>Riding the escalator at the mall.
>Leaning over to look at the Christmas decorations.
>Turn back and there is a dude in the same step as me, leaning over my shoulder.
>He says “hey”, I say it back.
>”You’re not a homosexual, are you?” He asks. I say “no.”
>”Good. Fuck those guys, am I right? Where are you going?”
>Say “nowhere” and move off once we reach the floor.
>He starts following me.
>”You’re going somewhere, nobody comes here for no reason. Where are you going?”
>”Nowhere, man, I’m just hanging out.”
>Yells “DON’T LIE TO ME” and grabs my arm.
>”Ok, I’m going to work” and enter the first store I see – a clothing store.
>”Are you sure you’re not homosexual?”
>Ignore him, go in, kill some time in the back of the store.
>Peek over at the front, he’s still there, waiting for me.
>Talk to an actual employee, he let’s me sneak out in the back and call security.
>The dude senses something is wrong and vanishes.
>Decide to leave, but as I reach the door a voice fills the air.
>”COME BACK HERE, homosexual”
>It’s the dude, sprinting towards me while holding a metal trash bin.
>Bolt out of there straight into a bus.
>The dude chases after the bus, but can’t keep up, so he throws the metal can at it.
>Last thing I see before the bus turns the corner is mall security tackling the guy.
From what I’ve later heard, he was high on drugs and got arrested for causing a disturbance.
