For some reason every weirdo, social outcast and crackpot I come into contact with immediately assumes I am their best friend.
Now this isn’t always a bad thing, in fact most of the time it results in humorous occurances. I am just bemused as to why it always seems to happen, especially in the freakish manner it does- take the following cases:
An epileptic drug dealer who enjoys being violent, using drugs (despite the ensuing seizures) and playing the saxaphone lists me as his best friend. Actually this one doesn’t really count as I have known him since we were both about 5.
Anyone remember the 'doper nonpolar? Picture a small asian guy with his linguistic capacity and a hatred for personal hygeine. Who do you think he singled out from a crowd of people he didn’t know and followed around constantly for about a week? that’s right- me! This guy also had a penchant for taking stuff that didn’t belong to him and one day (about a week after he started following me) made the mistake of taking the above-mentioned drug dealer’s ID card.
The Bitching Bosnian (a surly croatian guy who seems to do nothing but mutter under his breath about how much he hates everyone, even when all they say is hi) suddenly starts talking to me and even taking my insults in good nature, but relapses to his old behaviour whenever anyone else is present.
I could go on (and on and on) but I am interested to hear whether anyone else has the same thing happen to them, or can offer an explanation. :dubious:
