bang on your door and yell "Help me! Help me! HELP ME! I need in! He/she's going to kill me! Help me! Let me in!"

Would you let them in?


Why or why not?

I know my answer is with just a question but if that happened and in that moment I will be doing something else. So really I can't say if I would or wouldn't do. We all would do something different in the heat of the threat.

Nope. I grew up in the city. I know better. I'll call 911.

I'd have a better chance at fighting off a woman if that was the case but I would have no chance to fight off a man. If dh was home I would let him decide.


Quoting Anonymous:

Besides the obvious reasons what makes you trust a woman more than a man in this situation? You have no idea who or what is waiting for you on the other side of that door. Women are just as capable of committing crimes as men are.



Quoting nocalmegan:

If it were a women, yes. If it were some random man, no. I'd call the police either way tho. And let my dogs in to guard the door.

There was something going around a while ago where they played a recording of a baby crying to get women to open the door. It's scary that people would use others kindness against them.

No. I would call 911 but I wouldn't put my kids in danger. I might open the garage but still lock my doors and have my alarm on.

I'd get my gun first, and my DH if he's home -- which he's in bed right now, then yes I'd answer the door.  But male or female I'm getting the gun first.

See I started thinking about it right after replying and thought " Wow that sounds sostupid of me"! I am here alone some nights when SO works and I would never let someone in with just me and my twins while I am 19weeks pregnant! Not to mention SO would be mad I put myself and my boys in danger lol! This is why I keep telling him we need a gun and I know he wants one but he is a Marine vet and only wants an AR-15 which I have no clue how to use and it scares me!

I would and then I would immediately call the cops.

Just letting you know, I've heard that this is a scam and a way for people to get into your house, so I would NOT let him/her in, Just call the police.

I'd look out the window while calling 911 and then decide if I was going to let them in or not
