So I was at Aldi buying groceries (cute lil vegan things) and this man (maybe in his 60’s??)
Turns around and says to me “do you feel as good as you look?” With a smile and I just????? I’m really tired because I haven’t been sleeping well lately and I said back to him “well I look like trash so that sums up how I feel too’
And his smile LIKE dropped and he said ‘you women now a days don’t know how to take a compliment. I bet not many young men come and approach you with compliments like I just did’
And I kinda just….like????? Shut down for a second because kill bill sirens were going off in my head and then I fake laughed and just like looked around and made sure that my cart was in front of me.
Anyways we’re still in line and he starts talking to me again he said "I bet most people when they see me think that I’m homeless but they are right about one thing, I do have a home’ and then he winked at me and I like fake laughed again but I’m still like what the fuck what the fuck?
Then he got wrung up and left so the lady behind me (had to have been like 27) starts talking to me and like asking me questions while I paid for my stuff
And then when I was putting my groceries in the car I kept checking my back because he like really freaked me out and was still in the parking lot. And the same lady who started up conversations with me in like got in her car and waited until I got in my car and didn’t drive away until I drove away and halfway into my drive home I realized she stayed in her car and talked to me in line because she could see how freaked the fuck out I was
And like now I’m crying because I told my roommates and I left my fucking phone here in the apartment and that’s just so scary. Like nothing happened besides him being creepy but I’m so on edge now
Anyways I’m so grateful for that woman. And I wish her so much good karma and good vibes because that means so FUCKING much to me
