Subject: I got followed by a drone today

Written By: LooseBolt on 01/02/18 at 4:40 pm

I'm not sure if this is against the rules, so I apologize in advance if it is. I was walking through a park on my way to the library in our town. All of a sudden I hear this buzzing noise like a low-flying plane. Looking up, I see a drone! I'm not sure whether it had a camera on it or not, but as soon as I spotted it, it immediately took a higher altitude and buzzed away. Needless to say, I'm feeling rather paranoid.

People need to learn where to fly those things! One time I was driving past some cornfields and see this drone flying low enough I thought I'd hit it! Dumb people.

In some areas of London drones are banned, so luckily for me, I do not see much of them.

I'm sorry you had that happen to you, LooseBolt. I'm wondering if there is any one you can report that to-the police? City Hall? There maybe laws against that and if not, maybe you can petition your city to make a law against it.



LMAO



Why would you even think that is funny? How would you like it if a drone followed you? You have no idea who is behind the drone or why they were following you.

What?


Apparently, he thinks that it's funny that you got followed by a drone but I don't think it is.  You're right to be paranoid.

A sign of the times. :o

If it buzzed away I doubt it was following you though. Drone photography is becoming a popular hobby nowadays.

That's... bizarre.
But you were in a public area, so maybe it wasn't really following you?

All of you need to lighten up.
Not every creepy occurrence is a national calamity in the making, so people have the right to poke fun at serious situations. It's called levity. Without it, we'd all be a miserable bunch.
Save your outrage for 9/11 jokes.

And sorry, Loosebolt, probably was a frightening encounter for you. Like Howard said, a shotgun would have done the trick.

It's just as bad when you're in the city attending a park or a mall and you see a drone flying in the sky.
