Are you someone, or do you know someone who attracts weirdo's? Before, I owned a car, I used to have to ride the city buses everywhere I went and there were some strange people riding most of the time. I always stayed to myself and would hide in the back of the terminal so people would leave me alone, but it always seemed that they would find me. I have had complete strangers tell me things I wouldn't admit to anyone. Once, I had a person come up to me ask me for a cigarette and then started telling me in detail about their mate's cheating. The details that were shared with me were vulgar and very descriptive and I was horribly uncomfortable. I wonder if any of you have people do this to you? If you do, how do you deal with these situations?

Heck it happens to me ALL THE TIME!! (without the vulgar part) People see my face/eyes and I guess they trust me or something. I'll give you examples: people(I can't give more details) that work in a school near my house after talking simple short conversations with them with them have confide in me all their employment frustrations, issues with people in charge/boss and have told me all the juicy stuff that happens in that area of employment. When they start telling me all this I feel uncomfortable and worry someone might hear and this person could get fired. Just recently at walmart this woman was helping me cover the merchandise because it was raining really hard. While she was helping me and me waiting for the rain to stop she started telling all the juicy stuff with her job too. Co-workers in charge doing really abusive stuffs to her etc etc etc can't say more. She trusted me so I will keep the secret for her. Anyway I can relate to you.

Hello Mady2791. It is uncomfortable for people you barely know tell you stuff like that. I understand your wanting not to go into detail. If you noticed, I was also tyring not to offer to much, but wanted to make my point. I am glad that I am not the only one out there. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I enjoyed them.
