*the following scenarios may or may not have happened to me personally.
Never allow a young man to blindfold you on a first date
even if he seems to be a safe and trustworthy individual.
Never follow a strange woman through a secret door,
up a staircase, into a strange room just to get a $18 Prada bag,
Especially if she intends to lock the door behind her.
Never model for an "up-and-coming photographer"
whose business card information is scribbled on the back of someone else's business card.
Never follow a librarian into their office to answer a "question"
when they have a knife sitting precariously on their desk.
Consider yourself warned,
And just to be safe, you may want to invest in some brass knuckles and/or pepper spray.
