(from the Art of Manliness)
You arrive at your favorite coffee shop in the ‘burbs and notice a guy in a green baseball cap standing behind you. You give him a friendly nod and go back to looking at the menu.
While you’re taking a bite from your Arby’s roast beef sandwich during your lunch break downtown, you notice that same guy in the green ball cap at a table outside. “Huh. Small world. What a coincidence,” you think to yourself.
Work is over, and you roll up to the gym to get your sweat on. While you’re walking to the entrance, you glance over and see Mr. Green Baseball Hat sitting in a car in the parking lot.
You get the sinking feeling that this third spotting isn’t a coincidence and that maybe this guy is following you.
I for one, when working as a private investigator, thought I was being followed only once. I was fairly close to home. so I lead the possible surveillant away, came to a same place, and called home to make certain my wife and infant daughter were ok, and the home secured.
Once I was assured I was no longer being followed, I took a different route home, scouting for the guy’s car. I never saw him again, nor the car with the same license.
Of course, if it had been a team, I was toast!
Regardless, the article has some good, basic advice…
