Last week, I read with concern this article about a girl in Butler County who reported that a man tried to kidnap her. She gave a super duper detailed description:
The suspect is described as white, in his late 40s or early 50s, with a thin build and long gray hair pulled back into a ponytail. She said he had brown teeth that possibly were in an advanced stage of decay.
The man was driving a dark blue, two-door car — possibly a 1993 Chevrolet Beretta GT — with rust and paint chips along the bottom rocker panel and either dark, or no, hubcaps.
I don’t know why, but when I read it, I immediately doubted her story.
Maybe because I’m a bitch. Maybe because I know that at 13, if I had been close enough to a kidnapper to see his teeth and still managed to escape, I’d be so frazzled that by the time the cops asked me what he looked like I’d be all, “He looked like a VIOLENT ASSHOLE and that’s all I remember!”
No WAY would I know that he was driving a two-door versus a four-door.
Turns out, I was right. She did make it up.
You should never doubt PittGirl.
