I'm weird, but you're weirder

Everyone has something odd about them. I have a friend who has to rinse her glass before drinking a cup of water from it. Brandon can't stand certain noises, he says they "make his teeth hurt." A lady I used to work with insisted that things must be filed in front of the tab instead of behind. Certain family members of mine chew on soft straws and tags...children often go through phases where all they'll eat are things that are orange or have ketchup on them. I'm not going to tell you what makes me weird because it's a lot weirder than the things I've already mentioned. Everybody has something odd that bothers them or they have to do, in order to maintain a level of comfort in a chaotic world.

While working the other evening I had an openly super weirdo chic come in apparently just to spread the wackadoo love. She ordered a brownie for dinner, only to tell me when I brought it to her that indeed she does not like brownies. mmmk (Take note: no sane person refuses a brownie.) Then she got very serious and asked if she could keep a steak knife from the table. say whaaa? My initial reaction was to say "yeah, NO you weirdo wackadoo. Why in the world would you want to take that knife if not to commit some hanus crime while NOT eating a brownie???" Instead I pretended it wasn't a big deal and that people ask me all the time if they can remove a potential weapon from the restuarant for free ninety nine. My manager, who I would imagine during his 10 years in restaurant management has seen and heard some pretty out there stuff, shrugged me off saying "eh just give her the knife." mmmk...

My Favorite Brownie "Recipe":

Betty Crockers Brownie Mix

1/2 cup plain low fat yogurt

2 large eggs

1/4 cup water

To prepare mix add 2 eggs, 1/4 cup of water and 1/2 cup of yogurt. NO OIL! Follow baking directions on the box and voila! Low fat delicious brownies that only the weirds will turn down.


  1. I can just picture your face while dealing with the wackadoo!! Good stuff! (And no one ASKS to take the big steak knives! They just do it. I have the whole collection). ~JJ

  2. Perhaps you should have said "that's not a brownie, it is a steak, why else would you have a steak knife"? Nothing wrong with sharing the wackadoo love. Then she would have stolen the knife because she was angry with the pretty blonde waitress!


tell me i'm not the only one!
