I was running an errand on my way home from work. I walked out of a store and got in my car. A woman a few parking spaces away from me comes walking briskly towards my car holding up an index finger as if to say 'wait'. She gets to my car and I roll down my window a little less than halfway. She was dark skinned and had a very heavy accent. I thought maybe she was asking for directions. I listened hard trying to understand what she was saying. It seemed that she was asking me if I had seen her son and she was describing a black and red zipper sweatshirt. I said I haven't seen him. She asked where I was from. I name my town. She said she wants to know where I was from like Russia or what country. ( Interesting that my Father is 100% Russian) By now I'm confused and am beginning to think I'm dealing with someone not in touch with reality. She was ranting. Now comes the scare. She asks me if I were Muslim or Christian. My heart starts to pound, my mind began racing, I froze. She repeats the question. I roll up my window and drive away. But I stay in the parking lot and call 911. I keep thinking of the shooter who asked if the victims were Muslim or Christian before he shot them. I get dispatch and tell her my story. As I'm talking, Crazy Lady gets in he car and proceeds to head out. I pull up behind her to get the license plate number for the police. Crazy Lady thinks I want to continue talking to her. She pulls a U-turn and I drive to the front of the store where there were people. Crazy Lady circles around and starts to leave again just as 2 officers pulled in. One followed Crazy Lady and the other stops to talk to me. They said they were very familiar with her. She obviously needs help but they can't commit her until she broke dangerous to herself or others. I thanked the officer, wished him safety and we went our separate ways. I'm telling you, though, I was scared poopless!!! For a few moments I thought she was going to shoot me.
