Who in this day and age leaves their door unlocked when they go to work? I'm not blaming her for this guys actions, but that was a really foolish thing to do.

I’ll bet she locks the door in the future.

She called the property management company? I would love to hear that conversation.

' immediately called the property management company'

What??? It's not like she came home, and her kitchen fan was broken. It's astounding this was her 'go to' in that situation.

Even as a man I would be quite startled if a strange dude was hiding under my bed.

When your property management charges you something weird and unnecessary every month like ライフサポート24, might as well take advantage of it. lol

Gazman,

Even in the countryside, I’ll never understand why someone wouldn’t just take the normal precaution of locking their front door or car.

It’s not like it’s in any way troublesome, it takes about two seconds to do.

we never lock our cars or house, pretty common in the countryside.

If ya don't lock your car in the countryside, bears or other animals can open it and ruin your car

Why did she call the property management, instead the police!?!?

This case is weirder from all points of view.

Strange so many people comment about not locking the door….we never lock our cars or house, pretty common in the countryside.

Strange that people boast about doing something as unwise as deliberately not locking their doors or car. It's not quite the flex they think it is.

My daughter had a "stalker" who left weird escalating gifts in her mail slot. The escalation was concerning. She went to the Tokyo police who said they couldn't do anything even though the building was secure and there were lobby and stairs cameras. I bought her an eye hole camera and she silently moved out of that place in 2 weeks.

These stalker types always seem to escalate things.

It's raining men and they are collecting under my bed!!!

So many of this woman's actions baffles me:

A) she comes home to an intruder hiding under her bed like something from a childhood boogeyman story...and she calls the property management company to sort it out???

B) who in this day and age doesn't lock their doors? Locking your door behind you shouldn't even be conscious thought; one just does it when leaving the house.

Don't blame the victim.

Leaving a door unlocked does not give the right to another to enter.

Eish, lock the door, that one is troublesome!

Should have pretended to be drunk and asleep on the bed

Where else are men meant to be but under beds…

She left the door open when she went to work (NOT SMART) seems she wanted someone to enter and wait for her when she returned from work....

She left the door open when she went to work 

Actually. She left it "unlocked". Not quite the same. I've done it on the odd occasion in a rush by accident. Not so much these days because we have Secom and it needs to be armed

Don't blame her. Stalking is not nice.
