Man Slashed Up To 1,000 Tires To Meet Women

The slasher would use a sharp screwdriver or other sharp object to slash a car tire of a woman that he fancied.  When the victims returned to their vehicles he would come and offer help,  striking up a conversation,  and sometimes get lucky with obtaining their phone numbers and going on a date.

"One woman who fell victim to Harada’s scheme told a female friend of hers, “I recently got a flat and a man offered to change it for me.” Upon hearing the story the friend exclaimed, “The same thing happened to me!” Suspecting a scam, the women reported the matter to police who launched an investigation. Harada appeared in court wearing a grey shirt and slacks. At times it appeared he would break down in tears. When questioning the defendant about further similar offenses, his lawyer said, “There were about 1,000, weren’t there?”

Some lawyer!

So this is what I need to do to land dates.

Pssssh. I never get pass the first date. This means I need to follow them home, slasher their tires, and then just causally show up out of nowhere to help them... Then I'll just call that the second date.

Doesn't sound like a very fun second date, lol! I don't even worry about it anymore myself. If it happens it happens - if it doesn't it doesn't. I immensely enjoy being alone so it hardly matters.
