I'm putting this in P&C because I'm not sure where else to put it.
I was at the mall recently, close to the front of the mall, strapping my son into his carseat when a guy walks up. I immediately faced him and held my hand out for him not to come any closer. (I have heard entirely too many stories of the things that happen in parking lots). He told me that his car wouldn't start and asked for a jump. I told him I didn't have cables (even though I did), and he said he had them. His hood was popped, and a girl was in the car.
I told him to go to his car and when I was ready, I'd drive over and he could jump his car. I did, his car started after a minute, but I didn't get out of the car. My friend said this was dangerous to help him, and that I should have driven off. Considering my doors were locked, do you think what I did was risky?

No, The first the safety class would be is to say no. Being nice is what women can get in trouble with, it's ok to say no and not put you or the baby in harms way, one never knows what someones intentions are, better be safe than sorry.

No, I would not because I'm an old lady.
Also for you that say she was safe in her car, what would you do if the guy did not close the hood after you started his car? You would still have to get out of your car to close it.
