I don't have stairs here, damn, now I'm thinking about my old place in Argentina where I had stairs...

I would phone the police and then I would see them downstairs

And hide behind the door with something you can whack em with if they come into the room with the phone.

I'd pretend I was a burglar as well.

Tell him to go upstairs for some 'great stuff'.

Walk out, lock the door behind me. Phone the police with him trapped in my house.

I do and I always have my mobile in my room anyway.

If I didnt have a phone. I would sneak down the stairs and out of the front door and get a neighbour to ring the police. Carrying something big and heavy just incase.

If they were in the front room I'd use the radio transmitted remote controll to turn that rooms telly on and scare em

Burglars are almost always cowards - 2 of them ran away from my husband when he was asleep and they must have noticed his wheelchair at the bottom of the stairs :rolleyes: (of course he assumed they were just his mate from across the street playing a practical joke hehehe)

Point my .357 at his head and tell him to lie face down on the floor, legs and arms outstreched. Then call the police, and wait for their arrival while I have him at gunpoint.

Hopefully, it wouldn't need to get any more unpleasant than that.
