Maybe he saw you leave something on the counter at the store and wants to give it back, or maybe he’s a security guard or undercover cop making sure you’re not up to no good, or maybe, just maybe, he’s not actually following you at all, but just someone who has the misfortune of needing to traverse the same path as you a moment later. None if these justifies you turning around and beating him up because of your paranoia.
