Florida Man Steals His Date's Car During Movie

  
Florida Man Steals His Date's Car During MovieMugshot via Pasco County Sheriff's Department.
 
 

27-year-old Michael Pratt was at a Tampa area movie theater with his date, when he asked her for the keys to her car. Thinking nothing of it, she gave him the keys to her 2012 Ford Focus. It would be the last time she ever saw him.

When she called Pratt, he answered to tell her "I stole your car," before laughing maniacally and hanging up on her. The 35-year-old woman, who probably won't reveal her identity out of sheer embarrassment, actually tried to reach Pratt for two more days before calling the police. That's just sad.

After four days, he finally let her know that he ditched her car (which was a rental, by the way) in the parking lot of aNew Port Richey Walmart. Police eventually caught up with him, and it was revealed that Pratt had already done time for grand theft auto. Some people just can't escape the life.

Look at this dude though, would  you trust anyone with a magenta faux hawk and neck tat of a spider? Seriously, where the hell did she meet him? Her self-esteem must've really been in the toilet, and who knows where it is now.

 

I'm sure we all have our share of bad date stories -- what's yours?

Some little tidbit stories make your day

Poor girl, but seriously - no clues on a potential problem here?

I'm thinking blind date? Still, why would she give somebody she barely knew the keys to her car? And wait 2 days before calling the police?

I actually feel really bad for her. I mean, having a bad date is hard enough. Having a date actually commit a felony while on it reaches a real low.

My worst date would be all my fault. I was in my early 20's and seeing (I don't know if I would really call it dating) a guy who was a friend of one of my best girlfriends. He asked me out but then never actually took me anywhere. He would just show up every day at my work (I was working retail right out of college) and want to spend every break and lunch with me. Every day. Finally I realized that this wasn't really working for me ( I also realized that I was dreading my breaks) so I decided that this was the day I was going to tell him we were done. And he then walked in having just gotten adult braces that morning and very self conscious about it. So I'm thinking when he tells the story to people, I'm the superficial bitch who broke up with the guy who just got braces.

A bad 1st date that I didn't go on was one to a gun range. I have never held a gun, let alone wanted to do it on a date.

Oh wow, Boots -- what an awkward situation!

As for the date victim -- I'm curious to see a picture of her. I wonder if she's ever been featured in People of Walmart. For some people, these are the circles in which they travel. Maybe she was desperate enough to hope this would turn into a "funny story" about how he stole her car on their first date...

My worst date asked me out to dinner. There were some red flags prior, but as a struggling student, I thought, "why not go and at the very least have a nice meal." The guy picked me up at the apartment I was renting from my father (he lived in a separate apartment in the house -- huge old queen ann house with a turret) and proceeded to chastise me about not being able to break away from my "daddy." He also took a deck of antique playing cards I had displayed on my book shelf -- shuffling the delicate old cards vigorously as I watched in shocked silence. Young, stupid, and hungry me decides I will go get that fine meal anyway. We went to the restaurant, sat in a booth and he decided he was going to flirt shamelessly with the waitress. I also remember him going on about failure in his life and crying at the table. All the while, he repeatedly kicked my shins to the point where I had to hang my legs off the side of the bench vs. under the table. There was a point where I thought I should just call someone to come get me, but I guess I decided to ride it out and he drove me home. I COULD NOT WAIT TO GET HOME. I remember pulling up in front of my house and being so anxious to get out of the car and run to the safety of my apartment. As I opened the door, he said, "after all we have been through, don't you think we deserve a kiss?" I think I simply said NO and got out of the car and ran into my apartment and locked the door.

He even had the gall to ask me out to a movie a couple of weeks later. I turned him down...

Let's see... My worst first date was when a boy I liked from work asked me out to dinner. And, we went to dinner... where he told me he just recently slept with one of my best friends (the day or so prior), and asked if that be a problem. I said it was a problem and it was a pretty quick date...

Ok so when I was young, my friend from high school was attending art college and he said his friend saw my picture and wanted to take me out. I was up for meeting new people (especially hottie art students) so on the promise he was really cute I said yes, sight unseen.

We agreed to meet at a bar. I showed up and he came shortly after. He was not the least bit attractive, at all. The first thing he says to me is "I don't have any money, will you buy me a drink?" Being a poor student as well (and quickly realizing this would go nowhere) I said no. So he drank water and I nursed 1 drink.

He didn't talk. At all. So i pushed him with a few questions. Normal date stuff- do you have siblings? what do you study at college? etc. After a couple brief 1 word answers he finally says "you know... you talk a lot". Ummm ok.

So he asks me if I want to see his "art". Absolutely. He pulls out his sketchpad from his backpack and starts showing me his drawings- very graphic sexual drawings of young Japanese Anime girls. Oh super.

Finally I got up and went to the bar, paid my tab and asked the bartender (an acquaintance of mine) to call my BFF who picked me up. I bailed and didn't say goodbye.

My HS friend later said "Oh he really liked you" and I was like wtf???

Metric I love that story.

I don't think I've had any truly terrible dates actually. I went out with a guy in college who was chair of the student press council because I wanted him to censure the competing campus newspaper for something or other. We went to a Mexican restaurant and he proceeded to drink a lot of beer; I was under 21. Then he wanted me to drive him home. I did not drive at the time. I walked home and left him there. I don't think this story is quite at the bad date level...and I was basically using him anyway. He was too drunk for me to get what I wanted out of him so it was just a waste of time.
