***Always have your situational awareness meter pegged. ***
I hate to say this but it seems that women are oblivious to their surroundings most of the time.
And they lose all awareness if they have to pee or eat. My wife has DEMANDED I stop at times in areas I would not normally stop in. I did one night and she jumped out to go to a rest room. I stayed at the auto with a BHP and a CZ-75 in both hands. Half way to the store she suddenly became AWARE! turned around and came back to the car.
There were about a dozen cars, all had several blacks in them, just sitting. Not talking, buying, or anything else, just sitting. We may have stumbled on a drug pickup point at an isolated convenience store on I-40, Tennessee.
Something similar happened in daylight in Little Rock Ar.
They demanded I find a place to stop. They saw a station, but I demanded they stay in the auto while I went inside to check it over. I came back and said WE will go somewhere else.
About 3 mos ago I rode with Mom over to Whitehall, an iffy suburb of Pittsburgh. She parked in the lot on the side of the business, head on to the building.
I got out of the passenger side and walked around the front of the car next to the building.
black male comes walking down the sidewalk in front of the building and walked right by me without seeing me. Saw Mom alone in the car, walked 30' off the sidewalk to within 2' of the car, stopped and stared at her through the windshield, slowly walked the length of the car staring inside going to the back corner and stopped. He looked around, turned and took a step back and then saw me at the front of the car with my hand under my shirt at my belt.
He got an "Oh s***! Look on his face, dropped his eyes, turned and walked away.
Mom never noticed what he was doing.
