It never hurts to receive such safety tips....


Please take the time to read this. I know you are smart enough to
know these pointers but there will be some, where you will go "hmm I must
remember that".

After reading, forward it to someone you care about, never hurts to
be careful in this crazy world we live in.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your
body. If you are close enough to use it, do!

2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans: if a robber
asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from
you....Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse
than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER
DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the
back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.


The driver won't see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,
eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a
list, etc.). DON'T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is
the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a
gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR
CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or
parking garage:
a. Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the
passenger side floor, and in the back seat.


b. If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from
the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling
them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their
cars.


c. Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your
vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest
your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a
guard/policeman to walk you back out.



IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs.(Stairwells are
horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control,
ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100
times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It
may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a
good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of
unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked "for help"
into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next
victim.

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 onto 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 and it's better safe than
sorry.

And send it to the men too. They can pass it on to MORE women!!

True, ALWAYS be on the look out for the predator! He can turn invisible AND has a mounted shoulder cannon with triple-beam infrared sighting. It took absolutely everything that Arnold Schwarzenegger could muster in order to beat him, and even then the predator nearly got revenge by blowing himself up with a built-in nuclear f**king bomb! If the predator can take out an entire platoon of US marines, a little lady sitting in a car is gonna be mincemeat. Even an SUV will provide little protection, so be on guard...

no, don't bother running. If the predator has a lock on you, you're f**ked...

To add to the list:


When leaving a mall or any store, and going to your car, GET YOUR KEY READY, or unlock trigger and usually, these keyless entry triggers have an 'alert' button, have it to where you can hit it as you get to your car. Remember this!

Also, as you're walking out, look around you, and keep your eyes open to 'what ifs' and have strategies ready.

It's sad to actually have to read this, because that's just the kind of world we live in.

Jeez, I have never given any thoughts to any of the above. However, I never sit in the car conemplating my purchases. I usually drive along immediately since I find is so annoying when others do it. On the other hand I rarely shop alone.

Just a thought, wouldn't being alone with a perpetrator in an elevator be worse than in the stairwell?

not really, because the elevator moves between floors. once your trap in the stairwell you can be in trouble.. and there is usually camera's in the elevator
