Hey guys, OP here, really glad that this was my first FML to be published :) I guess I should fill in the plot holes here, yes the house was dark, she came through my porch door and through the dining room, which the creaking in the floor (as my dining room floor is known to be obnoxiously creaky) is what alerted me to think of an intruder. I was in my room on the second floor and there is a wall blocking my vision of the dining room once I get down, so when I got down I peeked the corner and just went at it at the human-ish form. Ended up fracturing one of her ribs, would have been worse if my boyfriend was home and he was the one doing the hitting. Family thinks I'm responsible because "I should have recognized it was my sister" but sorry if I hear someone breaking into my house I'm not going to sit down and have a nice chat and tea before deciding to do something. My family was in on it, and they're still trying to get me to pay, but I'm not budging on the fact that I was just trying to defend myself. Hope I explained it pretty well, thanks to everyone who helped get this published :)

Shit. If she broke into your house (or you thought she did), and you thought she was an intruder than you have the right to protect yourself. Maybe she should've thought it through on her part

"Let me prank them by pretending I'm either a thief or someone who could seriously hurt them! Nothing could possibly go wrong!" - OP's sister probably.

Sounds like strike one to me

Jokes are cool and all but your sister is asking for it there

"Let me prank them by pretending I'm either a thief or someone who could seriously hurt them! Nothing could possibly go wrong!" - OP's sister probably.

What kind of prank is that? At least you know you'd be ready to defend yourself :)

Shit she would have died braking into my place. Would have taken a 9mm to the chest instead of a bat. My family knows better than to break into someones house regardless of who it is lol

"Stop and I'll shoot!" "I'm braking, okay, I'm braking! *fires gun*

Didn't get this at first, then realized his mistake originally. Made me chuckle.

"It was just a prank, bro" -your sister

Well if that's the cost, I hope you hit your sister pretty intensely.

Why would you hope for that?

Is your family expecting you to just laugh at every intruder that's coming into your house, expecting it to be a prank Everytime? Definitely shouldn't be your responsibility for the medical bills

Most of us can only dream about taking a baseball bat to our immediate family. Thanks for this OP. You give the rest of us hope that dreams really do come true!

I'm glad to have inspired you haha just please don't take a bat to a sibling unless they try a stupid prank of breaking into your house

my brother hid I my closet with a puppet and I hit him with a baseball bat..... best time if my life.
