Aww- you're just plain nuts.
I have similar problems- kinda like saying I have ice cream, too, but it's a different flavor.
People stare at me like I have a second head coming out of my shoulders. Not everyone... just certain people. They seem to come from all walks of
life- from the gangsta thug to the knitting bag toting granny. The WORST experience was when I went to a seafood place for dinner. I had a bad day at
work, and I was dirty, tired, and just plain disgusting feeling. I wander into the takeout end of the place, walk to the counter, put my finger on the
item I wanted (Death by shrimp. Mmmm), and watched in shocked amazement as the girl behind the counter- who I had NEVER seen before,
, and DIVE thru
the double doors to the kitchen! I am left STILL standing there, finger on menu item, mouth hanging open, and staring at her coworker, who is trying
to sputter out an excuse (meanwhile, there's these 2 beady eye peering thru the kitchen door portholes). I got my order, left, and never went back.
The usual look I get is the one reserved for people dressed in a black leather duster, and carrying a shotgun. I have people who seem to take great
glee in trying to run me off the road. And me- ME... he could almost fight his way out of a wet paper bag, if I have scissors and map- scared the
living crap out of 2 bikers who decided I was worth messing with. I tried to find my self defense item (a large wrench handle), and I gave them a
look, and all of a sudden, the mouthing off stopped, and they both stared at me like I just pulled a cannon out of my pocket and had it aimed at them.
It's almost like anyone who hocks me off is suddenly expecting severe pain and death when I could just as easily bleed all over them instead.
I could go on for hours- this is just a sample. I do know how it feels... people giving you looks, or trying to act like 'they aren't there', and
the feeling someone's playing your life like a Nintendo game. With cheatcodes.
Edited because Spell check hates me.
