I had a very odd thing happen about a month ago here in Tucson roughly around 8/15/15 or so. I was on my way home from work and stopped to fill my gas tank at the Q-mart on the southwest corner of Pantano Road and 22nd across from D&D Materials. I was right on the end of the gas pumps, and the traffic was pretty quiet. I had worked late, and it was just before sundown. If you know the area, you know that D&D has a lot of room with no cover in front of it to allow for trucks. I had just begun pumping gas when I heard a scream almost a howl. I looked up, and there was a young man in (I think) his late teens standing across the street next to the sidewalk.
He was very thin pale and had messy dark hair. He wore black pants and a red shirt. It looked kind of uniform, sort of what you'd see on a waiter or busboy. He was standing next to what looked like a bicycle that was on the ground beside the sidewalk, and it looked damaged. I remember seeing one wheel kind of sticking up. The young man kept running his hands over his face and hair, and he would scream every few seconds, not a word or anything just this cry with nothing holding it back. I didn't know what was going on, but I work for a place that handles mental health patients and wondered if he was autistic and having a meltdown. I've seen that before, and his screams reminded me strongly of this.
I was still pumping gas, but my phone was in the car. As soon as I finished I planned to call 911 and report that someone was in distress there and might need a transport to a crisis center. The young man sat down beside the bike wrapped his arms around himself and screamed again before falling silent. He sat like that on the curb for a minute or two before standing up again bending down and reaching for his bike. At that point a car drove past blocking him and catching my attention. I looked back no more than a second or so later, and he was gone. Just gone bike and all.
Please understand that there is no cover there. He was beside the curb, and there are no bushes or trees. Nothing. A couple of small posts. That's it. Nobody was parked there; nobody pulled in. Nothing. The whole time nobody else paid a bit of attention to this, and he was loud, and he was just not there. I hadn't even thought of him possibly being a ghost until that moment. It hadn't crossed my mind. It was as if taking my attention off him for that very brief moment had taken him out of my seeable perceivable world. It shook me.
I've driven by there a number of times but have seen nothing since. The time this took by the way was roughly how long it takes to fill a 13-gallon (I think) gas-tank with a rather slow gas-pump. I had rolled into the Q-mart on fumes, so it was a full tank. It could have been eight minutes or maybe less. I'm not sure. The tank shut off, and I was pulling out the nozzle just as the car drove past. If anybody has any info about this, I'd love to know it. I feel very sorry for that poor guy. He was in utter misery.
