    Couple hours ago a young man rang at the door.

    He said he came to his relatives who are our neighbours, but they had left home and he didn't have keys. So he asked if he could charge his cellphone because his adapter had broken. I don't know why, but my mother opened the door. He said he would come back a bit later, and I...

    I am usually a sarcastic person,

    but my paranoia is leaking into that as well. I used to be sarcastic with everyone, even with people I had just met. But now, I'm paranoid they will take my words too seriously like my mother, and so I become very quiet and reserved, making them think I'm cold or uninterested.
