Crazy lady tries to force my wife to get into her car at Walmart yesterday

Dallas, Texas
September 2, 2017 11:13am CST
We had to park on the opposite end of the Walmart on Wheatland Road yesterday because the front east side entrance next to the lawn and garden center was boarded off and closed for repairs. By the time we got paid for our things at the register, I walked out and told my wife I would go get the car from the far other end of the parking lot and drive it up front to pick her up, but meantime, this black lady started talking to her, and I didn't pay any attention. I figured it was just a person making idle conversation with her. If I had known what happened I would have made that crazy lady go away. By the time I drove back to pick my wife up she told me the about what happened, I was about as angry at that lady as I could be. She actually tried to get her to go into her car. She was telling her how much she liked her jewelry and asked her if she wanted her to just forget about going home with her husband, myself, and just get in my car and I will take you home. That was one of the most serious and crazy things I have heard of happening to my wife. I can't stand her being left alone at this store without me by her side. I am glad I pulled over at that moment. The crazy lady wandered off immediately. My wife was upset by the ordeal. I was just plain mad at myself for letting her be alone at that Walmart. I think that store has too many thugs and crazy people out there. Earlier that morning at around 6 AM, a crazy man drove his car into the east entrance and got out shouting, "I am am on a quest. He got out of the car and tried to grab the keys from a lady standing and pushed her down on the floor and was tackled by those 5 other Walmart employees and held there until the police and fire emergency people came. She was sent to the hospital the lady that got pushed down by that nut job and he insisted he needed those car keys for his Quest. Another lady had an asthma attack as a result of anxiety from the assault. Both women were taken to the emergency room at a local hospital. The lady who was shoved and injured was an employee of that store. I got my information by actually talking to people who work there and were witnesses to the events. I see that Fox news has a different slant on the story. I think that my story on this is better than the one Fox did about this occurrence. I was there, I spoke to people who were there at that time. I know things because I know how to ask questions and get the facts.

Yes, and a few weeks ago, this dude was blasting his trombone at the back of that same Walmart and I made a comment about it to a lady in the parkinglot and she open fired words at me in anger, "So? Whats wrong with that?" I don't understand why she was angry or defended by what I said, I only said, "That guy on the trombone can be heard across the entire parking lot."

@amadeo , He was a crazy man. He said "I am on a quest." That sound like he might have been mental.

Wow so glad she is okay. That is scary. Best to avoid that place or never leave her side when you go there. You just never know.

I will not let her go there alone ever again, and I think we will go to the other location some 4 or 5 miles southeast of that location and it is a newer store and they have better security there also.

I avoid Walmart on weekends, not due to danger, due to far too many people. If I need anything on weekends, I head to Target which has higher prices, but am willing to pay a bit more to maintain my sanity.

This is fearsome indeed. I had a lousy experience like that, while I was traveling in auto ..a tad late in the evening. I had to scream and ask the auto guy to stop ..or I will be throwing my hands about...the guy believed me and stopped.

That was really dangerous, and it's really a good thing that you arrived just in time for your wife. We don't have Walmart here in my country but those kind of things doesn't happen often in our malls here.

It seems I am living in a time when crazy is the new normal for people acting badly towards others in the market place.

@lookatdesktop I think those kind of people need professional help. Maybe some do intend to harm people for personal gains, but I believe some are just in the state of delusion.

@lookatdesktop Does the location have surveillance cameras? It sounds like your wife needs to have a concealed carry! Sorry that this happened.

I mean, it sounds scary and weird. But wouldn't be something to get angry over, not for me at least. Cause they didn't take anything from her.

Thanks. Well, my wife told me she would have slapped her silly if she tried to force her in that car. Of course I would have reported her had I got a look at what she looked like but it all happened too fast and I wasn't paying enough attention to details.

Well as bad as that was at least your wife is a grown-up and knows better than to take such a lady seriously. However suppose she had approached a teen or child they could have kidnapped them and goodness knows what would have happened.

I left it alone. I might should have reported her but she had disappeared when I got to the entrance where my wife was waiting for me to pick her up in our car.

eh what a disastrous stories, but it is not surprise, at every market you are likely meet all sort of people, so the only thing is to be extra carefully when you or your wife or both is going to the market.

I try to stick by her as often as possible, and I never let her go out on her own. It's just not the same as it once was back in the day.

Oh gosh, that is serious. Did you call the cops? I certainly would have! If they tried that with your wife, they will probably try that with some other unsupecting person and they might not be as fortunate as your wife.

My wife didn't tell me the facts of the situation until we had got out of the lot and onto the main road because we had to make a pit stop at the gas pump and wait in line for over 30 minutes to get gas and it was then she told me what happened. I would have told security ASAP if she had told me sooner. By then the lady was long gone.

@lookatdesktop I am glad that she is ok and that you showed up when you did. The crazy woman might have tried to force her into a car and just take her without the convincing. Too scary!

Oh man that is some kind of scary. Glad you pulled up when you did, no telling what would have happened.

Exactly. It might have turned out being a horror story you would see on the evening news but glad things did not turn out that way. For this reason I am never going to let my wife go to that store without me by her side from start to finish. It is getting bad you know.

@lookatdesktop Yes it sure is. I have heard that the nut cases watch for women alone at Walmart and target them, that's why as soon as I get in my car I lock it.
