(long story....there was an old episode where a kid was nicked from a fair that I thought may have been playing in the back of my head today)ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1443963212.770882.jpg
I would have thought awesome free balloon animal. And probably thought pedo too but taken balloon for ds to enjoy then be creeped out for rest of day that it was a pedo then get over it.
I wouldn't have let the guy catch on I thought he was dodgey and been very grateful to him. But im super paranoid about perves so I would have thought the same as you
When I worked in a kids toy shop we used to give out balloons all the time. I wonder if anyone thought I was a pedo 😂😂😂
Can't say I'm particularly wary of strangers. Most abuse is perpetrated by 'trusted' people.
I know a pedophile (attracted to children, no abuse...and yes, the police know everything I know). I went to school with him; had known him for more than 10 years before I found out. You'd never pick him if you were focused on stereotypes.
I would probably check my purse and handbag after he gave us the balloon. I would have thought it would have been a distraction to possibly a wallet thief or the like. But I would have been wary too, as thieves or whatever often catch you offguard, so that your guard is down, therefore you act differently than you normally would.
