I was in the car this afternoon, stopped at a light. I looked to the right and saw a couple of women walking to the bus stop t the corner. Both wore tank tops, bandannas over their hair, and pajama pants. When they reached the stop, they met up with two guys, both wearing wife beaters and... pajama pants! One of the guys had his flannel pants pulled down low enough to show off the top half of his tighty-whiteys. And, to make sure we had the best view possible of his underwear, his shirt was tucked into the waistband. Of his underwear.

While I was still reeling from the fashion disaster, they started goofing around and one guy hugged tighty-whiteys and gave him a good butt squeeze. I was about to get my camera out of my purse to at least get a group photo, but a car pulled up into the lane next to me and blocked my view completely.

Pity. It would have been a classic shot for this group.

a) "I'll have a latte with extra latte..."
b) In conservative counties, that's known as "streaking". :)
c) You were contemplating the wrong target to run over.

My "one that got away" from maybe a week ago: I was fueling up one night and this boombox on wheels pulls up to another pump. Whigger guy gets out and puts some gas in, then goes into the AM/PM to buy some snacks. Whigger chick gets out the passenger side to attend to something that's in the trunk. What I notice is that she's wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a wool cap like all the hip kiddies do and the hood is over her head, but it's a zip-up model that's open to her puffy midriff. She has these spacious chestacles and she's wearing a very low necked (as in mid-bust) top, and she's bending into the trunk at various angles. So basically she's dressed for cold weather but has two square feet of boob hanging out. Okay.

"-I've had a lot of self esteem problems lately, due to being rejected by a friend I loved for three years, my appearance being one of the issues"

That was not a friend, that was some sort of blood-sucking insect. Don't worry--it's not you: we all get one from time to time. (Where does this insect live? I've got a truck...)

Lately my rage, however, is constrained to people flicking ash and cigarettes out their windows, presumably to either keep from having to clean out their ashtray, or to hide from their "honor roll" student proclaimed on the bumpersticker from finding out that mommy is smoking again--but that's their problem. Everybody's problem is that the ENTIRE STATE IS BURNING, the air is thick and unbreathable, and while hundreds of the current wildfires can be blamed on lightning, the next hundred could easily be blamed on idiots flicking cigarettes out the window, as the dry grass gets even dryer, minute by 112 F minute.

And, of course, I never have my camera handy when they're flicking.

Speaking of smokers, I'm working at a grocery store this Summer in Williamsburg (VA) where there are a LOT of old people. Tuesdays and Thursdays are senior discount days, so pretty much every customer is old.

This one day, this ancient barely able to walk man came in with his son (or grandson, he looked pretty young, like mid 20's). Well, came in is the wrong term. The old man just had to smoke a cigar before walking in the store with his son. So he hunched right at the entrance of our store for 20 minutes smoking a cigar while his grandson just stood next to him extremely embarrassed. This cigar smoke stunk up the front end for a good hour.

///edit///

Oh, I saw a hot big girl my 1st week there. I know, everyone here hates big women (as I see in the photos here), so this part will probably be ignored. I guess there is a pool near my store because people constantly come in wearing their swimsuit cover ups, or little kids come in just wearing their bathing suits (which in this day and age seems really wrong). This one woman came in with a friend, and she was beautiful. She was big (but still smaller than me) and she was wearing a coverup underneath her bathing suit, and she looked cuter than any skinny bikni wearing woman I've seen so far this Summer.

Not all of us "hate" large women. ;-) But morbidly obese or women of any size and age who don't dress appropriately to their bodies -- folks even you will look at and think "what's up with that?" -- get the crap here. I believe you about that woman, I've seen the same.

There was this mid-20's woman in the Masters' program at my college who was very very large (I'm guessing she was one of those "glandular condition" obese cases, not lack of self-control) who always dressed very businesslike and had a great attitude and a pretty face... she was way hot.

