Being left home alone to fend for onesself against a couple of incompetent burglars might seem like fun and games if you're a character played by Macaulay Culkin in a classic Christmas film. But in reality, being home alone can be a pretty terrifying experience for kids, and quite a few adults. If you weren't already afraid of being home alone, you might be by the end of this post.
After reading these, you may never stay alone in a house again without at least 5 other people and a german shepard.
1.) From SciFi_Pie:
When I was like 9 my parents were both at work one day and I was chilling at home by myself when the intercom rang (we lived in an apartment block). It was some lady asking if I've ordered a pizza. I calmly told her that I didn't. Then she said, "Oh... Well, do you want a free pizza? Just let me in and I'll give it to you".
9 year old me was f*cking terrified by this. Not because I found the idea of free pizza particularly scary, but because my dad used to tell me really drastic cautionary tales for why I shouldn't open the door to strangers (and other stuff). So I was genuinely convinced that the woman wanted to come in so she could murder me.
