Hi everyone - I was wondering if my recent, slightly odd experience [see following story] was common in our PD community ...
About 3 weeks ago, I parked outside my local train station [Orpington] one rainy morning and displayed my recently received Blue Badge in my front windscreen, as required, as this was a disabled parking space. As I left my car, I was conscious of somebody staring at me full-on [normally the other way around with my PD!] and when I looked over at the person, I noticed a smartly dressed, professional-looking, lady in a banking type 'uniform' with her gaze firmly fixed upon me. I thought that she might be looking at somebody behind me, so I looked around, but I was alone. I tried to ignore her stare, but had to walk up and past her to get into the station main entrance, so no avoiding passing close by to her.
As I walked up slowly, she seemed to make her stare even more pronounced towards me; but I carried on walking. When I had passed her and gone inside the station ticket office, I glanced back and, to my amazement, noticed that she had now walked all the way over to my car [at least 50 m and in the rain] and was actively checking my Blue Badge: all very bizarre indeed!! I am sure she did not work at the station, nor was a parking attendant, so I still do not know why she acted in this strange way.
Have you have encountered this type of weird behaviour? Any ideas here most welcome.
