Some days are great, others are not...but no matter what twists and turns I encounter, you can be sure I'm going to write about it!

Mullets and Pay it Forwards!!!

The people watching in Minnesota can be exquisite. The best locations for watching all sorts of silly folk come out of the woodwork are: The Mall of America, The Minnesota State Fair, and the Como Zoo. I'm almost certain Como attracts the professionally cut mullets and unnecessary spandex because of the fact that it's free.
This past weekend, the PSIL (pseudo sister in law) and I decided to take the kids to Como. Our reasons were simple: It was free, the kids LOVE animals, and it was a heck of a lot more entertaining to walk around the zoo than sit at home and break up never ending fights between little man and Bop(my niece). Before we left, PSIL received a phone call from a lady she refers to as Grandma (note: she is not related to Grandma. Rather, this lady was her neighbor's mother when PSIL was little. Not that it matters, but Grandma is about 68-ish). Grandma wanted to take Bop to the zoo..and instead of telling PSIL telling her we already had plans, she invited Grandma & Co. to join us. Did I mention that I am totally PMS-ing right now?
For about forty five minutes PSIL, myself and the kids walked around the zoo. It was enjoyable. I was managing to keep myself collected while the crowds of people swarmed. Then PSIL got the call. Grandma & Co. had arrived at the zoo.
Now, I'm not SUPER shallow. I try my best not to be judgemental. Let me just say for the record there was a TON of EXTREMELY inappropriate spandex involved with Grandma & Co. They were the people I would normally catch out in public and think to myself "seriously, what were they thinking!"
My mood spontaneously shifted from "I'm surviving the zoo" to "Get me the hell out of here!"
Needless to say, I might politely decline another trip out with Grandma & Co. PMS or not...it was still too much for me to handle...and now, I've just received a one way ticket to hell, courtesy of my horrible thoughts!
I'm not sure if you've ever heard of a blog Pay it Forward...but I have reluctantly decided to participate (especially since I intend on entering EVERY contest possible because I am a whore for free stuff!!). Here's how you're going to play my "contest".
First: leave a comment about a time you've noticed someone completely inappropriate in public. If that's too much to handle, just leave a comment saying hi.
Second: the contest ends on Friday, July 4th at noon my time (central time). I will use a random number generator to pick the winner....a package of surprises will be mailed out.
FIY: if you DO win you need to post and participate in a pay it forward contest of your own!!! Yeah, that's right bizzo's...it's time to Pay it Forward...just like that annoying lovely little movie with that kid from the Sixth Sense :)

  3. This story comes from my husband.

    He was watching a security camera feed at the hotel he worked at. An old man was standing in the lobby waiting for the elevators, when Hubs notices him shaking something out of his pant leg. It turns out the gentleman crapped his pantaloons and shook the poops out onto the floor. Someone then walked by with a rolling suitcase and rolled right over said crap.

  4. Yesterday at the beach. Middle aged, very fit woman with a YELLOW THONG bathing suit. It looked like a banana in her behind. Blech!

  5. Men driving around shirtless. 'Nuff said!

  6. Okay, parkingathome's poop story has made me laugh so hard it drove all other thoughts out of my head.

    So, HI! That's all I got. :)

  7. Totally inappropriate man was in a bar we frequented in Univeristy. You could watch him move through the crowd soley by the reactions of the girls he groped as he moved through. It was so crowded, people were wall to wall and he would walk around with his hand at crotch level getting a free feel. Girls heads would whip around looking for the guy and you could follow him just by that. Luckily the bouncers clued in and turfed the sicko.

  8. Saw a guy lying on his back with his eyes closed at the beach right at the point where the waves would lap at your feet if you were walking. He had a serious hard-on going.

  9. not exactly the same thing, but leaving a derby party a few years ago we saw two people so drunk they couldn't step over a string that was about a foot off the ground. it was so funny my entire family was on the floor in stiches just laughing at them.

  11. During my most recent water park visit, I was horrified to see how many people had their hands down the backs of each other's swimsuits. Ew!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Apparently the kid a few pews in front of me at church had an itch he had to scratch. On his bum. Several times. Like he didn't realize he was in the middle of church and everyone behind him had to watch him scratch and pick.

  13. I live in a college town. It looks like several girls are paying their way through college by sharing their assets on stages at night. They apparently like to wear their work clothes everywhere.
    I like free stuff.

  14. I love the Fair. In fact, I'm making every effort to get there this year just for the people watching. And the cookies from Sweet Martha's Cookie Jar!

    My favorite inappropriate moment was the 2 year old I saw in black leather pants and a leopard print tank top. Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Last time I was at TJ Maxx I saw a woman in head to toe leopard print. A leopard print fur coat, leggings, and hat. Yikers.

    ReplyDelete
  16. You mean like when my four year old peed in church yesterday? Right there on the carpet? But he didn't really mean to do that, it was just an accident.

    I also love the very large busted women who wear bikinis. God bless them.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Women in pants that give them muffin tops and expose their thongs. It's just too much for me. EVERY TIME!

    ReplyDelete
  18. At a park in Austin, we saw a guy walking a bike and wearing nothing but a silver lame thong. That's it. I wanted to gouge out my eye.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hellllooooo!
    How about the time I saw a girl going down on a guy in a club. GET A ROOM!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ummm this lady walked up to me at a bar I was singing in. We were in the ladies room. She said "Yanno, I wanted to tell you all night.. You have REALLY nice BEWBS".... Ran... Away... QUICKLY.

