killers in the backseat
i went away for the weekend and came back late last night. i got into my car which was left parked there. about three minutes after i got into the car, i turned around at a red light to look in the backseat to see if anyone was in the backseat. i don't know how anyone could really get into my car but i didn't want to take any chances. you hear all these crazy stories (although half of them aren't true, like this one) about mass murderers who hide in backseats of cars. it's one of those irrational fears that i usualy don't have. my friend was just telling me that everytime she goes into the bathroom she checks behind the shower curtain to make sure no one is hiding there. i never do that. i don't have to double and triple check the lock on the front door before i go to sleep either. but at two am, when everything is very dark and cold and quiet, you never know what dangers are lurking in the backseat of your car.
