People Share The Weirdest Thing Someone's Said To Them Out Of The Blue

Randomness is awesome because it's fun to keep people on their toes. Who cares what people think; be spontaneous just for the reactions.

LobotomizedThruMeEye asked: What is the weirdest thing that somebody has said to you out of the blue?

What if all your teeth were beans?

"What if we replaced all the beads in bean bags with teeth?"

SpartanSPI

You would get an "a** chewing."

willest0

Were you sitting on a bean bag at the time?

LobotomizedThruMeEye

Nope, it was completely out of the blue.

SpartanSPI

Obviously yes.

Got stopped on the streets of Nice by an old asian woman, who asked me 'Are you the dancer?'

To which I said 'Yes.'

She said she was a big fan, I thanked her.

I am not the dancer.

jackalope5225

So you're the human?

elgatodorado

Yes.

heatherthehuman

Uh thanks.

"I like your eyeballs."

UnlikelyReference

A good friend of mine was notorious for handing out very strange compliments where I remember we were at the comic book store once and he just stared at the cashier and said "You know *extends arm so it is barley touching the cashiers face* you have very nicely sculpted eye brows."

ChunkyMunky666

Everyone looks good in bright yellow pants, right?

A priest walked up to me and said: "you have a great figure for golf" and then walked away.

Welcome to the club.

Those damn ducks.

I had just gone for a run, and was in the apartment elevator. An old man in the elevator said 'i don't go for walks because there are ducks.' I was like 'yeah,' and then his wife was like 'there is nothing wrong with ducks!'

Anatidaephobia: the fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you.

SpyTrain_from_Canada

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

Someone drawing my blood during a blood drive asked if I was a Mormon. I was not. Neither was she. She didn't explain why she asked that. This was my only interaction with this human.

olemiss18

Maybe she was confusing Mormons with Jehovah's Witnesses, who believe the Bible prohibits donating blood? Still weird either way.

yourjacketthough

Another eyeball admirer.

"Can I lick your eye?" And then she did.

Greycupcake

Context please.

LobotomizedThruMeEye

In high school a girl I knew introduced her female friend. The friend looked at me (also female) and asked if she could lick my eye, which I replied to with utter confusion. A few moments of my stammering and her persistence, I challenged her with a yes. It was a mistake.

Nailed it.

I was shopping in a bookstore and an Asian woman comes up from behind me and starts talking to me.

I turn to see who this person is, and she says, "I'm sorry, I thought you were my son."

I am a white female with long hair. I later see her son who is about 7-years-old with short hair and is Asian.

OneCraft

I wish you would have said "I thought you were my Daddy."

Wowkesleymynamesucks

This is a great compliment tbh.

An old lady sitting at the table behind me in a coffee shop once tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I'd ever done radio, because evidently I have a wonderful speaking voice and enunciation. I was high for a week on that compliment.

Booji-Boy

People tell me I have a face for the radio!

mb1293

That is so sweet.

LobotomizedThruMeEye

Best one here! So cute.

bornwithatail

Just to raise eyebrows.

"What a cute kitty!"

I was walking my dog.

elemonated

And just how... old was this individual?

to_the_tenth_power

Like 45-55! Like a slightly older than middle aged woman thought I was walking a cat on a leash in New York City.

It wasn't even a residential area. I had taken my dog to work so we were in Chelsea.

elemonated

Ahaha I do that whenever I see a cute dog on the street, sometimes I'd just go "aw what a cute armadillo" and it either gives a laugh from the owner or a look of absolute confusion.

NotSamNub

We are told that, if you're not confident, you should just "fake it til you make it."

This is great--in theory. In practice, sometimes "faking it" can have extremely real and terrible consequences, which these people found out the hardest of hard ways.
