Sam and I were sitting at a stop light this afternoon. As I often do, I turned around to talk to him while we were waiting. I noticed he was pointing and looking out the window to my left. He had a huge grin on his face. I figured he was just pointing at some trucks. (For some reason...oh who am I kidding? Because he is Bob's son, he really likes to point out trucks).
Anyway, I turn around and there is an older gentleman (in a truck) smiling and waving at Sam. Now normally, I would deem that fellow creepy, try to distract Sam and anxiously wait for the light to turn. Not this time though because this old guy seemed normal enough and slightly embarrassed that I caught him playing with my kid.
So here's my question. What is it that gives somebody that creepy fact (C Factor)? I've been creeped out by normal enough looking people in normal enough looking vehicles and vice versa. Is it length of eye contact? Whether they look like they've had a shower recently? The state of their vehicle? What? I can't seem to boil it down to just one thing. Although, I can tell you this. If you are pulled up far enough to have to turn around to see me or my kid AND you've been looking for more than about 2 seconds, you.are.creeping.me.out.
