By Anonymous - Canada
Today, while I was walking home alone, a homeless man approached me and took me by the hand. Apparently, he's been watching me for weeks and has fallen madly in love with me. He told me not to worry, though; he's not a rapist. FML

Now I'm pissed.

Someone just copied this shit and put it on reddit... That or OP posted it in two places. For the sake of my faith in F7U12, please tell me you posted this there...

31- Hi, welcome to Canada. If you walk around with a pistol out in the open and you're not a cop, you get tasered or shot and depending on which, dragged to jail or dragged to the morgue. :p
Kinda hard to legally have one and the conditions for owning one as a civilian, are strict.

56 - yeah I don't understand that. If someone is going to be willing to commit a crime, which is illegal, who's to stop that person from illegally owning a weapon.

63- By that logic alone, you would be correct. Making something illegal usually works for people not willing to do something illegal. Restricts the law abiders, but doesn't affect the "bad guys", right?
Well, I didn't say I supported gun control per say, it's more I've accepted it and the idea an illegal firearm is more difficult to procure to someone who doesn't need it, is a mild comfort.

74- I already presumed you were American, and certainly knew you weren't Canadian, based on your response alone. However, the Only reason I said "Welcome to Canada" was to point out that Op Was Canadian, hense, in all likelihood, did not have normal access to pistols. :p
Mind you, she could go get a shotgun a lot easier....with the same reaction from police if she starts carting that around carelessly as well. ;)

2- Is it bad that my mind automatically jumped to: "Fuck tasers, get a sawed-off shotgun!" after reading your comment?

I've been watching too many zombie movies. :(

83, It also protects people from the idiots whose only barrier to these crimes is access, and the other idiots who carry guns around because they're afraid of everything and are extremely dangerous because it doesn't take much to set them off.

The comment about the taser is a perfect example of what I mean, if she has a taser she's likely to use it because she's scared when in reality it may be a case of overkill. The guy sounds reasonably harmless, just a little mentally off. So get a taser if you feel safer with it, but make absolutely sure you don't use it unless he's actually attacking you...

63: It's a trick question. It's impossible to deter all crime--even if every single person was a cop and carried a shotgun, there'd still be crime, it'd just be committed by cops and more people would have shotguns.

Deterrence is a shitty strategy for controlling crime. Prevention is cheaper and more effective, and fewer people end up getting shot.

Well he's homeless right? He has nothing to do but watch people and sleep. Besides, of he's been watching you for weeks that means you've walked down that same path home for weeks. I kinda feel bad for that homeless guy though.

And of course you feel completely comfortable with his infatuation, right? So, declining him couldn't possibly entice a negative reaction, could it? Being that he's not a rapist and all... :p
Scary, and sorry, Op.

Yep, with some work, OP could get rid of the stalker. A different route home, pepper spray, sled defense classes and more runs are pretty effective and if not, alert the authorities.

Sled Defense would be a pretty cool band name. For some reason, though, all I can picture is a bunch of elves beating each other with those long, plastic downhill sleds. I'd pay to see both.

(Maybe) give him a chance?

Just don't go home with him after dates until you KNOW for sure he is safe.

And carry a taser and pepper spray for safety!

At least you know you're loved!! (^_^)/

OP: Thanks for taking me out to dinner, I had a great time.
HP: Anytime, so did I. Are you free next Friday?
OP: Yep! I guess I'll see you then?
HP: You can count on that. You're paying, right?
OP: Uh.. Sure? See you next week.
HP: See you!
OP: *walks inside*
HP: *crawls under luxurious cardboard box*

This is love, you guys.

I feel like an idiot, I should have hit the next page button on the comments, mine sounds like a ripoff of the one above because it was hidden on my phone... -face palm-
