As you all know, I walk my dog daily. I tend to vary my routes to keep from being bored. One of my routes takes me by Hillcrest Baptist Church, Ensley, Florida. I usually cut through their back parking lot (paved area) to avoid the high traffic on the side road and major road along the front. It is just safer.
I also have my dog on a short leash and I carry “deposit” bags and clean up after her…always.
Today, I encountered an older woman exiting her car. When she noticed me, she glared at me…not just stare, but glared as if I was a 3 headed demon.
I waved and smiled. She did not reciprocate. She glared a bit longer then turned and headed for the church.
I posted this encounter on FB and stated that this would put me off of ever visiting this church. I also stated that if the church preferred that I didn’t cut through their parking lot, to please let me know. So we shall see if I get a response.
Anyway, just a “hmmmmmmmm……” moment. What would you do?
