HOW TO GET AWAY!
Today on Facebook this post was shared by a friend:
My daughter was at the Wareham Cumberlands yesterday getting gas. A man started talking to her and wouldn't stop. When she turned around to get in her car he ACTUALLY RAN HIS FINGER DOWN HER BACK! She turned around to sit in her car and tried to shut the door but he put his hand on the door and wouldn't let her shut it. He was looking in her car. He kept talking and my daughter looked up and locked eyes with another man in a truck and he mouthed "Are you okay?" And she shook her head. He came over and asked her if she got her gas and was all set and the creep was STILL trying to make conversation with her. The creep eventually realized that the man wasn't going away until he did and he turned to walk away and said nice to meet you. She is reporting it to the police and the store management. If anyone has had this happen to them or someone they know please report it!! If anyone has heard anybody telling this story and he stepped in and saved my daughter, please tell me who it is because I need to thank him.
Reading this really pissed me off! I was pissed at the scumbag who was basically assaulting this young girl, but I was also pissed that this young girl had never been taught to MAKE A SCENE. There is so much crap that is taught to our children in school, but not this. I am so thankful that she was smart enough to ask for help from a bystander, but I would really like to impart the importance of knowing this SIMPLE SELF DEFENSE TECHNIQUE.
MAKE A SCENE is a SIMPLE self defense technique that should be taught as part of every school's curriculum. Attract attention and let someone know that something is wrong. Take away the attackers power, take away the element of surprise. MAKE A SCENE AND MAKE THE ATTACKER GO AWAY!
Obnoxious I know, but it got your attention. And that's what MAKE A SCENE is all about, getting someone's attention.
MAKE A SCENE:
Now teach your daughters and your sons and your mothers and sisters and aunts and cousins and anyone who means anything to you this SIMPLE SELF DEFENSE TECHNIQUE!
