New Submission: Intentional space violation & following

A man stopped me for directions and stood far too close for comfort. I stepped back to answer his questions and he kept the conversation going despite my obvious desire to leave it. He moved into my personal space again to gesture at the “closed” sign on the stairs and I had to take another step back and gestured for him to head on his way ahead. He insisted that I go first and followed me until I took a detour into the canal building. When I approached the bus stop I waited for him to board his bus before getting nearer.
