Saying “No” is not enough these days. Hence “Angel Shots” is the new code introduced in the market. Heard about it?
It seems this started in a restaurant bar in Florida. They had a sign hanging in the bathroom. The entire staff is trained to know what to do. It’s a policy of the establishment and a part of the employee training, the whole point is it is policy and the entire staff know what to do.
Anywhere else, most bartenders will have no idea what you’re talking about.
This might be a good idea! Every bar should have a code like this posted in the women’s restroom. More women find themselves in dangerous situations with men they do know than absolute strangers.
But, why not just say “I need help!”
Or when you are in the bathroom text the police or a friend?
Write on a napkin?
Or maybe stop hooking up with a picture on Tinder, Facebook or Craig’s list??
Anyway it is a sad commentary on society.
During my teenage years, my parents and I had our own code. If I ever need help then I would simply call home and say “mom I’m having a great time at…” and they would come to pick me up, no questions asked. Before anyone says it won’t work, it did and it does. I always tell my husband where I’m going. And we have our own code – “honey I am having a great time at…”. 😉
However guys get in trouble on dates and may need a safe out too. What code do we suggest for them?
