    I've encountered all sorts of weirdos over the years, mostly thanks to working in retail and because I'm also a bit weird myself. From my experience, I can say there's 3 types of weird.

    The first is where people know you've got a few loose screws but they still like you anyway because being strange is what makes you interesting. The second type are those that just make you laugh and provide hours of entertainment. And finally, there are those that are creepy, scary, and make you think WTF!?

    As I said, I used to work in retail, specifically in electronics entertainment, and I used to see all kinds of people ranging from the typical game geek to the downright bizzare. We had one guy who was a huge nintendo fanboy and absolutely hated xbox (he thought Microsoft was the evil empire). We called him baby Huey because he was tall, heavy-set, and a bit slow in the head. Then there's this one neighbor of mine who dresses like he's from the 50's. And no he's not an old guy he's a younger dude in his early 30's. That's what makes it odd. He always wears a suite every day, even in the summer, and even if he's just going to the store. I'm starting to think he's got a closet with 20 of the same suites.

    Those are just a few of the weirdos I've encountered. Does anyone here personally know any interesting odd balls?

    I am an artist and so are a lot of my friends, so yes. Creative people are always a bit off.

    Well I'm just gonna have to add to this thread!
    I've known some pretty odd birds in my time! LOL

    For example, a guy who got his licence but was overly cautious...
    He would put the car in Park at the stop sign, lift himself up to check
    the rear view mirror, check both sides for traffic a half a dozen times
    before he felt it was safe to drive...etc..

    Talk nonstop at highspeed while driving way over the speed limit...
    and put the Parking Brake on Everywhere he parked! LOL
    Sorta like Rainman or Forrest Gump!

    Went for a ride with him Once, and nearly died laughing in the back seat
    with a friend , funniest thing was the near bird dance he would do at the
    stop signs...while sitting...OMG...Hilarious.

    Thank Goodness he was Sooo Busy talking with his friend in the front seat
    that he didn't notice us cracking up back there!!! LOL Phew!!!
