What do you think about this suspicious person

A year ago my mountain bike broke at a park I had road to 10 miles from my house. I asked to borrow a cellphone from the first person I saw, he was hesitant and asked my first, last name, address, the number I wanted to call and he dialed it and asked me the name of the person who would answer then finally handed it to me when it was the message machine

He was just very careful, maybe he had a bad experience before.

That's a little paranoid, but maybe he was just trying to make sure that you weren't the creeper...still...bizarre :P

I would probably think you were suspicious or trying to rob me based on the fact your bike is broken and you do not have a cellphone...Like what kind of person doesnt have a cellphone these days?

A year ago ... has he contacted you, since?
If not - there's nothing suspicious about his request. If somebody I didn't know approached me and asked to use my cellphone, I'd want some information first as well.

you guys have no imagination; what if he was a like spy, or drug dealer, or something and had secret contacts on his phone and a gun right in his pocket... I've borrowed over 30 sell phones and no one has ever being like that

You sure borrow a lot of cell phones ... makes YOU sound more and more like a suspicious character. Maybe you're "data mining" the phones.

I would have used my own cell phone or asked someone else. This guy sounds creepy paranoid. I tend to distrust the paranoid. I think their paranoia comes from them imagining what they would do if they were you, and the conclusions they draw indicate their frame of mind. As JRR Tolkien once wrote, The treacherous are ever distrustful."
