How I Was Separately Propositioned By Both Members Of A Couple At Disney World

She then turned to him and began yelling at him for flirting with “some slut” while vigorously shaking her finger in his face. I looked away, smiling politely and uncomfortably, as my general gauge of the situation was, “Dude is pissed that his girlfriend is drunk, girl is pissed that her boyfriend is talking to me,” and I did not want to be in the middle of that. Nevertheless, I also did not want to get rid of my drink which was still mostly full, so I decided to excuse myself to have a cigarette.

“I’ll… come wif you,” she slurred, her eyes totally dead and blinking separately.

She followed me outside to the patio and I gave her a cigarette. She needed assistance lighting it, so I helped her and she smoked it for about three seconds before promptly putting it out. Not knowing what to say, I asked her about her relationship in an attempt to make it clear that I genuinely did not want to sleep with this guy she was seeing. She started babbling about how they were soooo good together and how he was soooo amazing oh my goood. Then, he came outside to bring her his jacket, and she got this weird look.

For a second, I thought she was going to throw up, but then I realized what that look meant. I knew it, because I had seen it before in other females when a very specific idea dawns on them. She glanced at her boyfriend, then leaned over and grabbed my face, pushing it against hers.

I backed up quickly. I was not about to make out with some drunk lady in Disney World who wants to have her boyfriend watch us. I’ve been with women plenty of times, but this was definitely not one of those instances — particularly considering she was sort of drooling beer everywhere. But, I tried to be nice; after all, I have certainly been wasted many times before, and I didn’t want to be rude or make her feel stupid for doing something idiotic.

Her boyfriend, at this point, was rolling his eyes. He told me that they were staying at the hotel down the road, to which I replied that I was, as well, and he offered to have me walk back with them if I could help him get her there. He insisted he was not trying to hit on me and that he genuinely loved this chick, but he just couldn’t deal with her alone. She was being rather unmanageable, and I felt bad for him — again, he seemed totally normal. Plus, I needed to get back to the hotel, didn’t really want to wait for the bus and there were cops (apparently they were not cops, but security guards? When people carry badges and are all in blue, I kind of just assume…) all along the path, so I felt all right about the situation.

Yes, I know. I am dumb.

    Young lady, you need to grow up ! You might also decide to go down to the get it store and purchase an operational moral compass, the one you have is badly broken.

    • broderman

      chill with the slut-shaming. _She_ thought the situation was creepy and bailed as a result. she said she had no interest in spending the night with either. wth did she do that you think was unethical? tell the guy no?

    • HalfACenturian

      I am so glad there are concerned and empathetic conscientious people in the world …I found the author’s perspective to be so jaded aside from her withholding telling the drunk women she was doing anything wrong…even that was only because she wouldn’t have wanted someone calling her out when she was doing the same. Egads no wonder zombie movies are so popular lately

    I once woke up in the bed of a FF couple and had no idea how I had gotten there.My clothes were washed and folded at the bottom of the bed and I felt pretty damn good,also got a naked breakfast in bed by both partners who were very happy for a reason I can only guess.I admit I was shocked to be there but just hope that it was fun for me too.(was 17 y.o. male at the time).

    Worst written article I’ve read in a long time. You took multiple paragraphs to paint your story and them BAM! One para and it’s done. Not an impressive wrap up.

  • Jack

    I believe once you graduate middle school, you should start writing more about things that really happened to you rather than fiction in a blog. It should not only improve your writing style, but actually make the reader more intrigued.
    P.S. High School can be a bitch with alot more drinking than goes on in your fable. Be careful!

  • Brrryce

    Seriously. What was this? Soft porn? A writing exercise? Diary entry? Mtchmaker ad? I kept waiting for a payoff, but no. Hopefully, this ‘writer’ finds a better-fitting vocation.

    • Rick in Orlando

      Agree completely… plus it is factually inaccurate. Orlando has an open container law. No Disney property would allow the patron to leave with a drink. Furthermore, the area she was talking about does not have cops every block. Orlando police ride, they don’t walk beats. Poorly written and untrue as well.

    • broderman

      They sell shots openly on the street on Pleasure Island. And I’ve seen plenty of Disney employees patrolling paths between bars and hotels.

    • Ziva

      Also, she states that she is staying at a Disney hotel. The closest one is Saratoga Springs, which is a boat ride away, but not within walking distance of Downtown Disney. DTD in and of itself is a LONG walk!

