Yes.And to this day I'm convinced that this "man" was actually a ghost.I could be wrong though. I was sitting outside smoking a cigarette when suddenly I saw him walking up my drive way. It caught me by surprise and I jumped up and said to him Can I help you with something? His reply was just "Beautiful night,isnt it?" The moon is looking lovely". It was cloudy and may even have been drizzling a bit. I just said somethIng to the effect of Do you need something? He just said Just thought I'd say hello. I'm out for my evening stroll. I said something like I'd appreciate it if you got off of my property. He simply said Okay,I'm going to head on down the street now.I have to pay someone a visit. but I'll be seeing you around.
Something about this man was disturbing.His tone of voice was so robotic as was his movement. It was just odd.Like something was off. I NEVER react that way to strangers,ever.Never saw the man again. I even walked down to the end of my driveway to see where he was going. He was nowhere to be found.
Have you ever encountered someone who immediately gave you the heebie jeebies?

I was reading recently about Narcissistic Sociopaths, and it's estimated that as many as 1 in 16 people could be diagnosed as Narcissistic Sociopaths, which okay, not quite the same thing as flat-out evil. But I was shocked at how common it was. It really explains a lot about why the world is the way it is.
Digression aside, yes, I've met a few people who were just flat-out evil too.

Is it possible he wasn't evil at all, and instead you were just projecting your own fears?
I mean, he didn't do anything. It was just a feeling you got. What a horrible place the world would be if we all just handed down judgement based on nothing but our first impressions. If that were the case, I'd be writing you off as someone who chases flags and stars, uses ATS for social media, but rarely contributes anything of value to ATS.
But I know better than that. =]

S + F! Can't believe you had to meet a man with bushy eyebrows--evil incarnate! And he smiled and had teeth, you say? *shudders* ...and to think that he didn't even do anything evil in your story..that's especially horrifying
In my dealings with evil men they stole stuff, and threatened people, and put a gun to my neck. But SnF for this truly evil encounter you bravely shared with us.

Sometimes our first impressions are completely off base. Next time you have a bad feeling about someone I encourage you to try to get to know them, just a little.
