When the Crack Heads Come Out to Play: Danger Lurking in My Neighborhood

Part Two
A continuation from Part One

A couple days after that incident, I saw the guy again at the Subway in my neighborhood which is about three miles away from Downtown. Part of me had difficulty fathoming how he managed to get all the way to my neck of the woods, but to be honest, three miles is not a long journey to trek especially when you live in such an urban city.

Anyway, I didn't realize he was there until I heard a woman's voice yell,
"You've been sitting there staring at me this whole time. Stop fucking staring at me or I'll call the fucking police."

I look over and there was that guy again in the same olive green t-shirt and filthy pajama pants. His face was unmistakable. Sandy brown hair, unkempt mustache, and large, transfixed blue eyes. There was not denying the fact that he was staring this woman down, and just watching the situation made me uncomfortable. Part of me wondered if he was going to recognize me, but then I decided to not waste my sanity trying to decipher the mind of a mad man.

He said to the woman,
"You work for the state hospital. Why did you let your brother molest that nine-year-old?"

The woman's reaction was a combination of being infuriated and downright flabbergasted. She tried to get the manager, a middle-aged, frail-looking Korean lady, to kick him out. Of course the manager was not going to know how to handle the situation. So she tried to give him some cookies so that he would leave. When the manager's cookie plan didn't work, I was utterly shocked.

It seemed fool proof to me. I mean, when he was trying to mug me in Downtown, the one thought that ran through my mind was, "Damnit, I forgot to bring my cookies so I could ward off this crackhead! Gotta remember for next time."

I was getting annoyed above all else of the situation in Subway. So, I paid for my food and left. As was leaving, I noticed that the scumbag had shifted his attention and was now staring at me. Apparently he recognized me from the incident in Downtown.

I knew it was only a matter of time before I was going to see him again.

Now he not only knows where I work; he also knows where I live.

  1. Wow, how weird.

    I'm a little afraid of what Part Three might be, but I look forward to reading it.

    Sounds like you're going to have to start carrying cookies in your purse, just in case!

  2. Even though 3 miles isn't very far for our area, with all the crazies in Honolulu I think it's super creepy that he ended up in your neck of the woods!!

    Shucks, I should've carried cookies with me while working downtown- everyone knows that if you're off your meds cookies are a fantastic substitute!

    1. Hahaha Cookies are the general solution/substitute to all things bad or crazy.

      Three miles really is NOTHING compared to the longer commutes I had while living on the mainland. On a smaller scale, however, three miles is quite the journey. Oh well, miles mean nothing in the land of Crack. :)

  5. Oh wow. I can't believe you saw him again after part one. I'm happy to hear you were not harmed although I realize the situation is still not a good one. Please do be careful and be aware of your surroundings. Are you allowed to carry pepper spray? Also, I admire your bravery for charging at him the first time. I wouldn't know what to do in that situation. I hope there isn't a part three. Please be safe.
