all the doors are unlocked on the front door because anyone would be able to see it Besides if the family did come home all he would have to do it ring the door bell or something
it's both. YDI because you should have checked pockets and stuff. but FYL. oh and the note was in the kitchen not on the door which means someone just tried to get in anyways, so it could have happened even if it was locked.
