Simple Tips to Save Yourself

14 Mar

We know they’re out there:  the crazy, the deranged, the desperate, the drug addicted.  May the Goddess protect you and yours that you never meet one intent upon doing you harm, but if you should, one of these tips may save your life.

  • The elbow is the strongest point on your body.  If you are close enough to use it, do!
  • If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO THEM.  Toss it away from you and RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION.  Chances are they are more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and will go for the wallet/purse.
  • If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights, stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.  The driver won’t see you, but everybody else will.
  • Do not get into your car after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit there (doing your checkbook, making a list, etc.).  Predators watch for people doing this because it’s a perfect opportunity for them 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.  If someone is in the car with a gun to your head, DO NOT DRIVE OFF.  Repeat:  DO NOT DRIVE OFF!  Instead, gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car.  Your air bag will save you.  If the person is in the back seat, they will get the worst of it.  As soon as the car crashes, bail out and run.  It is better than having them find your body in some remote location.
  • A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot or parking garage:  (1) Be aware:  Look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat.  (2) 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 victims are attempting to get into their cars.  (3) 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 building and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY (and better paranoid than dead).
  • ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!
  • 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, preferably in a zig-zag pattern!
  • Many women are sympathetic towards strangers. STOP. 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” getting into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
  • If you hear a baby crying on your porch late at night, DO NOT open the door.  Police say it has not been verified, but they think a serial killer has a baby’s cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby.  Police say they have had several calls by women in Louisiana saying that they hear baby’s cries outside their doors when they’re home alone at night and this case appeared on America’s Most Wanted.  How likely do you think it is that copy cats will soon start using this method?
  • If you wake up in the middle of the night and hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! Predators are turning on all the outside taps full blast so victims will go out to investigate; then they attack.

Thank you to Monica for emailing these reminders to me.

    You forgot “throw your purse/wallet at him, draw your GUN with the other hand and shoot him in the chest.” Not the head, the head is a small moving target. Two or three shots to the chest will do it, most of the time. If not, keep shooting until he is DEAD. Let YOUR story be the only one to tell.

      You are such a simple, no-holds-barred, take-action, no nonsense rabid killer kinda dude, aintcha little buddy? However, if I ever have to walk down a dark alley or venture into any spooky, skin-crawling, possibly dangerous situation, I would want you in front of me, to my sides, and in back of me at all times. I know you have more than 4 firearms, and more than four firing arms, and that your octipi arms would be able to do this without any stress whatsoever, or else I wouldn’t bother to ask.
