Something weird happened to me just tonight. I was at a gas station, using the rest room while DH filled the tank and a woman who had been touching up her make up when I walked in sudden shouted out a question. I didn't think she was addressing me, after all, I was having a bit of a private moment, and for all I knew she had a cell phone. She started asking "are you guys headed to StreetName?"(approx 4mi away) Then a pause and "I'm stranded here, and I need to get to StreetName" By that time I had exited the stall and was walking up to wash my hands. She got kind of in my space, continuing to move closer to me, and looking at me expectantly. And that's when I realized she had been talking to me the whole time. Then we had the following conversation:
Me "No, actually headed the other way"
Her: "oh, well, I'm stuck here and trying to get to StreetName."
Me: "sorry to hear that, good luck."
Her: "are you sure you're not headed to StreetName? I'm not a crazy person or a weirdo, I"m just stranded here."
Me: drying my hands "Nope, sorry. Actually headed to OtherStreet, completely opposite direction." (actually a little fib, I was headed to CloserStreet only 2mi in the opposite direction, but told her OtherStreet which is 4mi. Mainly because she was giving off a creepy vibe.)
Her: "Sigh, well, do you know anyone who is headed to StreetName?"
"um, no. I don't personally know anybody at this gas station. I think there's a bus that runs to StreetName. Good luck"
and I bolted. Luckily for me, in the process of getting into my personal bubble while washing my hands, she moved. So when I bolted, she was no longer between me and the door, and I was able to get out of there. It was just weird all around. Especially when she asked if I knew anyone who was headed to StreetName. I'm not a regular at the gas station or anything, why would I know someone there? And it was pretty slow at the time. Unless she wanted me to call someone I did know who just happened to be in the area and headed towards StreetName?
