Apparently, He Has A Problem With Rejection

*warning* stress-induced run-on sentences ahead

So. I'm in a beautiful huge warehouse showroom of gorgeous china and collectibles, glassware, silverware and a Christmas in July sale, marveling at the thousands of china sets and one-of-a-kind pieces in this remarkable presentation. It was heaven! (Please forgive the pictures. I forgot my good camera this time and only had my cellphone.)
Silver Copper Epergnes for $29,999
wine glasses for 7,999

 Lenox china!

for $19.99 ~ more my style
blue on silver and gold that appears to be encased in a coffin... I'll pass, thank you very much

 carnival glass

I was happy to come out with a 7.99 vegetable bowl I found in the bargain bin that matched a pattern I am collecting.

When out of the blue
this humongous tall straaaaaange guy who looked a lot like Igor The Giant shows up right beside my person. RIGHT in my space, ya know? Like he was my date or something and owned all my thoughts. (Freudian slip) I froze. There was another person with him on the other side of me. Where did they come from? How can two giants sneak up on a person's person? I looked up at him. I looked down. I looked away. I move or do I scream....And then he said from On High (high being the operative word)

 "Where do you think they get all these dishes? Are they donated?
 Do they buy them?" 
Thinking and hoping he was just thinking out loud or talking to the other guy, I moved away and turned my back to him just to get him out my space because the space we were in was very confined and we were surrounded by expensive breakable china which was my only weapon except the beach bag on my shoulder that still had a tall canister of SPF110 for my delicate Queen skin that might come in handy if he's looking to block his tan.
The other guy didn't answer him.

Apparently, he had a problem with rejection.

"Hey! Hey Lady!" he angrily shouted, "Do you knoooow where they get these dishes???!!!"  He's talking to ME? Yelling at me? Since when do you slimy up beside a complete stranger and start asking questions like that? Any question?

Far enough away to safely throw this tureen on his head, I looked at him like he'd lost his brain and shouted, 


 "THANK YOU!!!!"
"You're welcome!!!!!!"

Can you believe people?

What a strange SHOUTY man!

Red Shoes said...


Maybe he was just trying to start a conversation... :oD


Randy said...

I'll take a set of the Lenox China please, also fits my budget more. Do you deliver?

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - He was so strange. I mean really strange. It brought out the shout in me. Better to act like I'm not afraid than to let him squish me like a bug.

Mimi Lenox said...

Red - Hello would have been better.

Mimi Lenox said...

Randy - Yes, but there is a delivery fee.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Hee hee, I love your stories and your writing, Mimi!

Mimi Lenox said...

Hi Sherry! - Glad I could entertain you today!

Mimi Lenox said...

Coop - People never fail to amaze me. But I don't think he expected me to shout back.

Travis Cody said...

Creepy guy.

Mimi Lenox said...

Trav - You can say that again.
