No seriously I mean it.

I made a 999 call at 4:20am (UK time) this morning and had to wait till 8:30 before the police arrived.

So I spent the time waiting in this corner of cyberspace staying awake, reading the comments and trying to keep out of my mind what was happening.
I had a false start getting to sleep last night and as per my neuro guy's suggestion got out of bed and sat shining my Tele body.

About 4am I heard a noise and thought it was my son, went downstairs and there was nothing. About 10 minutes later I heard a car pass and a loud house shaking thump, went back downstairs, saw nothing but heard what I thought was one of our native vampire moths behind the dining room blinds. Lifted the blind to see the laminate glass in the window caving in.

I thought at first it was a stone thrown up by the passing car but soon realised that couldn't possibly be the case. I got the trousers and shoes on lifted my torch and wood chopper to go outside and investigate. A large rock had been thrown at the window. After about 5 minutes I decided to go back indoors and phone the police. On my way back in I heard a car tearing down the road in our direction, so I hid round the corner to see what would happen.

The car stopped right in front of the broken window and I emerged with torch and implement. As the car pulled away, a youngish lad pointed at me out the car's open window and said to me "You're (blank) dead!". I got the car's plate went straight indoors phoned the cops and woke my son. Thankfully Mrs K stays at my daughter's on Saturdays.
Whoever has targeted me also slashed my son's four tyres meaning he loses his shift today.

Other than sacking the window cleaner on Wednesday I've definitely not pissed anyone else off. I've left the front gate 10 times since my truck got damaged and 5 of those were neuro appointments. I have my suspicions the window guys had something to do with damaging my truck in early June. I could be wrong
Either way this is a targeted attack on me,

No that my limited adrenals are calming down, the full aftershock due to my adrenal insufficiency is kicking in. The police have left and I'm now waiting on the cocktail of vallium, sleeping pills, anti depressants and my adrenal steroids to kick in and knock me out for a few hours.

A big thanks to you all here, you've helped me get through the night with your stories, quirky comments and humour. This site felt like a really safe place.

However, now it's sleep time and when I get up this afternoon I'll be helping my son getting 4 new low profile tyres, phoning the glazier and most importantly getting organised for my 30 years wedding anniversary tomorrow.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better and Mrs K draws me a kind look (or more).

Thanks again lads, sometimes you're helping by just being you.

It could have been Nick Lowe?.. he loves the sound of breaking glass...

but that could have been a rumour old Graham Parker started. ;)

Crikey, I'm glad you didn't have to confront those blokes on your own, better to get the cops involved.

I hope they were using their own car and the plate# does them in..;)

That is a terrible, traumatic experience to go through. I hope you can get this situation sorted out - no one should have to live with the threat of physical (or emotional) violence hanging over them like that

Some Jackholes can't leave others live in peace. Too bad you couldn't have answered their "knock at the window" with something more than a hatchet. Hope the cops get the punks that did this.

As long as the situation didn't ruin Kilmarnock x Celtic for you!

(sry. best wishes for justice to be done - and with a karma-flavored cherry on top)

I’m am sorry and disturbed to hear of this happening to you. I know that if it had happened to me I would be out of my mind right now.

Why did it take 4 hours for the police to arrive??

No idea why it took them 4 hours. It's possible because we're remote rural the local officers maybe have been redeployed. That said they were a bit lukewarm back in June when I alerted them that I had my house stalked a week after my truck got damaged. A very low crime rate here, so it puzzles me why they're so laxed.

The truck is still down in England waiting on me travelling down to pick it up, I was planning on the end of the month and a road trip, health permitting but now I'll be Fort Knoxing this place first.

I'm sure it's all connected and I'm being targeted, which ain't good for the mental health and disability.

wouldn't it be fun if they got the wrong house, like in the big lebowski. It was probably some guy high on something. I hope you are doing better.

edit fun isnot the right word.

Hope things work out.
Sounds like someone may have taken a disliking to your son, young boys who knows why. Or something to to with your daughters admirers?
Hope they get a visit from the bobbies

Not long ago some little git egged my place because my wife told him to put his dog on a lead.
Revenge is best served cold.
