*hugs*

I'm so sorry. Is there a place that carries door chains open this late, like Walmart or something? That way nobody could just unlock the door and walk right in, it might help a little having that bit of a buffer right now.

Omg that is so scary. I wouldn't be able to sleep at night, but I'm just beyond a paranoid person in general with things like this. Make sure your gun is easy access just in case. Not sure if you keep it loaded or not. Keep us updated and please stay safe.

Holy crap, how scary! I've been farting around wanting to check out a gun shop here in town. Maybe now is a good time. Ugh! People who make victims of others incense me to no end. A few years ago, my mom was mugged by some little *#%^ in her driveway who wanted her purse. He knocked her out cold and caused a seizure, fracturing her skull and making her lose her sense of smell permanently. She died a few weeks ago, and there will always be a suspicion that her incident had something to do with it. Grrrr!!!! It makes me want to go vigilante on people.

I'm so sorry this happened to you.

I agree with changing the locks. I would also buy some window locks from Home Depot (or other hardware store). These locks fit right above where the window would raise up, and it prevents them from being raised (I put these in after someone tried breaking into my home while in college. I did keep a hammer in each room in the event of a fire....this way I could easily break a window.)

Also, we have a local police supply that sells these giant door stop things. It's got a rubber "foot" end and an end with a rubber forked design. You wedge the forked end under the doorknob, and then slide the lower "foot" end as far back towards the door as possible. These prevents your doors being opened (I had one when someone tried to kick my back door in during the same aforementioned attempted break-in. They actually cracked the door, but it didn't budge. I credit that doorstop for saving me!). Mod y'all have a place up there that carries supplies like that?

I would hope your landlord would change the locks immediately.

I agree with Miakoda about buying the door jam lock. You can get it at KMart, usually Home Depot, Lowe',s ACE Hardware, etc. Here's a pic of it:

I'm with Skittle, how scary! If you have a gun, honestly I'd keep it within reach, and loaded. (There's a reason we have loaded guns in the house.... the dogs aren't the only home protection measures we have in place!)

Thanks guys. I will definitely look into all of that. The landlord told us we could just have the locks changed and send him a key so I'll call the place he recommended today.
