44. The German Guest
There is a very persistent German guest where I work who keeps coming to the counter to ask me out for lunch. Seems pretty harmless but I have rejected him 14 times, including two times just today. Asides from the usual, “Nobody has to know” and the “Well, you can just say I happen to stumble upon you at (insert name) restaurant.”
When he first asked me out, he said he was new to my country and needed someone to bring him out to sightsee. Then, he said he wanted to bring me to a park to hike and go on a tree-top walk which provides a bird’s eye view of the forest from a suspension bridge. All that was going through my head was the number of ways he was gonna murder me, and probably push me off the bridge.
