Adam and Betty
This internet user shares their experience with their two internet friends ‘Adam and Betty’ from Livejournal. Betty was the same in real life as she was online, but Adam was a different story. They said, “the first night we met up, we were going to karaoke. Adam and Betty would drive to my house, meet my mom, and pick Twin and I up to go to the karaoke bar. Betty doesn’t drink, so she’d drive the rental car.” It sounds like a great, safe plan. There’s no way the evening could take a turn for the worse, right? Wrong. That’s not what happened here.
At first, it seems great they were able to meet up in real life, but it didn’t end well. “They knocked. I opened the door. Missy, my elderly terrier mutt who I love so much, immediately made friends with Betty. Betty walked all the way in, backing Missy up, and then Adam walked in. It was like a switch had flipped. Miss Dog lost. Her. Sh*t. She did the “I am going to kill you” bark – hackles raised, tail tucked between legs, snarling, snapping, and it sounded like she was screaming!”
Never ignore a dog’s intuition. They know exactly what’s going on and can read a person to a T. This dog happened to be spot on. The mom also knew, and told this person to be wary of Adam. “I said Missy was obviously freaked out about him, too, so I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him. So, we went to the karaoke bar. Betty ordered pop. This was a non-issue as she was a devout Mormon and didn’t drink. I ordered pop, and Adam immediately started trying to talk me into alcohol because he knows I drink.”
That’s a huge red flag. Even though peer pressuring your friends is common, it’s different when it’s someone you barely know. Their twin also ordered soda, which surprised him. They sang karaoke, went home, and the night was over. Apparently, Betty did a spontaneous bounce back home and admitted that Adam was creeping her out and kept hitting on her. They all blocked him (via Ranker).