  21. Last year at the State Fair, Matt and I were watching the lumberjack show. An old old old woman wandered up to the front, near the stage with the chainsaws and other miscellaneous dangerous objects. She took the microphone away from the announcer and said something incoherent. It sounded like she told the lumberjacks to be careful.

    She was escorted back to her seat and the show continued. She interrupted the show 2 more times, and was finally escorted away from the show. Crazy lady.

  22. Sorry, I've got nothing right now.

  23. I've got nothing. Maybe I purposely blocked it all out. But hi!

  24. Some of these are great stories! I think the most inappropriate things I see are usually up at the mall. Like these little teenyboppers in shorts so short their a$$ cheeks were hanging out. Don't you think you would want that covered???

  26. I once had the misfortune of seeing a very leathery tan (and somewhat overweight)older man in a gold lamé thong on Waikiki beach....
    I try not to remember, but my treacherous mind tends to regurgitate the memory into my consciousness at least once a year.... shudder

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hah! Isn't the world full of over-abundant inappropriateness? DANG!

    So this is all I've got:
    I once saw an old guy at a gas station who totally crapped his pants everywhere and went about his business of pumping his gas and climbed back into his car. Eewww!

    Also, how about teenagers who still walk around with pacifiers in their mouths?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love people watching so I'm going to have to pick just one inappropriate in public story...

    OH MAH GAH! YES! Driving through no-where Texas, we stopped at a Walmart for pillows (sleeping in the car, neck cramps, whining children... you get the picture) at about 1AM. We see an old woman with fuzzy old lady chin hair. She has more hair on her chin than her head. She's riding one of those handicapped carts because her size probably made walking painful. And she is wearing a terry cloth tube top. As rolled past us I look back to see that the woman has the most phenomenal BACK CLEAVAGE! *shudders*

  29. Sorry, that's usually my kids behaving inappropriately in public. I try to curb that, but I'm not that good of a mom. Besides, when you have to pee, you have to...
    ...nevermind.

    Hi from Rochester!

  30. A MINNESOTAN! WHEE!

    I'm trying to think of inappropriate things I've SEEN, but I keep thinking of inappropriate things I've DONE.

    I once let one of the bars in college hang my BRA ON THE WALL. True story.

    Um. Why am I over here being all CRAZY? Sorry. I'm not actually. Crazy.

    I'd better win now! DAMN!

  31. Like just yesterday walking out of the Target a little teen wearing what I think was a bath towel and that's it. Why is everybody nekkid? It's hot out, but there are PEOPLE around.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yesterday I was walking home and was bypassed two midgets, riding tandem on a scooter-style wheelchair. I felt like maybe I was in a movie?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Every time I go anywhere, I see young teenagers in grossly inappropriate chlothing. I can't stand the stupid "sexy" slogans on tee shirts these days. At least, I can't stand them on minors.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Emblita: Shuddering with ya!
    Laura: Oh Mah Gah!
    SP: Maybe she should be informed of the Bro for Backs...or a good pair-o-spanx!

  40. I recently saw a woman with a giant hole in the middle of the ass of her shorts.

    And she had on NO UNDERWEAR.

    Personally, I was glad to see it. FREE BLOG POST! Thanks holey lady!

  41. How about the time I saw a girl giving a blow job at an outdoor concert? No amount of alcohol prepared me for that train wreck!

    ReplyDelete
  42. how about the girl we saw last summer riding the back of her boyfriend?'s motorcycle wearing a tank top and thong?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I don't think I can top any of these, so HI :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. The woman shopping for baby clothes for her teenage daughter who did NOT have on a bra(and did she ever NEED one!) and also had possibly never met a bathtub in her entire life. It was AWFUL.

    Gack.

  45. I always laugh when I see people driving and picking their noses. Old men are normally the culprits!

  51. Parents who come in for parent/teacher conferences (I'm a teacher in real life) with a mohawk or in their pajamas. I mean how hard is it to slip on jeans and a t-shirt??

    Thanks for the contest!

  52. There was a little bit of action at the beach yesterday near the bathrooms...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hey there - entering your contest, and loving the blog!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think the beach has a lot of inappropriate dressers. Women wearing bikinis that shouldn't be, men wearing speedos that shouldn't be {ever}

    ReplyDelete
  55. I work at a high school, so lets just say that I see inappropriate dress every day. My particular fave was the FCUK shirt with the girl in the thong bent over, head between her legs. On a freshman. NIIIIICE.

    ReplyDelete
  56. We posted about mullets this week too!

    Hmmm, inappropriate in public? Where to start? Just this morning 2 people north of 40, she in a business suit, were making out in my coffee shop as I was trying to enjoy my latte. Affair? I don't know but they really needed to get a room as I was a little scared as to what they were going to do next.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Goodness, where to start? A man sunning in public park in an extremely skimpy neon orange thong. I think that will do.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Maybe not inappropriate, but funny anyway. My husband just told me that a friend of his snapped a picture of a guy in a restaurant. He was at Subway at lunch time, at a table, with a laptop...and a laser printer!
