I took my son to play at the playland and eat some nuggets. There was a woman and her daughter, a grandpa with his grandson, and myself and my boy. Then off to the side was an older dude with no kids there. Just sitting there drinking a soda and watching the kids play. Creeped me out a bit.

Rap him in the head, and ask him if he is a pedo...

Trust your gut. He was a pedophile. I generally make it a point to contact such people and make them feel uncomfortable. I start with "where is your kid?", when they say they don't have one, I ask them why they are staring at other people's kids. They usually leave.

I watch the kids play sometimes. Kids are great, and my only Granddaughter passed away very young. I catch myself thinking, (and wishing), that she would be like one of those kids.

If none of the above, why so creeped out?


When an older dude with no kids is hanging around kids. Your Spidey senses go up.

I'd probably tell you to go have nasty sex with yourself and watch you pee on yourself. You sound a bit psychotic.

...and why wouldn't they, when there's some churlish dude threatening them?

That approach only works until it doesn't...and when it doesn't, you've bought yourself a great big bag of problem.

If you're curious about someone's intentions when they've done nothing inappropriate, there are much lower key methods of finding out about their intentions that don't require acting like a dipstick.


This.

Some people that are sitting by themselves watchign kids play in a mcdonalds might just be thinking something like -

I miss my son / daughter
wish my kid who is now grown was still here
wish I was still a kid
Life sucks
ah to be a kid again.

Maybe he doesnt need some pushy idiot coming up to them making them fell unconfortable.

You did that to me the response would probably be to fuck off and mind your own business. Some of us humans arent social and dont like to be challenged for doing nothing.

Casual non threatening conversation on the other hand....

That phrase is non threatening in the least...unless the person has bad intentions. If they do, you've just communicated "Hey, fucker, I see you and I ain't skeered."

There's a right way and a wrong way to do things.

The "nice weather!" approach is the wrong way once you see someone laying hands on children. Then you break out the "Hi, I'm Bob, and I'll be beating the shit out of you today." routine.


Completely right. Approach the guy and start friendly conversation - this way, you'll be able to see what he's really focused on.

It's thoughts like this are why men in modern America are automatically assumed to be pedophiles if they're anywhere near children by themselves. In some cases men have been accused of being pedophiles while carting their own children around in public while the wife isn't with them, or if there is no wife.

was it this guy?

COOK COUNTY, Ill. (CBS) – A 36-year-old convicted sexual predator was arrested after loitering in the children’s play area of a McDonald’s restaurant in Elk Grove Township, the Cook County Sheriff’s Department said.

Joseph O’Brien, 36, was charged with a Class 3 felony of failing to update his address to police and with criminal trespassing on Dec. 22 after the manager of a McDonald’s on East Higgins Road called authorities to report an adult loitering, the sheriff’s office said

Blade at 45 degrees, alpha-wolf stare, full-power-shot, etc.


What no "you will not touch my children" yell. Best police interrogators/interviewers I ever saw always made their target/witness completely at ease.

For years we had a crusty old POS registered sexual offender (Victim was a 13 YO girl) that would sit daily at the bus stop by the Elementary/ Secondary school when classes ended. I gave him shit relentlessly. I haven't seen his decrepit ass this year. Hope He's enjoying his new "Digs".

I remember a guy posted on this board that he was confronted by people because he was alone with this children. Turns out his wife had passed away.

You never know a person's situation. I personally would not have been bothered by the guy at McDonalds unless he tried touching or talking to my child.

Well, people do get considerably less chatty once you've broken their arm and are screaming in their face about how you're going to buttfuck their soul.

EDIT - if it were me getting engaged by someone asking where my kid was, I'd probably start talking about Mayor McCheese.

"When America was America, our kids played on Mayor McCheese at these playgrounds. It was tight and cramped inside that cheeseburger head, but dammit kids learned their limitations. They got stuck and had to figure a way out in a panic and that made them strong and intelligent and let us compete in the global marketplace. Now? Now everything is soft and pastel-colored plastic and nobody learns anything anymore. But I remember. I will not forget you, Mayor Mc.Cheese...I will sit in the playground and toast to your honor and the generation of intelligent, resourceful individuals you helped to breed with your all beef patty and sesame seed face."


You owe me I just spit at least a fingers worth of cognac on my ipad, and no, not little Oompa Loompa midget fingers, but Andre the Giant finger sized.

Some poor dude who is divorced, pays alimony, and only gets to see his kids the day after holidays went to McDonald's to eat off the dollar menu. He then sees children playing and begins to reflect upon his life and the choices that led him to his current situation; and then some badass arfkommer calls him a pedophile. Life is so beautiful.

I work alone. I often grab some lunch alone. Sometimes I am sitting in McD's eating... alone.
I sometimes look out the window while eating and watch whatever is going on. Sometimes its kids playing, other times its a squirrel, other times nothing at all.
Sometimes when I do this it makes me think of people I've lost in my life. Watching kids play or a squirrel doing what it is squirrels do, makes me smile.
I finish my lunch and go about my business.
