Beware of picking up strangers


August 13, 2018

Dear Pastor,

I have a story to tell you. I met a young woman one day while I was on my way to rural Jamaica. She stopped me and asked me for a ride.

I asked her where she was going and she told me it was her day off, so anywhere I was going, she was going. I thought she was joking, but she was serious. I said to myself, "Well, I am in luck". As we were going along, I found out that she had one child, but the child is not living with her. Her mother had the child.

Her boyfriend cheated on her, so she left him and she was going to see a new man, but she was not sure of him.

I told her that where I was going I could not take her, so I would have to drop her off at a certain point. I became suspicious of her because she was talking non-stop.

She said she didn't have any money to pay her rent and that was one of the reasons she was going to look for this new guy.

She also told me where she lives in Kingston, but if I wanted to see her again, she would have to meet me somewhere because I could not go in the area, as the guys in the area don't like girls to bring in new men.

She told me that if I like her and we have anything going, I should move her out of the area. I told her I have my girlfriend. She said she could work with that.

Before I dropped her off, she asked me if I had any money. I only had $3,000, so I gave her $1,000.

Before she came out of the car, she told me that she couldn't bother with men like me because I was looking at a big woman like her and giving her $1,000 and that couldn't even buy soap.

When she came out of the car, she left a business card on the seat and it was then I realised that she was a call girl. I had a prostitute in my car.

There was a different name on the card than what she gave me. I am warning drivers to be careful not to pick up these well-dressed girls. Many of them are prostitutes and they operate during the day.

I tore up the card because if my girlfriend had found it, she might have believed that I went out with a prostitute. This girl is slim and is of light complexion and her hair is braided.


Dear L.K.,

It is never safe to pick up strangers on the street, whether they are male or female. In fact, one can't even be sure who is male or female when you are on the street.

A friend of mine told me that he picked up a young woman who was neatly dressed. When she came into his vehicle, she didn't beat about the bush at all. She didn't have time to waste.

She told him straight up what work she did and if he was interested, he could call her. This happened during the day. She handed him her card with her name and number.

She was a prostitute and evidently she was looking for more clients, and her price was reasonable. He thought it was so strange to run into that type of woman during the day.

He was a much older man, so he was tickled to know that a woman who was his junior by many years was attracted to him.

You see, my friend was naive. This woman, I am sure, did not want him because she loved him. She was advertising her business and offering her service to him because she wanted his money.

The woman you met who was willing to go with you anywhere would have had sex with you anywhere if you had money, because she was broke.

So, when she asked you for money and you told her you only had $3,000 and you gave her $1,000,. she considered you a waste of time.

I thank you for sharing your experience with readers and I hope that all our men will remember that it is very risky to spend your money with prostitutes.
