    Hello dahlings, I was out walking my dog and noticed a vehicle on the side of the road with the car door open. The woman in it was acting VERY odd. So I stop and asked if she needed help, at first she wouldnt look at me and by what she said, she did not want me there. As I was walking away she looked at me and OMG her face was covered with huge sores. It looked like she had road rash all over her face.I figured she was on drugs and I better get the Hell out of there.

    One of my neighbors told me to call the police, the other neighbor said to stay out of it and dont get involved and my hubby told me to call the police but also to never to get involved in any situation like that again. So I called the police.

    So Im hoping I did the right thing and that a group of druggies wont show up at my house.

    So what would you have done?

    p.s. My cousin was attacked in her car, in a busy parking lot and ppl just walked by and didnt help her. I dont want to be like those ppl.

    Cookie,

    No worries!!! I'm not sure what I would have done in that situation but it likely would have been the same thing! It sounds like you were pretty scared and I would have been too. I'd say you did the right thing. I'm sure they didn't follow you home and have no idea that you were the one who called. Don't sweat it at all!

    I think you did the right thing! I know that I wouldn't want to be that woman in the car and needed help, but no one did anything. All you did was make the phone call so that the professionals could take it from there - so I think you did good!

    Monkeybee honey face, Thanks. Im glad that I did call the police because she may have been drugged up, or someone may have hurt her or it could have been anything. btw, LOVE your pic. honey. Now I know what you look like. bow-chicka-bow-bow.

    Debbie Doodles Dahling, Thanks. Your right, calling and putting the situation in the hands of the professionals, it kinda takes it out of my hands. muahs

    Thank you and ha! You crack me up. Now I just have 30 lbs of baby weight to lose. Can you still call it baby fat if your baby is 6 months old? Ha!

    Honey Bunny, you can call it what ever you want. When women have any bit of fat on their bodies, we tend to call it different things. Right now my fat is going to my booty and thighs. I think I will call it Poochy Pouches or Cookies Cute Chubbs. hehehe

    Would have gotten away ASAP and called the police as I was doing it...no waiting. That's just too odd, and I would NOT want anything like that in my neighborhood, whether she needed medical help, or was a criminal...either way, someone in authority needed to respond.
