Last week I started the post to get your posts thread up and I decided on a new tradition.

Every weekend let's start a new thread for off the wall stuff. Tonight let's do weird people we have run across and tell a story about them.

1st,
Back in 1989 I started working for a Catholic home for children with severe cases of Cerebral Palsy. I was a swing shift maintenance man and only 19 at the time.

There was this guy work worked day shift in the maintenance dept and we'll call him Joe. He was a porn addict and he kept a stash of porn mags in our office which was below ground off the side of the boiler room. he would look at the mags while licking he lips and making what could only be described as Popeye noises. He watched a lot of porn at home and admitted his wife and teenage kids did as well. I met all of them and they were the strangest family to say the least.

It got really cold one winter back around then and he wouldn't let his wife and kids bring the family dog into the garage or basement. The dog froze to death and the ground was too frozen to bury the poor critter. The dog died laying on it's side in a running poistion, so Joe thought it would be fun to stand the dog up on the porch until the ground thawed.

I haven't met too many human beings that repulsed me like he did.


2nd,

I knew this couple in highschool and they dated from juior high up through college. They're probably married now too. They liked to get naked and do risky things while that way. They got high on shrooms one night and decide to drive the belt way around Cincy naked. Well, they got pulled over of course and they were both 17, so their parents had to get involved. They were strange birds to say the least.
I knew another guy that used to beg to be dropped off while on acid way out in the country, so he could hitch hike home. It was some sort of game to him.

This actually happened to me not too long ago. I was picking my wife up from work one night. She was working 3-11pm that night, so I left a little early to grab some stuff from WalMart before I picked her up. I took the back way into the town where she worked and had to stop at an intersection. Now this intersection was in a very secluded place. When I stopped at the 4-way, these guys surrounded the car. They were dressed in solid black from head to toe wearing long trench coats and including a very bad jet black dye job on their hair. One of the guys walked up to the drivers side window and started making weird faces at me. The only way for me to leave was to run over one of them. But all of a sudden, they took off running as fast as they could down over the hill. I don't know what could have possibly scared them to run.:dunno: I guess looking down the barrel of a 9mm has that affect on people.:2guns:

One time at one of our furnace distributors, a man came in and said he wanted to buy a furnace. When the clerk gave him a total, the man responded "I wanted to buy it on credit." The clerk explained to the man that they didn't accept credit. The man got very angry and said "Well if I'm gonna have to pay for it, I'll go buy it somewhere else."

This one happened at our local lumber yard. The people that own it are very trusting people and have their own inhouse credit. One day a man walked into The Home Center and ordered a whole truck load of supplies. The customer said he wanted to charged the order so the owner asked him what name to put on the bill. The customer responded "Jack Hammer." So the owner billed him and Jack left. Jack never came back and payed his bill.

I was working on a lawnmower engine and had it all tore apart. I needed to go get a part and left it all laying in my driveway. While in town, it started to rain. I hurried home to gather all the parts before they got too wet and were ruined. When I got home, it was raining all around my parking lot. There was only about a 25 ft. circle that it wasn't raining. I hurried up and gathered my parts and tools and put them on the porch. When I had picked up the last wrench, the circle began shrinking and it started raining on my parking lot.

Ummm...I meet so many strange ppl they kinda seem normal now. BUT One day about a month ago this white dude came in the music store I work at wearing a white terry cloth jump suit, tie-dyed green cape and yellow turban! Of course my buddy asked if we could help him. Well come to find out he is on SSI for mental disabilty....hmmm go figure...and he plays keyboard. Well he gets on one, finds the ORGAN and plays the Dracula music....REALLY Creepy! Well he stays a while and when he does leave he leaves this song about our town set to Silent Night, in 8/8time (doesn't exist persay it is 4/4). We later found out, before he came in here the local cops had him pulled over checking him out! :lol: Good Ol' NETX
