Heads up, neighbors. My husband and I encountered a very shady guy outside the SuperFresh. He was hanging around the stairwell and as we descended the stairs, we both decided he looked like he was up to no good and we should walk around the back through the parking lot rather than walk past him. As we made our way around, guess who popped up in front of us? Yep, and, not only did he try to cut us off at the pass, he decided to taunt us about it, too. "Hey, yoou guys went the whole way around there to avoid me?" We hung back and waited until he got some distance from us. He continued to hang at the corner near Darlings and look back at us, at which point, I called 911. He was clearly looking to mess with somebody, I don't know if he was drunk, mental, or looking to rob somebody, but he seemed to be waiting for us and we were done. I think he saw us on the phone, so he headed toward the Piazza. I never saw the police, and we took a wandering way home to make sure to avoid him.
Stay safe, and, call the police when your gut tells you somthing doesn't seem right. The only time I didn't follow my gut on that, I regretted it. In fact, I still do.
