“What was the worst date of your life?” is a fun question to ask at parties or when getting to know another person. Typically, the answers are banal, but sometimes the other person, in answering, acted so oddly, or rudely, that the best course of action was to shut down the date and never talk to the person again. For instance, I went on a date with a person who then took me to a bar and proceeded to hit on another woman in front of me for about two hours before I had the common sense to leave. You live and you learn.
What I’m trying to get at is: Your worst date was bad, but at least the date didn’t rob you at gunpoint.

A 17-year-old woman set up a date with an 18-year-old man on Instagram, Cobb County (Ga.) police told WSB-TV, and the night appeared to dissolve into something that one typically wouldn’t see in a romantic comedy.
Maquwell Fleming was arrested on July 17, just hours after she held up a man at a Walmart parking lot in Marietta, Ga., where they were supposed to meet for a date, police said. “She hops out of a Dodge Dart, gets in the back of the vehicle, points a gun at him [and] robs him of the $160 that he had just been paid from his job,” Cobb County Police Sgt. Sarah O’Hara told WSB-TV.
But this less-than-romantic encounter wasn’t the end of the night, according to WSB-TV and police.
The victim, who wanted to get his money back, then followed Fleming onto the interstate and then a state route, where a Cherokee County coroner spotted the speeding cars and called the police. After the coroner followed the vehicles, the victim stopped driving to speak with police, O’Hara said.
“He stated that he had just been robbed by somebody that he thought he was supposed to be going on a date with,” O’Hara told WSB-TV.
The man gave police Fleming’s license plate number, which was put out in an alert to authorities. Police later tracked down the car, but Fleming wasn’t inside, according to the New York Post.
“It was not the suspect that they were looking for, but in fact, it was her mother,” O’Hara said, according to the New York Post.
Her mother then led police to her daughter, O’Hara said.
Fleming is in custody on a felony charge of armed robbery at the Cobb County jail without bond as of Thursday, according to the New York Post.
