I was on the phone with my friend Julie (YouTOme on xanga), and all of a sudden my doorbell rang like 5 times in a row. I answer the door and the following ensued:
Me: [Opens door]
Young Woman: “Do you have any money” [smile].
Me: ::blink:: [closes door slowly and returns to phone conversation, talking about some craaazy person who rang my doorbell at 9 o’clock at night and asked for money with no explanation].
A minute or so goes by and the doorbell rings again, I cautiously open it. Three guesses who it is. The following ensues:
Her: “Why did you close the door in my face?”
Me: “Why did you ring my doorbell five times and ask me for money?”
Her: “I need to raise like 15 dollars, I’ll do sex for 15 dollars.”
Me: Stunned, I stare for a second and then mutter “No thanks” and start to close the door.”
Her: “You don’t have any money?”
Me: “No, I don’t have any money.” ::closes door::
It is important to note that she didn’t seem strung out, abused, traumatized, homeless, unkempt or anything else you might imagine, just a young, average-looking woman with a very strange business model. She seemed friendly and un-threatening aside from the insanity of knocking on someone’s door at night and asking if they have any money with no explanation, and the strangeness (to me) of offering sex for cash. If I didn’t know any better I’d think she was selling magazine subscriptions.
So yeah. Ever have someone knock on your door and offer you sex?
