Dr. Lynda Myers (Mom) sent this to Me as a motherly precaution. Now you might have seen variations of this before, but most of this is true. I'm are not sharing this info in order to scare you or make you paranoid, but hey, I'd rather be alive than dead. Especially since Girlfriends are being kidnapped from bus stations in D.C. Hot mess! As per the movie Forrest Gump: Run, Girl, Run!!

  • The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do! Oh, and use your teeth.

  • 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!

  • If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car (and Chile, we hope not), kick out the back taillights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will.

  • Now, my neighbor told me this when I was younger because someone was stalking her. You know how you get in your car after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing your checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON'T DO THIS!) The crazys might 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. Well, at least lock the doors. I drove past a club once and these two dudes got in my car because I was having a convo with my girl (who was in another car) and they heard me say that I was going to another club in which they wanted to go to. LUCKY for me they weren’t crazy and I had another person in my car. Once we got there, my girlfriend reamed me a new one. I knew better than to leave my car doors unlock. I mean GGT is based in New Jack City.

  • This sounds a bit dangerous, but if it saves your life, do it. 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 a remote location.

  • 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.

  • I can see this for nighttime and in deserted locations. Otherwise, get your Alli exercise on: 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 zigzag pattern!

  • As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: 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" into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

Be Seen at the Top!

This is great advice. I'd like to add 1 more.

I know many women accept drinks from strangers when they go to nightclubs and bars. Stop that now. You never know someones real intentions until its too late. And yeah people don't spike drinks the way they did 10 years ago but it still happens. A free apple martini isn't worth the craziness.

This is true! LMAO. You can't go anywhere or do anything now. But we don't want you do be totally paranoid... just aware of your surroundings.
