I have personal space issues. I know I have them. But...is that a bad thing?
Today at Costco, a lady accidentally ran her basket into me. She said sorry, I said ok, I thought we were done. Then, she started rubbing my arm and apologizing more. After a few seconds I asked her to please stop touching me. What would make this woman think she had the right to start rubbing my arm?
Tonight at class, a man touched my shoulder when it was my turn to read. I don't think it would have bothered me had that woman not rubbed my arm earlier today. And in class, there is a sense of familiarity with the people...
I'm just not sure why people (especially complete strangers) think they have a right to touch you.
