I took the metro the other day and within a short period of time I was twice approached by creepy people. The first one was a big black guy who came sitting in front of me. I couldn’t help but notice something brown, round and smooth (no hair) just under the belly, and I thought well, it must be some special kind of leather belt. But then my eyes kept wanting to check if it was really a round belt or something else I suspected. Then I thought it’s a bit embarrassing to be looking always in that direction, and I was going to look away and concentrate on the windows when the guy moved his hand there and showed his penis. Yes, it was all out there. I could have left my place then, but I wasn’t really disturbed by the sight, more amused- which I admit is stupid, it’s obviously no laughing matter and the guy must have been quite disturbed to go like that in the paris metro in the middle of the day.
The second creepy encounter was much scarier though so much more banal. I was just walking, still in the metro looking at some ads on the wall and suddenly a guy came in front of me as if stumbling by error and putting his hands around me. I don’t think he really touched me, but I felt closed by the enemy.
I had a pretty bad day that day, and I’m wondering if these two creepy accidents were related to the whole day that went amiss. I don’t think I was inviting any of this, but maybe subconsciously creepy people have a sense of smell for this, like animals sensing they can take advantage of a weakness. I wonder if there is any solution to that?
