I picked up a young lady at a closed gas station late tonight. It was an unusual location, you know, given that the gas station was closed. But she was on the phone with whoever called the ride, and she got in, we started driving - a fairly long drive. She was quite emotional, crying at times, and telling whoever was on the other end of the line that she wanted him to come back home several times. The person on the other end of the line was her boyfriend. He's out of state at the moment, and he'd called the ride for her. Eventually she hung up, and during the remainder of the ride, she told me about what had just happened to her.25 posts and 20 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
The city curfew had been lifted recently, and so she wanted to get out of the house and hang out with some people. She got in touch with a female friend of hers, who invited her to a small party in the 'hood. The friend was the only person that she knew at the party. The two of them showed up, started drinking, and apparently there was a game of "drunken Uno".
But the vibe got really weird as the two were the only girls there. The guys (it sounded like there were about 4 of them) started making passes at my rider and touching her inappropriately. When she made it clear that she wanted none of it, one of the guys threatened to kill her. I'm not entirely sure what happened next, but somehow, she got away, and took off running down the street, and kept running until she was sure she had gotten away, eventually stopping at the gas station and calling her mother and boyfriend.
The mother wants to call the police tomorrow. (I'm not sure why they would want to wait.)
The strangest thing of all to me, is what she said about her female friend. Through all this, you might be wondering what the friend was doing. apparently - nothing. In response to the situation, the friend said she thought my rider was "more drunk" than she was - as if anything that happened would have been ok with just a bit more alcohol. In fact, my rider came to the conclusion that the entire situation was a setup courtesy of the "friend". Had things gone down just slightly differently, she'd have gotten too drunk, passed out, and likely been gang raped.

Oh, I'm probably making as much or more than I would have made this time last year (start of summer). I'm not quite sure I understand the solution there. I still haven't received my stimulus check.

I think I got mine? I've been hearing $1200 thrown around but about $1600 showed up in my account from a source I don't recognize and I've been very suspicious of it, but it did allow me to fill my emergency fund back up to $1000 where It should be, so I can focus on other small debts I have now.
I hope you get yours soon
