What I Did When A Drug Dealer Tried To Approach Me.

So I’m walking towards the bus stop during an early afternoon to go home. I just came out of the beauty school were a student messed up my hair, so I was already somewhat irate. A man was walking in the opposite direction then asked me if I wanted to buy a drug. Now, for me I have a problem with addiction. Although I don’t use drugs these creeps are dangerous for me, especially since I am always alone. Not good. I reacted with anger, I told him to get lost. Not real good but I wanted to send a blunt message and that message was “Get the hell out of my face” which was what I said.
So, in the future what I will do is avoid the particular area altogether from now on. For some reason here in the United States & where I live in particular major bus transit centers seem to the drug dealer a ripe place to market their wares.
Well goody for them (sarcastic tone) I’ve got enough problems and these with these creeps here is their M.O.
When your the D.D. customer what they usually do is give you the first drug ‘on them’ meaning the drug is free.
Then your HOOKED! From there these it’s a high probability that you’ll most certainly graduate to more harder drugs. Not ‘if’ but ‘when’. What really irritated me most about the creepy little drug dealer is he blatantly approached; young kids, women, older people hell he didn’t care.
And guess what fellow readers I’m sure that I don’t need to tell you that the creepy drug dealer guy really DOESN’T CARE! He just wants to make money off of you. Which was why I didn’t care to be too cordial with him.
However I should have ignored him. It’s dangerous here …well everywhere people.
Drugs are destroying communities, families, marriages, lives. I’ve watched documentaries about the effects of how drugs devastate lives. Of all the damage drugs can do the first thing it does is that drugs destroy your looks! Especially the drug called ‘Meth’ that shit is HORRIBLE.
By the grace of God I’ve never tried it, and I never will.
Back in the 80’s I had this friend he was a wild one. Johnny was just a platonic friend, b/c this boy was WILD! We hung out, he was a fabulous cook! I was not.
Anyway Johnny tries to get me to try this drug that at the time I had never heard of.
That drug was crystal meth.
Johnny was enthusiastically promoting crystal as the next best thing to espresso.
“This drug you can F**k all night (Eeeew)
“You don’t need to sleep” (I personally like to sleep)
And well since Johnny like to party like the song Prince would say “like 1999” He thought it was the greatest.
I declined, saying that I already suffer from an anxiety disorder, I needed to actually RELAX, and I enjoyed going to bed and actually SLEEP! one of the few pleasures of my life.
I thank God in Heaven that I was smart enough to decline, because I firmly believe that I would have began to dig a hole that I might not have ever gotten out of.
Don’t know what happened to Johnny. He wanted to get into show business so he took me out to a fabulous dinner that was expensive, then he packed up heading to Las Vegas.
I never saw him again.
So, I guess the moral to this story if there is one is just tell those low life drug dealers to keep stepping preferably away from you.
And if your feeling uncomfortable JUST DON’T GO DOWN THAT ROAD of trying that drug!
Drink some tea.
Take a nap.
Go smoke a cigarette.
Drugs just destroy you!
And I have zero tolerance for people who deal them.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down.
