When Out And About, Do You Ever Meet Unusual People?

Honestly, l don’t deliberately go out on a normal day to meet ‘Unusual’ people but for some reason, l always do!
So there l was, panicking because l couldn’t find my credit card in my bag after making a purchase. I needed it to return an electric toothbrush which was unsuitable.

It was only when l tried to pay for another purchase that l found my credit card wasn’t in my bag.
Leaving the shop in a shopping mall, l headed for a seat so l could search my bag for the card.

There was one seat left next to a man and l started to rummage.
Next thing, he starts to talk. He was killing time after dropping off his daughter who was a PE teacher who had an injury and couldn’t drive. If she missed this examination she was adjudicating, she would lose her £500 fee.

Next, he was telling me about his brother who had worked with Asbestos and died. His wife used his compensation to buy three houses and was renting them out, she was currently jumping from island to island in Antigua.
Their son was killed in a car accident caused by a traveller running him off the road and his girlfriend had no memory since.
This is all being told to me whilst l was taking my shopping bag apart looking for my credit card!
He told me he was 72, divorced, lived in a four bed house and had lots of girlfriends but they were grasping for his money!
He was a joker and said, he’d been a comedian under the name of Richard Scratcher. He then winked and said, ‘What’s short for Richard?’
Honestly, you couldn’t make it up! Plus, l still couldn’t find my credit card which l found in my other coat at home.

Do you meet ‘unusual’ people like this on a normal day in your town?

At this stage, it's probably best to walk on by when a bench is available, for the sake of everyone's sanity.

Cinderella, l have just googled him. He was a character and how nice to be remembered by so many.
I suppose, many of us are ‘no marks’, we die and leave no impression or lasting memories to the masses.

That may be a deliberate choice.
