Today, it's my third night of finally living on my own in a house. I can't count the number of times I have run to my knife and pepper spray after hearing "suspicious" sounds. Maybe I'm not ready to be an adult after all. FML

OP is just paranoid. There are plenty of paranoid independent people out there

"Care to explain how one would go about growing up a little, #1? I'm sure there are plenty of impatient children who have been waiting to hear this."

Hell, I'm sure there are plenty of us "adults" that have been waiting to hear this...


You could also install some cobras in addition. No joke, I actually know a guy who kept a few cobras in fancy enclosures in his living room, and he ended up hearing two guys breaking into his house in the middle of the night. As he reached for his gun, he heard them start flipping out and cursing about the snakes, and ended up booking it right back through the window they came through.


#22 OP said that she's "not ready to be an adult" in my mind that means she thinks she's immature, hense telling her to grow up a little. I didn't mean to start a fight/offend anyone lol xxxxxxxx

You're not even quite 20 and you're living in a house all by yourself? No, you're not ready. Being 18 or older doesn't make you an adult. The mere fact that you clearly think that proves you're not ready.

Actually being 18 does make you technically an adult. She wanted to started acting like one and got her own place and was scared of burglars, how is that immature and meaning she should grow up? She just isn't used to being alone.

I have a dog that would bark at everything from a squirrel to the whistle of the wind. But the one time a man actually broke in as 19 year old me was home alone, the dog didn't make a peep.

In this case, I would recommend a big dog with that gun. The dog will let you know if there is a problem, and will buy you time in the gun is ever needed.
I recommend a glock and a german shepard. Will be the safest house on the block.

I approve of 16's post.
Except "Tank" is not always required. Sometimes its nice to call a dog by a much smaller dog name, so they jack-off doesn't know what is coming.
