Some men in South Africa will try just about anything to try and score with a woman. But some tactics are just the worst, like yesterday’s incident for instance. It was early in the morning and I was walking to school when all of a sudden a BMW pulled over just next to me on the street. A white guy rolled down the window. He was wearing shades and looked very muscular, like a rugby player. “Do you know where I could possibly find the nearest Checkers or Pick ‘n Pay supermarket?” he asked. I stopped and tried to think of where he could find these supermarkets in Universitas, Bloemfontein. And as I was busy trying to think I noticed that the man’s trouser was unzipped. And I could tell that this was no accident because his member was just sticking out of his pants. The first thought that came into my mind was ‘what the hell?’
I just couldn’t believe what my eyes were seeing. It suddenly hit me that this guy clearly had something else in mind other than just getting some directions from me. And I think he may have thought that because I am a student I would fall for his dirty tricks. He knows that students are always broke most of the time and will do just about anything for some cash. In fact some girls end up prostituting themselves for some money. But I unfortunately for him I am not that kind of girl who would sell herself to the devil for some quick cash. I respect myself far too much to ever stoop that low.
I wanted so badly to tell this guy to get that ugly thing out f my face. But instead I pretended not to notice his unzipped pants. I looked him straight in the eyes and tried not to laugh as I finally told him that in Universitas we only had a Spar. “The nearest Pick n Pay is somewhere at Memosa Mall,” I said. The guy looked at me for a minute and said, “Are you sure?” And I answered yes. I looked at the time on my cell phone and noticed that I was actually getting late for my first class of the day. I adjusted my school bag and got ready to run to school. But the man wasn’t ready to let me leave just yet, and I was really getting annoyed with him now. “Can I offer you a lift to somewhere?” He asked. “You think I am that stupid?” I thought to myself. Some men clearly have no limits when it comes to sex. I said no to his offer and ran straight to class.
