Yeah, but what about the other person who experienced the exact same thing?

Now that I think about it, when Frrrank gets back online and sees we caught him, THIS will probably be his new most recent awkward moment!

See post 130. Wasn't it Frrrank who told this story before? Who else used it?

J's gotta stop having all these conversations with himself with all these aliases. I'm losing track.

You are correct. Read it wrong! I thought 132 was another person telling the story, but it was just someone quoting him.

Damn. Guess I need to try leading a more interesting life, if that's the best I can do. Sorry for the redundancy. Maybe I should share some of my "evil ex-wife" experiences, God-forsaken little hellion that she is. Curdle your freakin' blood, they would, may dogs gnaw her bones.

Please share! .... Some of us lead such uninteresting lives (me, in particular) I have to live vicariously through this and other entertaining threads.

As a practical joke, this old man I don't even know pulled out his dentures and 'surprised' me. He thought the unsuspecting youngster would be amused. Instead I felt violated.

hmmm...where did he put those dentures? If he set them on your keyboard that seems a bit unsanitary and not very funny.

He held them in his hand. My friend and I were making icky/confused faces. Is that acceptable public behavior?

You know, in the 21st century we don't call poor people "peasants" anymore, unless you're from Mongolia or something...

I actually quite like talking to people on airlines, assuming they're responsive (or if they're hot, young and female...)

It makes the flying more pleasant, particularly day flights. However, if the other person doesn't seem interested, I'll usually lapse into silence. But generally I find that most people are quite happy to talk. Nothing awkward about it, unless the other person is really weird or something.

luckily (or unluckily), ivan was working in a different department. things became surreal though a few days later when i came in for work an hour early. i was talking to my boss about tps reports or some shit, and at the climax of our conversation, the door behind opened and our new third body walked into the room like a centipede with 98 missing legs. out of the corner of my eye, i notice it was my rite-aid shopping boss...settling himself at apparently his new desk...just right behind us. did he actually not think i noticed him seeing me?

of course, it was only a matter of time before we bumped into each other in the building, and we did twice. quite frankly, i'm tired of typing now but i can assure you they were exceedingly awkward moments. most satisfying though is how we both pretended to be surprised to see each other for the first time in the buildling even though we both knew the other knew of each other in the building. actually, the most satisfying is the fact that i make more money than my old boss now an, and i suppose it's an auxiliary satisfaction as well that my old boss is no longer a boss and makes less money than before. a little homework suggests foul play at our old workplace. karma, anyone?




he must have hated you for a long time..

sounds like you work in HR?

Sitting in on a meeting with my parents who were buying their burial plots. It got really awkward when the representative for the memorial garden asked my parents if they were buying a space for me as well. Dying at the tender age of 19 is a pretty frightening premise for me :-/

poor farmers = peasants. words don't become invalidated just because some people get pc

well, I'm hoping that we don't end up sitting next to each other on a flight. I hate it when somebody sits down next to me and wants to talk. I end up having to do the whole earphones/face mask thing.
