The Town Jester

My boyfriend had to move out off our apartment because he started a new job four hours away, so I stayed there alone for my last semester at school. I didn't think it was going to be a big deal at all until my sketchy alcoholic neighbor on the first floor caught wind of me being alone.

He then started following me in and out of the building, constantly knocking on my door to talk, asking me out, etc. I would sit out on these shared porches to relax and he would corner me out there, so I didn't sit on my porch anymore.

He eventually started following me to class or to bars when I walked downtown. And would start pounding on my door at midnight screaming at me about going out with friends. He would constantly lurk in the hallway that faced my bedroom and "sing" to me.

One night he came up and yelled at me in front of a friend of mine, and went to grab me by my throat and my friend called the police. They didn't do anything because my neighbor was the "town drunk/jester/would never hurt anyone/etc" bullshit. My landlord wasn't even available to talk until a month after it got bad.

Rude Awakening

I had work in the morning so I set an alarm for 6am. I place my phone on the nightstand, shut off the light and wrap myself up in a cocoon of blankets. I dose off and my phone starts going off. I knew there was no way it was already time to get up for work so I reach my hand toward my phone on the nightstand to turn off my alarm. As im reaching over, I feel my fingers run through something that feels like hair. My heart was beating so hard I thought it was going to come out of my chest. I jumped out of bed so quick and bolted toward my light. Flipped it on and there was nothing in my room. I figured I must have imagined it. I walk over to my phone to shut it off and as I look down at my phone, there is two strands of dark hair intertwined in my fingers. I've never been so fucking scared in my life. I still don't know who or what was 2 inches from my face that night.

Mystery Renter

My mom owns a bunch of rental properties. Her first ever rental was to a nice Puerto Rican man who was looking to move into town. Mom and I are setting up the paper work and the apartment for him. A week goes by where we haven't heard from him. Then he suddenly starts contacting us about the apartment but never wanted to meet up. He asks us to stop by one day to check things out (which was really odd). Turns someone had broken into the place. Mom makes me stay in the car and goes inside to check it out. It was mid-day when we got there so she felt safe enough to go inside.

A few days later she sees our renters face on the news. He was shot and killed 2-3 weeks prior and was accused of being a drug trafficker. The guy contacting my mom over the last week about the apartment, who would not meet up with us but wanted us to go check the place out, was not the renter.

Wrong Door

My dog woke me up at about 3AM, and I realized someone was trying to open the front door of my apartment. Scared the shit out of me. I looked in the peephole and there was a guy trying to open the door with a key but failing. So I yelled "Dude, what the fuck are you doing?"

If you think I was scared when I woke up in the middle of the night and someone was trying to get into my apartment, that paled in comparison to how freaked out this drunk guy was when he heard a voice yelling at him from inside what he thought was his apartment. He fell on his ass
