Welcome to The Firing Line!
I worked as an armored car messenger/driver/guard for long enough to get to the point I hate crowds!
I like people watching & enjoy eyecandy, but DO NOT like being in a mass of people.
So, don't feel paranoid, just determine if you are paranoid enough!
Non clinical paranoia is the sum of your experience trying to tell you something ain't right!
Watch over your wife and child and do your best to train them to watch out for themselves.
