You know you live in a decent part of town when...
... you go to work after staying up way to late on the computer. You have odd dreams about a couple of strange guys sleeping in your spare bedroom; then you get up and pseudosleepwalk until you check the spareroom, then don't sleeping well and get only about 3 hours of interrupted sleep, and come home 10 hours later to find that...

1) your front door (which is easily visibly from the street) is wide open

2) the screen door is closed, but not locked

3) there is a huge basket of flowers on the porch (for your anniversary) right by the open, unlocked door.

4) the delivery person (or anyone) could easily look in and see that there is a big screen HD TV with a full entertainment system, over 100 DVD's, 2 computers...

... and nothing is (seems to be) missing.

I've come home before, and found the kitchen door blown open (with the screen door latched), and no one came in. And once woke up to find the downstairs door wide open, with no screen or anything, but the cats aren't allowed down there.

And nothing was ever missing.

Damn, I'm never selling this house.

One night when my husband was out of town, I slept with the big garage door wide open, the door into the laundry room open, and the door from the laundry room into the house open (we generally DO keep these last two open for the cat to use the litter box). Plus it was in the middle of winter! I'm normally not a get-freaked girl, but the next morning - I about shit my pants. Alot of "what if's" were going through my head.
I'm glad that your house and it's contents were all safe and sound!
