What the Hell?

Posted on Tue, Oct 18, 2011 at 12:22 PM

So a friend of mine tells me she went out on the weekend and met some really cool people. Ok. She goes on to tell me that her and 9 other people were playing drinking games and decided on the 'Never Have I Ever' game. You drink if you've done whatever the asker says. The question "Never have I ever taken someone home from the bar/downtown?" Everyone except her take a drink. Ok cool, this is not the part I have the issue with, you want to take someone home, you're an adult and can make these decisions. What I do have a problem with is the 9 other people noting my friend hadn't taken a drink and telling her "what?!?! I can't believe you haven't, you're not some kinda prude are you?!?" Ok, let's remove sex from the equation. Taking someone from a bar home, that I just met, probably in an intoxicated state letting them know where I live is NOT SAFE.

I'm not sure what it is about Nova Scotia that thinks that crime doesn't happen here. I'm not saying to think EVERYONE is evil, but lock your door, and don't take strangers home. How hard is that to comprehend? You know what, it probably is the liquor that makes people do foolish things... but it's always the liquor right? And to insinuate there's something wrong with her... I just can't anymore. —Baffled
