I saw this on another site and there were some very fun answers.

What is considered normal at 3pm, but terrifying at 3am? 

For example: The sounds of the ice cream truck

    Nooo, i can't look out into the dark either. My fear comes from someone tapping at my bedroom window at night when i was a teenager, terrified me for life. 

    When i go to bed i have to check that there's no gaps in the curtains too. I put my washing basket on the one side of the curtain (nearest my bed) so it pushes it against the wall. :D

    Oh lordy, I had something similar to this.  Well, it wasn't a human, it was a fox (with a very bloody face) slamming into the glass door at full pelt. I was knelt down next to the door.  :s

    I'm the opposite, I don't like being closed in. So I don't have nets, curtains or blinds.

    Neighbours or passersby talking with loud voices.

    That's my worst nightmare. My best friend of 25 years doesn't close her curtains either usually, unless i visit and then she closes them. :D
