    I saw a weird guy at a Toys R Us reading all the backs of the Transformers boxes OUT LOUD. Have you guys ever encountered weirdos like this? :confused2

    Yes. Never, ever answer the door wearing a TF shirt. It's a decision you may regret for the reat of your life.

    Since most everyone here is over the age of 12, I'd say that we're all weirdos in someone's eyes for being the toy aisle.

    Of course, I don't read the boxes out loud or anything.

    That is a little odd.

    Oh yes. Years ago when I worked retail I made the mistake of complimenting a customer on his Transformers t-shirt and he proceeded to attach himself to me and jabber my ear off about Transformers for the entire reminder of my shift. SIX HOURS.

    You didn't take a break during that shift? It'd be a good way to get rid of him.

    What I want to know is how was the guy reading them. Muttering softly as he read? Loudly proclaiming them to all nearby shoppers? With slightly creepy panting?

    I'm not too sure if you encountered the same one I did at Dekalb Avenue TRU last year, but was he screaming out ALOUD the names of the figs? Besides that funky behavior, he was overweight and an odor was emanating from his body.

    My strategy: I stay far far away until he leaves the aisle because they will try to start a conversation on TF that leads to nowhere. :D

    All these year and I have yet to run into a fellow fan in a toy aisle...and I think I'm glad....no offense to anyone here as I'm sure the majority of you are decent people and not the freaks you've been discussing, but with my luck, I am sure that's the type I'd run into.

    I've only run into one or two here and there... Luckily Viv comes by for me and yells "HURRY THE HELL UP!!!" and bails me out of a conversation...:D

    No, it wasn’t that bad, it was more like he was reading to an audience. He would read one then move on to another one. I wonder if he even bought any.

    No it wasn’t that guy, but it was at Dekalb Ave TRU! I think that store just attracts the strange element. :D

    Yup. Been in a situation like this. Made a post about it a while back too...

    The guy kept me there 90 minutes, telling me VERBATIM about fanfics, and he didn't know about Galaxy Force (and corrected me on it repeatedly), didn't know about the movie, etc.

    If I see him now? I run and duck for cover. I hit the floor and slide for homebase motha fooker!

    This is why I go for the hit and run method of toy searching. Get to the aisle, refuse to make eye contact, thumb through the pegs, and be on the move. I can be in and out in under a minute, depending on the peg density.
