"When visiting Anchorage, Alaska, this random old dude walked up to me and said 'Didn't I run into you once in Nebraska?' I said 'Nope, I've never been to Nebraska'. His reply: 'Neither have I! Must have been two other people!' I got trolled" (Source).
"I was riding my bike when I was 13 or so. I never wore a helmet, like many rebellious 13-year-olds. A guy (30's or so) rode by on a big mountain bike and yells 'You should wear a helmet, you never know when you'll be hit with a UFO'. As I turned to make some kind of response, I was hit, albeit not very hard, in the head with an unopened Star Crunch. To this day I have no idea why this happened to me" (Source).
"When I was a kid I was walking to the store by myself when a group of teenagers started laughing and approached me. I got a little nervous since I was alone. One of the teenagers said 'here kid, you can have this'. It was a dollar. He gave it to me and his group just kept walking. No idea why it happened. Didn't seem to be tainted in any way, it was just a regular old dollar. Went to the store and got candy. Woo" (Source).
"In a restaurant while waiting for a meal when I was 8 or so, an old man walked up to me and asked if I would like a hot dog before my meal. Halfway through saying no he handed me a picture of a tiny wiener dog on a hot dog bun. It completely made my day" (Source).
"Old guy comes up to me and says 'Wanna see me pop out my glass eye?'. Naturally I am caught off guard and all I can come up with is 'No,that's okay'. He says 'Good because I don't have a glass eye. I always ask and no one has taken me up on the offer yet. Don't know what I would do if they did.' Old guys are the best" (Source).
"In NYC a bum came up to me and said 'man, what the white man did to your people was terrible. I love those tepees you live in though'. My response was 'hey man, I'm Indian. You know, like from India. I'm not Native American' His reply 'man, I'm f--ked up. You looked like a tepee type of guy'" (Source).
"Walking through downtown Chicago one evening, I was asked for change by a bum as I walked past him. I informed him that I had no change and continued on my way. A second or so after passing him, I heard 'TASTE THE RAINBOW, A--HOLE!!!' and was almost simultaneously pelted by a handful of Skittles. Its one of my fonder memories of interaction with a homeless person" (Source).
"I was once walking down the street when an old woman who was walking past me said 'Don't worry John, everything's going to be O.K.' and kept on walking without turning back as I stood there thinking 'what the f--k?' to myself. I had never met her before in my life yet she knew my name" (Source).
"I was standing around waiting for my ride home at the university I went to. I must not look happy when I'm standing alone because this guy who looked like Shaggy from Scooby-doo said 'Hey man you dropped your smile' as he walked past me and pointed to the ground. He kept walking like nothing had ever happened. It did make me smile a bit though" (Source).

"I was in Washington D.C. visiting a friend, and we decided to go out on the town to acquire a nice buzz. Needless to say we were a tad inebriated and got separated. I met some pretty girls while on the street and decided to follow them. I soon found myself at an all black club (I was the only white guy) with everyone looking at me. I stepped outside where I overheard two guys making fun of me saying, 'check out his Brad Pitt lookin'-a--'. So drunkenly I approached them and asked if they had a problem. They both chuckled, asked me if I was from out of town, gave me a hit of the blunt they were smoking, and then proceeded to give me $5.00 saying, 'welcome to D.C.'. A truly strange yet awesome experience" (Source).
"Walking out of a Starbucks, get approached by a guy, 'Hey kid. How many cats you got?'
I was too surprised to say I didn't own any pets and managed a 'wwhat?' He points back into the coffee shop and says, 'How many cats?' 'I... I didn't see any cats in there.' 'You sure?'
At this point, a cute girl walks out with her coffee. Stranger guy goes apesh-t. 'HEY KITTY! YEAH, YOU! MEOW MEOW KITTY CAT!' I got the f--k away so fast" (Source).
"Freshman year of college I was leaning against a wall on Haight Street smoking a cig. It was the middle of the day and the 2 girls I was with had gone into some girly store to shop, so I was doing the manly 'lurk outside the store looking bored' thing when a homeless guy walks past. Now homeless people are a common sight in San Francisco so I didn't think much of him, until he spoke to me. He looked right at me and said 'Keep leaning against that wall and you'll turn out just like me man'. The bum looked exactly like me. I swear on my life it was like looking in a mirror that aged my face 20 years. The guy disappeared into the crowd singing some little song, and I was left standing speechless until my friends came out of the store" (Source).
"I was a cocktail waitress at my parents bar and one night an older gentleman smiled at me and I politely smiled back. I gave him his drinks and he lightly took both of my hands and looked me square in the eyes and said 'You look so beautiful tonight. Any man would be lucky to have you'. My knees almost buckled I was so swooned. As I was walking away with an awkward smile on my face I heard him say to his friend. 'See, that's how it's done'" (Source).
"Once I was at a movie theater with my friends. We gave our tickets to the scraggly looking ticket taker, and he said in a slow dreamy voice. 'Always beware the man with....three beards.' I told him I'd keep an eye out, and we walked off. If I ever see a man with three beards, I will probably take off running" (Source).
"I was at the Bonnaroo music festival, wandering back to my camp site when a shirtless man (looking not unlike white jesus) starts walking straight at me from a distance. Following at a short distance behind him is a group of people (looking not unlike a throng of disciples). When the shirtless man reaches me he raises one hand to stop and silence his followers, then rests that handon my shoulder, looks me in the eyes and shouts 'NOTHING GOES IN MY BODY BUT DRUGS AND HAM SANDWICHES!' A great cheer erupts from his followers, he bows a little, and continues on his way" (Source).
"I have a Russian one for you. I was riding the city bus a few years back and me being an average height scrawny male found myself getting picked as usual. This large Tongan tried to talk me into fighting him when the bus got to his stop. A Russian, I sh-t you not with a scar on one eye turns to me and in a calm controlled voice says, 'Do you want me to kill him for you?' I regretfully said no but that was the closest thing to having a mans life in my hands that I've ever experienced" (Source).
"I was standing outside a Barnes and Noble in New York City, sad about something that I can't remember. Apparently I was slouching or something because a man walking by stopped and said, 'Stand up straight and smile, you're pretty'. When I looked up to see he is face I sh-t you not, the man was Ian McKellen (Gandalf, Magneto). I was too shocked to say anything, all I could do was smile and he walked away" (Source).
"I was in Islands of Adventure and I got recognized by somebody for my tumblr account. 'Hey! You're that Ravenclawdia girl!' 'Yeah! Hi! What's up?' 'I'm a big fan of your cooking!' They just walked away after that. I... I don't even cook?" (Source).
"'I got kissed by an angel this morning', said an old man sitting at a bench. It turns out that phrase saved my life. Just as I paused to think and laugh at what he said, an SUV lost control of itself, hurtled towards me as I was just about to cross the street. I was able to jump away.
If I didn't pause, the SUV would have hit me head on" (Source).
