Why do I always get the Wierdos???

Here are a couple of stories to let Katie know that she isn't the only one who gets wierdos at Wal-Mart...

The other day I was walking around Wal-Mart with just Trevor in the cart. A man dressed in just a grubby sweatshirt and jeans with a baseball cap on stopped me and asked me if he could ask me a question. I said "Sure". He said: "I hope you don't think this is wierd or anything but I saw you and I just thought you were so beautiful and I was wondering if you would let me take you out sometime." ...What the HEAK?! This might have been flattering if it weren't for the fact that I had Trevor in the cart and my wedding ring was clearly in view since I had my hands on the cart. Do I look like the type of person that would do something like that?! I was actually pretty offended. I said "Sorry, I'm happily married", held up my ring finger and walked away...what a sleeze!

Another story...

A couple weeks ago an older man randomly stopped me in Wal-Mart and said "Hey, do your kids eat a lot of cereal?" I said "Not really." He leans in closer as if to tell me his fasinating conspiracy theory and then says in a hushed voice: "Well, you better stock up because the prices are gonna jump sky high because of the flooding in Iowa and the wheat shortage!" I said "Oh...thanks." and walked quickly away. I realize that he might be correct on the smallest level but it was hillarious because he was acting like the world was coming to an end and we all needed to be prepared.

Why do I always get the wierdos??? It's like I have a neon sign stamped on my forehead that pulls these types of people to me!

What great stories! It sounds like I need to get out of the house more. Or mabey my neon sign has been turned off. Or maybe I am the wierdo!!!

Nicole said...

hahaha, that's great. I've had weirdos like that. And I love to hear other peoples stories. :)

I'm glad ALL the weirdo's aren't hanging out at MY WalMart. Although...that one guy sounds more like a creep than a weirdo.

It's funny...when you're single and the guy is good looking...didn't you wish that kind of thing would happen. I remember in college, grocery shopping with my roommates and flirting with guys in the grocery store...but it never produced results like that.

And when some one hits on you in Walmart...it was very unwelcome. Who seriously does that? Not only did you have a ring and a child, but you were WAY out of his league.

Bethany, do you remember me commenting on the "hill people" coming out to our walmart after dark. It is totally creepy!!!!!

My solution...try Target!

Crazy peeps. Both happened at Wal-Mart Bethany? Here is a little hint, don't go to Wally world without Jacob, or don't go at all. There are some crazies in Utah- the one and only time I was stalked that I am aware of, was in the Provo Library. I'm glad he didn't try anything crazy.
