After being confronted by her “psycho” neighbor, a young woman admitted she was concerned for her safety. The 31-year-old woman in question revealed that she was approached by her elderly neighbor down the street while out for a stroll with her newborn baby. She also stated that she had never seen or spoken with the man or his wife before.
Needless to say, the new mother was taken aback when the man stormed out of his house, accusing her of destroying his marriage and accusing her of “trying to flirt with him” by wearing leggings and shorts while passing by his house. “I’ve been taking stroller walks around my neighborhood for the past year since giving birth.” One of my neighbors confronted me today as I approached the end of my street.
“He was standing outside his house and asked if I had a moment to speak,” the woman explained in her open Reddit post. “My neighbor confronted me about straining his marriage, and proceeded to tell me that he and his wife knew what I was doing by walking by their house in ‘inappropriate clothing such as see-through leggings and inappropriate shorts.'”
“[He said] I should immediately stop all attempts because it was frustrating him and his spouse,” the woman added. In shock, I was beside myself and rooted to the spot. “I’ve never exchanged a single word with this man, and I’ve never even seen him!” I didn’t think wearing regular running shorts or leggings was inappropriate. I’m not out to attract attention on these walks because it’s one of the few times I get some peace and exercise.
In summarizing her recollection of the bizarre encounter, the woman admitted she feels “ashamed” and “awkward” after being accused of all those terrible things while doing nothing more than minding her own business. She also admitted that she has changed her walking route to avoid a confrontation with the enraged neighbor. After seeking advice on the internet, the mother was inundated with messages of support from perplexed viewers who couldn’t believe what they’d just read.
I even try to avoid small talk because I’m terrible at it.””Either this guy was caught ogling you, or his wife is envious of your looks, or both.” That is entirely their fault, not yours. “Just keep doing what you’re doing because these jerks don’t own the neighborhood,” someone advised. “This guy and his wife both sound like jerks.” “From what you’ve described, it doesn’t appear that there’s anything wrong with your attire,” another person said.
Others advised the young woman to carry pepper spray as protection in case her “crazy” neighbor tried to harm her. What are your thoughts on the subject?
