So. This morning I was driving to school and I hadn't eaten breakfast yet. I woke up late and had to run out the door without eating anything. Lucky for me, I save my change - change I can believe in - and had around $2.50 which I could buy breakfast with. I am fond of the sausage burritos at the McDonalds which is conveniently on the way to school, so I considered going there... except for the fact that I had already gone last Friday and I recognized the lady working there after seeing her a few times. I don't know if she recognized me, since she had to glance at people all day and probably didn't care, but I really didn't like the fact that I recognized her. I wake up late often, but seldom go out to eat for breakfast unless I'm really hungry. Except for sometimes the Chemistry teacher sells muffins to raise money and they're really good and cheap. So, instead, I just didn't eat breakfast for fear of being recognized. I don't like being a "regular" at a restaurant, and I don't like people being able to predict my tastes unless I know them personally. I get really embarrassed when I walk into the chemistry lab (I haven't had the teacher's class yet) and he notices me and says, "We're busy today so we're not selling muffins". It's not a phobia, but it's definitely a deterrent. How many people experience similar feelings? Do you avoid places because the owner knows you but you don't know them? etc. etc. usw.
