    Default Random conversations with strangers: had any strange ones?

    Was out at a local attraction yesterday with DH, DS1 and four week old DS2 who I had in a sling.
    A middle aged lady came over and commented on the new bub and how handy slings are at that age. We chatted for a couple of min about great slings, ones her daughter had etc then she said brightly, big smile
    "I actually have an online baby shop selling slings, all the ones I sell are rubbish though. Poorly made, don't support the baby right, awful hot fabric - total cr@p really."

    Er... That's nice?

    What random conversations have you had?

    Walking in Perth city a old man was walking parallel to me. We passed a shop that had a security guard out the front and he started talking to me about how all security guards are fat and how useless they are because there is no way they could run after a shop lifted and catch them. Then started yabbering on about how he worked as a gardener at some hospital blah blah blah. Was so weird, esp coz at the time my DH was a security guard and DH is quite fit.

    I had a stranger ask me whether or not he should take his laxatives. He was an old Chinese man. His doctor said that he should take them but his brother told him to do something else. I was like "eh?"

    I don't know what it is but I always attract the nutters at the shops. Just yesterday doing the groceries I had someone stop me and start telling me about their dialed friend in Queensland and about how her son has been cleaning windows for community service. Now it wasn't like she could just start talking to me, I had my iPad playing music in my earphones pretty loud, so she had to tap me on the shoulder to begin the conversation!

    Another time some lady decided to show my DP her feet cos they were sore and crusty in the middle of a Westfields shopping centre!

    And then this other time I had a lady stop me to ask what colour the sky was. Os she thought it was blue, but maybe her eyes were just playing tricks on her!

    I always seem to attract randoms - too many to rattle off to be honest. Some of the ones i recall now:

    - standing in line at woolworths - youngish female started telling me about her sex life with her BF.... (in extreme detail) - then followed me to the carpark and continued telling me about it.... EEUUWWW (she was harmless, thankfully)

    - When DD a baby - many would come up and tell me there opinions on raising children. OI... Old lady telling me that my 3 wheel pram will kill my child.
