Drive-by joking

I was walking down the hall the other day at work, when a slightly disheveled looking gentleman approached me.

I thought that he was probably a visitor (I work in a hospital), and, I'm used to giving directions.

He walked up to me, invaded my "personal bubble", and, said rather loudly, "HEY! You wanna hear a joke?"

Figuring I didn't have much choice in the matter, I said, "OK".

He went on, "Why are womens' brains bigger than mens'?"

I replied, "I have no idea."


He had grabbed my arm and was shaking it violently and in rhythm with each "HA!"

Then he stopped suddenly and walked away.

Did he lift your wallet?
Because that's the technique I'd use.

You know, if I were the type to pick pockets ... which of course I am not.

*walking off indignantly*

Sounds like the mental ward is missing one of it's special guests.

I was wondering where Dad had run off to...

When he left did you say to yourself, "bless his heart" ?

LOL! "Drive By Joking"! Love it!

Are you still shaking your head?


Tell me you slugged him. I'm a non-violent person but I condone violence by others who think they are funny but aren't.
So, didja? Didja?

How random is that? I prolly would've been totally creeped out. LOL.

Well that's...interesting?? People are so weird!

O --- K ---- That was weird. I would have been a bit freaked out about that; especially the personal bubble part.

I see you've met my uncle...

Why are you so lucky to have all the strange encounters?

I'm sorry, ma'am. I just wasn't myself that day. They changed my meds. I didn't mean any harm. I think I was channeling my grandfather.

Clearly he realized mid-sentence how unfunny he was and figured he had already made a fool of himself and the best thing to do at that point was to cut his losses and get out of there... right? No?

Ok, your right, probably he is just a mental patient. Don't they have locks on that floor?

I just don't understand weird and crazy people that are unfunny. Weird and crazy works for me, but at least by funny about it.

Did you call security?

No. Freaking. Way. That is seriously the most bizarre/funny/disturbing story I've heard all week. How do you get so lucky?

That's what ya get for being at Vanderbilt

Okey dokey . . . All the quaint and unusual (pc for freaky) people do not live in Georgia. Not exactly scarey but slightly disconcerting.

Hahahaha. You have the best random-stranger stories.

I vote for the theory of the escapee from the psych ward. Somewhere, a village is missing its idiot.

That is very random. Was the psych ward missing a patient that day? At least he didn't hurt you, so I guess it's all good. =D

And you didn't do anything? I wish I had the same kind of self-control...
