So I was I’d say around 10 years old, and my family decides to take the dog for a walk. I decide I want to rollerblade, and make big circles around my family as they walk. At one point I end up a block ahead of my family, and a rusty beat up truck pulls up and stops, and a dude jumps out. I remember him having a super short beard.
He says “hey kid, check this out!” and he pulls out a skateboard, and rides it on the street and says “pretty cool skateboard huh kid? You want it?” I, being completely happy with my rollerblades, say “no thank you!” He says “come on! It’s free! Just come over here and take it!” I say “No, I like my rollerblades!”
At this point, he looks down the street and sees my family walking up the street. Without saying anything to me, he throws his skateboard in the back, jumps in his truck and drives away. I never thought it was weird, didn’t tell my parents, in my head it was “some dude tried to give me a skateboard I didn’t want!” 10 years later I’m like HOLY FUCK. THANK GOD I DIDN’T FUCKING LIKE SKATEBOARDS.
TL:DR Didn’t get kidnapped because I thought skateboards suck.
