Default WTF is wrong with people??

So last night my wife and I were shopping at the local Meijer when we notice some DB walking back and forth near the registers wearing all black, with his hood up and a sort of ski mask on. This I would expect someone to be dressed like that if they were quickliy running into the gas station or a party store, but come on in a f*cking Meijer. My wife sees him and immediately begins to get uncomfortable because about years ago she was robbed at gun point by a guy in a ski mask.

So a few minutes later we were at the self scan and realized we had forgot something; we didn't see the guy anymore so she sent me to get it. I was a few aisles away when I noticed that D*CK was standing there near the end of the self scan we were at just staring at my wife. She was so scared that she couldn't move. I quickly made my way over there and he walked into a group of people and took off. I followed, but couldn't find him once we got outside.

Obviously he noticed her reaction when she saw him and took advantage of that. WTF makes people think that things like that are OK?

At first that's what I thought, but the way he carried himself didn't quite point to that.

I would imagine that since you live in Lapeer this isn't the first guy you've seen like this, is it? Every time I head up that way I seem to run into a crack head.

In any event, I am sorry about your wife.

Why didn't you alert management? I would think they would remove him or the mask.

By the time I had left to pick up the few things we forgot we didn't see him around. So at that point it was no big deal.

In Lapeer? Where do these crackheads hide? I've never had an incident with anyone there that amounted to anything....

Honestly, I have lived here for about two and a half years and that was the first time I ran into someone acting like that. I guess it just depends on where you find yourself.

In any event, I am sorry about your wife.
Thanks I appreciate it. It just goes to show that you never truly forget.

At one point I would head up that way 1-2 times a week for years to visit friends, and it seems that whenever we went out someone would cross my path that seemed to be high on something.

Unfortunately idiots are everywhere now a days. Personally I have never had any problems around there in the last year. Will be moving to the area permanently in 6 weeks.

I personally love the area. I have never had any major problems at all, this guy just pissed me off.
Good luck with the move.

Yeah, that's a jerky thing to do. On Halloween my friends and I were doing a video scavenger hunt for part of our Halloween party. One of my friends was dressed as Rorschach from The Watchmen with the mask and everything. We went into Walmart and were trying to get another big bunch of costumed folks to help us with a challenge and an employee told him he couldn't wear the mask in the store. He wasn't being a dick or anything, but it's understandable why they don't allow that inside the stores.

I wonder if your wife just mistook the person for a muslim woman wearing a burqa. Man, don't ever take her to Dearborn. She'd prolly shit all over herself.
