I remember this one time when I was a kid when my dad was taking us to pick up donuts from Krispy Kreme in Baton Rouge. After coming out of the donuts shop, a kind of raggedy looking man approached us (my dad, my brother, my sister, and I) in the parking lot and asked my dad if he had any change to spare. The guy had his hand on the inside of his jacket as if he were hiding something in it the whole time. My dad wisely said sure and gave him some change in an effort to protect his children and the man accepted the change and went away. I had thought that the guy was creepy looking and that it was strange of that guy to ask my dad that because it wasn't like we looked like we were rolling in the doe or anything. I am glad that my dad handled this situation well and used his street smarts to keep us safe. However, this situation got me to wonder, what if something like this happened to a woman? What if the man was hiding a gun in his jacket and attacked the woman? What do you think that the best way for a woman to handle this situation would be if she could not gather up all 3 of her kids in time to run back into the donuts shop and get away? I guess she could try and scream. Maybe she could toss some money away from herself?
