It’s safe to say most humans have been on a bad date. It’s how you get out of it that counts.
This woman used the old "feeling sick" excuse while on a hike with a guy she obviously wasn’t into, but it snowballed into a big deal when her date called for emergency help. It's not like she could pull the disapearing act and excuse herself to the bathroom, forever. She was in the woods. She'd probably get lost, and then she'd really need a rescue team and that's just going too far.
Soon after displaying her Sweet November, 50/50 fake illness acting chops, the cops arrived and, unlike Meryl Streep, she broke character and folded under interrogation, admitting she was in fine health, and just not that into her hiking partner. The poor guy had to witness the whole show.
In the end, the incident was absurd enough to made the local police blotter in Amherst, Massachusetts, and then was spotted all over Twitter. It had over 1,000 retweets as of Wednesday morning.
“Police responded to an Amherst site where a man and woman were hiking, and the woman became ill. Police determined the woman was just trying to get out of a date set up using the WeChat app and feigned illness instead of being more forthcoming about why she wanted to end the hike.”
