5 Things I Learned from Criminal Minds

criminal minds

Criminal Minds is one of my all time favorite shows. I used to watch a lot with my mom and still do when I visit Idaho! Recently I’ve been having my own marathon of it thanks to Netflix and this lead to me thinking about things I’ve learned from this show over the years. Here’s just 5 that, if you watch the show too, I’m sure you’ll agree with!

|O N E | Never open the door for someone you don’t know! Look out the window, peephole, etc. If you don’t know the person, don’t open the door. If the bad guy is going to break in, make them work for it, call the police- or just call Derek Morgan. Leading to…

| T W O | Find a guy who talks to you like Derek Morgan talks to Penelope Garcia. Oh, for a love like that. And oh, for Shemar Moore to be anywhere near me. He’s so pretty.

| T H R E E | ALWAYS CHECK THE BACK SEAT! I mean I really do this though. Criminal Minds taught me this, and so did my mother. Every time you get in the car- look in the back seat before you get in. That’s where creepers and bad guys hide before they get you when you get in the car.

|F O U R | Don’t help men load things into their creeper vans. They don’t actually need your help, they are just criminals trying to kidnap or kill you!

Actually, just stay far, far away from creeper vans.

Creeper van example, for your reference.

| F I V E |ย It is totally possible to hack into absolutely anything ever- so if you don’t want Penelope Garcia to know what you’re doing on the internet/your phone/in life, you probably just shouldn’t do it. Be a good person and the BAU will find you if needed and not get too up in your business.

Now, wheels up in 30! Let’s go.

Do you watch Criminal Minds? Are you in love with Morgan like I am?

    I LOVE Criminal Minds, too! I’ve learned to basically give the hairy eyeball to pretty much everyone in my life from the librarian to the cable repair person to the neighbors. Everyone’s a suspect! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just yesterday I tried finding Shemar Moore saying “What’s up, Baby Girl” for a ringtone for my phone! I would definitely pay for it, but alas, I failed at my task…
