Has anyone else been asked by a random stranger to marry them in the parking lot of a gas station??? No, just me then. Alrighty. Good times.
Yes, that is a true story. I was in college and a guy randomly tells me he loves me, standing outside a gas station. I just stare at him, shocked at what I just heard, and then he says, with a totally serious look on his face....will you marry me?
Umm, no! Weirdo!
I guess I'll call him Creep 1.
Here are some stories of other creeps I've encountered.
Creep 2: Walking my dogs around the neighborhood, and a creepy guy sitting on his steps calls out to me. "Hey hottie", or something to that effect. After he asked me for my number, which I denied him, and asked if I wanted to "hang", at which point I started walking faster, I informed him I was married. Yet, that didn't stop him. This occurred several times over the course of a few months. He would always hit on me if he was out the same time as me. Once, he even started walking down the street behind me. After that, I started taking a different route, but I wasn't happy about it. I should be able to walk around my own neighborhood if I want to!
Creep 3: Walking through the Wal-Mart freezer section and a guy stops me to tell me that I was the most beautiful woman he's seen. He can't even focus on getting picking his frozen pizza because he's just staring me down. Ok then.
Creep 4: The most recent, and possibly the most creepy creep. Back-story: Our house had a leak in the roof a few weeks ago, and since the snow has melted and the weather has been nice, a crew has been coming to our house to work on it the past few days. It's 3 guys and usually they are around the back side of the house were I can't really see them. I see them walk past the living room windows to from to time getting supplies. And I hear them cutting wood and hammering and such throughout the morning. No big deal. Yesterday, I'm going about my normal day to day things, and doing some cleaning. I'm moping the kitchen and I look over out of the corner of my eye at the glass door in the kitchen. There, I see one of the guys standing by the door just staring at me. Looking in the window. Watching me moping. Not working. Not anywhere near supplies. I stopped mopping and look him dead in the eye. Luckily he decided it was time to move on. CREEPY!!!!!
What is it that attracts the creeps?
Am I the only one or do other people have weird things happen like this too?
Seriously, what possess people!?!
