Before, I used to go to Starbucks at lunchtime and paint. I really didn't mind people coming up to me, complimenting my painting. These were respectable people I didn't mind talking to at all. But now due to personal reasons, I have to study during lunchtime (tough job situation, added housework at home) Now it seems when I am studying, all the weirdos and creeps come up to me. One person says I look beautiful from behind. Honestly, I have my hair tied, wearing long sweater, and long maxi skirt. I'm not dressing for attention, but professionally for my job. I tell them I am at my lunch hour, and I am busy studying, as this is the only time I have, and that I cannot talk to them. Still they do not go away and they want to know my name, and whether they will see me again Then I said it is up to Jesus to decide whether they will see me again (I mean, this guy was a weirdo, creepy, but I figure if I invoke Jesus, then person may go away). When I left the person gave me envelope with his name. I guess he was soliciting money for some charity in his native country (but at Starbucks? and disturbing people who don't want to be disturbed?) I took the envelope and when I was outside, I tore it and threw it away. How to politely tell weirdos to go away? This happened once before a year ago while I was studying at Starbucks. Some old, fat, creepy guy who bought food from outside of Starbucks saying he is an attorney, he is an attorney. Perhaps to intimidate me so I don't call police on him for bothering me? Freaks!!!! And if I get angry and scream and say "go away", the weirdo may get angry and do something, and no one would come to my aid. And if I call police, then it creates unnecessary scene, and police may think there is something wrong with me because I could not handle weirdo. Plus it wastes what little time I already have. This has been bugging me past few days. Now I am scared to go to Starbucks because that weirdo may be there, looking for me! I really like Starbucks coffee. If I could find quiet place to study and drink Starbucks during hour break, I would!
