Ok this post is not really about buckling, but it is about safety!
I am not even a little bit qualified to speak about women's safety, however, I do claim to know a few tips.
My father has worked in a prison a majority of my life. Since he has worked in a prison and been around men who... get around, he knows a few of their tricks and what they are looking for to get what they want. My dad heres a lot of disturbing things from inmates first hand about what they looked for before they got to prison.
I have grown up with my dad giving me warnings about certain things and I am grateful for it. Now I think it is time that I share the wealth.
Today I will share 4 safety tips. I know that I am kind of making light of it but this is so serious. If some women would have known some of these tips, their virtue and/ or life could have been spared.
1. See these?
I was always taught to NEVER put anything on my car that indicates that I am a girl.
Also, when getting into your car, always have your keys ready to go. Even before you even get in the car.
2. Along the same lines... See these?
What kind of message are you sending to a sexual predator? I'll tell you.
"Hey guy (or women I suppose), I have four children! 3 girls, 1 boy. Their names are... Come follow me home so you can kidnap my children!"
You are basically giving any predator all the info they need. Let's leave the kids off the back of the car.
3. Don't be stupid. Never go running at night by yourself. You know why.
4. Don't go running with head phones on full blast.
My intent of writing this post was not only to scare you (did it?) but to give you a leg up. It's so important that we know how to protect ourselves, even a little bit. I am sorry if this came off as harsh. I am guess I am just a little passionate about my safety and the safety of others.
