Would you like to come to dinner with me? 
8th-Jul-2010 11:06 pm
Worked till 7:10pm. That's really odd for a non-event work day. I'm usually out the door by 5pm. As I'm walking down the street into town to catch a bus home, a man paces me.

Man: "Hi, whatcha doing tonight?"
Me: *looks up from my mobile in surprise* "Erm... going home?"
Man: "Ah. How about dinner?"
Me: "Dinner? Errr... I'm good, I guess."
Man: "I meant, would you like to have dinner with me?"
Me: "Huh??"

I look at him carefully as we cross the street. He's in his late 40s, clean and not drunk. His hands are casually stuffed in his pants pockets and he's wearing a tweed jacket over a blue shirt.

Man: "I unexpectedly had to extend my trip a day and now I'm spending one more night in Brisbane."
Me: "Oh, I'm sorry to hear that." (don't ask me why I said that)
Man: "So would you like to accompany me for dinner?"
Me: "No, I'm good, thanks. It's been a long day and I really want to just go to bed."

I was stunned and immediately called the SO to relate the encounter. He said it was a good thing I didn't go, despite his believable story. He might slip a rohypnol into my drink and kidnap me.

Seriously?! Why the hell would anyone kidnap me?

But yah, here's a first: I've been asked out to dinner by a perfect stranger.

He actually looked pretty normal.

Meh, it's all good. I stayed in my ex-boss's restaurant for awhile until I felt sure I wasn't being followed.

Woah that's a dodgy guy.

You get all kinds in the city. :p

Let's see; you're young, pretty, smart... totally kidnappable material.

Pffft, not that young, not that smart and not pretty by any stretch of the imagination.

Plus weighing 60kg makes for not so easy pick-up-and-go kidnap victim.

Maybe he's been working out?
