You could call the police, but they might not get there in time. You could confront the person yourself, but you might not be able to make them leave. You could wait for them to leave on their own, but that can take hours, and they might just come back later.
You have a flashlight plugged into my front doorbell. When you see someone sitting in a car outside my house late at night, you go outside and shine the light on them. Then you yell at them through the window of their car until they drive away.
This has a few advantages over other options: it doesn’t require any interaction between myself and the person it keeps me safe from being attacked by some angry stranger, and it gets rid of any potential danger quickly without creating more problems for myself or anyone else.
What does this person want?
The person sitting in the car outside my house is someone who has been there for more than an hour. They have been sitting in their car, watching my house, and they are not leaving. You are not sure if they are waiting for me to come out of my house or if they plan on staying there.
What do you need?
Take a deep breath before walking in the door. You’re going to be stressed out and angry when you get home, so give yourself a moment before opening the front door to calm down and remind yourself that these feelings are temporary.
Why the person there?
There’s a guy sitting in his car outside my house. You are not sure what he wants, but he just keeps staring at me through the window. You think it’s weird because you don’t know him and he doesn’t look like he’s trying to sell anything. He just seems to be watching me. You don’t know what to do with this guy.
How long have they been doing it?
You are concerned about the people who sit in their cars for hours outside my house. You are lived in this neighborhood for most of my life, and it’s always been a safe place to raise a family.
But recently, Just noticed that there are people who seem to be watching me. They’re parked right across the street from my house and they stay there all day long.
You are not sure how long they’ve been doing this, but it feels like forever. The first time You saw them sitting there was about three weeks ago. At first, You didn’t think anything of it but then one day when You come home from work, there were three new cars with different people sitting inside them.
They didn’t move for hours. And that wasn’t even the end of it: every day since then has been more of the same: people just sitting in cars across the street from my house all day long.
Why would someone be sitting in their car outside my house?
But when it comes to the person who parks in front of my house every day at about 5:30, I have a question. It’s not like I live in a gated community or anything, so there’s nothing that makes it a special destination for anyone who stops by my place. And if you’re waiting for someone, why wouldn’t you just go inside? Maybe there are some people who don’t like being indoors.
You get that everyone has different tastes in music, so maybe they want to listen to whatever they want without bothering anyone else. That makes sense! But if that’s the case. If someone wants music that loud enough to keep them from hearing themselves think.
it’s important to remember that the world is full of people who are not you. Some of those people will be trying to get into your house, but some of them will be just minding their business.
The world is a big place and there are plenty of people who don’t care about your house at all! So if anyone approaches you on the street, don’t assume they’re looking to break into your house.
