Someone else's home is where you lay your head

If you're going to go out and get hammered and you don't have a designated driver, one way to do the responsible thing and avoid a DUI is to take public transportation home. Thing is, though, you want to make sure you actually, you know, make it back to your home:
Unlike Goldilocks, a man who stumbled into the wrong suburban Washington, D.C., home after drinking too much found the bed there just right.

Bob and Joanne Breiner returned home from a night out to find a man with a white beard nestled in their bed, sound asleep. Once police showed up and the drunken stranger realized what had happened, he apologized profusely and complimented the couple on their comfortable bed.

"I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry," Joanne Breiner recalled him saying.

The man accidentally went to the Breiners' house after apparently getting off at a bus stop eight miles from his own home, police said. He entered through the unlocked front door.
The cops came and woke the guy up without incident, the homeowners didn't press charges after finding out that he'd recently lost his job, and they even gave him some food. Awwwwww. Isn't that just the most heartwarming story about a drunken accidental burglary that you've ever heard?

Even so, I'm guessing the Breiners will be locking their doors from now on.
