    Should have just rejected him from the get go.

    On a serious note this is the start of an abusive relationship. Cathy if you don’t want him to sit down tell ‘em. Anything else and you’re asking for trouble.

    And this is why going to a coffee shop/book store/grocery store/etc solely for the reason of meeting someone never works. Because if the first guy is a nut, then you’re screwed. Cathy, leave now!

    Good morning, Cathy clan! It’s going to be a long day doing errands and cleaning that basement. Ugh!!

    Someone as nutty as you are Cathy! Run!

    Good morning Cathy clan! Lots of studying to do while trying to feel better. Enjoy your day!

    Notice she rejected him before she found out he was nutty! She doesn’t know what she wants.

    Happy Friday to the Cathy Clan!

    He’s not nutty, he’s honest. She could learn from someone who doesn’t play games.

    Okay, tell me if this is nutty.

    I went to the dollar store today and was in the health section. A man who looked a little older than I very politely excused himself as he walked in front of me (no big deal so far), then went up and down the aisle obviously looking for something. When he didn’t find it, he then asked me if I knew where the razors were. I didn’t, but said they could also be in the next aisle because that one said “health/beauty” also, so he went there. Soon after, I turned around and saw the razors, so I went to the next aisle, found the man, and showed him where they were. He thanked me, and looked at the razors but didn’t pick any up. He then told me that he wasn’t getting any because he wanted a close shave and cheap razors can really cut up your skin. Then he asked me if I was from around there (some warning bells went off in my head, although most of the people in Atlanta are not from here). I said “well, I live here now” (deliberately being vague) and he then tells me that he just moved here from Tennesee, after getting a divorce after 26 years of marriage, and that he thought he’d get a fresh start in another area. At that point, I felt uncomfortable, so I wished him well and moved to another aisle.

    Was that weird, or am I just suspicious? Maybe if I was young and single it would have been interesting to talk to him, but I am married (wearing a ring) and the dollar store doesn’t seem like the place to start up a friendship…

    I thought Cathy wanted to represent herself as a fabulous, available woman . . . wanting to see and be seen . . . to mingle with her destiny . . . who took all that crap with her to the coffee shop so that true love could take notice of her?!? Why can’t she just make up her mind already???


    Hi, rgcviper!


    Hi, lightenup! Hope you’re feeling okay today. Boy, that really was a weird thing to happen at the Dollar Store! Sounds like the whole encounter was just an excuse on his end to talk to you to see if you might possibly be as interested in him as he was in you. So glad that it doesn’t sound as though he was the type to follow you out into the parking lot — or to your home!


    Hello and Happy Friday to all my fellow nutty “Cathy” friends! Hope everyone has a really nice weekend!


    P.S.: Good news on the dental front! I got my 2 cavities filled, my crown removed and a temporary put on yesterday (I go back for my permanent crown in 2 weeks). The worse part of the whole thing was the needle to deaden the area (which only hurt for about 10 seconds or so). But the best part was talking to my regular dentist and finding out that, in her opinion, if I wasn’t having any pain from the infection where I had my root canal done back in 1989, then I could just take a wait-and-see approach regarding having it done again now. She said there was no real way of knowing how long I’ve had (the infection) or if it’ll ever bother me in the future but that if I DID start having headaches, sinus pain or tooth/jaw pain, to come in right away and get an antibiotic to clear it up (at which point, I would then have to make an appointment with the endodontist to get another root canal done — no putting it off any longer). So . . . YEA!!!!! I never enjoy a trip to the dentist but for once, it wasn’t quite so bad!!!!!!!!!!

    If you see that guy in the Dollar Store again – I’d turn right round and leave him there! Go back later, when he’s safely out of the way.

    I’d be wary of any man who showed such a strange fascination for razors he claimed he wasn’t going to buy.

    OK. The guy in the comic just kinda creeps me out.

    Yeah … that story is a little nutty, in a not-so-comfortable way. Happy to hear nothing bad happened.

    HI, MOM. Congratulations on your good dental news. I’m sure you’re relieved.

    Happy Friday, Clan.

    Hi Cathyites!! Time to get up and leave.
    @avtar123 — you’re right, he’s abusive. If somebody tells you they are not interested, what’s not to understand about that?
    @lightenup — Sorry you felt harrassed at the Dollar Store — be thankful he didn’t tell you why you couldn’t leave — like Cathy’s nut-job.
    @MOM — so glad you got off easy at the dentist’s office!!
