Needs To Reorient The Car

| Buffalo, NY, USA | Related | November 22, 2016

(My daughter has recently come out as a lesbian; most of our family is very supportive. She comes out to her aunt (my sister-in-law) as we’re parking in front of the local mall. My sister-in-law parks so badly that the car is at a 45 degree angle with the lines.)

Sister-In-Law: “Wow, I didn’t park very well, did I?”

Daughter: “It’s still straighter than I am.”

Oh (Tom)Boy!

| VIC, Australia | Friendly | November 14, 2016

(I am nine. My mother and I are at the shopping centre on the weekend. I am a huge tomboy, and often wear boyish clothing, as well as having relatively short hair. I walk into the women’s bathroom.)

Random Lady: “Excuse me, this is the women’s bathroom!”

Me: “Yes, I’m quite aware. I am female.”

Random Lady: “Well… you are against god’s will! You dress like a boy! You should be ashamed of yourself!”

Me: “I’m sorry, but I didn’t ask for your opinion.”

(As I’m walking away.)

Random Lady: *gasp* “You are a rude and disrespectful child!”

(Someone who was standing near us and heard the whole conversation intervenes.)

Woman: “No, ma’am. You are rude and disrespectful. You need to learn to respect other people’s choices.”

(The lady gasped and walked away as if she has been slapped. I told my mum about it later and we both laughed at people’s ignorance.)

Trick Or Tipsy

| Australia | Friendly | November 14, 2016

(I overhear the following conversation of a good looking, early- to mid-20s-year-old girl as she is talking on the phone. It is also a few days after Halloween.)

Girl: “Did I tell you the wild Halloween that I had?”

(She pauses for a few seconds as the person replies.)

Girl: “Yeah, so, get this. I’m at home and there’s a knock at the door. So I go and open it and there are two boys standing there in costume, pretty s*** costumes, too, and they do the whole ‘trick or treat’ thing. I didn’t want to be a b**** but I also had nearly nothing in the house and the only thing I could spare was some cans of [Cheap Beer] that were left-over from that party a month ago, so I gave them that.”

(Pauses again.)

Girl: “So, yeah, their parents found out and f****** dobbed me in, so I got fined.”

Eh, Romance…

(My brother is walking through a shopping complex with the woman who has been his girlfriend since high school. They are now in their early 20s. They walk past a jewellry store and there is a sale with 50% off on rings.)

Brother: *turns to his girlfriend and says* “I suppose I should get you one of those, eh?”

(And that is the story of the least romantic proposal of anyone I’ve ever known.)

This Can’t Be Right

| MN, USA | Right | November 2, 2016

(A group of teenagers comes in and one of them approaches me.)

Teenager: “Can you tell us how to get to [Location]?”

Me: “No problem. You just go out my door, turn left, and it’ll be just around the corner. Can’t miss it.”

Teenager: “Thanks.”

(They go out the door, look around for a moment and their spokesperson returns.)

Teenager: “Which way is left?”