And it's a misconception that it rains constantly and stays green on this side of the Cascades, so it can happen here too. We have those FIre Danger signs (some with Smokey Bear to enforce the message) in the wooded areas too, for a reason.

Today at the store I work at, this prissy young girl got her comeuppance today. I was outside getting carts when it happened so I didn't see it. A two liter of caffeine free Diet Coke had tipped off of a conveyor belt and exploded. It soaked this male customer and the prissy girl. All I saw was the prissy girl walking out of the parking lot cursing to somebody on the phone saying that her pants were "f*** wet" and that she was "hot". She hopped in her redneck truck and sped off. At first I was mad because I can't stand it when people pitch cursing fits in public. Then I realized that it was nothing but a stupid skinny skank and I hate them so much, especially now.

Walking through Fred Meyers doing some grocery shopping and coming my way is this 20's probably-Asian woman in one of those flowey summer print frocks. The right strap is over her shoulder fine but the left one is not, and the fabric over her A to B sized left chesticle is barely hanging on. I'm just about to pass her on my right when she tries to dig change or something out of the little pocket on that left side...

*poing!*

Now, I didn't see that puppy pop out because I was already too far forward and it would have been completely exposed to anyone who was directly ahead or further to the left, like entering the ice cream aisle. But the damn thing did come out. First time I've ever been flashed in a grocery store. I put my head down on the handle of my shopping cart and laughed.

More retail-now-I-need-therapy (and suitable for Flickr Video):

I'm wandering down the aisle at Walgreens waiting for digital pictures to complete printing (ahem, 40 minutes later they'd never started) and this woman who looked like she got her wardrobe out of the Fashion Bug dumpster is coming up the aisle with her cell phone. The conversation was as such: The woman present is telling her friend about the scandal of such-n-such guy who has herpes from such-n-such chick, which everyone thought was just "zits", gave some oral service to such-n-such pregnant chick, so now the pregnant woman is afraid for her safety and that of her baby, and then the Fashion Bug reject says the following magic words:

"Hey, I think I should take you off speakerphone..."

Trust me, this fixed nothing. She went to the next aisle and then forward so she was about four feet away from me through a wall of products, and every last detail you never wanted to know kept streaming aloud to all around.

As was the bag of hammers guy who kept coming to her to ask if the guy who was supposed to pick him up there had shown up (and had not by the time I got out of there). And I don't think you're racist for saying that, but usually the black people around here are talking about nothing at all loud (once heard someone use the phrase "kickin' it" FOUR TIMES in one sentence), not the state of friends' privates.

Thing that most annoyed me about that trip to the drugstore was that at 20 minutes, I checked to see if my photos were ready, since afterall I was the only photo/sound customer. Counter person said I had another ten minutes. I waited 15 and asked again. Oh, they hadn't even started printing yet! Three minutes after she turned the machine on, they were ready. So what was that first 35 minutes for?

I've been meaning to report this one a week but keep forgetting...

Was in a store the other day and there was this pair ahead of me, both dressed like your average 17 year old low-fashion high school drone girls, and being ahead of me I could only see their backs. I didn't think much of it until they turned to one side to go elsewhere -- that's when it became evident that they were a mother-daughter pair, and the daughter was actually dressed a little more conservatively (the shirt wasn't tight). Facially there was no way the mother could pass as anything but the girl's mother (or a gargoyle), yet she was dressed like she was the girl's skanky high school best friend. Who set the example for whom?

Recently someone on Flickr was telling an anecdote (I don't recall who or where) about how the other day a Jehovah's Witless stepped up to her and handed her an Alive! magazine from 2004, not something current. Well...

When I was coming home from Lowe's over the weekend this apartment complex at the intersection had given someone an eviction, and all their shit was kicked to the curb. There was someone rummaging through it at the time so I didn't stop. I just was at the same store a few minutes ago (they're not going to get the switch plates I need for another week or two! %#*^@!!) and a lot of stuff was still there, in two distinct piles separated by a you-build desk that had been broken up into convenient firewood-sized chunks. The first pile was kitchen stuff in boxes and bags, with some dirty laundry mixed into the bags (thaaanks!). The second pile was six boxes of...

