Fearful questions

It’s been a long time since I’ve asked questions, and I had these floating around in my mind. So anyway, I had some questions about how you, dear reader, deal with fear, or maybe the unexpected, in your world. There aren’t that many of them.  But maybe you might find the them interesting…


  1. Do you now, or have you ever, looked behind a closed shower curtain before using the bathroom?
  2. Do you look in your back seat — or taking it further, under your car — before getting in to drive?
  3. Do you have a safety ritual before going to bed at night? i.e. checking the doors, windows, locks, or setting an alarm…
  4. When you leave your house or car, do you check the locks more than once, or are you satisfied that you’ve locked the door the first time?
  5. Do you answer your phone if you don’t recognize the number? Why or why not?
  6. In what setting — urban/suburban/rural — would you feel the least comfortable walking alone? Does the time of day matter?
  7. If you found yourself walking alone, would you avoid small groups of suspicious-looking people? How about a singular suspicious looking person?
  8. flu_paranoia_447065Do you have a plan or way to determine if someone is following you or if someone is just walking behind you? What would you do if someone started following you?
  9. What would you do if you notice the same car driving behind you for a significant period of time?
  10. If you drove up to your house and the front door was standing open though you clearly remember closing and locking it, would you go inside?
  11. What would you do if you drove up to your house and found a stranger there, clearly waiting for you to come home?
  12. Do you have plans in place for emergencies (fire, flood, etc.)? Have you ever had to use them?
  13. Do empty parking lots/parking garages make you nervous?maxresdefault
  14. Do you tend to forward emails/messages that urge people to beware of this, that, or the other thing, or is Snopes.com (and similar sites) your friend?
  15. If you have a dog, or dogs, and they start barking at nothing you can see, does it make you anxious?
  16. Do you close your curtains at night?
  17. How do you feel about the state of humankind in general?
