Can you believe this?
So I want to talk about what happened this past weekend. I went to my kid’s Saturday morning sports class and it’s always great, the kids love the class & the parents are fun to talk with. There is one dad there who is odd though, he says weird stuff each week. I try to keep my distance, but he always comes over and says inappropriate things. Here are a few examples of what he’s said over the past few months and then I’ll get to what happened on Saturday.
A bunch of parents were standing around chatting and a mom looked at another mom’s breasts and said “Wow, your breasts are huge.” The mom with the giant breasts was a nursing mom. She was also a dentist, but that doesn’t really matter. Anyhow, it was awkward and we laughed together until the inappropriate guy added this “They really are enormous”.
Then there was the time he told me in great detail about the diarrhea he had all week.
Then the time he told me all his wife does is tweeze her eyebrows. That she’s sort of obsessed and can be found in her room each night in front of her vanity mirror. He told me all about the mirror and how it’s changes colors so she can see what her brows look like in “dim” light, “outdoor” light and “party” light.
I knew there was something wrong with him, but this past Saturday he really confused me.
“Hey, I’m going to be growing a big garden this upcoming season and plan on planting lots of veggies”. Yes, he said veggies. “Do you like green beans? I’m going to grow hundreds of green beans and give you as many as you want all season”.
Look, I’ve had it with this guy. What is he talking about? This green bean conversation felt dirty.
Then he changed the subject to this:
He told me he’s in search of a Ground Round type restaurant, an old fashioned place where there are peanuts all over the floor. He said we should have a couple’s night out at a Ground Round. I told him I’m allergic to nuts.
Class ended about 5 minutes after that. What can I do to get this guy to stop telling me his stories?