    • Sher

      I’ve been to Downtown Disney many times and there is a hotel right around the corner from the end of the village, I think it was Saratoga Springs. We walked from the hotel to the Downtown Disney, the path comes out right behind the Rainforest Cafe. So it is a possible walk. As far as the guards go, never noticed any of them! ;)

    • http://www.facebook.com/phillysportsfan88 Mark Smith

      Bored I think this is part fact and fiction, why would a 23 year old girl on vacation tell this story? I don’y know: attention/press/make herself feel she did something correct(obviously a misconception-i.m.o.) with all due respect people write things for all sorts of reasons. She obviously thought this was a big deal, and it could have been she could have easily woke up drugged, assaulted with all her stuff gone. She forgot to mention that, because she felt she was always the one doing right. Classic narcisism

  • JF

    Are you a bleeping idiot? Don’t ya know this is how women get themselves killed? Walking at night with a strange man can GET YOU HURT. Doesn’t matter if you’re at Disney World or downtown New York City. Obviously your mother never taught you not to talk to strangers, never mind going off alone with them. Could your drink have been spiked in the bar? Yes. Could the drunk bimbo have been acting in such as way as to get you to ‘help’ one in need, when in actuality she could have been a ruse to get you alone with them? Yes. Could you have been raped, beaten, robbed, dumped on the way back to your hotel? Yes. You’re lucky you woke up in your own rented bed the next morning, alive and well. The evening could have turned out much differently for you (as it has for scores of other women who’ve been duped into going with strange men). You’re a Dumb Ass lady. Other women, take note, NEVER walk ANYWHERE with strangers. This writer doesn’t know jack shit about being careful.

    • broderman

      can’t disagree for this, altho it looks like you’re yelling at someone who already made your exact point. It was a safety issue, not a moral issue. People forget that while on vacation they are obvious prey who let their guard down.

    • http://www.facebook.com/phillysportsfan88 Mark Smith

      I obviously agree JF, and although this story was meant to be an account of actual events. The storyteller obvioulsy had her drink on as well(or is just dumb), and was open to advances from a stranger/s. This story in my opinion is as much fiction and someone’s attempt to impress readers. The writer as you very correctly pointed out portrayed herself in control of the situation the truth is she is lucky she didn’t wake up from a GHB slumber HURT, with all her id/money/cards or more importantly assualted. this is an example of what not to do from start to finish. She had soo many chances to walk, out of this. She is lucky if she made it home whole. They could have taken her wallet,she would have forgotten that tidbit i’m sure, this girl would have blamed herself saying she must have dropped it. The bartenders felt so bad they took the $10 beer off, but not one said sweatheart get the !@#$ out of this situation. Wake up folks even in disneyland, we aren’t in disneyland!

  • billrich2

    I’m not quite sure why Disney has a part in this, except that this is where she was at the time. However, one needs to remember that Downtown Disney is accessible by anyone. It is simply a huge shopping area located on Disney property. You don’t have to be a guest at Disney World to enjoy Downtown Disney and that is the reason that it is normally packed every weekend. As a side note, this woman says that her hotel was within walking distance of Downtown Disney and that she could take a bus back if she wanted. Although there are some hotels across the highway from Downtown Disney, the buses do not run there. Those buses run back and forth to the Disney Resort Hotels and the parks. There are no Resort hotels within a comfortable walking distance of Downtown Disney either. This by itself leads me to believe that this story is fabricated. Which brings me back to my original point about why Disney World was used as the backdrop.

    • Anonymous

      Saratoga Springs… walk around the one end, take a bus or swim across the lake!

    • billrich2

      I specifically put the word, “comfortable,” in front of walking distance because I knew someone would make a comment. Sarasota Springs is quite a ways from Downtown Disney. If you take into account how large Downtown Disney is, walking to Sarasota Springs would not be considered a comfortable walk.

    • John Walker

      It’s 0.9 miles and a 17 minute walk according to Google maps. Around the pond. Seventeen minute walk isn’t “comfortable”? Bring a snack. McDonalds is only 1.6 mi from the hotel.

    • billrich2

      I am not sure what you referring to, however, the walk way does not even extend as far down as the entrance to Saratoga Springs. Go back and look at your map again.

    • http://www.facebook.com/phillysportsfan88 Mark Smith

      Understood Bill, though i doubt this was her message. What i took from it was even when you are at Disneyland, you need to keep your wits and guard up especially a young girl alone. These stories are so prevelant, the difference is many end up with a crime(theft.assualt0 and sometimes with someone in a dumpster.

  • RD Miami

    • billrich2

      I agree 100%! This seems like an attempt to discredit Walt Disney World more than a true confession. The whole part about Disney is nothing but spin anyway. There is only one resort hotel near Downtown Disney and it is not “only a few minutes away by foot.” I’m calling BS to the whole story!!

