Have you ever been approached by someone when out grocery shopping, or in a mall, or anywhere that you don't want to talk to? Yes of course you have, we all have. Today I finally figured out how to get people to leave me alone. Finally!
A couple years ago I was being recruited into Scientology by some folks who work in the industry for a well known celeb who is mad into it. It wasn't my thing, but at the time when I was approached by religious fanatics I would replay with a quote from Hubbard and that usually shut them up. And for added bonus it was funny. That said, it still didn't work in all situations.
Today I was at the grocery store and it's hotter than hell out so when I exited, I wanted to get to my car as quickly as possible. I accidently cut of a man and his son. I have to elaborate, an African American man and his son-it was an accident. My phone beeped and so I was looking down while exiting the store-Annoying I know, sorry but it had to be done.
I said, "oh sorry, excuse me" and the man turned around with anger from 200 years. He started in on me being white and him black and this is why I cut him off. I apologized to him again and he said, "so why say you are sorry if not because I am black?" I said, "because you are human." and that's when the idea hit me.. human.. I'm human he is a human, human = Earthling. He kept on and I said, "what do you mean by black?"
He looked at me like I was from another planet! (ha!) He said, "what!!? Are you stupid?" I replied, "I don't know what you mean by black, I am not from here."
He said "where are you from Mars?" looking to his son as he chuckled. I then laughed and said, "no that would be silly life can't survive on Mars." He said, "so you mean you aren't from California?" I said, "no I am not from this planet....Earth." He looked at me then grabbed his son and walked as fast as he could away from me.
Hahaha!!! It worked!!
