Attention you fucks who keep reporting this post because "it's St. Paddy's, not Pat's."
My hotel in bloody **Dublin, Ireland** has signs in the lobby wishing everyone a "Happy St Pat's," your argument is invalid.
Turn off your internet and go drink some green beer. It'll get the taste of all that salt out of your mouth.
Edit: Good job you degenerates, this is my most upvoted comment ever and I don't get the karma from it because it's distinguished. 👌
Guinness tastes better in Ireland. 🍺 Slainté!
This is a good system. Very passive way to make sure someone is safe. Good people out there.
Always great to see women looking out for each other. I'm glad you were safe and able to take control of the situation, but having people ready to help if needed is a big reassurance.
This is awesome.
In UK I’ve seen posters for a campaign called Ask For Angela. If you feel uncomfortable you can ask any member of staff to speak with Angela and they’ll understand that you need help getting a taxi or discreetly getting away from your situation. Pretty cool.
What made those women think he was bothering you?
EDIT: I'm not implying he wasn't. I'm asking because I want to know the look-out signs for when this happens.
Warms my heart to hear these stories
That’s awesome they were looking out for you ( and I’m guessing other drunk girls) like that!
I found another good way to discreetly ask, is to ask if the woman has any feminine hygiene products she can lend you
Doesn’t work all the time due to circumstances, but it can sometimes help you pull her away from whoever’s she’s with to go to the restroom, where you can ask
Aww. This is awesome! It’s moments like this that shine through in a world full of uncertainty and really helps to restore my faith in people. Those girls, through what may seem like a small gesture to some, could very much save someone’s life someday (and maybe already have) through their actions and, personally, they make me strive to be more present outside of my own little “bubble” when I’m out in public. As well as to be more courageous when it comes to reaching out to a stranger if I feel like something may not be a safe/healthy situation. Thank you SO much for sharing. I bet I’ll rest a little easier tonight. ☺️
(Also... Hell Yeah, Girl Power!!! 🤩)
I tried to help a guy in a similar situation with two drunk women who were obviously trying to get in his pants. He acted weird when I asked him to dance and then tried to get us an Uber. Maybe he's just a Lyft guy, I don't know.
That's awesome! I got kind of nervous when the title said *tried*, but I'm glad it turned out well!
This whole time I thought you were a guy hanging out with his mates and getting all types of banter thrown at you. Realised you were a girl!
This happened to me too when a guy acquaintance asked me for a dance to get away from a seemingly pestering guy who would not leave me alone. And it worked!
Love this story!! Good looking out stranger angel girls! The smallest things such as this can have such a huge impact on others.
Ok, my nerdy inner 90s child self has to add that this story makes me want to yell "GIRL POWER!" hahaha
It's awesome that women do this. As a man I'm filled with sadness that this is necessary to begin with.
Is there a male equivalent to this? It kinda seems like asking a stranger if she wants to dance would be seen as the kind of behavior you're trying to help her with before you even have a chance to discreetly ask if she's okay.
❤❤❤ I am so glad they were looking out for you. Girls Rock!!!
