Never safe

I was a full time college student when I meet him. One day I decided to stop by the computer lab before going to class. I wanted to check my online bids. I was wearing a school girl outfit that day and he was in the lab and it attracted his attention. He seemed nice at first he offered to carry my books to my class and I agreed. We exchanged phone numbers. We talked on the phone for a couple days we liked a lot of the same tv shows videogames and so on. I gave him my address and school schedule. After all a man so polite and kind couldn’t be dangerous. he brought flowers to my class. And it seemed perfect.

About a week later he told me that he had just bee released from prison for molesting a 6 year old little girl. I was scared he had all my information already I couldn’t un tell him it and I knew he could easily get to me and hurt me if he wanted to. So I played along all nice hopeing he would be nice if I was nice.

First year was great and then progressively he got worse and worse more and more abusive. He would continually say that if he wasn’t with me he would molest another child. So I stayed with him and put up with his crap trying to keep the unknown children safe. 4 years after I meet him we had an unplanned pregnancy I was very happy at first still am about the baby but not so much his attitude or the trouble that was caused.

The Uninvited Stranger

This story happened to my mother back when she was just 14 years old.

From this point on, I will continue the story exactly how my mother told it to me:

At the time, my parents, my sister, and I were in the process of moving across the country, and when this incident occurred we were just days away from leaving our old home for our new one. This meant that just about everything we owned had already been packed and shipped off to the new house, so we ended up spending our final few nights curled up in sleeping bags on the floor.

My sister Roxanne and I were sleeping together in one bedroom while our parents slept across the hall in another. It was during the summer, and since we didn’t have air conditioning at the time, we would regularly leave our bedroom window cracked open in order to relieve some the stuffiness that filled the house during those months. Our house was a single story, and our bedroom faced the front yard. You might be thinking that this wasn’t a very wise decision given the circumstances, but we spent many nights before this the exact same way and never once had a problem. Not until this horrifying encounter.

Firefighter and His Only Child

My uncle is a registered firefighter with all certificates for everything possible. He always told us that it was hard for him to help save people that couldn’t respond to his voice such as babies but he would save anyone because it was his job. We never thought that this advice would soon about to kill him inside.

This is something sort of a sad story but it includes a very creepy person. Names have been changed because even after five years it still haunts my dreams. I will start off at the birth of my Uncle (lets name him Logan) first child (name is Steve). As teen parents we all knew that it would be rough but with everyone’s help they would make it. Steve was born healthy and his mother stayed the normal amount of time in the hospital after his birth.

After Steve’s birth everything went on as normal but everyone but myself had taken many pictures with him something that I now regret.  The little family Logan, Lilly and,(Steve’s mother) had even had professional pictures done. We are all thankful for the pictures now that we look back. (This is the part of the story that gets sad but introduces the creepy person). Lilly’s mother was a very unhappy person about the fact that her teenage daughter had gotten pregnant. After the baby’s birth she acted as if she was happy but everyone knew she was faking. She hated the child and had even told Lilly that she wished that Lilly told her about sleeping without the condom so she could have got the morning after pill.

Beneath the Lake and Behind the Truth

My mom and whole family has always bought and sold items on Craigslist for as long as I can remember. Since I was little, I always found that the whole dealing with a stranger on the middle of nowhere deal was the unsafest thing you could do but, free stuff right? This story proved me wrong. A few years back, My family was in search of a bed frame for cheap. With little to no luck, my mom began to search craigslist and found one. It seemed to be in decent condition so she messaged the seller. He seemed off even by his messages. He wanted to meet at his home in the middle of nowhere. My mother felt unsafe. In her gut feeling she knew she could not meet up with this man.  She declined his offer even though we went down on the price to coax her into coming. Soon after the fact, an older couple from a few cities over went missing. They had went on a road trip to purchase something they found on Craigslist. In a small Georgia town,  the same one that my Mother almost traveled to to meet the man with the Bed frame, the couples bodies and car was found in a lake near to the mans address, weeks after they went missing. The man was found and arrested but it’s unnerving to think that this seller and murderer was the same man that tried to coax my mom into coming to his house in the woods. This stranger off craigslist could have made me a motherless child. I have not been on the site in search of things since but, if you have to meet to purchase something make sure it’s in a public place with witnesses and you always follow your gut feeling

Creepy Delivery Man

So my aunts were out of town for a couple a weeks and trusted me to be home alone (since I’m 20 years old) they didn’t have a thing to worry about. I’m not the major party type, I just like to go to work at a local store in my hometown, go out to eat, get cleaned up, go to bed, and repeat.

