New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 1, 2000, New Braunfels, Texas Tbesday February HERALDZmTUNO Page7A AROUND TOWN Womans spiked bar drink could have been last call DEAR ABBY DEAR ABBY The letter about club drugs really hit home I would like to warn all young women about the potential for their drinks to be dosed with these drugs without their knowl edge I went to a neighborhood bar over Thanksgiving weekend and found myself feeling very woozy and overintoxicated for the amount I had to drink I had left my drink on the bar while I went to use the ladies room and when I came back it tasted strange Since it was a new drink I assumed the bartender had mixed it differently Shortly after consuming this drink I became sick to my stom ach and lightheaded A fellow I had chatted with and who coincidentally had offered to watch my drink started asking me questions about how I felt and if I wanted a place to crash I have no doubt he had less than innocent intentions Fortunately two gentlemen by the names of Andrew and Chris came to my aid They stayed by my side talking to me keeping me alert calling a car service for me and making sure the other guy didnt bother me I left the bar before thanking them so Abby please let me thank them now Ladies Do not leave your drink unattended no matter what And if the drink tastes dont drink it While most of these drugs are tasteless and odorless others have a salty taste Just be careful And to all the Andrews and Chrises out there thank you CHRISTINE IN MID LOTHIAN VA DEAR CHRISTINE You are a lucky young woman You had a very close call The young man who doctored your drink is a predator Your comments about never leaving a drink unattended are important I hope young people will pay attention It may seem like a cold reality but its part of being streetwise and selfpro tective DEAR ABBY I am a volunteer at a local animal shelter and Im deeply concerned about pet own ers who do not take full responsi bility for the safety of their pets Every day dogs and cats are brought in off the streets without tags or identification Many of them are wonderful loving pets who belong to someone who did nt bother to put identification on them for one reason or another As a result thousands of these wonderful animals are put to death every year because their owners cant be located Abby it is heartbreaking to have to euthanize healthy animals due to lack of shelter space and available homes Please inform your readers of the importance of putting ID tags on their pets It could save a lot of heartache ANIMAL LOVER IN BEND ORE DEAR ANIMAL LOVER Im pleased to publicize this important reminder to pet own ers Dogs and cats are curious creatures who often like to wan der If the animal is picked up proper identification can liter ally mean the difference between life and death so please dont procrastinate For a guide to becoming a bet ter conversationalist order How to Be Send a business sized selfaddressed envelope plus check
