Oscar's story of what happened doesn't make sense

26 February 2013, 12:00
The more I think of it, the more Oscar's story doesn't make sense to me.

You are on the balcony, you hear a noise in the bathroom fair and fine. But then you make your way towards the bathroom in the dark. How can you be so confident that the intruder is not going to come out and bump into you along the way?

Moreover when you are walking on stumps, how can you be so confident the intruder won't rush you? Naturally you are expected to take steps to avoid being rushed. Going towards the intruder whom you cannot see is not the most logical step. The fact that you walk all the way from the balcony to the toilet door without fear of being rushed, strongly suggests that you know that there is no dangerous intruder in the bathroom.

You have walked all the way from the balcony without considering all these vulnerabilities. How come it is only when you are at the toilet door, and now have the intruder cornered, that you suddenly feel such a rush of vulnerability that your open fire and pump four bullets into the toilet?

If you really believe there is an intruder in the house, how can you be so sure there is only one intruder. Why are you not afraid that he might have a companion who could creep up on you from behind?

Secondly, where on earth are you going to find a burglar who breaks into a house to go to the toilet? What are they going to steal in the toilet? The toilet brush and tissue paper rolls? Why expect an intruder to barricade themselves in the toilet? You are not alone. Wouldn't it be more natural to expect the other person in the room to be in the toilet?

Any intruder would most likely have been in the living room disconnecting the TV, or standing right beside your bed pointing a gun at you, ready to subdue you when you wake up.

And the biggest question of all, why not check on your girlfriend's whereabouts? You walk three times past the bed where she is supposed to be sleeping, and it never for moment occurs on you to check if she is okay?

I can't stop thinking about Oscar's story. The more I think about the more Swiss cheese looks decidedly less porous than the story.
