I just shouldn't be allowed in public.


Those of you who have Trader Joe's in your area probably love it as much as I do. Lucky for me, there is one 10 minutes from where I live and about a mile from where I work.

I had a weird experience at the work store a couple of days ago. While in the checkout line, the conversation went like this:

(Male)Checker: "Did you just move here from the west side? I remember seeing you at the west side store."
Me: "No, but I work nearby."
Checker: "You know, it's weird, I've had, like, three customers move here from the west side. And they all pointed out that they knew me at the other store. Which was kind of weird."

(Hello...isn't that what you just did?)

Me: "Yeah, weird."
Checker: "And what's really weird is that I have this friend who does his hair like I do, and has sideburns like I do, so sometimes people confuse us."

(Why, exactly, do you think I give a flying fuck?)

Me, right before I walk out the door: "Yeah, people confuse me for other people with brown hair and big boobs all the time."

I just shouldn't be allowed out in public sometimes.

People confuse me with Bradley Cooper. Seriously nonstop. ESPECIALLY at Trader Joe's.

Nice to be so well known among the big boob and brown hair crowd. :D

LL Cool Joe said...

Some of us give off a "Fuck off vibe", you must give off a "Talk to me about any old crap" vibe. :D

I reckon he was just making conversation in the hope that you would mention your big boobs.

If anyone belongs out in public, it is you. Your comment was perfect.

I agree with Gorilla Bananas.

You have brown hair and big boobs?

Me too.

G said...

Standing out in a crowd of brown hair and big boobs is always a good thing. :D

ileana said...

Oh he was totally hitting on you, chica. When they try to be subtle like that it comes out all wrong.

Love, love, love your parting words, mi'ja! :D

GB: You may be right.
MC: LOL, thanks!
LDML: :)
ABFTS: Bwahaha! Do you get mistaken for me?
G: All I can say is, be careful what you wish for...
I: I didn't realize that until afterwards. What a lame way to do it!

G said...

Oh?

If I wish hard enough, will Glinda the Good With make my wish come true?

Or will I be cursed to spend the rest of my life surrounded by Lindsay Lohan wannabes?

Ally said...

Riot Kitty said...

G: There's only one way to find out!
Ally: That is sad :( I thought you lived in NJ? They have TJ's in NY...

Mike_D said...

That checkout dude had the best day ever.....

Marnie said...

He was really insightful :0)

Darth Weasel said...

you know what is really weird? There is a guy who looks just like me who follows me everywhere I go. Every time I look in a mirror he looks back at me. It is actually quite frightening

Riot Kitty said...

Mike: Maybe ;)
M: LOL
D: LMAO! Your evil twin?

G said...

Oh?

he says with one raised eyebrow and his curiousity piqued

I think I saw you at the park today. You know, in the drum circle at the park. Actually, I think there were about seven of you.
