I finished work and wandered across to the undercover car park, in broad daylight, to find someone jacking my car. I dialled 000 on my mobile and walked over to the guy and told him I had my mobile in one hand calling the police and steel caps on both feet...

He got out, I got in and I told him if he came near my car or me again I would kill him. Then I told him to get lost and that he belongs in jail.

And off I drove!

Only now I release that I'm tiny and he was huge and he could have stabbed or shot me. Hmmmm.

I think that was a pure adrenalin response, AE. If it ever happens again, let him take the car. Your life is far more important than a car. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

You go girl http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Btw, few car thieves want a confrontation, they just want the money from the car. Carjackers on the other hand are robbers.

Holy geez girl, that was pretty brave! That's awesome! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

I don't know if I'd know what to do in that situation. I would be scared to confront him, but I'd definately want to do the same thing you did! lol.

Glad he didn't shoot you!! :eek:

No offense, but Janny is right. There is a reason that the censor system exists. I can understand the fact that you were upset ('cause the same thing had happened to me too), but if you like to swear, please allow the software to block the words. We are very sensitive to the things that are posted in our T&C http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

proud of ya http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif Duffman- she wears shoes by Louis Vuitton! I doubt if she'd want them stuck up someone's rear! :D

Andromeda- Thank goodness you're alive! You shouldn't have gone up to them, just next time if someting like this happens again, heaven forbid, just call the cops and stay away, like you said--- they may have had a gun, which would make you powerless. Be careful! It would be awful if something happenend to you. :( Good thing your guardian angel has a full time job! ;) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

AE. Nerdalicious. Mind your language on this forum. Our T&C's exist for the benefit of everyone. Please DO NOT try to bypass our censor system.

Not to start anything, but I find uncensored (cept maybe porn links) forums to be better overall, maybe that is just my unwillingness to shield children from things like truth, life, and reality.

Perhaps our laws on film ratings and violence before the water-shed should also be dropped, allowing the brutal aspects of life to assault our children, Eric? :rolleyes:

We do what we can, until a minor is able to function on its own axis of exploration.

You can't keep them in a bubble forever, so why pretend you can? Rather prepare them for then life they will have instead of letting them imagine a dream world.

That is the most ridiculous statement I have ever heard you make, and on that basis what a model parent you would make!

Do you know what the leading cause of teen suicide is?

Reality.

We'll continue to protect the younger patrons of this community as best we can, in order to create and maintain a safe and secure environment. I appreciate there will come a time when the harder faces of reality will present itself, but I donít think imposing that on a 13-year-old with a fondness of computer video-games and an abundance of innocence is appropriate here.

andromeda_eats
01-12-04, 00:49
Thats why we have the rating system, Eric. Younger children are shielded from violence, horror, adult scenes and explicit language. Life may involve these things, but its not appropriate for younger children. Children have an innocence that they deserve to ride out till the bitter end. If you take that away from them then it would be a horrible world.

Santa Clause may not exsist, but we still humour kids about him.

Again, I apologise for crossing the line.

Protecting them within reason is fine, and its natural...but people these days are trying to put them all in bubbles and it makes me sick.

Children these days are learning these "bad" words at a much more younger age. Even my friends(including I) learned it at a younger age I was atleast in the 4th grade when I accidently let one slip. So what I must have been at least 9 or 10 seeing thats in almost 15 now.

Well anyway back to the subject Andromeda Im glad you safe girl. I would do the same thing though but just because I would be mad and when im mad I don't think at all. I feel on top of the world when im mad. Kinda of a rush but Its not a really good thing.
