Exactly last year, I was taking a very early lecture class. It started at 6:45 a.m. and ended at 8:00 but this particular morning my professor dismissed us at 7:30 ish.
I am a 22 year old female, about 5'0 and 120 pounds so I am not at all very threatening. I also always wore workout clothes at school because I head to the gym after class.
This morning though, I decided I would skip the gym and called my mom instead and told her I got out of class early and she told me to stop by Walmart before I get home so she can make some breakfast.
I decided to head all the way to my local neighborhood Walmart and since it is so early in the morning on a Monday (it is about 8:00 by now) there weren't many cars in the parking lot but
out of habit, I parked my car by the garden center which was completely empty and much further than all the other cars.
It was the only car there and the others were parked much closer to the Home and Market entrance.
So I go inside, purchase bread and a couple of other things and head back to my car and I open the back seat door to put my groceries in and notice how much trash I have all over my car.
I then use a Walmart bag and bend over to reach the trash under the seats and as soon as I am done I lift my head and in my rear view mirror I see
a large tan suburban stopped horizontally behind my car which is parked vertically. Sort of like when someone is just driving by, observing something.
My heart kind of begins to race and I get up, look behind me and I see a very creepy, completely disheveled grey/white haired man, glaring right at me.
The engine on his truck was still running,
it took me a good three minutes to pick up my trash so I had no idea how long he had been there watching me and he must have driven very quietly for me not to have heard him.
He was literally glaring at me very very seriously. I tried to act cool and casual and shut the door and quickly opened the drivers side door and got inside and pressed the lock button.
Since he was blocking me from behind and there were no other cars in front of me I was going to very easily just drive off ahead, but no.
As soon I I turned my car on he SPED around my car and parked directly in front of me, FACING me. I was freaking out at this point.
We were the only two parked cars this far out and if he really was a regular customer looking to go inside the store he could have parked ANYWHERE else, why did he do this so close to me.
I looked up and got even more freaked out because he was staring at me VERY intently, literally an angry, concentrated expression on his face.
Again, stupid me, I acted casual and pretended to text on my phone and waited to see if at any moment he was going to get out of his car and enter the store,
I DID NOT want to pull out and have him follow me.
I waited for 5 minutes, his engine was still running and he had not averted his gaze at all and it was pretty clear at this point that he was not going anywhere.
I suddenly ZOOMED out of the parking lot! Didn't even put my seat belt on, didn't even make any sudden movements I just switched gears in a second and stepped on the gas and zoomed out.
I drove all around the parking lot first in my attempt to lose him before I got out to make sure I was far enough away and I was very relieved when I didn't see him come after me.
I finally began exiting the parking lot and was going to take a right but was waiting on several other cars to pass me before merging on the street and that's when I saw him again.
He was on the far opposite lane from me, going left and he drove by very very slowly and continued glaring at me.
I got chills throughout my entire body and was SO SO afraid of running into him or him making a U turn and catching up with me.
I literally drove around for 10 minutes and made sure I didn't see him before going home. Every now and then I STILL think about it and shudder.
What was he doing and what were his intentions? So creepy.
