I work at Fresh 102.7 in NYC, and one of my shifts is an early shift on Saturdays. Walking to work this morning, a guy starts to follow me… I walk a bit faster, and he yells out to me, “I’m just shadowing you, cause someone just got robbed around here, hope you don’t mind, my name is Joe”, he holds his hand out, I shake it, say ‘thank you’ and he took me all the way to work. So…I wanted to ‘thank him’ in front of all of you, and say that sometimes we have to trust our gut instincts and trust a stranger like Joe. Here I am, safe and sound, at work, thanks to Joe.
When I mentioned this to my girlfriend, she said I should carry pepperspray. I told her, “You know me! I don’t need pepper spray. I just need to LOOK at the person with that LOOK.” Trust me. You’ll know the look when you see it.
