It was a month ago; a woman went on a social media platform and shared a story about what happened to her while she was at a mall. “I was in a potentially dangerous situation today,” reads the caption of her post. “I knew what to do from a previous post on here, and the comments I read, and I just want to say thank you.”

It started when the woman decided to go to the nearby mall in order to use the bathroom before her drive home. As she walked in, she noticed a man that was walking in the opposite direction, but then saw her and turns around. The woman became suspicious and suddenly recollected a comment that she once read on Reddit that asked to never go into a public bathroom when being followed.
As she was walking, she remembered another piece of safety advice asking that if you’re not sure you’re being followed, you should go into a store that the suspected person would not typically have interest in. She noticed a dollhouse store and went inside. The suspicious man followed her.
The woman then rushed back towards the exit of the store and, she called her husband, who was waiting for her in the car. “The man in the yellow mask turned and matched my pace toward the exit,” the user narrates. She put her phone on speaker and loudly said that she was being followed by the man behind her. After hearing that, her husband got out of the car and came to the mall.
