    My wife got scared today.

    So my wife works at a restaurant on the main strip in town. Our down town is fairly small, and the restaurant she works at is on the corner of the main strip. She always parks on the side road next to the building.

    Well today she pulled up parallel parked her van. She was sitting there brushing her hair getting ready to get out and a car pulls up behind her and parks and the guy just sits there hand on the steering wheel starring at her. She can see him in the rear view. So she gets a little creeped out and decided to stay put for a few minutes just to see if the guy gets out or drives off but he doesn't.

    He just keeps sitting there starring. So then she thinks maybe he doesn't realize she is parked and doesn't know that he can just go around, but after about 5 minutes another car drives by so there's plenty of room for him to go around if he needed to.

    So after the other car had passed by she decided to go and park on the main road in front of the restaurant well as she pulls forward the guy in the car pulls right up behind her, and when she turns left he take off to the right and just goes on his way.

    Sound to me like he was waiting on her to get out. Who knows. I think she did the right thing staying in her van and then driving off.

    So what are everyone's thoughts on this?

    Kudos to her. Great SA. On another note, I recognize your avatar from that "other" CC site.

    My first thought here is that your wife did a VERY GOOD thing by paying attention to what her "spidey sense" was telling her (LISTEN to that little voice). My second thought is really a question--was she carrying--if not, why not? The third thought is it would have been helpful for her to call 911 and explain the situation and tell them that she is concerned, and is an officer available for a drive-by??

    Glad she is OK!!

    At least she was looking...many people don't notice those things around them.
    Give her a pat on the back, and another box of ammo.

    It does sound like he was waiting for your wife to get out of her van. If this happens again, I hope she gets the license plate number of this possible predator.

    Yea she has come a long way from where she was. After being married to me for 9 years she has started to notice a lot more than she use to.

    I have blind deadbolts on every door of my house; front door, patio French doors, John Deere room, 2nd floor balcony. Thus, if I'm attending to the front door, good luck to BGs gaining entrance anywhere else!

    I've been drinking, so maybe I'm wrong, but what does this have to do with anything?

    Many things can "trigger" a pervert,A woman combing her hair,or any one of a hundred things,my wife was trying on some high heels in a shoe store when some guy made a comment like"oh yeah I like those",creeped her out and she left and went to Walmart,she was in the pharmacy section when she heard a guy say something like"did I freak you out" same guy and she yelled get away from me M-fer,I was at a Doctors office a block away at the time,she told him don't even try to follow me to my vehicle.We had a big talk afterwards,she is from Canada and it's the first time she ever felt threatened,I told her next time yell for Security and don't leave the damn store.

    I think he was replying to a earlier post about BG and their M.O. of one perp distracting the homeowner at te front door and other perp stealing out the back......but I Too have been drinking so I could be wrong!
