Stay Safe?????????????

Walking the lake, nearing the end of it, I see a 20-something year old AA guy in a bright yellow hoodie. He is staring right at me, so I keep looking at my phone. As I walk past him, he goes, "Hi sweetie."

I ignore it and keep walking.

Then he adds, "Have a nice day.Be safe."

Now call me a prude, but when a creepy man calls me sweetie then tells me to be safe, I get very uncomfortable. Does that sound like a threat to anyone besides me? Be safe... because if you respond negatively to me, I'll sweeten up your ass in these bushes.

Ugh. Why are men this way.
