I'm sure we've all had strange encounters at places like fairs, parks, stores, ect, with rather confusing people. Here we can share some funny, irritating, or confusing stories. (Feel free to rant) We recently had our county fair, so of course there were some erm.. unique people. I had just walked in the parade with my 4H club, carrying my rooster. He wasn't dealing with the heat very well, so I was lingering in the poultry building (not that I wouldn't have been there anyway) when the a couple of boys about my age came in. They were looking at the dyed silkies, argueing over why they were that color. When I told them they were dyed with Kool-aid, they gave me a "yeah, whatever" response, so I was going to ignore them until they left. Then, a duck that was drinking splashed one of them, so of course they freaked out and flipped it off. They complained to someone I would assume was their mother, and she asked them if swore at it and deserved it. ( I'm sure you have about the same opinion I did at this point) It got even better when the goose started honking... (Their expressions were priceless) I calmed her down and told them that they needed to stop yelling, bacause they were scaring her. The lady stepped in front of them and said (in a rather rude tone herself) "Could ya say it a little nicer?" That was not the way to get me to be polite. I explained to her that they should know to behave, she said they're not used to animals. I said (pointing to the young club members around me) that they didn't yell at other people's animals like that. She claimed that they knew, but we only have occasional barn meetings. I tried explaining that I was on edge because someone had let one of my cockerals loose the previous night, and they interpretted it as me accusing them. She continued a petty arguement before leaving and wishing me a "pleasant day". I found it a bit odd that she would start an arguement with me (a high-schooler) for addressing a problem with the boys that hid behind her during the arguement, making rude gestures at me, while another lady with them watched. However, it was amusing. Your turn!
