Paranoia

Dude, your Bourne-esque experience about being chased was great. I deliver pizza on the weekends; one night I had a delivery that was pretty high up the mountain. After I got back in my car from the delivery, I was in my car counting my money when another car's headlights came on about 50 feet behind me. I started my car and left, and the other car started following me, down every street I went down, every turn I made, he was still tailing me. I assumed he was out for robbing the pizza guy, and I was getting kinda freaked. I made it to a main road and started going kind of slow; maybe he'd pass me, I thought. He slowed down too; he was definitely after me. I eventually timed it so I could quickly accelerate through a yellow light, but have it turn red before the other car got there. Then I darted down a side street and took a roundabout route back to the pizza place. I felt like I was in a 007 movie chase. Scary, but exhilarating.

That was exactly like my experience. At first you don't think they can possibly be following you, so you give them their chance to prove that they're not following you, then they keep following you, finally you have to devise some means of escape. I was using ancient, ancestral parts of my brain I've never had to use before to get away from the guy chasing me. It is exhilerating, but only in the same way that breaking your toe is exhilerating. "Well," you think, "this is a new kind of agony. Never had that happen before."
