Dear Random Lady,

I understand that you probably thought I was in the 7th or 8th grade (I'm severely vertically challenged), but you really shouldn't assume that someone doesn't know what they're doing when it comes to their pets no matter what their age. You don't need to baby me because my mother isn't with me. Quit trying to check the bettas I'm thinking about purchasing to make sure they're not sick. Don't you dare even recommend that fish bowl to me again because you wouldn't catch any of my animals stuffed in that torture chamber. Look, I'm a Junior in high school. Back off. You're not even an employee. Stop harassing me around the store or I will literately hire security guards to throw you across the planet. I know what I'm doing, I've done my research. You don't know what you're talking about. Please stop acting like it.

I want to say I am glad she babied you. That means she cares and wants to help.

Yeah but when someone clearly says they don't want your help, you don't go and harass them.

I understand and appreciate the concern she showed, but I made it obvious that I knew what I was doing and knew exactly what I came to the store for. After that, I want to be left alone instead of being stalked. She was actually making me feel very uncomfortable. I'm glad that I ran into my riding instructor (I ride horses) and an old teacher of mine (I transferred to a different school). She disappeared after that. A little creepy, don't you think?

I feel, despite a kid's age stalking them in a store is not recommended or justified for any reason - motherly image or not, people need to learn to back off.

I am sometimes nervous to talk to waiters. She might have wanted to make sure you get the right supplies.

Choclate, if I were shopping and already knowing what I needed and had already pointed out I no longer needed their help and they stalked me around the store I would become very irritated. It's rude. If I were a shop owner or working in a store - which I do work in a store- I would ask if they needed any help, maybe point out some awesome sales we got, and then if they LOOKED lost, I may approach once again to see if they need assistance. If not, I leave them be.

Maybe so, but it could've gone without the stalking part. That really started to scare me. I've never been so happy to see a teacher outside school before. I didn't tell my mom about what happened because I didn't want the lady to get in trouble if all she was trying to do was help. I knew my mom would've freaked out or something.
