I (me) was at the grocery store with some friends yesterday and the lady checking out in front of us was receiving her change (CB (crazy bitch)). It didn't look like the guy at the register did anything wrong but the lady snapped...

CB: "You could have just thrown it at me. That would have been better."
Me: "He didn't do anything wrong."
CB: "You didn't see it."
Me: "I was right here watching him give you the change."
CB (angrily/demeaningly): "Sir, you weren't here the whole time." (True, but I SAW HIM give her the change. Nicely. Not thrown.)

...and then as she walked away she muttered rather loudly "What a bunch of weirdos."

The guy at the register said it was cool and I didn't need to say anything, but I still feel like that lady didn't have to be such a total bitch about it. And it makes me sad she called me a weirdo. If I ever see her again I'm gonna call her a fat old bitch and see how she likes getting her feelings hurt.

If being "normal" is being an anal-retentive hag like her, I'd rather be a weirdo any day! :yes:

I've often been called "freak" or "weirdo"... and I wear that label proudly! :D

One of the twit's parting shots to me was the badge of "freak" (mmkay, I wish to get paid for my talents and time therefore I'm a freak...). My reply was an overly-cheerful "Thank you!" (I think that pissed her off more than anything) :D

A while back, I was doing a parade thingy and was making small talk with someone who went to high school at the same time as me. When I mentioned that I didn't recognize her, she told me that she knew who I was but that we had never spoken because I lived on the "wrong" side of the freeway and was "one of those people my mother warned me about".

I was SO thrilled! No scarcasm here, during my mispent youth I would have died with pleasure had anyone said such a thing. At the time it happened, I was in the most respectable stages of my life.

Enjoy those times when people think you are special and unique. You will likely spend many years being thought of as mundane and boring. Thats when remembering the freak times will make you happy.

I love it when people tell me I'm weird, or a freak.
"Yes Sir/Ma'am/other. Indeed I am, Proud of it, too. Anything else I may do to make you go 'WTF?' today?"

If you *really* want to mess with the "normal" people, you can always reply with something like "well, at least I'm not afraid to be myself." That always throws them for a loop.

I've always considered myself "naturally goofy." Normal is boring. Trust me. Growing up, however, various people insisted I "act normal." Uh, ok. NOT! Even though I took *lots* of crap because of my quirks, I can honestly say that I don't have any regrets about it. Since I never made myself out to be something I wasn't, why should I?

I loved being called a wierdo, or strange, or anything like that. I even go out of my way to be wierd sometimes, like when I came up behind my co-worker, and started chewing on his shoulder. Talk about :wtf: . Plus sometimes I'll take empty candy boxes and put them on over my shoes, and walk around like that. I broke my manager's brain because of that. She came up to ask me something, noticed the boxes on my feet, stopped talking mid-word, and walked away. :lol:

Normal is boring, weird is amusing. :D

I love being wierd, puts life in perspective for me. Mediocreity just annoys me, nothing beats doing strange things. Even if I get some looks from people, I'm happy that way. There's a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers called "Freaky Styley", the chorus goes "I'm freaky styley and I'm proud!" That is defintely my song right there.

I also believe that normal is boring. No one wants that. Trust me.

Be neurotic, normal is overrated. :)

Here's a thought for all of us "weirdos" -

I think we're the ones who are normal . .. all those boring, stuffy, stuck up, snobish idiots that call us freaks are the weirdos.

And for some reason, another thought comes to mind - I can't remember where I heard this line, but I'm glad I don't live by this motto -

"I'm an individual . . . just like everyone else." :)

Man, I'm so abnormal, I've been known to scare people off of me. And the doctors told my mom they wanted me to ride the short bus for the rest of my life.

Heh, she mentally told them to screw themselves, and I'm still allowed to roam free throughout society like a good little nut. :D

So yes, be happy they called you weird. Not everyone can have that title and wear it proudly.

Yes!!! There is, in fact, an equation that explains this- it's very simple:

Weird=Good Normal=Boring Wierd+Normal=Eeeeewwww....

:confused: but... but... I wasn't TRYING to be weird. I was just sticking up for a guy because that crotchety old lady was being a bitch. If I REALLY wanted to act like a weirdo I would have bought a cross necklace and follow her out to the car pretending to rid her of demons. But that's just me :(

Maybe in her little world that's not supposed to happen (i.e. retail workers are supposed to bow and scrape to her every whim and what she says goes no matter how deluded it may seem).

I've stuck up for other customers/workers before, and gotten odd looks/"death glares" that couldn't even give a fly a headache.
