I go to school in Austin. My parents live in Houston. I went to a party in Houston, and didn't tell my parents I was going to be here, so I had to break in to their apartment. Good thing I left my window unlocked. But I had to remove the mesh and climb in, behind my desk and go under it. If that doesn't prove my ninja skillz, I don't know what does. That is all.

jumped over fence, told Max (recently deceased dog) to shuttdup, scraped through about 5 rose bushes, and inadvertanly broke TV (water sitting on windowsill by TV = not good) to pass out inh own bed.

course this was almost 5 years ago and my family still reminds me of it

The fact that you only got in because the window was unlocked isn't such a great advertisement of your ninja skills, is it? :p

I once locked myself out of my house. I foolishly installed a lock on the inside garage door which also had a auto-closing hinge on it. My time was numbered and eventually it caught up with me.

I then tried opening the door anyway and knew that the frame wasn't tight with the door so I nudged it = cop-busting-door-opening nudge. Which worked, door opened up. Unfortunately those same cop-door-busting-skills were in vain, as the frame was cracked. Making me wish I had just called a locksmith instead of being a dumbass.

It was cracked like that for some time (operable but, crack in the inner door frame). I later fixed that, silicon and paint work wonders.


I hid a key in the garage in case I was ever so foolish again.

I've been locked out of my parents' house while I still lived there before... many times I had to sit outside and wait. The place is locked down like a fortress when nobody's home. :|

Only way in is to crack some windows in the front... and that'd be suspect to anyone passing by on the semi-busy street it's located on.

Use a credit card, they can get you into most houses, as long as a deadbolt is not used.

I remember being locked out of my parent's house in grade school. I took a a long thin file from the garage (which isn't attached to the house) and a screwdriver. I used the file to slide the latch open on one of our side windows, then the screw driver to pry the window open. Once inside, I credit carded open the other door and then ran to disarm the alarm system (which was going nuts).

That was sweet.

most new houses as long as the deadbolt isn't locked, a credit card works in about 3-5 seconds. Used that method at least a dozen times in the house I sold this year.

I used to be able to get into my house through a firewood chute into the basement when I was a kid. I thought it was pretty slick until my dad died and we lived there alone. I nailed it shut with a 2x4 a soon as I thought of it.

Maybe think about the ways you get into your parent's house or your own and consider taking care of it just in case someone else would stumble onto it.
