    2 examples-

    I met up with an old buddy I hav'nt seen since high school. This dude was my best friend as a kid.
    Everything's was good again, until he stood up, grabbed a cane and started limping around yelling at his gf like she's a dog. Im not a white knight so I lol'ed at first, but that's all he did that night was limp around yelling like an old war vet.
    The friend I knew was funny as hell and laughed all the time. That was awkward.


    Another time I was in Target, and there was another dude checking out the TF's. We began converstaing and he seemed like the coolest guy on the planet. Dude even had funny jokes .
    And then a Target employee walks by. That's when the dude I just met asked him to check in the back for something and the employee insisted there was nothing back there. Then the guy started threating him about losing his job and asked for the manager and whaaa whaaaa.
    What happens after that I don't know, I already left from being embarrased.
    I wonder what kids think when they see a grown man yelling at an employee over a toy? Im sorry , but I wish some of you would cut that shit out. Makes us look like Hotwheel collectors.

    I decided to hang out with a dude that my friend knows one night. he works at toys r us, so I thought, hey, why not, seems cool. so he picks me up, takes me to his apartment and proceeds to show me granny porn on the internet (this is back in dial-up days) just to prove it exists or whatever. so, already uncomfortable, he then asks me if I like comics. I say sure, so he's like, I'll bring out a stack of my favorites, you gotta read these while I practice my guitar. so he brings me johnny the homicidal maniac. I maybe read half of one before I started trying to find ways to get him to take me back to my house, asap!

    Oh yeah. My wife's friend's ex boyfriend. When we all hung out, he was a really cool dude man. Into star wars and joes. Well the girls went out together so he asked if I wanted to hang out. I said sure. Well as we are hangin out he goes, " you wanna hang out with some girls?' I said I'm not the type to cheat really. He was like "you'll change your mind when you see them". I knew I was in for a long night. This dude turned out to be a pig man. They were hookers! Shit got wierd quick. I told him that if he ever stepped foot in my house, I would let hs girl know about his bullshit and walked 26 miles home that night. I told my girl and of course she told her friend.

    oh forget it. I meet crazy people all the time. a while back I went to a party for my friends baby and got re-aquainted like with a fellow I was friends with in junior high and high school. He's interested in art and was then so I told him the next time I had a show he should come down. I invited him to our "open studios" event which is kind of like a weekend long neighborhood wide event where artists of all kinds leave their studio door open and the general public is encouraged to walk the neighborhood and see what's what. Anyway I invited this friend. Turns out the guy is a hardcore boozer. He got completely and totally ripped.. he arrived completely and totally ripped and proceeded to drink all the beer I put in the fridge for any guests or whoever might want one. He also brought a glass skull full of vodka and drank most of it. He was loud, obnoxious and behaving like a typical belligerant drunk which did not go unnoticed by the studios manager and just about everyone in attendace which I believe included my mother. He made a total mess of my studio. He kept falling into the walls, knocking things over and spilling his drinks all over the floor. I had a little shelf with crappy toys and whatnot on it as he was falling he grabbed onto it for dear life and ripped it right off the wall knocking everything I so carefully placed to the floor. He broke a Pez dispenser on purpose trying to stuff it into his glass sideways(?) While he praised me and my art the whole time to the point where it made me uncomfortable, he also berated me a bit and gave me the ol "you think.. hic.. you think you're better than me" routine. I couldn't get him to leave either. Finally at like 2am after everyone one else left I'm like "dude, I'm going, come on" I start walking my bike to the door he grabs my rear wheel in a deathgrip and won't let go. I say "let go of my wheel" and - nothing. I say it again a bit more firm "LET GO OF MY WHEEL" he mutters "go ahead, hit me!" Once I finally got him out of the building I flagged down the first cab I saw and got him into it which was another hassle. Funny thing is I remain friends with this guy as he's not so bad otherwise, he just has a problem with the drink. I even gave him a painting for his birthday seeing how he praises my work to the point of it making me uncomfortable. Last time he came down to one of my art shows he was very well behaved the whole night until on the way home we stopped in a dunkin donuts and there was a woman in there who was obviously a drug addicted prostitute. He left with her.

    I've met a whole bunch of cool people I really wish were friendlier/less stand-offish. One great example is an elderly surgeon at the hospital I work; he's got loads of experience under his belt and would make a great teacher if he weren't so damn crotchety.

    I once saw a hobo knock over a trash can onto the street, and then start yelling at it.

    I met someone at the TRU here in the Springs. All I'll say his....we started talking about TFs, and his BO was....well he needed a shower...BAD. I tried to get away from him by hinting that I needed to go, but the dude just followed me into every aisle. Finally, I just got blunt and said I had to go.

    Nearly all people I went to school with are somehow scary. They look as if they were all of a sudden 10 years older than me and everyone marries and gets children... it's as if I was using a Timemachine and see how they end up in the future, only that we're in the same time right now.

    Dr. House isn't a surgeon.

    As for the original question, I'm the one the scares other people away.

    My old neighbor's kid was a little David Banner. He'll be chilled for a minute, then he'd throw his bycycle at us.
    Little Mexican kid ,looked like Ram Man but with ice cream.
