Strange People Sightings

There are some VERY strange people in the world….

This week, I was at an event at a movie theater that was being held in conjunction with the Twilight movie. Yes, I have read the books, but no, I’m not a HUGE fan like everyone else I know. But, that’s not what this post is about.

My job sometimes presents opportunities for me to meet people “I would never ever get in contact with” normally…and yesterday proved that to be true. There were several very interesting people like this at the event, but there were two highlights. My coworker and I had forgotten about it in the evening, but then I told him I HAD to do a post about it.

1. Iraq/Iran man. This was a gentleman that looked like he could be 20 years old, but told us he was 39. He had also recently retired from the navy. He also told us this amazing skit that he had in his head for SNL someday, that included locking people up and other weird things that I seem to have blocked from my mind at the moment, but it was disturbing. Plus, the thing I remember most about him is that he was one of those people that just keep talking and talking and don’t really realize that maybe people don’t really care/want/need to hear what you have to say. These people just like to hear themselves talk….but they aren’t funny/they are weird/creepy. It's like they throw up words to anyone who will listen and don't have tact (for lack of better word) to know when to stop....and they say WEIRD things! Anyways, I’m sure he is a very nice person, but just strange.

2. More disturbingly, gentleman number two. Gun manbag man. As my coworker and I were sitting at a table, a gentleman came in through the outside doors across the way with a lady friend, and came over to the events host we were with and asked him if he worked here. So, the events host went over and talked to him across the way, but here was basically the conversation.
“I just noticed that sign that says no weapons allowed. I have a weapon.”
Events host says something that we couldn’t hear.
As gun manbag man and lady friend were walking away, my coworker said he heard gun manbag man say he had a concealed weapons permit….etc….yeah, right I thought.
A few minutes later we saw gunmanbag man walking out the door with the manbag (that now we knew had A GUN PROBABLY! In it) and came bag in without the man bag.

Anyways, how weird you say? Weird…. I know no one probably cares about this story, but still strange. Another strange thing is manbags, but that may be for another post.
