Freaky Encounters

The incident I wrote about the other day with the crazy dude in the parking lot got me thinking about other freaky people I've had encounters with.

The main one I can remember was actually quite a traumatic experience.

Back in Grade 11, I was picking up ice at a 7-11 before heading over to my BFF's house for a partay. While waiting, I noticed this sketchy looking man wearing a big hunting coat standing behind me in line. This was strange because it was summer. I think. I can't remember all the details.

Anyway, I didn't think anything of it, bought the ice, and went out to the blue van. I loved that van. Just as I was putting on my seatbelt, I heard the passenger side door handle trying to be opened (click click click, I can still hear it), and saw THE MAN!!!! He was trying to get in!

Thank jeebus my mommy taught me to always lock the doors after getting in a car.

I yelled something like, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING???" and started backing out of the parking spot. He was still trying to open the doors - like perhaps they had magically unlocked.

Anyway, I drove in a panic to my friend's house and called the po. And that is the end of my story.

Always lock your doors! M doesn't like that I do this for some reason, but I don't care. I don't want to think about what could have happened if my doors had been unlocked that night.

Spooky, eh? Okay, tell me your interesting encounters with nutcases.


  1. Mostly I don't like it because our car doors don't allow you to open them from the inside when they are locked.

  2. Jill, I never knew that happened to you! So scary! This is a fear that I have and I always lock my doors. I also fear this can happen at a red light too! I am glad to hear this story as it reinforces my actions and tells me that I am not crazy.

  3. That is really scary.... somehow I don't think you told me about this..... hmmmmm... maybe a good thing you didn't. I always lock my doors.... too many creeps out there....

  4. I remember that.. you were soooo scared!!
