Unhappy Women and girls beware. Very serious!!!!

NEW FORM OF KIDNAPPING


Please take a minute to read this. This is very scary and could happen to any of us.. Seems like every nice thing people do for one another can be perverted. A new twist on kidnapping from a very smart survivor:


About a month ago there was a woman standing by the mall entrance passing out flyers to all the women going in. The woman had written the flyer herself to tell about an experience she had, so that she might warn other women. The previous day, this woman had finished shopping, went out to her car and discovered that she had a flat.


She got the jack out of the trunk and began to change the flat. A nice man dressed in a business suit and carrying a briefcase walked up to her and said, 'I noticed you're changing a flat tire.


Would you like me to take care of it for you?' The woman was Grateful for his offer and accepted his help.


They chatted amiably while the man changed the flat, and then put the flat tire and the jack in the trunk, shut it and dusted his hands off.


The woman thanked him profusely, and as she was about to get in her car, the man told her that he left his car around on the other side of the mall, and asked if she would mind giving him a lift to his car.


She was a little surprised and she asked him why his car was on other side.


He explained that he had seen an old friend in the mall that he hadn't seen for some time and they had a bite to eat, visited for a while, and he got turned around in the mall and left through the wrong exit, and now he was running late.. The woman hated to tell him 'no' because he had just rescued her from having to change her flat tire all by herself, but she felt uneasy . (Trust that gut feeling!)


Then she remembered seeing the man put his briefcase in her trunk before shutting it and before he asked her for a ride to his car.


She told him that she'd be happy to drive him around to his car, But she just remembered one last thing she needed to buy. (Smart woman!!)


She said she would only be a few minutes; he could sit down in her car and wait for her; she would be as quick as she could be. She hurried into the mall, and told a security guard what had happened, the guard came out to her car with her, but the man had left They opened the trunk, took out his locked briefcase and took it down to the police station.


The police opened it (ostensibly to look for ID so they could return it to the man). What they found was rope, duct tape, and knives. When the police checked her 'flat' tire, there was nothing wrong with it; the air had simply been let out. It was obvious what the man's intention was, and obvious that he had carefully thought it out in advance. The woman was blessed to have escaped harm. (Amen.thank you, God!)


How much worse it would have been if she had children with her and had them wait in the car while the man fixed the tire, or if she had a baby strapped into a car seat? Or if she'd gone against her judgment and given him a lift?


I'd like you to forward this to all the women you know. It may save a life.


A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle. I was going to send this to the ladies only; but guys, if you love your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc., you may want to pass it on to them, as well.


Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that The world we live in has a lot of crazies in it. Better to be safe than sorry.

Oh my gosh. Thank you. I'd have never thought twice about letting him change my tire or giving him a ride. I can't even change my own tire... -.-

I will definitely forward that to the women I know.

That freaks me out...I am worried that my 'gut feeling' would not kick in during these moments! I tend to be too nice. Luckily I am taking a self defense class for women and learning about all these situations, I highly recommend it to anybody who feels unprepared for a situation such as this.

^^ Couldn't agree more roro. I have taken several self defense classes/karate-go ju ru classes and avidly recommend them for all women, children, and men.

Wow, these situations make me feel glad I'm not old enough to have my license! But I will definately be forwarding this because I would never want anyone to go through that.
I want to take self-defence classes but there is none in my area. I guess if I ever got into that situation I'd just kick in the balls and run.

Hey, if all else fails, that will certainly work. Another good one is to slap them in the ear (that can rupture an ear drum) and there is a big nerve that runs down the side of your neck; if you hit that really hard, it will cause them to rag-doll for a couple of minutes.

I'll try and remember that if I ever get into a fight. Good thing I always keep a small aerosol in my bag, I could always spray them with that.

I am glad you are on our side. LOL.
I figured someone would have said, " A swift kick in the kahonas."

I wonder if the kick in the kahonas (which will always be painful) is over recommended. If the predator know that is the prmary to only defence a person has. They can block that kick, turning their hips if nothing else or wearing a cup. And then the possible victim will be off balance and at a strong disadvantage, never assume the predator is not planning for something like that. I think a person needs one that one trick to deal with problems like that.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
