A Little Female Perspective

Posted on Mon, Jul 4, 2011 at 2:52 PM

While walking home Canada Day around 3 am alone a SUV stopped right in front of me, so I crossed behind it to the other side of the road. Then the guy asks me where whatever street is, and asked if I wanted a drive home. I said no, rudely because I was freaked out, then he calls me a bitch and leaves. Not getting into strangers' cars at 3 am doesn't make me a bitch. So, to all the guys out there who honestly just want to help out and offer a safe drive home to a lone girl they see walking home in the middle of the night, my advice is don't. She, quite likely, will feel safer if you leave her be. However, there is no harm in flagging down, paying for, and sending over a cab if the mood so strikes you. Keep it classy, Halifax. —Just Saying
