A couple of people...
Random observations of people...
This first one, could be one of my WTFs, but we'll give her a pass. There's a woman that I've seen a few times who runs around Burns Park for exercise. No big deal right? Ok, here the thing, first of all, she's usually running in nice clothes. I wouldn't call them business clothes, but I'd say that they are on the same level as khakis and a polo for guys. Everytime I see her I think, go to the store and buy some sweatpants and a t-shirt! The other odd thing she does, is that she runs her path, no matter what. I've seen her run though the middle of a group of people, two people playing catch with a baseball, and the shallow part of the outfield (like 2 feet from the infield) of a little league baseball game repeatedly. Do you ever see someone and think to yourself, "they just don't get it"? This woman doesn't get it.
People on my 8am are weird (that's why I fit in, right?). So, a few blogs below this, you can read about the smokies that ride that bus. Well, there's also the most anal-retentive guy on this bus too. He gets to the bus stop at about the same time I do, maybe like 2-3 minutes before the bus comes. Most people, around the busstop, kind of just hang out. They sit on the bench, lean up against the shelter, stand around. This guy makes sure to stand front and center to where the bus is going to pull up, and everyday he stands there with his hands behind his back, with his bag in his hands, and constantly looks around himself. I don't know if he thinks someone is going to come up and push him into traffic or if he's just looking to see if anyone is laughing at him (oh, we are laughing). OK, so we get on the bus, ride, blah blah blah, then he gets off the bus at the same stop as me. As soon as we go by the stop prior to mine, without fail, he pulls the cord for the stop request, then walks to the font of the bus, even if he's closer the to back exit, and stands right at the door, ready to exit. He's one of those people that just make you nervous... he makes you feel like you're going to miss your stop if you don't get ready too!
Anyway, maybe you had to be there, but that's just my obversation of a couple of people.
