5. A Hilarious Scene
One night, my aunt (who was in her late teens/early 20s at the time) was awoken by strange sounds coming from downstairs. It was far too late for anyone to be wandering around the house, so she grabbed a baseball bat and walked into the hall.
She checked my uncle’s bedroom door. Closed. She checked my mom’s bedroom door. Closed. Grandma wasn’t home, as she worked nights. Aunt decides to investigate on her own.
She peeks downstairs and can see someone trying to enter through the kitchen window, clad in black. She can’t see their face, but she doesn’t take chances. She quietly sneaks back upstairs, grabs the telephone and calls 911.
She actually worked at the police dispatch center, so she actually knew the person who picked up on the 911 line. She tells this person to send cops right away, that someone was breaking in. Within only a couple minutes, a couple police cars pull up to the house and cops head towards the kitchen, both inside and outside, guns drawn.
It seems that the burglar was stuck in the window. The police grabbed him by the legs and pulled him out and had him pinned to the ground. Aunt comes running up to see who the burglar was.
It was my uncle. He snuck out in the middle of the night to go and get drunk with his friends (he was underage), forgot to bring the key and locked himself out, and was so shitfaced (and fat) that he couldn’t manage to push himself through the kitchen window.
