Have you ever been trolled? Reddit user elmhing tells their story about how a random stranger played a little prank on them.
"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".
What makes a tourist so noticeable? Reddit user bullet tells about his friendly encounter with Canadians. Do we look more confused? Is there a telltale sign that someone doesn't belong?
"I was walking around Montreal one day (I'm American) minding my own business and not saying anything, and someone passing me smiled and said -
'Welcome to Canada!'
How the hell do they always know?!"
Apparently before the times of sharing memes and pictures via internet or texting, people got a little creative. Reddit user SuperBearJew tells their funny encounter at a restaurant.
"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"
What would your response be? Reddit user jaybyrdie03 tells their story about when a random stranger said something that took them totally guard.
"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"
Senile or no? Reddit user admiral_bonetopick tells his story about the time a random older man basically called him Mr Just Okay.
"I was walking out of the grocery store when a middle aged man approached me -
'Do you know that redhead that lives around here? You should meet her. I mean, you're not the worst'...
What vibe are you giving off? Apparently Reddit user kandyshiva gives off a Teepee vibe?
"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'..."
