One day at a shopping mall in the afternoon, a woman was coming out of the mall from a shopping spree. She was in a happy mood. She had gotten to her car and loaded her stuff that she had bought into her trunk. When she was done loading, she shut the door of her trunk and she saw an old lady standing by the passenger side of her car.

The old woman said “Would you be a darling and give me a lift home? I don’t have a car and I was walking all day.” The woman said “I’d be happy to.” So she unlocked the door for the old woman.
As she started to make her way around the car to the driver’s side, she started to feel uncomfortable. So when she got in the car, she looked in her purse and said “Darn, I can’t find my credit card. I’m going inside to see if anybody found it.” The old woman said “I’ll wait for you here.”

The woman left to go look for help. Then she found a security guard and told him the situation. They went back to the woman’s car and the passenger door was wide open. On the seat of the car was a shopping bag that the old woman had been carrying. Inside of the bag was the old woman’s dress and a gray haired wig, along with a huge butcher’s knife, a video camera, and a roll of duct tape.

          It seems you’re the stupid one if you prefer overused references to saying something new.

    • Old Lady

      if there is one constant in the whole metaphysical of the universe, it is that any urban legend, from hook hand to the hash slinging slasher, has some truth.
      ted bundy (serial killer) got his targets by faking to have a broken arm and asking women to help him get something into his car. they were powerless against him when he suddenly sprung his trap.
      so the "old lady" may indeed be true. to a point.

    I like it for one main reason; it could really happen.
    Otherwise, many other, better stories are around.

      It could really happen how? Why would the rapist/murderer not only leave his stuff there, but also actually put down his costume and added it to the things he is leaving ebhind?

    It left me baffled, in the sense that I still thought that there was some sort of actual story to be told. What is this? There’s no plot, or if there is one it’s malformed and unfinished. It wasn’t even creepy. We get the fact that the old lady wasn’t actually an old lady, and then it ends. I can’t even call this pasta. This is more like uncooked spaghetti.

  • Hi, dont turn around

    If your trying to be unorigenal on perpose then well done, this pasta is over used, I like to call these pastas “red riding hood” pastas, The wolf (killer) takes the guise of the grandma (unsuspected character) to kill the hooded girl (protagonist).

    you arnt worth my signature

    Why would he leave his wig and dress in a bag in the seat?

    Now he’s gotta go buy replacements.