Alive! and The Watchtower

I don't mean a bulk shipment of one issue, I mean this person had saved at least one issue every week or month, whatever their frequency is, since at least the year 2000. Plus had related books and such, with the occasional bill thrown in (like the unopened letter from the credit collection agency this guy'd been turned over for not paying on his Nissan, offering to settle his $8.5k debt for only $5k if he responds by 4/20/2007... oopsie), and I came across a notebook. Doodles, sermon notes ("Lev 17:11-14 - blood is sacred and it should not be eaten, if anyone did so they would be cut off the surface of the earth"), and a long discourse on the will of Jehovah which was either homework or a manifesto.

I figured the six boxes of religious tracts might make an amusing photo for this group but, alas, I didn't bring my camera. There were other wild moments that I wish I could have captured, like the older woman in white shorts wearing the big purple socks and orange Crocs walking her dog.

Conversation of the moment (more a Flickr Video lost shot):
I couldn't find the switchplate I want at another store or on the display at Lowe's, as mentioned, so I go to the service desk to ask if someone could check if have any in the storage over the display. Very blanched white middle-aged woman in a sundress, large proportions and no bra, comes up to the service desk in front of me and asks the counter person (wait, wasn't I waiting in line to ask her a question myself? indeed!) where the key-cutting area is. She is told. Then the counterperson turns to me and asks, "Do you have a question?" I said, "Yes... Why does she still need a key made, if she was just at the key-cutting department of Fred Meyers not ten minutes ago?" her: *blank look*

So I wasn't allowed to take a picture of this b/c I would've used flash and the family was already irritable buuut I saw the most obnoxious parking job last Wednesday.
I've seen people park in non-parking spaces on the edges, but when we pulled into a real parking space, some jackass pulled in front of us to park too. It was obvious already that he wasn't in a parking space, thusly I was making fun of him, but as I stepped out of the car, I realized that the person next to them wasn't in a parking space. Furthermore, the person next to that person wasn't in a parking space, either. There was also only about 6-7 for any traffic to pull through. Jesus, though, 3 cars in a row not in any real spaces.
I was hoping and praying that the other two would pull out and he'd be 10 feet from the last actual parking space. That didn't happen :<

The Walmart nearest my home has the health & beauty department right next to the pet department, and this store sells live fish with the aquariums on the back wall. I was going down the leftmost aisle of the pet section to get some kittylitter for my ever-excreting Cheddar.

A story especially for Dazed & aMUSEd:

I was in Costco a few hours ago with a friend and we sat down at a table to eat some pizza. At the next table which we were facing, there was a mid-30's coach-looking father and his 9th grade (give or take a year) volleyball player daughter in a coat and bluejeans. Or that's what we assume their relationship is, why the heck not. The daughter is sitting between her father and this other couple they knew from sports or something. Daughter is sitting sideways on the bench with her back to her father. I noticed that father's right hand is on his right thigh, thereby his hand is near or making contact with his girl's bottom. I point this out, and my associate says I have a dirty mind and it means nothing.

Until he picked up his hand to scratch his face, put it back down on his thigh, and his index finger goes into his daughter's back pocket.

I dropped my fork, then said "that wasn't incidental." He's carrying on the conversation with this other couple nonchalently, daughter's just sitting there. My companion's attention has now focused on them. After a few seconds the daughter unbends at the knee raising herself upward, then scoots an inch backward so now she's sitting on his right leg. My friend remarks, "she made that cozy move herself."

Probably better that I didn't have a camera with me at the time.

This morning as I was sitting in a traffic jam on I-16, I saw one of the most ridiculous bumper stickers on the back of the pickup truck in front of me, which said 'Thank You Baby Jesus For My Smokin' Hot Wife.' When I saw it, I thought that it would be perfect for this group. Luckily I had my camera in the car with me, but when I got close enough to the truck to read what its bumper sticker said, traffic started moving again. I also figured I probably wouldn't have gotten a good pic of the bumper sticker anyway because the sun was causing too much glare on my windshield.