I decided to stay in one night and ordered pizza. I didn’t think this much trouble would come from something so simple.

I called and ordered, it didn’t take too long for them to get to my house. I looked to make sure it was the delivery guy. I was thankfully correct, he was kinda creepy.

The Man at the Door

Hi My name is Tory and this is about one of my scariest sleep overs. I was 10 when this happened. Ok lets start!

It was 5:00 pm and I was getting ready to have sleepover with a few friends. The sleepover starts at 5:30 and I had to get snacks,games,and movies ready. It was time to start the sleepover. The first two girls that got there were Lizeth and Haley. They both had their bags and some games. I said “hey guys come in yall can go and put the games on the table” then lizeth said “ok this is going to be so much fun!!” The girls went in and headed in the kitchen to put the games on the table. T

hen I said “yall can get a little bit of the snacks we have to save some for the other girls.” The lizeth got some of the apples and grapes. The apples were as red as a red ball and the grapes tasted like a candy. Hailey got some of the chips.

The chips where doritos,potato chips,and cheetos. Then I heard the doorbell and it was paris and angelina. Paris said “hey are we here late or early?” I said “no yall are on time yall can go in and get some snacks and relax” The girls went in and got some snacks. After 2 minutes the last girl was at the door. Shayenne was at the door I went to the door and said “hey and welcome you can go and get some snacks and relax i’ll be in there in a minute” She said “ok hurry SO WE CAN GET THIS PARTY STARTED!!!!”

Targeted at Target

This happened to me just a few days ago. I am a 23 year-old female with 2 adopted daughters: Alice, age 6 amd Lisa, age 10. One night, Lisa was having a sleepover with some friends and asked if we could go to Target to get some snacks. Target was the nearest grocery store so I decided “what the heck?” I loaded the girls in the car and drove off.

It was not very late at night but there were only a few cars in the parking lot. I assumed they belonged to the employees. We walked inside and headed towards the snack aisle. We walked through Girl’s clothing so I could look at some stuff for my daughters. That’s when I noticed an older-looking man near the girl’s underpants. I thought in my head: “What the hell?” but did not say anything out loud.

We started towards the food aisles and I noticed the man was following us, staring at my younger daughter with a very disturbing ear-to-ear grin. I turned around. Trying to hide my nerves, I stammered: c–can I help you, Sir?” No response. I picked up the pace into the snack aisle. Lisa started for the smartfood popcorn since that stuff is her life.

Fake friends

I’m alex I used to be a pretty laid back person but after this happened I normally stay inside

I was about 15 when this happened I was on the way back from my girlfriends party it was probably about 1 am I wasn’t drunk so I was in my car driving home and I started this car behind and I didn’t think anything of it until it started taking every single turn I took.

Its the next day now and i’m fixing the front door for my dad and as I am this woman comes up to me claiming she was my girlfriends friend and she was at the party last night and asked me if I could help her with something at her house I said yes so I followed her back to this weird looking abandoned house but I still go inside I turn around to see if she’s still following me but she was gone so I started thinking to myself to get out of there bit when I tried the door it was jammed

I began hearing laughter coming from the basement so I ran for the back door which was thankfully open I ran out of the back and all he way I was pretty out of breath as you can guess but when I got home I called the cops they checked out the place they found nothing but a knife and a machete I hope those guys are now in prison.

Creepy Movie Patron

When I was in my senior year of high school, I took a part-time job working at the local movie theater. It paid reasonably well, enough for me to have a bit of pocket money, and despite the management’s strange stance that high schoolers had nothing better to do in their spare time than work, I did like the job. My coworkers were nice, I got to watch bits of the latest films during my breaktime, and I always came home smelling like popcorn.

It was also my very first foray into the wild and maddening world of customer service, and as the months passed, I saw more than my fair share of rude, dense, uncooperative, and downright dickish customers. Most of them have faded into the background over time, but there was one experience I had that rattled me so badly that I still recall it now.

During the run of “What Lies Beneath” (a ghost story/murder mystery movie starring Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer), I got promoted, so to speak, from concessions to box office, so I was learning how to work the computer and sell tickets. There was no monetary raise involved; the additional training just meant that the management could swap people around to cover different jobs as needed.
