Scary Stunts

I met this woman who, although she was quite smitten with me, I wasn't interested in dating. I was talking to another woman at a bar when the first woman spied me. She walked up to me, slapped my face, and said, "That's it. I'm taking the kids and leaving." She turned around in a huff and walked out the door. I tried to explain to the girl I was talking to that this was just a jealous trick by the other woman. I tried to convince her that I really wasn't married and that I didn't have any kids. Despite my efforts, she wasn't interested in continuing our conversation after that incident. That stunt made sure that I would never go out with the first woman. Maybe that was just her sick sense of humor, but it scared me.
