Hmmm...You seem to be a violent man. Is there any other solution? this is the silliest response I have heard so far.

maybe keep one alive to question.

I'd watch them back, while making it obvious of course...we live in a surveillance society now but I stick two fingers up to it...and no good calling the police - they're part of it lol

Christine, I was being glib in my answer here the other day but I was pretty sure you were discussing what Charlotte has addressed here just now. I am not doing anything to be ashamed of or that is against my govt. So I don't really care if they are watching me. but if a certain party ever takes control, I might have to pay the piper for what I said about them in all my personal emails. haha (hope society does not ever take it to a level where we will be penalized for expressing our opinions!)

You are getting to the real issue here

I have no idea what you mean by this. If a stranger is watching me just out of interest on the street or something, I will be flattered but you never know, it could be a crazy person , so I definitely would not make eye contact,and I'd hurry and get to the most public place possible if the stranger was being creepy about it. Now if it's actually people (plural) and it's obvious they are all watching me, I'd run like hell. hahaha

hahaha. are you kidding me? Picture yourself late at night all alone and a bunch of biker dudes are the only ones watching you and they all have their stares focused just on you. well, I wouldn't run, but I would walk VERY quickly. hahaha

Thanks Andrea, but I didn't know that you were such a coward? (LOL)
Date: 8/16/2013 1:55:00 AM
Christine...caution! Be cautious. Take precautions...play it safe! Change your routine...Somehow try to scare them off. Look defiant and NOT worried...Weakness will work against you. Don't take this lightly, Christine....Better be safe than sorry! DO what you have to! You have me worried!
