Here’s how the rest of this went before the author deleted the whole thing (she does this frequently when she doesn’t like comments) I still had all this up when she deleted so I quickly copied it:
Katherine good call…
Diana very good call. Something’s amiss.
Rebecca Hulit I’m confused and must not be reading this story right though I’ve reread it several times:
1. You left the house heading to the church where Matt’s truck was parked.
2. At the church you see two men in a car and for some reason you either approached them or they approached you.
3. They apparently could not start their vehicle because they were out of gas.
4. The driver (I’m assuming it was the driver) said he had a girl with him and had no way to call help since they had no cell phones—
5. You gave them some gas (where you got it is not clear…maybe syphoned it from Matt’s truck?), but their vehicle still did not start.
6. The driver (I’m still assuming it was the driver) disappeared down the road so I’m guess he must have gotten out of his vehicle and started walking somewhere but you don’t know where?
—So far it sounds like you gave them gas but the car still wouldn’t start and now one of the men is gone so you walk over to the second person in the car (that you think is a female) to tell her you’ll go get gas and will be right back with it. That’s when you realize that the second person isn’t a girl but another guy and you realize the first guy was either lying (but of course he’s already gone) or that the second guy was holding back on the driver (who is now gone) and really does have a phone and he’s calling someone.
So my confusion is why you called the police?
If you gave them gas and the car still wouldn’t start, that’s not a reason to call the police.
If the ‘girl’ was really a ‘guy’ that’s not a reason either.
If they were parked in the church parking lot, that’s not a reason either.
What did these people do wrong or illegal? I don’t think I’m reading your
Katherine They were suspicious, probably going to break into places, they were up to something bad, got caught and made up a lie to make it sound like they were out of gas when they were up to no good.
Rebecca Hulit Wait a minute, sounds like paranoia to me. Just because you see a car with two people inside that you don’t know does not warrant calling the authorities. Unless there is a lot more to the story this sounds like profiling. These folks could just as easily been sitting there talking. UNLESS they called out for help or approached for a handout (which they may have but the story does not indicate this), then any other conversation and visual imagery might define something else. Not having a cell phone is not a crime, nor is NOT knowing your passenger has one (which sounds like what happened). The story is not clear so give me a break.
Christina You made a good call girl! No one that feels inclined to lie about something as simple as it being a man or woman with them should ever be trusted. You were kind enough to try and help, and he still felt the need to lie about that???? Was this by the house or at the church?
Rebecca Hulit I’m still confused guys. So much so that I thought there was something wrong with my brain so, without saying who wrote the story or any of the comments here I sent just the story to an unbiased party who does not know any of the parties: “Doesn’t make any sense to me either. I’m not even sure why they called the police unless they were suspicious about why they were hanging around the church.”
Angel Hey girl. Okay. Here is the run down. :o)
Rebecca Hulit YES please clarify so I know exactly what happened! Your story has me falling off a cliff Beautiful!
Angel On our road alone there have been over 5 robberies. Our house was broke into this past spring. The people were parked by our fence. It became suspicious when he disappeared and we were going to tell the girl we would go get gas. He was gone and the girl ended up being a guy. Matt had asked the guy who disappeared if they had a phone or new any numbers that we could call for them and he said that he did not know any numbers and they did not have their cell phones. Just last week a house up the road from us was robbed.
Angel Too many break in’s in our neighborhood and community.
Rose Think you did the right thing. If there’s nothing to hide then there is no reason the police should be feared. Plus the police can help them out if they need more help with their car. Good call.
Rebecca Hulit Okay now this is clearing the mud. Where did the guy who got out of the car go? Did he just open the door and get out while you were standing there talking to them? Did you see which direction? Did he ever say why he was leaving the car? Did you stay there until the police arrived?
Have you folks formed a neighborhood watch? If you have many break-ins then you need to get together with the police who can assist you informing watches. You need to take care of each other and not be standing alone. These kinds of watches do a lot to protect neighborhoods…...believe me, I know.
Angel We began to back out and we saw him dart down the road….so we turned on to the road and he was gone….we drove down the road and was NO WHERE. WE did not stay as the man in the car, when he noticed that I stopped and looked into the window, looked over, looked away and quickly closed his phone so we could not longer see his face.
Angel A lot of comments, going to remove…..but you can send me a message and I can get back to you. :O)
