When I was on my way home yesterday a girl asked to ‘borrow’ my bike. A strange thing to be sure. I told her no, because I wanted to get home, and walked away.
Afterwards I was thinking why did I do that? Its highly unlikely that she was going to steal the bike. I couldn’t help thinking of a line from Friends ‘Mental note: If Jill Goodacre offers you gum, you take it. If she offers you mangled animal carcass, you take it.’ http://tinyurl.com/ptypren
I didn’t know this girl and the request caught me off guard. She would likely have just ridden it to the end of the street and back.
It was probably for the best though. She was likely a little tipsy and was probably wearing heals – not the best combination for a bike.
