Well, I Never! Wednesday

It's "Well, I Never! Wednesday here at the Bee and Rose! (Say "Well, I Never!" with a southern sounds so much cooler!)

Well, I never
thought this would happen to me in a department store....

*So, I'm doing a little pre-holiday shopping at Home Goods on Monday and what to my wandering eyes did appear?

A miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer? An aisle full of fabulous markdowns on things I couldn't live without? Stacks of hundred dollar bills? No.....

It was a naked guy sprawled out on a white furry doggy in in not wearing a stitch of clothing....

Here's a re-cap...I was trolling the aisles for goodies....I turned to head down the pillow aisle to discover it was occupied by a Naked Guy who appeared to be a Dead Guy upon first glance. (His eyes were closed and he was very still...) After I realized he was actually breathing, I started laughing and backed myself out of the aisle. The lady at the other end of the aisle was hollering "What the blankety~blank? Why are you layin' on a dang dog bed naked, son?" We both then headed straight away to find the manager. The manager had already been made aware of the situation, but refused to call the cops. I'm still not sure why she refused. Anyhoo....another shopper called the cops. While we were waiting for them to arrive, we could hear more customers laughing as they passed the Naked Guy aisle. They also came to alert the manager.

Suddenly, Naked Guy appeared along the perimeter of the store except that he was now Stupid Pervert in a Wife Beater Tank Top and Black Gym Shorts. He looked irritated and left the store quickly. As he was leaving, the women waiting for the cops were yelling out "You Idiot! Loser! Come back when you have something worth showing!" I'm sure he wasn't pleased that he didn't provide the shock and awe he intended. Most of the women shopping at that time were my age (40+) and obviously felt he was ridiculous. Clearly, this person is very disturbed and could potentially be dangerous. That being said, I think he figured out that we weren't buying his "sexy beast" routine in the pillow aisle and decided to make a hasty exit. What a creep!

I don't know if they caught him...I do know that it will be a long time before I go back to Home Goods!

*Well, I never felt so filled with warm fuzzies as I have the last few days reading all the very kind birthday wishes left for me here! Thank you so very much! It really made my day special!

Have a delightful Wednesday! XOXO!

You need to change your title to "Laugh Out Loud Wednesday," because that story is hilarious.

I remember the first time my friends and I were "mooned" by teenaged boys passing by in a car—we were so shocked!! Now, stuff like that just makes me offer a sad little smile of pity. Sorry, guys, but we mothers have seen it all, so you might as well keep your junk in your trunk.

Happy belated b-day! What in the world would entice someone to lounge about nude in a dept. store?
carol said…
ha ha! Was he selling a birthday suit? If you had a camera you could have posted a picture. I'm sure somebody probably did snap a shot. That would have been a head turner.

Happy belated birthday chica!
babyrocasmama said…
Damn, you've got some crazies out there in the desert. LOL And I thought SoCal was bad!

Kind of sucks that it wasn't even a good show, but at least it was great blog fodder. :)
Mammatalk said…
I don't think I've ever had that kind of experience at Home Goods. What a story!
pam said…
well...that is one thing I can say in all my years of working retail, that I have never seen. And, I thought that I have seen it all!!
HAHAHA!!! Where is your camera when you need it, huh?

What a loony bird!

Happy late birthday!

Dapoppins said…
You had a birthday?

((dapoppins slaps self))

and now your 40+? That guy knew where to sleep, I think he was waiting for all the cougars. Now he knows that cougars have very discriminating tastes.

Did you get to see New Moon?

Hope things are well with you and yours. Saying a prayer that your Thanksgiving will be thankful.

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   

Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
