She screamed for him to stop, screamed for help & two men ran up and grabbed the man. He told police that the he found a little girl & was escorting her to lost & found so she could find her mommy!! (sure you were, that's why you were trying to exit the zoo with a crying little girl)
Anything crazy ever happen in your life that could've ended up a lifetime movie?
*I actually experienced something worse than almost being abducted at the zoo ::
When I was 7, I remember being woken up in the middle of the night by my mother, she grabbed me and put her finger over her mouth (as to say SSSHHHH - be quiet) we ran and hid under our kitchen table (it was a round glass table but we had a super long table clothe (it almost reached the ground) anyway we were hiding under the table & I saw two pairs of black boot walking around our apartment (it scared the shit out of me)
They were there for what felt like forever (my mom said it was like 5/10 mins) - crazy shit is they didn't ransack our apartment or even take anything.
We moved to Staten Island like a day or two later.
Later on in life I found out that my bio dad was into some shit he shouldn't have been into & those guys were there looking for him. My mom & dad hadn't been together since I was like 1 - but it was the last known address they knew he lived at.
When I was 16 I was walking home from a friends house. My friend walked me to the corner of my street cuz it was dark , and I only lived two blocks down. As I was passing a house, an suv pulled halfway into the driveway and halfway blocking the sidewalk. Instincts told me to walk in the street around the car. As I did, the driver asked me for directions. When I said idk sorry, he angrily told me to come over there. I screamed fuck you and booked it. He sped off and when I got home, I immedietlu called the cops. They never found the guy, but for months random people would call the house and ask for me or my mom and then hang up.
I was on the school track team and got way behind everyone else. I stopped in a parking lot to catch my breath and there was a guy talking ona cell phone. He gave me the worst feeling ever. I was trying to wait until he left before I did. I gave him about a5 minute headstart and then started walking. Literally 2 minutes later i turned a corner to go down the road where my school was and he was there, walking slowly and breaking offpieces of the weeds on the side. I felt really uncomfortable, but didn't want to pass him and him be behind me where I couldn't see him. Finally he turned off and I was like oh good. Except that 2 minutes later, he was behind me. I started jogging. He kept up. All of the sudden he says "why are you following me?!" I ran for my life. Fast enough to catch up with the rest of the team.
January 30, 2013 at 8:54 PMI only remember bits and pieces because I was about 7 or 8, but I used to attend a summer camp for physically disabled kids. One day during lunch, I was going through the lunch line when one of the servers told me that my parents had given him permission to drive me home that afternoon. I had, to my knowledge, never seen him before, so I said 'no thanks' and continued through the line. After sitting down, I took change from my emergency money stash and called home to ask my parents about it. My dad confirmed that there had been no such arrangement made, so I approached the nearest counselor and told him everything. I wish I could remember what ended up happening with that guy, but I never saw him again. My parents also took me off the bus that drove the kids to the university that hosted the camp, and drove me themselves.
I went to my neighbor's house (lonely old man) at the age of 5ish or 6ish to show him my dress. I usually just sat on his porch w him but this time he brought me into his house. We go into his kitchen where he gave me my fave candy (those strawberry ones w the jelly inside) and has me sit next to him on his couch in his living room. I don't remember anything after that until about 3 police officers busted down the door and the woman officer grabbed me. I was confused why I didn't have my dress on anymore. I remember my dad speeding up to our house and he jump out w his pocket knife drawn. He almost made it to our neighbor before the police got to him. I remember the questions and the fear. I was afraid *I* did something wrong and that the police were taking me to jail. I remember the forensic detectives but I don't remember what he did to me.
January 30, 2013 at 8:56 PMA lot of scary stuff has happened to me.
I used to work for a call center. I worked 3 days a week from 8 am to 10 pm. So it was always dark when I got out of work. We were having some work done to the parking lot so we all parked in the empty warehouse lot across the street. One night I got out extra late. There were only a few co-workers left but I went out alone. As I crossed the street a man came out of the woods on the other side of the lot. When I got in my car he started walking toward me faster, jogging like. When I started my car he started running at me. As I backed out of the spot I almost backed right into him. I sped off like a bat outta hell. I told my manager the next day and they started making us always walk out with someone.
