Roller Skating in the Bad Part of Town

Roller Skating in the Bad Part of Town

We had been planning this date for a week: roller skating in Hampton, VA. We had directions to get there, money to rent skates, and lots of time. What we didn’t have, however, was the knowledge that the roller skating rink was in a bad part of town.

As we drove to the rink, we noticed that the surroundings started getting more and more run down. As we pulled into the parking lot, our conversation stopped mid-sentence. The rink’s paint was peeling. There were shady characters hanging out at the corners of the building. The parking lot was filled with potholes and derelict vehicles.

We quickly agreed that perhaps we should find some other activity for that day’s date.

Moral of the story: Make sure you know where you are going before you get there. You’ll enjoy your date much more if your girl isn’t fearful for her safety the whole time.
