Isn’t it unbelievably presumptuous to ask, no demand, a stranger give credit? A few guys felt entitled to have a woman NOW. They’d get seriously angry when I declined. I used to say, “How about this? Why don’t you give me the money now and I’ll give my solemn word to see you next week.” Can you believe no one ever took me up on that offer?
No one wanted to pay me in advance but men without money, or without money they wanted to spend would insist they were trustworthy.
