      Yes, be aware of those around you. I was taught this from a very

      young age. No, I’m not in the “young generation” that was taught

      beware of strangers due to child abductions that have been happening

      for the past several years, I’m a few weeks from turning 50.

      One man last summer was high on meth, and tried to abduct a woman

      that was putting items in the back of her van. He shoved her into

      the back of the van. Before he could push her on in and slam the

      doors, she kicked him in the chest with both feet. She’s a black

      belt, too. Other customers saw what was happening and held the man

      until police arrived. He just picked the wrong female to attack.

      If any man is acting strange, I go to a clerk in the store. There

      was a real flake that was starting in at me on “the inflation

      conspiracy” and I tried to walk away from him. He tried to stay with

      me and I was heading to the door. I stopped to talk to the clerk at

      the self check-out and told her the man was harassing me. He heard

      it and went on out. I stayed at the door checker’s area, watching

      until he left the parking lot. She got his license plate number when

      I told what was going on and turned it in to the manager. Don’t

      hesitate to tell store personnel of such things. If someone is

      following you around the store, something is up.
