Crazy bast**d

Yesterday. I had to cross the border to pick up supplies. I was having trouble getting the trolley pass machine to work. A 40 something year-old man in line behind me helped me and I got my ticket. I said thank you very much and as I turned to walk away I lightly patted him on the shoulder and smiled at him. He jumped back, acting as if he had been bitten by a snake, and he went absolutely ballistic and stared screaming at me. I said, "Oh, sorry". He moved in towards me and I said, "Hey, chill out. I was only thanking you."

If it had not been for my size and height, I think he would have attacked me. Huh ? What in the world happened?

Re: Crazy bast**d

Perhaps he just did not like being touched - some people don't - especially not by strangers - and you had already thanked him.

or

Perhaps he had been mugged sometime in his past and was still a bit jumpy.

or

Perhaps he was an illegal and thought you were a cop!!

Re: Crazy bast**d

here, patting him on the shoulder may mean
a - you're gay
b - you think he's gay
c - you think he's a pet dog

Gee. that never occurred to me. I am, by nature, a tactile guy. When I pat a guy on the shoulder it is a gesture of 'thank you" or "Good job, fellow". Or often just plain friendship.

Perhaps he was just mental?

Yes, I'm thinking he was just plain wacko. For my entire adult life, I have not changed my inter-personal behavior when interacting with people. I must have done the same to thousands of men in my whole life and nothing remotely like that has ever happened to me before. I mean seriously, it's not like I grabbed his ass. I merely lightly patted his shoulder.

Re: Crazy bast**d

Just an unfortunate event mate.I can see both sides. You were totally innocent in your action. You know that. But as was said some people just don't like being touched by somebody they don't know. They have their reasons which you can never know if you don't know them. I am a friendly person but I have a big personal space. I loathe being touched by people I don't know.
