I wish Drink Safe was around back then.
Dear Drink Safe Technologies,
I don’t know where to begin, but a million thanks are owed to your company, I will share with you a true story that I have told very few people, in it is the reality that no drink is safe unless it is prepared by the individual consuming it. About 11 years ago, I had a friend, we’ll call her Samantha who was dating a GUY we’ll call Kirk.
I met Samantha and we instantly clicked, she became such a good friend that she helped me get a job with her and her boyfriend, and it all seemed perfectly normal. I did not know during this time that Kirk had a secret crush on me, and that Samantha was well aware of it.
One day Kirk and Samantha decided to get an apartment and move in together in the town we all grew up in, a small town on Long Island. I was quite flattered that Samantha invited me over for dinner the minute the stuff was unpacked, and I took her up on the offer.
I wasn’t even finished with my dinner when I started feeling very tired. I remember saying, I am sorry, I don’t know what’s come over me all of a sudden, I’m so tired, I think I’ll head home. It was then that Samantha and Kirk both shouted, NO! You shouldn’t drive when you’re so tired, it is just as bad a being drunk! And Samantha suggested I lie down in her bed until I was ready to return home safely. I woke up to Kirk just looking at me funny, like he was watching me sleep. It felt like I was only asleep for about a half hour, but when I asked him, Kirk confirmed that it had been three or so hours! That was when Kirk explained to me that SAMANTHA had put ruffies in my iced tea, to drug me up so that he could have me already, live the fantasy and get over it. Kirk confided that he couldn’t do it, thank God. It was confirmed that I had NOT been raped, thanks to my guardian angels and a guy with some morals.but what COULD have happened?
It scares me. And even though I was not raped, I was scarred for life, I am unable to form trusting friendships, and I am suspicious of anyone that tries to get inside my close circle of a few friends. I wish drink safe was around back then, it just goes to show you that the person you’d least expect, in the place you’d least expect, and even in the BEVERAGE you’d least expect, DANGER could be lurking.