  • fred

    “I’ve been involved in threesomes, I’ve been with women plenty of times, but this was definitely not one of those instances” … So I’m wondering why you’re writing this… this isn’t a “OMG” swingers!! or this is a horrible thing happening.. it sounds like a night on the town… and it could be almost any town. There are plenty of drunk girls and creepy guys in this world….

  • 2dalooMF

  • TIna

    You know, I think that this article was very interesting, we all have that moment of being bamboozled, thinking that someone’s intentions are good and then finding out that they are not. Also, the fact that this obviously was something that was very bizarre that had happened to you, you aren’t the only one. I am very grateful that you had the sense to not let the man walk you back to you your room, or to follow into his and “help” put his girlfriend to bed. Otherwise you would be writing a whole different kind of story. This story was very well written in the sense that it was blog-like. You stuck your neck out on a limb to tell about something that happened to you, that was out of the ordinary, and everyone else needs to think about their own skeletons in the closet before commenting on this article. We all do stupid things. I once accepted a ride from a man that I thought was my neighbor, in the pouring rain, and finding out it was a complete stranger. After fending off his advances I literally jumped out of the car at a stop sign. And for everyone else, threesomes, being bisexual and being straight. Isn’t that also apart of sex and dating? I’m sure she didn’t go into explicit detail and what she did in those scenarios.

  • billrich2

    I just can’t let this one go. My family and I LOVE Disney World. We go quite often. this whole story sounds like BS. you can’t walk to any of the resort hotels from Downtown Disney. The buses only run to the resort hotels and the parks. Downtown Disney (DD) is simply a large Disney-themed shopping complex that is open to the public. Every weekend DD is packed with locals and Disney guests alike. The only hotels that are remotely within walking distance are the ones across the busy highway and none of them are accessible by Disney Transportation. This woman OBVIOUSLY didn’t do her homework before fabricating this story. If you care to put some perspective on the complex, check out disneyworld.disney.go.com/resorts/map/#/id=saratoga-springs-resort-and-spa/. This is a great map.

    You weren’t propositioned separately; the couple knew exactly what they were doing. As for the “can you help me out” rouse, it’s the oldest one in the book. A decent person isn’t going to have a stranger help his girlfriend into bed, if she was that sick he would have asked an employee of the hotel. How bad could this girlfriend have been if she was able to walk back to the hotel?

  • bingoboy

  • Rick in FtMyers

    “I’ve been involved in threesomes before” Wow. So glad you took the moral high road this time.

  • detroitmommy

    Lol so many hate-filled tirades in the comment section. Seeing as how 1 in 4 Americans now have herpes & they estimate over 79 million have HPV I call BS on all the pretend prudes. Someone’s been out there slutting around. Why come here & pretend you’re perfect. Call out the mistakes in the story yeah, but pretending to be all moral. What a joke.

    • broderman

      agreed. For some reason people think they have open license to slap a scarlet “A” on the front of any woman who writes about sex. Or say they found a guy creepy when _he_ wanted sex, and then turned him down. Both in the comments section and in the story. It does look like reading comprehension is too low here to get the connection.

      I don’t care if she was a slut. Also, on a different subject, I’m not sure I know many 30-something women who haven’t slept with women, regardless of whether a man was present. Anyone who doesn’t might want to think about whether they’re considered a prude, and how it’s affecting their relationships.

    • ConstanceReed

      This was not about slut shaming or sex. If nothing else, it’s a cautionary tale. When the girlfriend started screaming at her boyfriend is when the author should have, at the very least, moved to another seat as far from that couple as she could get. Author’s actions spoke louder than her words; why go out for a cigarette with someone who just called you a slut? Why talk to a guy who clearly has a girlfriend? Does anyone think that this man just wanted help in “putting his girlfriend to bed?” And lastly, why would he need to walk the author back to her room? Bottom line, if any of these parties wanted consensual sex, they could have found it. Author is damn lucky she’s alive to tell this tale.

  • TD

    I call BS on this story. My guess is that it is a series of separate events that the author took the liberty of combining into one incoherent story. This was really, really bad story telling. At least make the fiction you write interesting.

    I’d give the story a C+. It’s typical of a freshman high school effort in terms of writing and imagination (lack thereof?). The self-deprecating humor is obviously an attempt to downplay the sheer stupidity of the author placing herself into a dangerous situation; the story-line is predictable and banal.

  • HalfACenturian

    This is the sort of thing that is so American; admit loneliness only in dark rooms after a drink or 6 rather than bravely in the light of day where better community options can thereby be built…especially for those poor children who will find out what lurks behind the extreme sugary farce of Disneyland. The sort of hyperbole of Disneyland isn’t necessary for a great childhood and in fact may be a detriment contrived by a bunch of adults not handling adult hood very well. We are social creatures not meant to be as isolated and individualistically excessive as we are here in the US. It takes a toll including creating people as callous as the writer who laughs when that woman’s well being is in such serious danger. To walk off is one thing…to laugh quite another. Creepy.

