I have been in her situation, and I can tell you that it is not fun. In fact, it can be downright terrifying. When a stranger starts following you and won’t leave you alone, what are you supposed to do? If you are polite, they will take it as an invitation to invade your personal space. If you are blunt and tell them to leave you alone, they might turn violent (especially if they are intoxicated) and your safety will be at an incredible risk. So when you can’t provoke them and you can’t be nice to them either, what are you supposed to do?! This girl’s story is just too terrifying.
I can feel her anger and frustration as she is writing this post. I can feel her helplessness when a passing stranger ignores them completely. I can feel her fear of not being able to get away from this imposing guy who is scaring her. If you see this happening, she offers one way to help out. Engage the stranger. Let him know that he has been seen and his company isn’t wanted. One person might have trouble doing this on their own, but two people can easily ward off a pushy person like this. This story really is unsettling!
