Look out! There's a shadow behind you.
I think that is the goal, to have people scared of their own shadow, so they call police over every little thing.

Let's put this into your little world. Each day you come home. There at your door is the same person..asking the same request. Care to donate? And each day after work all you want is to go home and not be bothered by that same person insisting you donate . After awhile it's called harassing. , solicitation ..or being a public nuisance. Yup. In your little world you are graced with contacting the police to resolve this. And remind the person to cease. I'm glad folks are more attune to their surroundings and that one person who is two watts short of a dim bulb.

I think it's good the cops have talked to the mom, maybe she'll stop ruining her son's chances of ever getting laid.

Damn. I'm 45. Never been approached by a woman once. In my entire life.

Ever

Either I'm in the wrong places or am hideously ugly. Or both.

IMO, girls/women are more aggressive about asking the guys now. They often ask for lunch or coffee dates instead of a weekend night date.

They ran away, yes ran, before I even got the question out.

I also got a $25 parking ticket that day.
You could have been Ted Bundy.

I recently saw a program about how aggressive Chinese mothers can get when looking for a man for their daughters.
