“Waiting For The Train After Work And Being Followed On & 0ff The Train”
It was a bright sunny day in the late 1970’s on my way home from work in Manhattan heading to the subway station. I waited for the # 2 train at the Fulton Street Station.
I noticed a guy staring at me…looking very strange, now there is nothing wrong with another guy staring at me, because that’s something I couldn’t avoid. But this particular guy had a certain look about him that made me very uncomfortable.
I wore sunglasses to avoid his stare and not to look nervous.
The train finally came, anxious to take it hoping that the guy didn’t get on it.
I kept praying. “God please let me get to my destination safe.
I really don’t like the way this guy is staring at me.
He is acting very strange.”
There was about 10-12 passengers waiting for the train that evening.
As I entered the train sat at the corner where two people can sit, the guy stood at the door staring, even though I had my sunglasses on trying to avoid him, knowing that he looked like a
loony, I started to read my new testament book.
The train stopped so I got off the train to enter three cars away from the car I was in. Didn’t know what happened. The train stopped at another station for about 10 minutes before it moved.
As I looked up the guy entered the same car, sat opposite me staring.
OK! Now my heart was beating so FAST! Scared as hell!
Wishing for him to get off the train.
That’s when I convinced myself that he was really following me. I didn’t know what to do. I kept wondering if I should get off the train, but my instincts told me to stay on the train because it
would be worse if I got off.
Now! Here comes my stop to Franklyn Avenue in Brooklyn. I got off the train walked so fast to get away from the guy I tried not to look back so he wouldn’t think I was scared. So I entered a store where I usually purchase from and told the owner I was being followed. Described the clothing the guy wore, the owner of the store went out to look for the guy, but he didn’t see the guy.
I tried calling my husband to meet me, but no one answered the phone.
I felt a little better, so I left the store headed to my home. I didn’t see the guy anymore, felt a sense of relief.
As I arrived in front of my home I was astonished, he entered the same building coming towards the elevator. Now I know this guy didn’t live in the building. Everyone knew each other in this building. I tried to act brave but I was scared as hell! I told him what the F! Are you following me for?
With God on my side my husband got off the elevator. He had a small broken porcelain lamp in his hand to dump.
I was happy to see my husband.
I told him the guy followed me from work. My husband approached the guy cursing with the broken porcelain lamp in his hand. Well you know what went down! The guy got scared and said he wasn’t following me and ran. Which was a big lie, he was too OBVIOUS!
The next day I was a nervous wreck, couldn’t go to work, hoping that the guy didn’t show up again to bother me, so I called in sick, I became a nervous wreck from that experience. It took me a while to get over the incident.
My husband had to meet me after work until I got over the fear.
I’m telling you this story and I’m getting flash backs from the incident. I still remember the guy face.
After that experience I took Karate classes to learn to protect myself.
The lesson I learned from this incident is to be on your guard wherever you go, to be aware of your surroundings and people on the train, bus and streets. There are too many crazy people on the train and bus. You have to be able to identify the difference of when someone is looking at you because they admire with innocent thoughts or evil thoughts in their mind.
I have to say God was there for me and he sent my husband just on time to protect me.
Always have faith in the LORD!
We All Have to Stay Alert Whenever We Travel On The Train.
Another tip! Do not fall asleep on the train. You may miss your stop, this happened to me before and it wasn’t a pleasant feeling. Why? Because I ended up at a deserted stop, in the winter which was a bit dark and scary. So take my advise and stay awake be alert always, especially when traveling on The Train in Brooklyn, NY and New York City.
