I went to the store today with little phia. While their this guy comes up to me looks at Phia and tells me how pretty she is and what a luck mom I am. I said thanks and went on with my shopping. He then asks if I have a hubby. Yup I tell him happily. He again tells me how beautiful my baby is and goes on to say that if he were my hubby he wouldn't let me or phia out of the house. I can handle when a guy hits on me (doesn't happen as often anymore but you know smile and go on) but him including phia in the banter and following me while I shop (walking away and not looking at him was not hint enough apparently) was just creepy. I told DH that he had to go shopping with me next time or I was going to the more expensive store. blech
Anyway I just had to share that creepiness today :?eyebrow:

I'm a 911 operator and I found that disturbing as hell. :( It probably will never happen to you again but that is frightening. He could be on drugs or he could be mentally ill. Or, he's just a social misfit. You could notify the police but if I were you, I would call the store management. This way they can call the police if they see him come in again and start bothering someone else. I'm sure they wouldn't want that stuff happening in the store.
It is creepy and has happened to me a few times when my oldest son was in kindergarten I use to walk him to school and the garbage men use to hoot and holler at my son would ask me why they were doing that and I would say "They are just being rude ignore them"then one day I turned to look as my 5 year old was flipping them the bird!!!I asked him were he learned it and he said his friend Jake told him it was the golden finger and you use it when people are being rude I almost died but they never did it again!!!!! It is unbelievable what some guys think is ok to do I have also had men ask my son for our phone number!
