Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I was ALMOST abducted from the Bronx Zoo at age 3......

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I was with my mom, her boyfriend & his son. The four of us were walking, and her BF was holding his sons hand & my hand. My mom said she bent down to tie her shoes, when she was done she looked up at her BF & noticed I wasn't with him. She asked where I was - he said he thought my mom grabbed my hand so he let go of me (didn't even bother to turn, look & make sure) - my mom panicked & she said something told her to run to the the area where you left the zoo -- & sure enough she saw a man holding my hand, trying to walk out of the exit with me.

She screamed for him to stop, screamed for help & two men ran up and grabbed the man. He told police that the he found a little girl & was escorting her to lost & found so she could find her mommy!! (sure you were, that's why you were trying to exit the zoo with a crying little girl)

Anything crazy ever happen in your life that could've ended up a lifetime movie?


*I actually experienced something worse than almost being abducted at the zoo ::

When I was 7, I remember being woken up in the middle of the night by my mother, she grabbed me and put her finger over her mouth (as to say SSSHHHH - be quiet) we ran and hid under our kitchen table (it was a round glass table but we had a super long table clothe (it almost reached the ground) anyway we were hiding under the table & I saw two pairs of black boot walking around our apartment (it scared the shit out of me)

They were there for what felt like forever (my mom said it was like 5/10 mins) - crazy shit is they didn't ransack our apartment or even take anything.

We moved to Staten Island like a day or two later.

Later on in life I found out that my bio dad was into some shit he shouldn't have been into & those guys were there looking for him. My mom & dad hadn't been together since I was like 1 - but it was the last known address they knew he lived at.

when I was maybe 18 months my mother was grocery shopping with me. she turned around and reached up on a shelf to get something down and when she turned back around I was gone. she ran towards the front of the store screamin going nuts and saw lady trying to walk out the store with me. the lady said that she thought that I was beautiful and I reminded her of her baby. my mother did press charges and come to find out the lady didn't have any kids. I don't know anything else about the case

Why were you selling tacos in a big building in town?

Quoting Anonymous:

One time, I was selling tacos in a big building in my town. I was riding up the elevator and as the door shut, a guy ran in. I noticed that he was hitting the stop button on the elevator, so I hit the next level and got out. When I started up the stairs, he started running after me. I ran all the way back to an office where I told some ladies that a man was chasing me. I had to go to the police department and fill out a report.

No. Although, grandma almost lost me at 4 at Coney Island and mom lost me at the crowded Puerto Rican day parade when I was 10. I was a smart kid though. I made sure to stay put until I was found rather than wander off alone.
