Weenie here........Just wanted you all to know that the Specialist won't be able to do Mona's procedures today, so now we aren't sure when she will be going in for them. Mommy hopes Thursday, so she can stay home with her for at least 4 days after her surgery. Mona says to tell all of you that she is fine, right now, but poor Mommy is a whole different story.

In 1994 Mommy was mugged on her way into the building where she works. The guy shoved her into the wall, hit her in the face and ran off with her purse. She was in the hospital for 3 days. Thank goodness, she works at the hospital. Well today a friend sent an artical to Mommy and she asked me to share it with the DWB community.

Written by a Cop for Our Own Safety

Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or a loved one's life.

In daylight hours, refresh yourself
of these things to do in an emergency situation...
This is for you, and for you to share with your wife,
your children, & everyone you know.

After reading these 10 crucial tips,
forward them to someone you care about.
It 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.
If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse,
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.

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.
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.
If someone is in the car
with a gun to your head
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.

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.
(This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun
and you are not under his control,
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!

8. As women, we are always trying
to be sympathetic:
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.

9. Another Safety Point:
Someone just told me that her friend heard
a crying baby on her porch the night before last,
and she called the police because it was late
and she thought it was weird.. The police told her
'Whatever you do, DO NOT
open the door..'
The lady then said that it sounded like the baby
had crawled near a window, and she was worried
that it would crawl to the street and get run over.
The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way,
whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.'
He told her that 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.. He said they have not verified it,
but have had several calls by women saying that
they hear baby's cries outside their doors
when they're home alone at night.

10. Water scam!
If you wake up in the middle
of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a
burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your
outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and
then attack.

Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors!

Sniff ya later..........Weenie

Years and years and years ago my Mom (RIP) was attacked and had her purse taken, not once, but 4 times. Definitely something to think about. Thanks for all the good pointers.

Mona, good luck with your procedure. We have all our paws crossed for you.

Hound Girl said...

Thank you Thank you for sharing this - this is wonderful and sometimes we forget these pointers cause we get relaxed that it will not happen to us.

We are so sorry that your Mommy had to endure such a horrible ordeal. These are some great tips. And a refresher is always a good thing - we think the peeps forget about all those little things too often.

Paws crossed for Mona.

These are all very good tips! My mom actually took karate and self-defense a few years ago and wants to start my sissy in karate next year.

Sending your mom and Mona lots of love and prayers.
