Inner city living comes with a variety of positives and negatives. You have to accept the negatives like a certain level of noise, etc, but there are lines to draw. One of those lines is the weird bloke staring at your window as shown in the second clip in the video below.
I’ve had this happen a few times. Most of the times I wrote it off as someone casing out the place and they’re normally gone when you turn the lights on or open the window. Sometimes though they don’t. Sometimes they carry on staring at your window at 3am and don’t get put off by anything.
Once this happened in a flat I lived in when I was still in Bristol. Started at a weekend and carried on over a few weeks to the point the police were called and it was freaking out some of the other people in the flats. Latest was just yesterday when someone was staring at the flat window from the car park out back that caused me to call the police only to be told they couldn’t send anyone round as nobody is doing anything wrong. True, but hiding behind cars in the dark staring at windows doesn’t strike me as a wee bit suspicious if you ask me.
Anyhow, all this urban weirdness has got my mind bubbling and I’ll be going more into it in future blogs.
