If you’ve ever had a bad date I’m sure you’ve tried to think of every last excuse in the book to get out of it. But what if you had a bad date that made you feel unsafe?
Bar Robo on Somerset St West is adopting a popular program from the U.K. hoping to help anyone who may be in that situation.
It’s called ‘Ask For Angela’. It’s pretty simple too. If you’re on a date and you feel like it’s gone sour, you’re being harassed, or maybe they didn’t turn out to be who they advertised in photos, go to the bar and ask for ‘Angela’. Trained staff will then offer assistance. Escorting your off the property, calling you a taxi, or finding you a safe place in the bar.
So far, in the two weeks they’ve had posters advertising the program, no one has asked for Angela.
