(I am a tourist, visiting Rome. The city’s metro lines are far from some attractions I wanted to go to, so I sat down and opened my map to plot the most efficient walking route possible. Note: I have also been told that there are a lot of con artists around and not to accept assistance from strangers offering to help.)

Stranger: *walking to me and sitting down next to me* “Hi, where are you from?”

Me: “Singapore.”

Stranger: “Oh, I’m from Italy.”

Me: *ignores him*

Stranger: “I want to be your friend.”

Me: *ignores him

Stranger: “I can be a good friend. Where are you going? I can help.”

Me: *points in a random direction* “There.”

Stranger: “I’d like to be friends with you. Can we be friends?”

Me: *fed up and deciding to leave* “No, I have enough friends.”

(I got up and crossed the road. Luckily, he didn’t follow me!)
