There was a story in the news where a burglar was scared off by a 12 year old. What may have helped her case was the burglar rang the doorbell first, to which the girl didn't answer, and proceeded to scream after she heard a broken window.

This reminded me of a popular sketch by stand-up comedian Sebastian Maniscalco. He perfectly described how the times have changed when you hear the doorbell ringing.

Does New Jersey still answer when a stranger rings their doorbell?

To see the Sebastian Maniscalco skit, watch the video below. The video does contain explicit language. Viewer discretion is advised.
