Several years ago, after a walk with an old friend, I got into my car. Then he stood next to the driver’s side door while we chatted a little longer through the open car window. A group of teenagers with guns showed up and wanted not just the car, but us too. Through some fast thinking and good luck, my friend and I managed to get away within about 15 or 20 minutes. I was badly bruised and scraped from tumbling out of a moving car, but we were more or less okay.
As I rode to the hospital in a police car, the (male) officer driving the car told me that women are far more likely than men to be carjacked “since women take too long to get on their way; they always have to play with the radio or put on lipstick or something.” I guess it’s #MFIF