Another time, I went to the 'mega mall'. It's a super ghetto warehouse with booths set up and people sell knock off crap for cheap. A tiny Mexican guy in a huge cowboy hat started following me. He was like 10 feet or so behind me. I walked all the way around the warehouse and he was still behind me. Every time I stopped, he stopped. I headed for the door. I saw a guy walking toward me with a Mohawk, tattoos and piercings all over. I kind of eyed him and nodded toward the man behind me and made a frightened face. The guy stopped the cowboy and started trying to ask him where the bathroom was. I booked it to my car.
Another time, I was in the dollar store. There was a man in the aisle with me starring at hair bows. Just staring at them. I moved to another aisle and there he was. Every aisle I went to he showed up in. When I went to check out he was right behind me. All he had was a bottle of shampoo that he must have just picked up. I walked out the door and he walked out just after me, sans shampoo. I was freaked out so I walked next door to Kmart. I walked around a little. Found myself in the shoe dept. I walked around an aisle and there he was. Just standing there. I went and found a stock boy and asked him to walk me to my car.
When I was 18 I was walking my dog outside my apartment before work. When I walked by the first time I saw a man by the mailboxes but didn't think anything of it. On my way back around I heard him ask me what time it was, looked at my watch & turned around to say 7 am when I saw that he was jacking off. I gave him a really weird look & turned back around when he went for my shirt like he was going to grab me. I took off running & he chased me all the way up the stairs of my apartment but ran off when I started screaming Dh's (then bf) name. He ran outside but the guy was no where to be found. We called the police, but he was never found.
by Anonymous 12January 30, 2013 at 9:06 PMI can think of two things. Once when.I was about 10 my friend and I were.riding bikes back to her house from mine. An old blue car with an old man driving and two younger boys/men came.up behind us real slow...we got.out of the.road thinking.they wanted to.pass but they just kept slowly creeping.behind us. The one younger guy.in the back started to.unbuckle his seat belt so my friend.and I.rode our.bikes.as fast as we could.right.up to.the.door.of.the.next house and started screaming(luckily the lady was a "safe house" for.our.neighborhood/bus.stop)...she.came.running.out.of the.house.and the car took off speeding. A few days later there was an article talking about a blue chevy with 56 year old man and his.two 20 something year old sons.had.been trying.to abduct girls around.our.town.
The next time I was 14 and me, my 2 best friends and one.of their.little.brothers.snuck.out.of the.house.in the.middle.of.the.night. It was.around 230-3 in the.morning and these.two.drunk guys start yelling.at us from a truck about.coming.home with them. One starts to get out of the car and I.turn around and both my friends.and.the.little brother.are.like 200 yards away from me already running...I.take.off and the.man started chasing me...thankfully.he.was drunk.and.fell and I caught up with my friends and hid.in the churh bus.that was in our churches.parking.lot.
I remember one time when I was probably 12 or 13 my sister and a friend .of ours were at home alone. I front .door had a diamond shape in it I looked up and some guy was stairing in the window. My sister also Aww him but .our friend didn't believe us so she goes to look out the window and ends up gave to gave with this guy. We ran down the hall screaming for our dad even though he wasn't there.

When I was 5yo I was riding my bike outside our place & a car stopped in front of me & grabed my bike (1h on the steering wheel, 1h o my backtire or seat cant remember) . I jumped off & ran to my mom.
When I was about 11yrs old a friends brother had a crush on me and I didnt know it... One day the cops call my parents saying they have a peice of their property & have some questions for them.. Come to find out he had been skipping high school & sneaking into our house, he would eat our food & generally act at home. he was also stealing my undies & other small things. He got caught walking down the street with my dads gun! and told the cops a crazy story about my parents being drug dealers & all this weird stuff.... After that we had found pictures of me down in our couch where he had ripped out everyone in the pic but me.. ----------He was sent to boot camp & afterward actually showed up at my house unexpectedly to tell me he was out :-/ it scared the crap out of me I was home alone. Thankfully a friend was coming up our driveway so he just nicely left..

Good, she has her 6 month MRI tomorrow....Fingers crossed
How is your daughter doing?
Our yard was along a road that was not used very much except for people in the neighborhood. My mom was at work and my dad was in the house (I was about 6). I was playing outside in the yard with my dog when a guy pulled up and tried to ask me for directions. I started walking back up to my house and the guy got out of his car, my dog started barking at him and alerted my neighbor who was sitting on her side porch, she screamed for him to get away from me and he took off. My dad came running outside and ended up calling the police and made a report. Nothing ever came of it.
