Better safe than sorry I guess! He should have waved the bill around!
Today, I noticed someone leaving the parking garage. She dropped a 5-dollar-bill. I picked it up and tried to return it to her, but when I caught up to her, she turned around and threatened to spray me with mace. FML.
Why are people so goddamn mistrusting these days? Are you that much of a paranoid bitch that you can't turn around for 2 seconds to see what he wanted? Come on!
I used to be a super trusting person and people abused it. Now I have a lot more problems trusting people. It's not paranoia, it's protection and learning from mistakes. I'm glad you've had the pleasure of safety but unfortunately not everyone gets that basic human right :(
See if someone was chasing me I wouldn't have stopped but if I did I would probably have just kicked them anyways so your smarter than me for actually giving him a chance to say that he was giving you your five bucks back. You don't deserve it in my opinion because you really can't trust anyone in todays society.
YDI. Not every man is trying to get into your pants, you could have taken the three seconds it takes to turn and notice what he was saying.
when someone gets attacked by a dog and thus becomes afraid of all dogs no one bats an eye. when someone gets attacked by a man and becomes afraid of all men they get bombarded with 'stop being so paranoid, not every man is out to get you' it's perfectly understandable as to why OP was scared of the guy, you never know if they plan to mug you, or do something like returning a lost item. if I were walking alone and someone yelled at me to stop I'd have done the same thing unless they told me I've dropped something.
Had I been the guy, seeing the mace, I would've said to myself, "Screw this, I'm keepin' them $5." Jesus, must everybody whip-out their little aerosols and tasers every time a man you don't know gets within 5 feet of you? Now if he's gagging you with a chloroform-soaked rag, I can understand...
