I Was Mistaken For A Kidnapper

I Was Mistaken For A Kidnapper

I’m not exactly sure about this but from the way the man hesitated before getting into the drivers seat I’m sure I was right.

It happened while my husband was in jail and I had forgotten all about it until I was doing some surfing on my computer and listening to a scary story on YouTube about this woman who almost got kidnapped and it clicked at that moment when she stepped forward to shake the man’s hand but she was on the passenger’s side of the car and she would have had to lean into the vehicle to shake his hand.

In my situation we had been at Wal-Mart doing our grocery shopping, it was extremely hot because it was the middle of July. We came out of the store with a crap load of perishable items. I get everything loaded into the truck, get my kids in and try to crank it up except the key won’t turn and the ignition is locked. What the heck!

Luckily I see a man about 20 feet in front of me and I yell “sir I need some help!” He comes over no hesitation and I tell him what’s going on and I ask him please get in and see if it will work for you. He just looks at me and I’m giving him this look and I say please and then after looking at me and my kids and apparently seeing the desperation on my face he gets in and tries to crank it and of course it won’t crank for him either.

He gets out and raises the hood of it and begins explaining to me what was going on and all but all I can remember is him saying that the engine just needed to cool off. After a few minutes it was fine.

I have to say that was the weirdest day ever. That was also my first time ever having someone act like they were scared of me. It’s usually women who have to be careful but now I know that men have to be careful too.

Has anything like that ever happened to you? Let me know in the comments.
