Next you'll be telling me schoolkids these days have "proms" :x

Witty biological-political hybrid jokes are the reason this place fails to cater to a wide audience

People that want to talk gooseberry fool to you in shops.

I went to the supermarket with my 3 year old yesterday and put him in the trolley when we got to the check out. The very odd looking bloke behind me then started talking:

Weird bloke “I used to love sitting in the trolley”
Me “Yeah?”
Weird bloke “It’s good to see them doing things like that rather than texting!”
Me “Texting?”
Weird bloke “Yeah, I saw some teenagers the other day sat next to each other texting each other!”
Me “……”
Weird bloke “So how old is he?”
Me “Three”
Weird bloke “Oh probably not texting yet then?”
Me “no”
Weird bloke “Yeah they just don’t know how to have fun nowadays do they? Just got their heads in gadgets all the time”

Luckily at that point my son tried grabbing the shopping of the lady in front which gave me the perfect excuse to tell him off rather than put up with the weird and creepy strawberry floater behind. He wasn’t even very old, probably mid-30s. I don’t blame teenagers for pretending to look at their phones when that nob is annoying them.

[era]The guy was probably just chronically shy and that conversation will have taken him months of practice and buildup, just so he could feel normal and be a regular person like everyone else that he sees when he walks through town on his own with no friends, he probably shared his idea with his online friends on his favourite anime forum to see how he could approach someone that he thought looked cool that could maybe he could strike up a non-threatening conversation with, and you just pissed all over it.[/era]

YIKES Y'ALL THAT'S... THAT'S A HOT TAKE RIGHT THERE, LIKE WOW

Had a similar-ish encounter to Moggy yesterday, a bit weird. There's a, well, probably homeless fella who hangs out on a street on my walk home, he's tried to catch my attention before (and I've seen him doing the same with other people) but I've kind of mumbled "sorry" and walked on.

Anyway, this time he quite loudly said...
"Oh hey, do you recognise me?"
(Bear in mind it's obvious where I work from my lanyard, and he didn't call me by name, so he doesn't actually know me.)
"Uh, no."
"Oh, I used to work at the Uni."
"I see."
(He grabs and shakes my hand.)
"Yeah, I'm not doing so well these days though. My wife died of leukaemia. Oh, how are you doing, you handsome boy. Handsome boy! Hey, where you going?"
(I've obviously pointedly started walking off at this point but I say back to him...)
"I'm going home."
"Hey, can I walk with you?"
"No... no thanks, mate."
He actually looked genuinely a bit hurt. :(

I feel pretty bad I was maybe a bit rude, but I just don't really function well in that situation. Obviously he was very weird, and probably living in a kind of make-believe world, but I don't think he was dangerous (he literally just stands on that street trying to talk to people), I think he probably must have some kind of schizophrenia? It's kind of been bugging me all day since.

Actually, he was most likely a con artist. His next gambit would have been about him needing money to pay for a hostel until his emergency payment comes through. He would then ask for your phone number so he could arrange to pay it back.

I was approached with a very similar spiel when I was last in London.

That actually makes sense, I can see he could have pushed the conversation that way if I'd been less wary and creeped-out. Bit unsettling!

Ah well, at least a homeless guy thinks you are a handsome boy.

Well that part didn't phase me because it was just like reading a PM from Hexx.

I had a similar incident today. But I think the woman was just lonely or mentally ill.. She just kept repeating the fact that her son drives one of the buses and that someone had told her that she was paying the wrong amount for her ticket. "But my son told me how much I need to pay, he drives the buses!" It was probably the longest 5 minutes I've had at a bus stop.

I once got touted by a homeless person/traveller/chancer on Westminster Bridge while I was killing time before a job interview. The (middle-aged) woman said she was selling flowers "for the hospital" and proceeded to try and pin the most haggard flower I'd ever seen on my suit's buttonhole. I politely declined, but then she shouted "WELL LET ME GIVE YOU A KISS THEN!", grabbed me by the face like your auntie or nan would, and planted a sloppy, wet kiss right on my cheek. I felt her lip on the bottom of my ear. I couldn't even tell her to strawberry float off, because knowing my luck my interview panel would be right behind me.

I had a guy try to recruit me into a pyramid scheme and or cult last month. I also met him at the grocery store, I was looking at some drink and as he was walking by he asked me if they were any good, I thought noting of it then, but now that I look back on it I'm pretty sure it was a rehearsed opening line.

We got chatting and he mentioned he was in IT (then he clarified that he's selling office supplies, so uhh I guess that counts?) and asked me what I was doing myself blah blah. We ended up exchanging phone numbers as I don't really know anyone in this town so thought he was just friendly and it might be nice to know someone.

Then a bit later we schedule a meet up at some cafe so I go and then the sales pitch starts. Telling me about how he's involved in a mentorship program, and they're pretty selective and if I would be interested in hearing more. I was already there so I said sure, always nice to know other people. He starts going on about how they can advise you in not just business, but also in life, how to have a good family, happy marriage, and (and these are his actual words) "even spiritually if I'm interested in that" :dread:

This then devolved from mentorship to a talk about working for others, and how much better it would be to be self employed, and while difficult you could eventually "buy your time back". WTF kind of retarded gooseberry fool is that? I really wanted to tell him that's a horrible spiel but didn't want to give him any advice.

I told him I have my own specialized skills so if I started a small business it would be using those rather than selling a product and getting into "multi-level marketing" as he called it (this is the new way to say pyramid scheme). Then he told me I would be working like crazy forever, and an employee would never care about my business as much as me, which went completely against what he said at first about buying my time back. WTF?!

At least he didn't push too hard once I told him I wasn't interested. After that he basically made small talk for like 3 minutes and then we both left.

A drunk dude tried to talk to me on the bus recently and I ended up just ignoring him. I have to speak to the general public in my job and I don't want to outside it. They annoy the living hell out of me.

In my late teens, i used to have to spend hours in a place called Axminster (not helped by the infrequent bus services), and i regularly found myself being approached by all sorts of bizarre characters.

One elderly chap would keep asking me if i liked Katie Price, another tried to lure me to a 'music store' which i knew did not exist, and another would just openly scream insults at me.

An utterly freaky hellhole of a place that was, god knows why that TV chef set up his 'river cottage' restaurant there.
