Who The Heck Is This Guy?

Day 263/365: It happens that people forget, but it’s weird!

I was wondering this about one dude that was staring at me this morning at the coffee shop. Well, to be honest, we’re such a small city, we don’t even have a coffee shop, so we go for coffee at the gas station. Still, it’s a pretty decent coffee they serve up there, and for cheap.

Anyways, I was walking down to the register to pay for my overpriced hot chocolate (I don’t do coffee) and then saw this dude staring at me from one of the tables outside. Suddenly, I knew this guy knew me, but I had no idea why I couldn’t remember who he was.

Does this ever happens to you too, or am I deranged? I am deranged, but is this something extra that I should be worried about, or just a thing that happens?

I couldn’t figure out who the guy was, so I just left and got into my car. 3 minutes later, I got a text from him. He was one of my older colleagues from when I was working at one of my first newspapers. I was so embarrassed that I didn’t shake his hand, but he didn’t come to me either.

It’s such a weird situation when this happens. If you recognise me, why wouldn’t you come over and say hi? Just because I’m looking funny back at you, doesn’t mean I won’t say hi… if you tell me who you are! I’m just a human, after all, so it’s normal to not hold a memory for every single person I talked with or worked with or even had… a coffee with!

So the next time I’m going to experience this situation, I’ll just go ahead and ask for details. Let’s just hope I’m not going to go for a stalker or a psychopath…
