Y is for YIKES!
Tis the season being on your guard when you are out!
This is a true story that happened last night and thankfully no one was hurt:
After church we head out for a light meal at one of several area places to dine....my son chose Taco Bell this time.
While waiting for the food, my son commented on the numbers next to the door (feet markers). We explained that should there be a robbery it helps the police guestimate the height of someone running out the door. Our son then commented that why are they not on all the doors? So stumped us he did! Aside from commenting that robbers would run out the door by us, we did not know.
10 minutes later a huge commotion by the drive thru window that was over in less than 5 seconds.. A robber with a gun and wearing a ski mask half jumped into the drive thru window and grabbed the cashier's drawer then jumped back out and ran away... (presumably to a waiting get away car). Again no one was hurt. I called 911 immediately (before the employees were able to pull themselves together).
Who knows why they chose this bizarre way to rob a restaurant? But our point here is to be on your guard and keep an eye on the surroundings. Just be on the lookout for anything that looks out of the ordinary. No one would have predicted this one, but keep a battle plan in your mind just in case you need to execute it.
Safe and secure travels during the season to you and yours!
