SAFETY TIPS FOR WOMEN (found these in my yahoo! archives)

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. 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!

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, making up, or making a
list,etc. DON'T DO THIS! 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. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.

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).

7. 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!

8. Women are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! 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.

hmmm...removing the backlights when locked in a booth is so sensible. how come people don't think about doing that? even in movies, they just scream and hit the top of the booth.
nice stuff!

@ be silent- thank you for stopping by here. And the pleasure was all mine.

@ baba willy- thanks, my doctor friend.

@ isi- sometimes it's good to learn from those who know of security issues like whomsoever compiled this list, originally

@ uzo- I pray and believe too, that you'll never have to need these pints

@ catwalq- ok, but watch the types of buildings you do staircases in.

@ ~mimi~ thank you, ~idol~. I'm glad to be of help in my way. I've been fine. This Sunday-Sunday show thing is strenuous, but highly fulfilling. I decided today as I read your comment again, that if I didn't do anything else in my life, I'd meet my ~idol~. You're very nice.
