Yesterday's Acme trip: situational awareness edition.
I noticed a guy following me around. Looking away if he thought I was noticing him. I thought maybe he was puzzled by OC.
A few minutes and a few aisles go by. "If you're waiting for Seafood they're closed for the night."
He shook his head no. I didn't feel threatened so I kept shopping, but went to the other end of the shop to see what would happen. Sure enough, there he was. Then I thought he was getting up the nerve to ask me out for coffee and I prepared my "No Thank You" speech like I was getting ready for the Oscars. Yes, this is a thing women have to do, because dudes have been known to get violent when you decline their offer.
I head to a different aisle and am ready to ask, 'WTF is going on' when he comes up to me.
"I like your tattoo. Are you getting dinner for your kids?"
Then I understood. He was mentally challenged and liked the colors of my tattoo. He was still 6'5, 400 worth of challenged but he went on his way, sweetly.
