Another week has gone by and I thought I was going to have that book review for you – perhaps next week. The topic for this week is however an interesting one. How many of you actually observe other people when you are out and about running errands or doing whatever? Perhaps it’s a perk of mine but I pay attention to detail and I notice people and their actions.
A couple of days ago my husband and I were out running errands and doing some shopping and we went to this ‘mom and pop’ store; we go there on a fairly regular basis and as I was waiting in line, my husband was chatting with one of the female employees (as we always do when we go in there). I noticed again the owner as he spotted my husband talking to this employee (he wasn’t keeping her from doing her work) and his mannerisms and facial expressions did a complete 180 – the fury, anger, hatred all expressed on his face and though I could not read his mind, I knew the thoughts. I can read people pretty well. He then went to the back to get another female employee to come out front to interrupt the conversation between my husband and the woman he was talking to.
This is not the first time and it got me to thinking about three-dimenisonal characters and serial killers who seemed normal like Ted Bundy and Scott Peterson – and I began to make a mental profile of this man. He has all the qualifications (if you could call it that of a serial killer or stalker). He’s not good-looking, he’s short and I’m figuring he was bullied when he was growing up. I believe he has a complex where he feels he has to compete with men and he thinks he is God’s gift to women in his mind. Also, I believe he wants to have or has had a sexual relationship with the female in question as well as other females in the store. I think he looks at porn on his computer and though he seems like your average, normal guy – I think he has sick thoughts.
Perhaps I’ve watched too many crime shows and read too many novels but that is just my take on the situation. When working in the public one should remain professional at all times, keeping the personal feelings out of it, after all it is a business. And you never know who is watching you.
I’m praying all my friends and family to be safe during Hurricane Florence. We went shopping this morning for some last minute items to get us through the storm in case we lose power. So stay safe everyone! Until next time. Enjoy this photo from Pixabay. It reminds me of the upcoming weather.
