A woman’s habit of ignoring strangers who try to talk to her in the city leads to a frightening encounter with a neighbor in the suburbs, causing a rift between her and her mother.
A Scary Encounter
Recently, a woman who had moved back home to take care of her mother, had a frightening encounter with a stranger while walking to the library.
Ignore and Carry On
In the city, she was used to ignoring strangers who tried to talk to her, but in the suburbs, her mother’s friend thought it was inappropriate.
As she was walking, a man in a front yard called out to her, but she kept walking.
Phone a Friend
When she walked by his yard, he started following her. She took out her phone and called her best friend, leaving a voicemail with her location and a description of the man following her. The man stopped following her.
He Posted Her!
Later, her mother showed her a Facebook post from her neighborhood group. It was a picture of her from a distance taken by a doorbell camera.
A Suspicious Person
The post said there was a “suspicious” person that the guy, a resident, tried to “greet” and who totally ignored him then got on the phone describing where he lives, what he looks like, and was talking about having a bunch of guys in a truck come by.
Her Mother Was Upset
The woman laughed and told her mother her side of the story, thinking she would find it funny. However, her mother was upset and thought she had acted inappropriately.
Everyone Knows Everyone Here
She said that in the suburbs, people get to know and trust each other, and her mother’s friend was just trying to see if she was from around there and look out for the neighborhood.
Bad People are Everywhere
The woman disagreed and said that bad people are everywhere, and she wasn’t going to talk to someone who was acting like that.
Don’t Follow Young Girls
She thought her mother’s friend was looking bad for following a girl who wasn’t trying to talk. Her mother was upset with her, and she was upset with her mother.
A Bad Lesson
“Do you really want to be teaching your daughter to be talking with strangers who follow her down the street,” she said. “Okay, this was a misunderstanding, but most of the time it’s bad news, and I ain’t doing that.”
The Internet Responded
This commenter wrote, “You are absolutely correct to be freaked out by someone following you when you did nothing wrong, (in fact what you did was very street smart!)”

Another person said, “You don’t have to greet a total stranger if you don’t want to. Yes some people will view that as rude, but they don’t get to dictate your actions.”
