Summer Psycho at the Improv

This event happened to me last summer so I may be a little fuzzy on the details; however, I remember enough. This event occurred during either the third or fourth day of a week long field trip that the oldest age group of my camp, and our sister camp attends. Our camps are in Massachusetts and we were in California for the trip.

Now, enough background information, time for my story. My friends and I were at a theater awaiting to watch some form of improv. Side note, I normally hate improv. So anyway, we were waiting inside for our sister camp to show up. Ten minutes into waiting a loud noise lifted everyone’s head off of their recently regained phones, to the entrance doors. About four kids, me being one of them, and two councilors approached the thankfully locked doors. What we saw will be burned into my memory: a tall, slender, almost skeletal, balding, dirty man banging with his fist on the door with obviously all his strength, and he was yelling in a raspy voice “LET ME IN!!”. My friends and I began to back up and tried to hide. I know right, a cluster of sixteen year olds scared of one man. We were scared that the door wouldn’t hold this psychotic, high, homeless, and or insane drug addict for long. Then one of my friends who had just left the bathroom, Jack, heard the man yelling and did the most stupid thing ever! He walked towards the door and extended his hand to the door before, in unison, we shouted “Jack”! Thankfully, Jack walked away from the door; however, the man was still yelling.

Soon we no longer heard yelling and the councilors called the cops. Who showed up, a policeman on a non motorized bicycle who looked like a rookie. After taking the councilors statement and leaving, we began to calm down and started ripping on Jack for almost getting us killed. Just then, the heavy locked exit door, which I was sitting in front of started getting pounded from outside and we heard a muffled let me in. Afraid I moved; however, it quickly died down and nothing like that happened for the rest of the night.

A few minutes later the girls came, we watched the show, I nearly crapped myself laughing at the show despite it was improv ‘based’. Before the summer, I had began listening to narrators such as darkness prevails, lazy masquerade, be-busta, corpse husband, and mr.nightmare; however, I never would have believed that an event similar to their narrated stories would occur to me. Now I pay much more attention to their stories so that I know how to get out of situations like this, just in case something freaky occurs to me again. So, homeless, insane, and or drug addict, I have two think to say, get help and let’s never meet again.

Mcdonalds Pervert

I am a 14 year old male and I was 12 when this story took place.

So my parents work with my uncle and aunt at this big race they hold every summer and on sometimes we go. Well this year it was being held behind a K-mart because there was an old field no one used.

So after it starts my cousin, who we’ll call Ben, says we should go find something to do since we were getting bored. Me, my sister and brother, who I’ll call Sarah and Tom, and Ben decide to head towards the town. We goof off in the K- mart store for awhile, kicking balls, making loud noises really just doing what kids do and after we got kicked out we headed for the McDonald’s across from K-mart.

Our plan was to sneak in with a family then sneak out with a new one. So as we are playing in the play area I get this strange feeling and I ask Ben about it and he says he felt it too. We look all over and we see this man in tattered old clothes sitting just watching the kids play. We ignored the feeling and just kept playing. This is when things got bad.

We were about to leave the McDonald’s so we got our shoes and were putting them on. That’s when I saw my sister cornered by that guy. Me and Ben are both 12 but look older then we are which helps sometimes so we approach him and asked if he had a problem. He said no and that he was just asking for her age. Then Tom said to back off, which was a stupid move since Tom is really short and has hardly any muscle. The guy then asked if she was seeing anyone. I said no and that she was only 9. He was some kind of pervert hitting on a little girl.

Well age doesn’t matter to me, he said and then reached for her. That’s when I nailed him right in the face and it took Ben and Tom to get me off the guy. The employees came to see what was wrong then called the cops.

The cops came and arrested this guy. As we walked out the guy was in the car waving and smiling at us so I mouth f*** off and start walking away.

We didn’t tell our parents until later that night and then we forgot about it. So the pervert from McDonald’s should hope to never run into me again because next time no one will be able to stop me.

Mcdonald’s Perve

So my parents work with my uncle and aunt at this big race they hold every summer and on sometimes we go. Well this year it was being held behind a K-mate because there was an old field no one used.

So after it starts my cousin, who we’ll call Ben, says we should go find something to do since we were getting bored. So me, my sister and brother, who I’ll call Sarah and Tom, and Ben head towards the town.

This is when things got bad we were about to leave the McDonalds so we got our shoes and were putting them on. That’s when I saw my sister cornered by that guy. Me and Ben are around 11 and 12 but look older then we are which helps sometimes so we approach him and asked if he had a problem.

