A Proposition You Can Accept

, , , | Hopeless | June 3, 2016

(I am walking home one day from work when a car slows down next to me. The driver catcalls, offers a ride, everything short of a proposition. Eventually he drives off leaving me thoroughly creeped out. A moment later, a car full of young women slows beside me.)

Driver: “Hey, we saw that guy bothering you. Are you okay?”

Me: “No, not really. I’m worried he’s going to follow me home and my roommate won’t be back for an hour.”

Driver: “Hop in. We’re going to [Restaurant]. You can come!”

(And that’s how I ended up at a fast food restaurant with a bunch of strangers, sharing shrimp poppers and laughing. They got me home safely and I’ll never forget their kindness!)
