Last night I had a rather unusual occurrence happen. I received a phone call, in the middle of the night, from an unknown number. I was sleeping at the time so the phone call went to voicemail. When I awoke in the morning, I listened to the message that was left on my voicemail. The voice was unfamiliar and the person was saying some things that were clearly inappropriate to say to someone who you do not know. I was pretty disturbed by this and I racked my brain trying to figure out who this could have been.
I sat and thought about it for a while. I am almost single, kind of starting to date and I thought, maybe I gave someone my number. But deep down I knew I hadn’t. One thing I did know was that my cell phone number is listed all over the place. As an agent, there’s really nothing I can do about that.
I thought about what could happen if someone stalked me or tried to attack me. How would I defend myself? I have some kung fu skills that I learned by watching movies and I obviously know how to kick someone in their “manhood”. But what if none of these tactics worked?
I guess what I could do is be more cautious. I should probably consider carrying some mace or even get my conceal and carry as one person suggested.
Just a reminder that you should always be cautious of your surroundings. Always have a plan in case something could occur. Maybe as agents, we should all be required to take some sort of self-defense course. Be careful and be prepared!
