So it's a nice day out. I'm walking down the street, Cryptonomicon under my arm, eating some delicious frozen yogurt.

And some guys stopped at a stoplight begin yelling out their car window at me. About how nice a day it is, and don't I agree, motherfucker?

I do, but I'm just chillin', trying to enjoy the weather and my frozen yogurt, and I don't need people to agree with me. So I ignore them, and they begin to get hostile, wondering why I don't agree that it's such a beautiful day and thinking that I must be a dirty cocksucker. Meanwhile, my enjoyment is going down substantially and I just want to get back home and enjoy my frozen yogurt in peace, but they persist, like their day won't be complete until I agree that it is indeed a beautiful day outside.

Man, people are weird.

    My brother is the nerdiest white guy you will find on the face of the earth. his first car had the lisence plate "AZN 648" or something.

    He never understood why Asian guys would drive up to him next in cars, go to challenge him to a race, get really confused, then drive off.

    You know, today was a really nice day so I decided to take a drive. While I was at a light I decided to share my happiness of this lovely day with this dude who looked to be pretty cool. Ends up he was a total asshole. All I said was, hey nice day today huh? And he totally fucking blows me off. What an asshole. He ruined my nice day.

    That reminds me, I work at a place that sells frozen yogurt. Some guy came up today and wanted to buy some frozen yogurt, but when he walked away these nice people asked him if it was a wonderful day. He grew increasingly hostile to these nice people. I should have refused that asshole service.

    I got jumped in the street once for no reason, too. I mean, if they had asked me if it was a nice day, I would have said yes, so it's not even like my ignoring of them prompted them to jump me. They actually asked me where the party was at and I told them I didn't know, and then they kicked me in the eye.

    I should start carrying a gun in the off chance someone throws a football at my head I will be ready for them.

    Anyway I rarely understand what the hell people are saying unless I'm engaged wit them.

    whenever someone just says something out of the blue I'm always "what?"

    Mr. Banballow was so badly maimed, he turned into a hideous monster, oozing and bleeding, snarling and growling like a beast---enraged and bent on revenge. He tracked down the kids responsible for the fire and killed them one by one----with a blowtorch. That wasn't enough for Banballow. He won't leave his inn or his memories, so there he waits....in ambush....

    the other day some lady got off the bus, tripped up on some guys foot when she walked right into it while he was standing there facing the other way
    then he turned around and she yelled at him to fuck off and walked away

    i thought that was pretty funny to see
    especially since the guy hadnt seen her mumbling to herself the entire bus trip and occasionally swearing at people and leaning over the guy sitting next to her and telling him 'youre fucking dead'
    while he is there just trying to look out the window and power-ignore her

    So today I was standing in line to get frozen yogurt. This scene kid in front bought some frozen yogurt and was holding some pretentious morbid book or something. I thought he needed some cheering up, but I couldn't quite chase after him because it was finally my turn to get some frozen yogurt. I hope somebody drove up to him and shared their happiness with him or something.

    Then I went home and looked up the guy's book on Wikipedia and found out it wasn't really a pretentious morbid book at all. Oh well, he was still a scene kid, though.

    like she couldve been shaking him to get his attention and he'd still be looking out the window like 'oh wow there is a mcdonalds across the street that requires my full attention so i cant even feel if im being shaken or not'

    Heh, I was walking to campus one morning and as I was going to cross the street there was a car in the road that was backing up, then pulling forward, then just sitting there. I couldn't tell if he was parking or what and he was right where I wanted to go. So I waited a few seconds and then finally decided he saw me so it was safe to cross in front of him after giving him a kind of perplexed look because I couldn't tell what he was trying to do.

    Dude starts yelling out his window at me asking if I've got a problem and I just ignore him as he continues to yell at me calling me a motherfucker and a goddamn pussy, why don't I come back and face him like a real man over the next block and a half.

    When I was about 14 or so, I was riding my mountain bike along the side of the road. Suddenly, a car pulls up alongside of me, and slowly starts creeping over toward me. Before I had a chance to hop the curb up onto the sidewalk, the dude hit me with his fucking car, knocking me and my bike into the grass strip between the curb and sidewalk. I had never seen the dude before in my life. I decided that he either a) hates 14 year olds, b) hates people on bikes, or c) all of the above. It was one of the most random, off the wall experiences I've ever had.

    Man years ago, I was happily riding my bike on my neighborhood sidewalk.

    I was just cruising alone, when this car of teenagers pulls up beside me.

    They roll down their window, and shout to get my attention.

    They then proceed to ask me if I had any Grey Poupon.

    Also, I had none to give.

    Years ago, on senior cut day, I went out to NY's Little Italy with a few of my friends. As we passed by an elderly vagrant, he sobered up just enough to ask us if we were members of the indian mafia.

    None of us were indian.

    I also got hit by a truck when I was like twelve.

    I was riding m'bike home from a friend's house, and right at the last interesection (maybe twenty feet from my house, as I lived on the corner of the street) the sign says "Walk" but the guy in the truck is doing that pull-forward-then-scoot-back thing over and over again. I figure he's just waiting for me to pass so he can turn the corner, so I pedal onward. As soon as I start crossing, he decides, "Now is a good time to gun it!"

    So I get knocked off my bike and thrown a couple feet, while some random lady screeches to a halt, jumps out of her car and proceeds to shout various obscenities at the man who is now falling all over himself to apologize to me. I was just like "Whatever, man. I'm fine. I'm going home." Which I did. And then I took a nap.

    I recently had some crazy people yelling unintelligible things at me from a car playing loud music. I just grinned my best at them, and headbanged to the music they were playing. They laughed manicly, and sped off.

    I'm pretty proud of that.

    I was walking home from track once and these guys pulled up next to me, yelled something, and sprayed me in the face with some low grade mace. Luckilly for me the stuff was weak and I look away a bit as the guy raised it up, but it still burned like hell.

    I was just all "WTF?"
