What I am about to briefly talk about is normally seen in movies. The character is walking along, a stranger is walking past, the suddenly the
stranger locks eyes with the character and says something that either the character doesn't understand or isn't quite sure what he heard, attempts
to talk to the stranger but the stranger appears to ignore them and/or continues walking/going on with their business like nothing ever happened.
This sort of thing usually happens in horror movies but I haven't experienced anything that appeared malevolent. For example:
Today I was walking home from work and some random female jogger comes up, locks eyes with me, then says something I completely don't understand!
When I tried responding several times, she just continued on jogging as if nothing ever happened!
Another time was in the early morning in front of a Safeway. I had stayed the night in my car out in the parking lot for I was traveling cross
country, I got out to go into the store to buy some things and as I approached an attractive young girl, who worked at the store, came out and as I
passed her buy she said something. Now as I approached her, it was as if she was looking past my left shoulder and not even close to making contact,
when she spoke I understood what she said but I didn't believe she was speaking to me (though apparently it might have been a direct compliment to
myself), after passing her I turned to look who she was talking to but there was no one there! So after realizing this I was surprised in believing
that she was actually talking to me, but she did not even turn around to look at me. It was eerily quite and even when I tried to greet her, it was as
if I was not there. It was as if time stood still for our entire interaction. No sound or action from anywhere else in the city it seemed. Creeped out
by this I continued into the store and gathered what few things I needed quickly and before I headed to the check out counter I had the strange
feeling I was being watched, and indeed I was. She was standing at the front of the store watching me the entire time. Normally I would find this
awesome since I don't get the attention of many gorgeous ladies but this was a little creepy. I pulled up to the only cashier and my things were
bagged by the girl who was now acting like she had never even seen me before. So I left and that was that.
I have had several other instances but most of them brief like the one with the jogger. Am I just crazy and imagining that people are saying/doing
these things or is it just that I have come across several random individuals who are hard of hearing or sense of courtesy?
