Someone is out there right now and I don't recognize them and I am in my pjs And I simply hid in the back of the house and let the dogs bark at them. My hopes being that with having the two outside dogs and Macy in here that they wouldn't even try to come to the door to knock. I did peak out the window and I could hear one of them telling my outside dogs to shut up. They were in hunting clothes and I have never seen them before to my knowledge. I thought it was kind of rude him telling my dogs to shut up they didn't listen of course.
My big girls stood at the gate growling and barking at him. They knew they have to protect the house. So anyway what I am asking is am I crazy for refusing to go out there if I am alone if I don't know who it is. I live miles from any help if they weren't safe people. And about two miles from my neighbor and they would never hear me scream if someone did try something.
That's not crazy at all! I do the exact same thing. If I don't know someone- there's NO WAY i'm answering the door for them or letting them know i'm in the house. I peak out of the peep hole very quietly and let Fosters bark. Then I go get my shot gun just in case- call me paranoid, but i'm really not- i'm just protecting myself from strangers. Also, Colin is a cop- and I worry that someone may have arrested could someday have an agenda so to speak against him and would try something when he's not home. It's happened on more than one occassion to two cop families one city over from ours- so i'm really careful about things. I don't answer the door for anyone I don't know at Colin's house or at my house. It's just not safe. I also make ALL repair men show their work id before the entire my house....and if they did not have an appointment, I don't let them in the house if they just show up out of the blue.I don't answer my door to people I don't know. I also do not answer the door when someone drops off a package (fed ex, ups, things like that)...I wait until they leave to open the door and get it. I'm not paranoid- just cautiously. I can definitely defend myself if need be now. I've taken several self defense classes and I am well trained in gun safety and defense- if anyone tries anything now, they'll be meet with the barrel of my 12 gauge
