What If...?

This is purely hypothetical, it hasn't happened to me. It's just an odd, random thought, the kind you get when you fall asleep on the couch way too early and wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep. So don't ask me a bunch of questions about who it is.

What if you met someone on this site or any other that you really liked, really got along with well, etc. They were witty, bright, erudite, good looking, everything you've been looking for. Then one day, you're in the post office, or watching "America's Most Wanted" and you see this person. What would you do?

It did happen to me once....not a bad situation actually....cordial hello and niceties..until he turned around and said "That is the girl I showed you the profile pics of" to his friend!!!!! Needless to say, it is all acoording to how the situation presents itself as to how I would react!

Wait... He brought his friend along on the first date to check you out? I hope there was no second date.

LMAO!! Woman with my luck I probably WOULD meet that guy! Problem is I wouldn't find out until SWAT knocked down my door! Why?

1- I NEVER go to the post office
2- I Never watch America's Most Wanted
3- The people that would meet him never go to the post office.
4- The people that would meet him never watch AMW.

Wait a Minute!! YOU enjoy looking at the WANTED posters...dammit MissAnn!! OK never mind the list. The man of my dreams is in jail

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 1:27 pm:
Alas, my local post office doesn't seem to have wanted posters. I have looked. So he'd still be safe.

I'd probably end up turning them in. Can't stand criminals.

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 1:30 pm:
I'd probably do the same thing.

Hypothetically speaking, of course, if I were to meet that person I would lie thru my teeth and say 'Hello (insert persons name here, assuming I know more than just the handle and I bloody well hope I would), I'm that incredibly bright, witty, good looking everything you've been looking for in a coffee drinking partner that you have been speaking to on AdultFriendFinder for the past (insert however long it was here). I didn't expect to see you here, fancy a drink?'
I probably wouldn't say that at all, it's not how I speak. I also only drink like 2 cups of coffee a year so knowing me it wouldn't occur to me to suggest it. So the truthful response is I really don't know what I would say or do.

Faint dead away from shock, especially if you're sitting on the couch with her when you see her face on the news?

Turn them in without hesitation....for all I know the whole relationship is built on a lie...

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 1:35 pm:
Not to mention, you probably don't even have their real name.

Ted Bundy was nice and a charmer...need I say more?

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 2:53 pm:
Well, I wouldn't call him nice. But he did manage to charm a lot of women into his car.

OMG!! First I would be depressed, thinking what a bad judge of character I am. Then I would call the police!! And then, of course, I would hope for a huge cash reward for turning the bastard in.

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 3:01 pm:
Hey, a murderer can be incredibly charming. So I wouldn't worry about the bad judge of character bit. But yeah, calling the cops would be the thing to do.

I would turn them in

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 3:04 pm:
In most cases, so would I.

1. learn more about why he was wanted
2. if #1 sounded justified, quietly turn him in
3. do a systems check of my own accessibility/vulnerability (meaning physical access safety & security, not emotional vulnerability, lol )
4. after some time safely passed and depending on outcome, BLOG IT of course!

For me, the challenge of what to do would be if I thought that the reason he was wanted was iffy.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 3:05 pm:
You know, you're right. I never would have turned in Abbie Hoffman. As a matter of fact, when he was found, he wasn't living too far away from me and in a town where all of us as teenagers spent a lot of time. But for most crimes, I would.

Mm...depending on the said crime...bad one (murder ya know, the LOT) I'd turn them in asap. (especially molesters..they suck!)

Robbing a bank? I'd blackmail them for a figured amount to NOT tell the police where they are or have been...

Other than that...never answer my phone or door or go off invisible mode on my messenger! lol (or the off chance I can pose as a long lost twin sister and 'kill' myself off lol. )

I'm leaving the site end of March. To those who want to keep in touch, see blog for details.

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 3:10 pm:
Ah, but there does tend to be a reward for bank robbers. Not to mention, if the dye splattered, it is a notice to merchants and other banks that the money was part of a robbery. Turning him in would also mean not having to fake your own death when things get hairy.

Ann, you're wonderful! I get such twisted thoughts after reading you. Would I fuck someone on the most wanted list. Would I fuck them literally or figuratively? Would I do both? Hmm how big are their hands? is their adams apple pronounced?

Just how desperate am I?

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 3:11 pm:
Um, I'm guessing pretty damned desperate if the Adam's apple isn't a clue that it's a dude in drag.

That's a tough call. I'm not sure what I'd do, and I hope I never have to find out.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 3:15 pm:
I hope so too.

it depends...plenty of good looking people work at the post office and if it was the host of America's most Wanted, I'd ask for his autograph.

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 3:16 pm:
um... Not quite what I meant. But I think I want to start using your post office.

What were you eating before you fell asleep, pickle ice cream with anchovy pizza? You have weird dreams ...

Depends on what they were wanted for. This country could use a Guy Fawlkes ...

MissAnnThrope replies on 4/27/2006 3:22 pm:
No, this was hours after I woke up. It had nothing to do with a dream. It was an odd, random sleepless thought. I tend to block out my dreams, they tend to be so disturbing. But anchovies? Ew!

But you've given me another thought... Was Guy Fawkes just a patsy for the group? Were any of the others caught and hung? Was he the idiot they wanted to be rid of, so they were going to let him blow himself up with Parliment? Or was he just the guard, making sure nothing went wrong?

I wouldn't stress it.

There are murderers on this site.

You and I both know it, Ann.

MissAnnThrope replies on 5/3/2006 1:26 am:
Well, I know that guy who killed his wife and baby was a member of this site. The law of averages would dictate that there are uncaptured killers and potential killers on this site. However, if you met a serial killer using this site, you probably wouldn't last long enough to recognize him or her on a wanted poster or on "America's Most Wanted."

^Don't underestimate me, Ann.

If I met a serial killer on this site, I'd probably have them pegged long before I ever had the inclination to meet them in person.

I am rarely fooled by people...

There is no wall impenetrable by me.

MissAnnThrope replies on 5/3/2006 4:34 pm:
Yes, there is such a thing as being a good judge of character. Look at all the women who refused to help Ted Bundy when he played lame. They got a bad feeling.

But you still haven't told me what you'd do if you met someone who turned out to be wanted? Not necessarily murder, but an ALF member wanted for lab terrorism, a bank robber, someone who kidnapped her kid, etc.
