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 4, I was playing in our apartment playground and a car pulled up and a guy asked me if I wanted candy. I said no and ran back home.

Once when I was 6 i was walking from my school to my grandmas (3blocks) and a guy came and walked up to his fence and whistled at me, when I looked back, he was shaking his penis at me

When I was 15, my cousin and friend were out riding around in her car and went to the local teen hangout at the pier. It was very dark and no one was their so we left. As we topped the hill a car was sitting in the middle of the road, we just went in the otherlane and passed them. They started following us and my cousin started going faster. They continued to speed up as well. Next thing I know they shot out the back window and glass went everywhere. Thank god my cousin went a lot faster I thought we were going to crash, but they continued to follow us to my home where we pulled in quickly and they blew past my house and were shooting more. Called the cops and they had several reports of similar activity in our area but never figured out who it was.

In 2002 my gf and I went to virginia shopping (we live in MD) . This is something we always did. Well we did our shopping and it was uneventful, We got home and we were watching TV and their was another shooting at the Michaels store (where we just were at) by the DC Snipers. (at the broadcast they weren't sure who did it but later determined it was them) We left the store right before the shooting and knew nothing about it until we were home. It was so scary to think they were in the parking lot with us and we barely missed being shot in that store that day.

Yep I saw Herzog that day. He scared us so bad just by looking at us we didn't leave our driveway on our bikes for a month!

When I was little my brother and I would ride down the street.  Sometimes we would see a car in the middle of this cow field and we found that really strange because well, who tends to cows with a car?  It really stuck with me seeing this totally out of place car in this cow field.  One day we rode by while he was opening the gate to the property.  We didn't like the look he gave us and decided to go home.  It was like he was trying to decide if we were a threat.  Then years later in that same spot they started digging.  A mass murderer had been dumping bodies in the well on the property.  Seeing his picture now and knowing how close I was to that mass murder terrifies me.  I mean we were probably 8 and 11 and there was nobody else around besides us and him for miles.

So yeah, thankfully it wasn't bad but it could have been very bad.

Yeah when I saw his face on tv it all came back. I can still see the look on his face. He looked really angry that we had seen him and scared at the same time. There was a lot of terrifying emotions on his face. I thought for sure we saw something we shouldn't have and he was going to hurt us.

My MIL was shopping at the grocery store with my brother in law when he was around 1 1/2 years old (47 years ago). She turned to get something off the shelf and all of the sudden a group of Mexicans (its not racist, it's just a fact) got in between her and the baby, surrounded the shopping cart and tried to take him out of it. She gave one of those 'looks that can kill' and they all just backed away and left. He didn't remember, but it freaked her out.
