Hello everyone =) I joined a few days ago, and I think I've read this entire community journal. It's great. I thought my friend Madaline and I were the only people who had an odd interest for all things ghetto that we didn't take seriously (make sense?). Anyway, I noticed a hella ghetto interest you guys left off your interests page:
"shoes hanging from telephone poles"
I'd say that has to be a pretty common landmark (and warning!) for entering any hella sketchy neighborhoods.
But yeah, I suppose I'll share a sketchy tale with you. Okay, where I live, all the government buildings are downtown, and downtown is a pretty creepy place with just as equally odd critters walking about, especially if you're by yourself. Anyway, my friend had to go to the Social Security building to get a print-out of her SSN for something (I forget ^^;). She said when she was waiting in the waiting room, this guy walked up next to her, stuck his hand down his pants and then proceeded to fondle himself. Yuck! Not only that, he whipped out his piece (Ew! Ew! Ew!) and she told me that she pretended not to notice, but then freaked out and told the guard that was on duty at the time. She then told me that the guy touching himself left the building and the guard pretty much shrugged it off. What the heck is that all about? What was the purpose of him serving as a security guard if he wasn't going to do anything? Well, anyway, this leads to the next part of my story. A few weeks after this incident occurred, another friend called me after spending a day downtown to take care of some car title business. He told me that when he was stopped at a light there was this really creepy guy standing at the corner fondling himself and really getting into it. WTF, you may ask. I don't know. But this is now the third part of the story. Just a few months after the last incident, I was driving through (not doing any business, just driving through) downtown, and when I had stopped at a stop light, lo and behold, there was a really creepy man, pacing the same two squares of sidewalk getting it on with his hand. In public, no less! I was totally bothered by it, and really wanted to start moving, lest he noticed me, so I made an unnecessary right-turn. I was totally grossed out! =\ But anyway, the sketchiest part of this whole story is that the guy had been reported more than once (because after I had actually seen him, I heard stories of him from other friends), and was still walking around with his hand down his pants noticeably rubbing himself. I really hope someone has been keeping an eye on that guy. He was really creepy. And hella sketchy.
