We were out and about today in a not so familiar shopping area. Walking back towards the lifts to the car park there was an Asian man (in his 50s I'd guess) who had just reached the lifts ahead of us and was looking at his phone.
My DS2 is very chatty to everyone we meet while out, so while he ran to push the button to call the lift, he said hello to the man. I laughed a little but when I looked at the man, by the angle of his phone, it looked like he had just taken a picture of my DS. I couldn't be certain though. He was holding his phone in a strange way when we got there.
Then his phone beeped and he continued what ever he was doing.
It all happened in a split second and I really can't be sure.
I mention his race because this isn't the first time this has happened and I'm wondering if it's a cultural thing?
As we were between flights in Abu Dhabi one time, an Asian woman took a photo of the boys. We had exchanged a few pleasantries and next thing she whips out her phone and took a snap.
I felt weird about it but thought ah, she's a harmless old woman, leave her be.
But today, gah...I wish I was certain otherwise it's a case of me harassing a perfectly innocent old man.
CREEPED OUT all the same.
What would you do?
Would you confront the person and ask to see their phone?
I should be more aggressive I think.
