    Default ALERT For FEMALES!!!!

    IMPORTANT PLEASE READ

    A friend stopped at a pay-at-the-pump gas station to get gas. Once she filled her gas tank and after paying at the pump and starting to leave, the voice of the attendant inside came over the speaker. He told her that something happened with her card and that she needed to come inside to pay. The lady was confused because the transaction showed complete and approved. She relayed that to him and was getting ready to leave but the attendant, once again, urged her to come in to pay or there'd be trouble. She proceeded to go inside and started arguing with the attendant about his threat. He told her to calm down and listen carefully:

    He said that while she was pumping gas, a guy slipped into the back seat of her car on the other side and the attendant had already called the police.

    She became frightened and looked out in time to see her car door open and the guy slip out. The report is that the new gang initiation thing is to bring back a woman and/or her car. One way they are doing this is crawling under women's cars while they're pumping gas or at grocery stores in the nighttime. The other way is slipping into unattended cars and kidnapping the women.

    Please pass this on to other women, young and old alike. Be extra careful going to and from your car at night. If at all possible, don't go alone!
    This is real!!

    The message:

    1. ALWAYS lock your car doors, even if you're gone for just a second!

    Check underneath your car when approaching it for reentry, and check in the back before getting in.

    3. Always be aware of your surroundings and of other individuals in your general vicinity, particularly at night!

    Send this to everyone so your friends can take precaution.

    AND GUYS...YOU TELL ANY WOMEN YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS Thanks,

    Barbara Baker, Secretary Directorate of Training U.S. Army Military Police
    School

    THIS IS TOO SERIOUS ... DO NOT DELETE. PLEASE PASS IT ON!!

    Maybe so but it is still a good idea to pay attention to your surroundings and not get so caught up in a cell phone call that you don't see what's happening around you.
    My sisters all are easy to sneak up on and if I can do it with my nieces able to point me out,I worry how hard it is for someone with more on their mind that getting the kids wound up before leaving.

    Pay attention sure, but no need to perpetuate paranoia either.

    Aaaargh!!!! I hate getting these stupid warnings from people who think they are doing me a favor. When I'm filling up my car, between being sure my cell phone is turned off, being careful not to RUB anything that will cause a static charge to blow me up, wearing a freakin' BA to protect myself from the toxic fumes, blocking the keypad so no one with binoculars gets my PIN number... how do I have the time left to watch for gang members sneaking into my car?

    Being alert to your surroundings doesn't mean that you are being paranoid.As I type this at the public library,I can tell you within reason where someone is standing behind me but that only means that I don't focus entirely what I am doing,even though it is a major source of my misspellings.
    If I was being paranoid about it,I'd be covering them with my revolver since openly carrying an M14 type rifle,or any other firearm is legal in Kentucky but it is a bit of overkill,to me.

    Passing on BS rumors like the one here perpetuate paranoia, there is no reason for it, it does not make people pay more attention it just makes some folks more on edge and makes the world appear to be a much worse place than it really is.

    Don't forget protecting your fingernails when hitting the keypad.

    Bahaha! Yes, my fingernails that are filed into gangster-eye-poking-points, but not painted because the nail polish fumes could combine with the gas fumes and then be sparked by the static created when my fishnet stockings rub against my faux fur seat cover when I reach into my car for my purse to get my compact so I can check my eye makeup while my tank is filling... Oh, the perils that await those of us born with two X chromosomes!

    But seriously, no fingernails to protect here!

    This is why all cars should be protected by Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson



    And all homes should be protected by a large dog and a pump shotgun

    Have you watched the show on Discovery called “It takes a thief”. Haven’t seen a dog yet worth anything, for home security. I know where mine would be. Hiding under the bed hoping no one seen it shaking. LOL.

    Default Twisted thinking...

    If it happened or not, you gotta remember that there are people out there with heads twisted enough to think like this. Afterall, they started the legend somewhere.

    Wait... Us twisted guys are in here. Sorry, my mistake!

    My dog walks softly and carries a big stick. Seriously, he's much more likely to just show the perp where all the goodies are as long as he gets a scratch behind the ears LOL.

    I really dont think anyone wants to challenge my puppy. He's kinda on the heavier side for a rottweiler. So well trained, he thinks he is my master. Here's a pic with his trainer.

    If he fails, I always have my buddies Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson and their 13 fast-moving friends.

    Okay, here are my protectors... Neither one of them would protect my house or property if I weren't there, but look sideways at me and watch out!
