Does somebody out there know how to make an app? Because I have a winner for you.
Imagine you are out on a date. A very bad date. You are sitting at the table, drinking your latte or sipping your wine, wondering desperately how you can get out of there. You can't text a friend without looking obvious, you can't make up an excuse without looking rude, and your bestie isn't due to call to check up on you for at least another twenty minutes and you just don't think you can last that long.
You shift your weight, pressing one button discreetly on your phone. And within a few minutes, a man appears at the door of the restaurant.
"DARLING!" he cries. "I've been looking everywhere for you! I can't bear being without you for a second longer! Please take me back!!!"
"Oh!" you cry. And though you have never seen this man before in your entire life, you run gratefully into his arms.
You look apologetically at your date. "I'm sorry... I'm so sorry... I didn't expect this... I really have to go...."
And with that, the date is over. You have been rescued.
Of course, respondees don't need to be members of the opposite gender, or even the same gender if the user is on a same-sex date. One might argue that a woman rescuing another woman on a straight date, or a man rescuing a woman on a lesbian date, adds even more drama and finality to the situation.
And it's not just women who will need rescuing. Men have bad dates too, and will no doubt require assistance, and what better way to be rescued than by a single woman?
So here it is. Rescue.com. Go forth, build my app and let's make money. I promise you I shall be the first to sign up.
Not that I have ever felt the need to be rescued... seriously, this idea just came to me out of thin air....
