“they hire a stripper and nearly ruin their lives”

The second is in no sense any possible predictable consequence of the first. For someone to have made a bad decision, the consequences of that decision must be knowable in advance. Hindsight doesn’t count.

She could have been a painter or plumber who was equally nuts. Any stranger in your home can be equally unpredictable.

All you have to do is give a woman a chivalrous ride home in your car and if she accuses you of rape she equally can ruin your life.

For just this reason, when I used to be a university faculty member, I would never ever have a closed door meeting with a female undergraduate. In order to treat everyone equally, I made the male undergraduates leave the door open too.

To: Locomotive Breath
you are right, but it did.... which is my point

They didn't hire a plumber or an electrician or innocently offer a ride to someone who turned out to be nuts, they hired a whore

You do see my point here, don't you? All of those other choices are innocent- hiring a whore is not

And hey - I am no saint- I have gone to strip clubs- I'll admit it- but I am glad none of the more embarrassing moments in my life turned out this bad
