People doing weird things in public - Page 6

post #76 of 109
Thread Starter 
I just remembered... one summer I worked as a cashier at one of those discount department stores. A woman (30+) makes her purchases and walks towards the door by my till just in time to see her bus go by at the bus stop directly in front of the doors... she screams like a banshee and starts crying. Not that "big girl and they're out of ice cream cry"... she's crying and screaming like someone just shot her. This woman actually threw a 2-year old temper tantrum right in front of the door, lying on the ground kicking and screaming because she missed the bus. Like an ass, I had no idea what to do... so I just served the customer and paged the manager when I had a free minute.

Just to revive this.

Today I was waiting for the LRT downtown, and some disheveled looking person with a bunch of shopping bags with starts walking up to payphones one by one looking for change in the change return slots. Are people that broke that they're hunting for nickels, or is there something I'm not getting?

Happens all the time. Hell, I remember doing it as a kid hoping I'd strike it rich with a quarter.

Whats odd to me is that Canada has payphones

Yesterday, was standing in a tube carriage as doors were closing. A bloke suddenly rushes to get on, whereupon the woman he's pushing shouts, "mind my breasts". Many giggles were unsuccessfully stifled until we reached Green Park.

I see this sort of shit all the time, usually from homeless people.

Once I was walking past a fountain in the 9e arrondissement and I saw two homeless guys start fucking in broad daylight. Literally pants-down, dick-in-ass action at 3 in the afternoon in front of a marble 18th century statue.

A few months ago, I was walking along the rue St-Denis (the main prostitute district) at night when I saw a humongously fat black woman storm out of a building, wagging her finger and rolling her eyes. Then some skinny old dude with no shirt came out after her and started pleading, "please baby, I need you, I'm so in love with you!" to which she replied, "you ain't no good, you ain't got no money, I ain't fallin' for that one again!" It was pretty hilarious.

Paris has a ton of batshit crazies who scream at the top of their lungs or who talk to themselves constantly. It's so common that I don't even really notice it anymore. There are also tons of guys who piss on the sides of buildings.

The staircase of the Bastille opera is home to a motley collection of scum and riff-raff who haven't bathed for days, spend all their time drinking shitty lager and all seem to own massive rottweilers which they keep on chains. They all have dreadlocks, dress in black or in military fatigues, and smoke used cigarette butts found on the ground. The other day I saw one of them had brought her baby in a carriage while the rest were milling about drunkenly. Another time, I watched as the alpha male of the group had found some french fries in a dumpster and took pleasure in feeding them to his dog while some other dude groveled at his feet to ask for a taste.

Honourable mention to the crazy homeless lady near my office who has constructed some sort of nest in the lee of a building and holds up a sign which reads, "please ask M. xxxx why he ruined my directorial career and forced me to live on the street" followed by a phone number. Sometimes she screams at you if you stare at her too long.

When I lived in San Francisco, I once looked out the window of my place on a sunny mid-morning Sunday and saw a completely naked dude (save for socks and sneakers) standing on the sidewalk across the street and jerking off. He didn't look homeless or otherwise crazy. A gay couple strolled by a moment later and gave his dick a couple of quick jerks, sort of like a strange handshake, before continuing on their way.

Was this in August?

this is referred to as the "the knob hill hello" outside of jasmin's cafe.

How do you know she's American?

Yet another example of why every stylish man should always have a female German companion on hand.

I've seen a man in his 40's start to cry when he lost at Super Street Fighter 2. This was in an arcade full of people. But yeah, he lost to some teenager and started crying uncontrolably. (circa 1996)

I saw a girl climb a tree at a party, hide out of sight, and piss on people walking into the party.

I used to work doing industrial landscaping, and so we'd weed eat huge portions of land along creeks and rivers. I've walked up on numerous hookers and Johns on blankets porking in broad daylight near parks, and not even in shitty parts of town.

I've seen homeless people asleep in BBQ pavillions at parks with 9-10 bottles of sterno on or around them.

I saw a woman throw a frappuccino at her barista because it wasn't non-fat.

I've seen a 150 lb woman tackle a 280lb shoplifter.

We have someone similar in Calgary. He is called Mr. Southland. He stands on the side of a busy road (Southland Drive) and has various balls, double sided hockey sticks and other sports related "weapons". He has invented a new double sided hockey stick game and will play said game for hours on end no matter the weather.

We had one too, he didn't dance but was super nice and just talked to drivers at a busy intersection; doesn't even ask for money. He passed away recently.q
