I wished to submit my own true scary story for your Scary Strangers and Creepy Stalkers request. I unfortunately have a terminal case of “nice” thanks to the way I was raised so I do sometimes give people more patience than they need. I’m not one to make waves unless provoked. This has sometimes been beneficial to me and a hindrance at other times.
Where I live is a very small town so everyone knows the latest news on everyone else. I frequently see the same people when running my errands so avoiding someone can be very difficult.
