I was in my bed trying to get some sleep, when I heard banging noises outside my window. I asked my father, "Do garbage men come at night?". "No," he replied, "It's probably just some teenagers." He went down stairs and turned on the porch lights. After awhile, the noises stopped and I went to sleep. I never found out what it was making those noises, but whatever it was never came back.
This is based on a true story, one that happened to me when I was young.
