Iron Maiden

Story Sent in by Genna:

Not 10 minutes into our date Reggie turned to me and said, "I have a tire iron. Just in case you try anything."

I was dumbfounded. "Try... what exactly?"

He said, "I don't know. But if you women can carry around mace and little purse guns then don't think for a second I won't defend myself."

"I–"

"For a second."

Then he reached down his baggy pants and pulled out a tire iron. He held it tightly with one hand and hit it into his other palm. "Yep. A nice tire iron. A nice, niiiiiiiice tire iron." He shoved it back down his pants.

Any chance for a comfortable evening was gone. I sat down to dinner with Reggie and his nice tire iron. He spent some time adjusting it in his pants (perhaps just for show) and not really speaking to me. I couldn't wait to be done and out of there.

On our way out I was in front of him and I reached for the door. From behind he said, "Let me get it."

I said, "It's okay. I've got it."

He then swung his tire iron so close to my face that he almost hit me. He said, "I said, I've got it."

I was so mad that I shoved ahead and opened the door myself despite the threat of violence. I kept going and didn't look back and never have since.

  1. Though at first he was boasting about his dick.

  2. In case nobody told you. You're stupid for continuing to have dinner with him.

  3. He threatens you and you still ate dinner with him. You couldn't wait for the date to be over and you still stayed for dinner. Let's place bets as to who was paying.

  4. I've never been so desperate for a meal that I've risked having my skull beaten flat with a tire iron. Maybe I just haven't known real hunger?

  5. He threatens you within 10 minutes. The only reason women carry mace or stun guns is to stop attacks, not to threaten men. Why do I get this creepy feeling he was a control freak and would have attacked you. You were stupid to stay past the first 15 minutes.

  6. "Is that a tire iron in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?"

    At least you didn't have to waste time dating this asshat to find out he was an abusive control freak. He came out with it right out of the box.

  7. Judgmental people like OP really dumbfound me. Who is to say that he was not a really sweet guy! OP should have spent more time with him.

  9. Some women find assertiveness very attractive.

    2. Now Steve. I only go for guys who threaten me with cane swords or kunai. I have standards.

    3. Kunai are impractical and cane swords are too obvious. A lady deserves to be threatened with a railgun; a gentleman's weapon.

    4. Some women know the difference between "assertive" and "psycho".

  10. When he said tire iron, I would have said check please. If he said anything else, I would have asked the waiter to call the police.i would have left him there with his stupid tire iron.