He said no and that he was just asking for her age. Then Tom said to back off, which was a stupid move since Tom is really short and has hardly any muscle. The guy then asked if she was seeing anyone. I said no and that she was only 9. Well age doesn’t matter to me and then reached for her.

As we walked out the guy was in the car waving and smiling at us so I mouth f off and start walking away. We didn’t tell our parents until later that night and then we forgot about it.

So the peeve from McDonalds never run into me again because next time no one will be able to stop me.

7:34

Okay, so to tell this story I have to mention a very important life lesson that helps me all the time, always trust you gut instinct…always. Now on with the story, I was about 16 at the time and my nephews first birthday was coming up so I decided to go to wal-mart to pick up a toy for cheap, yeah auntie of the year right? Well as I was going up and down the toy isle I saw a little girl maybe around 5 years old looking at the barbie toys. Now I wanted the hot wheels and I wasn’t going to find them on the barbie isle, so I went to turn and walk away. But that is when I saw the little girl wasn’t alone anymore.

A man had appeared from the other end of the isle, I stepped back then forward. This man was not her father but the way he was lingering by her made me very uncomfortable. The little girl didn’t look up from the toys and I didn’t see anyone near bye to help me in case I had to fight off a possible kidnapper. I pretended to browse the toys meanwhile taking every detail in of the man. dark jean pants, dirty green coat, skinny build he was no more than 5’3, red hat-oh no-. when I went to look at the details of his face I noticed he caught me staring, his eyes were dark. Not the color I mean dark as in evil…it sent a chill down my spine.

How long was he staring? I decided not to back down and thought about my nephew. what if that were him? I would want someone to stand up and fight off this creep. I didn’t just stand my ground I walked up to them both, ignoring the mans piercing gaze of hatred. I leaned down to the little girl and asked where her mommy was. She didn’t say anything just gestured and began to lead me. I looked up at the man and his face was twisted and enraged. I gave him a smirk, I honestly felt good about it. I met up with the little girls mom and told her about the man and how he gave me a bad vibe. She thanked me profusely and I got my present for the party and left never seeing the man again.

Until I was finishing up a paper for school while my mom was watching TV, she always had it blaring it was hard not to hear what was on even from rooms away I heard “and in other news a man has been caught by authorities in a wal-mart in *censored* county, for a crime caught on security footage.” That county was only a couple miles away from me. I jumped out of my seat to see the screen and sure enough it was him.

His crime was exposing himself to a young girl and her mother. It made me sick to my stomach just seeing his face again. It happened the same night I went to pick up a toy, just at a different wal-mart. I was sad that it happened regardless even though I prevented it from happening at my local wal-mart. But I wouldn’t have done anything differently. So for any of you fighting against that instinct trying to write it off as paranoia. Don’t.

Walmart Creeper

Walmart Creeper by Cody Robbins

I was 13 at the time this happened and I’m 14 now

. Me and 3 other friends wanted to have some fun because teenagers like us being the stupid type wanted to go to Walmart at 10:30. Me and my friend I’ll call him Hunter, he was 17,  we convinced the girls, I’ll call them Bella and Madison, to go to Walmart. We proceeded to go at this time in a bad area of South Carolina.

We went in I didn’t feel anything irregular at first so we went on doing pranks and screwing around like most teenagers. As we were about to jump in a ball basket, again I was 13, I heard “come over here” I thought it was only me at first but then I looked at Hunter and he looked weirded out. Him being the oldest said let’s go get some drinks and a movie and let’s get out of here. He looked scared which made me scared and the girls scared too.

As we walked to the food aisles I saw him hooded, in all black, and he was a very pale man. I told hunter that the creepy dude had said that was behind us.

We went into the snacks aisle. He followed us. I yelled “hey man screw off”. He looked at us with a very eerie smile and we went up and down the aisles trying to lose him. When he was gone Madison had to use the restroom. Us being dumb and young we let her go alone. And to this day I regret letting her go in that Walmart bathroom alone.

The three of us continued shopping until…. I heard a scream that made my face go white. It came from the bathroom and that was Madison’s voice I ran into the bathroom. I tried to stop him by yelling stop. But he wouldn’t he was there in front of her and she couldn’t do anything she was sitting there still. I had to step in. I ran at the pedophile of a man and tackled him. I helped Madison up and we all ran out of that bathroom. We floored it out of there. I didn’t know if that man was high but to this day I don’t know if he got caught…
