If only everything were this easy. A Florida woman woke up to find a creepy masked man peering in her bedroom window. She did what any of us would do; she reached for the gun on her nightstand and yelled, “I got a gun! I got a gun,” according to the Sun-Sentinel. Upon hearing this, the creeper promptly turned and ran.

The joke’s on the him because the gun was fake. It actually belongs to the woman’s son; she told the Sun-Sentinel she keeps it by her bed to scare away potential intruders. So far, her plan seems to be working, but she says she’s now considering an alarm system.

The would-be intruder was later tracked down by police dogs hiding in the nearby woods, arrested and charged with burglary.
