Manhattan, KS – Police are trying to figure out what to do with a 23-year-old man who didn’t have enough cash to pay a prostitute for her services and ended up calling the authorities for help.
This strange story is brought to you by the Topeka Capital-Journal.
The unnamed 23-year-old called Riley County police to a mobile home in Manhattan around 2 am Wednesday, according to the police report. The man confessed that he had hired a Topeka woman online at an agreed $400 rate for two hours of sex.
After the two hours were up, the man confessed to the prostitute that he did not have any money to pay her.
According to authorities, the man called police for help because he feared some kind of retaliation from the woman or her pimp.
The weirdest thing about this story is that no one has even been arrested. The official line is that “the investigation is ongoing,” which is official jargon for “we have no idea what to do.”
“Note to working girls everywhere: Collect up front because ‘services rendered’ lose their value once rendered,” wrote one in reply to the original report.
It’s true of any business transaction. Always get the money up front. Always.
What do you think of the story? I think it’s okay to laugh, if that’s your honest reaction.
