“Hello?” she asked the stranger at her window.
“Excuse me young lady, I don’t mean to bother you but I just wanna know how your feet smell,” he asked her. Instead of answering, she quickly rolled her window back up.
“I’m having a panic attack,” she added in the comments.
Commenters expressed their concern for @insanesluug in the comments. Many also offered advice for anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation.
“Ladies ALWAYS LOCK YOUR DOORS AND HAVE YOUR WINDOWS UP WHEN SITTING IN YOUR CAR,” one person advised.
“Be careful next time and don’t roll down your window,” another added. “Please stay safe.”
People had many questions for @insanesluug — Why did she roll down her window? What did she buy at CVS? — and she answered all of those in a follow-up video.
She explained that the reason she rolled down the window was because she thought she had left her purchase in the store and that a CVS employee was coming over to bring her her bag. Obviously, that was not the case.
She also explained that after she rolled up her window, the stranger “turned around and started running away.” After that, she started up her car and left.
“Glad everybody got a laugh out of it. It was terrifying,” she said.
