News, but not the serious kind
Skirting the urban enemy…
It is late, you’re a woman alone, and bad guys are chasing you. You round a corner and whip up your skirt. Instantly, you’re camouflaged as a vending machine, and the attackers keep going. Maybe this urban ploy will work, but you should consider:
- What happens if the attackers, cranky because you got away, stop to enjoy a refreshing soft drink?
- What about the roaming gangs that rob vending machines? Think they’ll be happy to find you?
- Imagine the embarrassment if you think you’re wearing your vending machine skirt, but you’re really not.
