In opposite to Matthew Seaman I don't think it's an escape code
problem here. Instead, it seems you're trying to execute your
home directory. :-)

The $ sign seems to imply you're using the Bourne Shell. The
same problem you described can be done using the C Shell:

	% ~
	/home/poly: Permission denied.

When I try this in BASH, I get this:

	$ ~
	bash: /home/poly: is a directory


	% cd ~

is what you indended to do?