  • HalfACenturian

And it’s not constructive criticism or criticism that serves any real purpose at all. It’s just condemnation, criticizing just to do so.

    What the h_ll was that about? This writer didn’t want to make the drunk woman feel bad about being drunk and crazy in public…. Why not? Maybe if people would be more honest with one another, tell people when they are utterly wrong, then there would be less public display of idiocy. Like this article: A pitiful indictment of what’s wrong with young single women today. Both the writer and the drunk girl look terrible in this portrait. So does this country and its future.

    I thought this story was going somewhere. Samantha Escobar, maybe you should have had a threesome. That would of made this article somewhat interesting.

  • DrSpinUSA

    yea…the headline made it seem like a good story…instead it should have read ” my encounter with an angry drunk couple” … geez…try sharing an *interesting* story next time…

    At the point that the girlfriend showed up I would have notified the bartender that I wanted these creeps away from me. Even as a teen I knew never to get into anyone’s vehicle or allow men to accompany me anywhere. Back when I was younger it was married men who pulled this. This behavior is not a surprise.

    Florida is a hotbed for kidnapping women and children for sex slavery.

    Wow. No story here. I can’t get if you are proud of yourself because they both “propositioned” on you or if you felt bad for the poor drunk woman. I am thinking the first. I pity you. You might have had a story if you were at the gym or maybe a museum but not at a bar where a woman was being taken advantage of by her scumbag boyfriend.I bet if she was not drunk this would have never gone down. I not quite sure how you could have helped this woman because she was so drunk but I might have alerted the management? You just sound like an idiot. Grow up.

    I don’t think this article was lame, at all. In fact, I’m going to USE most of it for MY next submission: “Dear Penthouse: I heard about this…but never thought it would happen to me…” (P.S. Shitty article, Samantha Escobar.)

    Why does CNN have a link to this story? A new low for CNN.

    So this is how young women come up missing…

    -obviously some young girl’s(I know 23 your supposed to be an adult-lol) effort to stroke her ego and get some press and attention(young girl’s attention-blasphemy I say), and let everyone know how popular/attractive/desirable she is. I especially like the classy move of breaking the tension going out to smoke(at disneyworld w/ the drunken girlfriend) and her recanting she had been with many other women(not being sexually biased here,just keep your sexual innuendos behind closed doors or share and make the story worthwhile-sorry). As well as admitting she to has been the dish rag drunk the girlfriend was at that moment previously in her life :all 3 characters in this joke,of a scenario, are class personified! Like the Blair Witch Project, she finally realized at the movie’s end she may be in a bad situation! I’m glad she wasn’t harmed, but that she would embarass herself by telling that story as though an interesting or lifechanging: narciscism at it’s finest.
    So the boyfriend pulled out an axe, but not wanting to be mean, and figuring he was a lumberjack in a disney show. Followed him to the enchanted forest, where he made advances on me. I stayed strong and even though he cut off my hand, I had been with good looking lumberjacks before”so was merely a flesh wound”(Monty Python) and only my hand was gone i used my other hand to stop his advances and ran back to my hotel room.

    A disgusting story, from a moraless disgusting twit.

  • Criticical Lass

    I this an ad for how to be an idiot? Why is this e en on here?
    This is something that was hardly with a nanosecond to think about and certainly not to write about.
    Disgusting!
    She is an absolute ass…

    A selfish society breeds selfish individuals intent on getting their selfish jollies at other’s expense and then crying about it on public media channels while expecting readers to sympathize. Get some sense. Seems that everybody is looking to get off at someone else’s expense.

    Nice short fiction, perhaps worthy of a movie treatment.

  • John Kugelfischer

    does ‘the gloss’ pay people to write such drivel? this is worse than the worse rant i’ve ever read on craigslist.

  • jan.

    sounds like a made up story to me. For some reason i feel the need to spit in the authors face. is that wrong?

  • JSReX

    Ugh, what a creep indeed. I’d bet anything the bastard was trying to take advantage of his girlfriends drunken state to get her into a threesome she wouldn’t otherwise agree to. Would that have made you some sort of accomplice to rape?!

    Sorry that happened to you, but it’s a good thing you had enough brains to gtfo when you did.

  • dlcamp

    How is it, Samantha, that you feel it’s OK to blaspheme God in your article?
    God’s Name is Holy and not to be taken in vain – used commonly. One day you will stand before Him and will be judged by Him. You should think about that.
