Got away with it…
I remember getting up one morning and looking out of the window to see my bike sat outside the house, unlocked, where I’d meant to give it a clean after a night ride, then been distracted by the allure of a beer and warmth.
Good job its where I live now, and not where I used to live. In which case….

…so far. Managed to leave my garage door wide open for 4 hours today. In full view of the road. All the bikes still there & I am hoping that anyone who wanted to nick them would’ve done so already. The galling thing is that I got 200 yards down the road before wondering if I had shut it, but because I was late & have worried unecessarily in the past I didn’t go back. What an idiot! I suppose I’ll find out in a week or so if the contents have been duly noted by a toe rag. 🙁Posted 4 years agooldschoolMember
Reminds me of the time I got back from a weekend away, waked into the house and thought ‘bit chilly in here’Posted 4 years ago
Turns out I’d left the sliding patio door wide open since packing on Friday. Whole house left open and all the keys for the garage there for the taking……
Thank god I got away with it.BunnyhopSubscriber
we used to have an electric up and over door on the garage at our last house. one night it spookily went up all by itself. at the time all the contents including many bikes and gardening equipment were luckily left untouched.
have left the key in the front door a few times. we have a really nice milkman who keeps an eye out for things like that and posts them back through the door.Posted 4 years agoslowjoMember
I have done the leaving the front door open all weekend thing too.
At the time I lived next to some seriously fierce bikers – some of their frequent guests were in the Hells Angels I was reliably informed. Anyway, on returning home I was accosted by a couple of frightening looking characters enquiring as to my intentions regarding entering the house. Suffice to say I was not ‘allowed’ in until my neighbour had confirmed that I did indeed live there.
The comments of my ‘guards’ went along the lines of ‘you never know who is who nowadays, you get all sorts of riff raff if you aren’t careful!’Posted 4 years agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
Just tell the wife to pipe down, god – everyone’s so p___y whipped on this forum.
Although thankfully my wife isn’t a complete cow and wouldn’t have a go at me in the first place 😉
Pretty much like when I injured myself pissed up and have had to have a load of time off work, cancel a family holiday and sell the caravan. Told off? Nope – very sympathetic and supportive.
Get a better wife OP 😉Posted 4 years agoThrustyjustMember
Both our garage doors are electric and I always look out the front window to see I haven’t hit the button when putting them away. Only this week, I forgot to lock the conservatory and left the doors open. Came home lunchtime to let the dog out and was thinking how lucky I was. Neighbour was burgled last year, which made me always think about double checking every door and window. So lapse of memory can happen.Posted 4 years agojag61Member

I once went off to work on nights leaving my garage door open. At 5.30 in the morning my wife was woken by the neighbour banging at the door saying that he thought the garage had been screwed. Nothing had been touched but the mrs, not really knowing what bikes I had at the time just closed the door and sent me a text to say I had better get home to check, before going back to bed.
That was a sickening ride home.Posted 4 years ago