That may be a quote from the movie Talladega Nights.

I was back at Sweet Briar (an all female college like mine, but this one is less diverse) this weekend for a conference, and while we were walking back from lunch this convertable BMW passed by with two girls in it, along with a girl on the passangers lap. Yeah that's safe.

We also saw a Lotus in the parking lot.

I'm driving down 38th Street toward the highway, and there's a disheveled man on the corner in front of Borders Books with a -huge- sign that says, YOU ARE GUILTY OF COMMITING WAR CRIMES IN YOUR MIND.

My camera was in the passenger seat but...

Three teenage Jugalos in facepaint.
Target parking lot.
In the rain, on skateboards.

I thought those were an urban myth.

The car ahead of me going through town had a license plate that read IBALTIM. Left me wondering if the driver was an optometrist or was (in three words) making an announcement about their sex life. Rain on my windshield and I was talking on my cell at the moment so couldn't snap.

I was shopping in Goodwill and this college-age woman goes by. There's something about her shorts, let me try to sneak a better look... yup, just as I thought. She's not wearing shorts. Those are Underoos, or a reasonable facsimilie, because they're well-fitting white cotton panties with a comic book cartoon (with words) printed across the butt and engulfing the crotch area. That's a first, wandering the aisles in just your underwear.

I was in St Vincent de Paul browsing through the magazines (mid-1970's hot-rodder magazines, didn't buy any because they only had maybe one interesting advertisement per issue) and an employee comes upstairs to sort some Christmas items. She's got about a 44 inch waist so when she bent over and her shirt went up it was a fairly sizeable canvas... and the trampstamp said, in large average handwriting (the quotes are hers): "Bottom" Bitch.

Well, hmm, I didn't suspect her of being a 'pitcher' but(t) still...

Ahh, well... So she was admitting she's not only a piece of ass, but the main breadwinning ho in the organization at that despite her flat chest? Got it.

Was in JCPenny's yesterday walking toward the mall entrance when this interesting family walked in. There was a late-teens girl in the group and my associate and I stood there watching the family pass and go to the escalator. The late-teen girl had the red drawstring of her hoodie wedged and dangling between her thighs... The thought crossed my mind to pull out my cell cam and queue up behind them on the escalator to get a picture of that string sticking out there, but that's a hard one to explain away.

Yeah that's not really funny.

Yup, it's sad. I figure you would have gotten the photo if you were there. ;-)

Reminded to post by Mal's adding several "they wanted people to see their boobs" photos:

So yesterday I was in the supermarket and in the cat care aisle was this woman who was wearing a C-cup bra but was beyond DD, in a scoop neck top. It was truly 50 pounds of shit in a 20 pound sack, like she had two pairs. And when she came out of the aisle she felt compelled to make some prolonged adjustment (maybe she had a cell phone in there) in front of God and everyone. She was with a skinny B-cup friend and I wondered why she borrowed her friend's bra to go to the store in.

It was probably a good thing I didn't have my cell onhand, though it's hard to explain visually (and prove anyone actually went out like this) when someone has more breast tissue puffed up outside of their bra cups than inside.

Not finding a more appropriate thread and not wanting to start a new one...

Today I was contacted by someone in one of my street photos, asking me to take it down, which I obliged. Maybe you remember the picture because it was in six groups and had probably the most views of anything I've ever snapped myself -- the guy with the terrible face and neck tattoos -- which I posted in 2006. Seems the gentleman joined Flickr in November 2014 and here in February 2015 he stumbled across his own face. He provided me with his Norwegian/Celtic username on Facebook to prove it's him, and it's definitely the same ink, which has faded a bit, though he's no longer as gaunt in the face.

First time that's ever happened with someone I didn't know (but did see in the flesh 9 years ago) in real life.
