Holiday Shopping Tips

Shopping tips from Tramp?

Yes, but not of the type you might be thinking.

The holiday shopping season starts very soon. The stores, parking lots, and streets become very crowded and hectic. People seem to come out of the woodwork.

Not all of these people are nice people. Some are dangerous.
And that is where my tips may come in handy.

What to Do If You Are Attacked
If you are accosted in a parking lot away from your own vehicle, immediately begin screaming for the police. Many times, an attacker may decide that the situation is too dangerous and will flee.
If you see the attacker first – or if you wiggle out of his grasp – try to roll underneath a nearby vehicle. It is difficult to force anyone out from under a car and your attacker may decide to move on to easier prey. As soon as you are under the car, use your cell phone to call the police or keep screaming for help. Screaming will also deter the predator from coming after you again.
If an attacker is able to surprise you and manages to get into your car while you are in it, do everything in your power to exit the automobile. Blast your horn as much as possible.
If you are attacked while you’re behind the wheel and the car is on, steer your vehicle into a barricade, a pole, a wall or any object that will create a minor accident. Take advantage while your attacker’s attention has been diverted and exit the automobile. You should run, yell, scream or do anything else you can to get attention.
If you must physically defend yourself, gouge your attacker’s eyes or bite at any exposed skin, and then get yourself out of the car as quickly as possible.
Hopefully you will never have such a frightening encounter. But having a quick action plan in mind should give you the confidence that you can handle anything that comes your way.
