    This evening at work I saw a fancy, new, black range-rover pull up, and a very pregnant woman wearing only a bathrobe got out. She proceeded to wander around town, get back in and drive away.

    This was at around 7 in the evening. At that hour there are approximately 0 people in town, and the only business open is our café.

    My only possible reaction was: wtf!?

    Anyone have a wtf moment recently? :D

    Yeah...when I looked at my pay check last week...I was like "WTF...Bastards!"

    Oh gosh, so many "wtf" moments happen to me. I'm trying to remember one of them.

    Oh yeah, I was hitchhiking the other day with this girl, and we got picked up by a Ukranian guy who didn't speak english very well. When we got to where we needed to be dropped off, I pointed to the road that he should have turned into, and he keeps driving on, and i'm like "wtf?" and he's like "I stop here", and i'm like "yes you do, turn around and drop us off back there", and he's like "I stop right here", and i'm like "uh" and he's like "here, right here" and finally he pulls off the road. We had to walk a ways back to the road he should have dropped us off at, it was weird.

    I saw a guy with white power tattoos on his arm today, judging from the quality they were prison tattoos. Given that he was in Canada it's a little odd. Particularly in Banff which is very multi-cultural

    I have either stepped or gotten very close to two 5'+ chicken snakes in the past five days. The first one I didn't know about until someone told me (it was dark). The second one, however, I saw, and it elicited a response that was less "wtf!" and more "OH ****!"... :rolleyes:

    Its not so much where you are as when you are.
    I drove by the local 'cue shack and there was a pool in the parking lot. An "in-ground" pool. On the back of a truck. I have just about given up trying to figure out the things that pass in front of my house every day on trucks. 40' boats. Other houses. A 15'x15'x30' wooden box with a 8" pipe flange on the side. 50'x15'x2" sheets of steel bent into saddle shapes.

    The "Garden" state
    My second to last weekend working in a bookstore the other managers and I are doing a walkthrough of the sales floor, and we see a customer browsing our tables holding a margarita glass! We realize she wandered in from the cheesecake factory next door, and took her drink with her. Weirder still, she left us the empty glass :).
    It was my boss's last day, and she turned to us and said, "Now I can leave this store, and really feel like I've seen everything."

    So a minor wtf, but a wtf nonetheless.

    Also, once during christmas, I overheard a group of customers talking, and one was relating an activity she'd been working with some pre-schoolers on...I unfortunately missed the start of the conversation, but I walked by in time to hear "and then I had to go around asking all these 3 yr olds if they were tops or bottoms!" Crowd laughs. Nearby employees look concerned/disgusted.

    Saw a row of undercover cop cars around 4 A.M. But these just weren't unmarked police cars like those Mercury Marauders but like a Jeep Cherokee, an Excursion, a couple of marked cop cars, an Integra and an Explorer. I was thinking this was not just local police but a federal law enforcement agency. Something big was about to go down and I was the only one to see them go by because everyone else was off the streets. Thought it was a drug bust, but I end up finding out it was the SWAT team that surrounded a house that they thought an armed suspect was in, ends up he ran off long before they got there. lol. In my community SWAT teams and federal agencies are not heard of much, cuz we dont need em alot so thats why it was strange to me.

    I was in newport, RI with my friend. We were walking down the street and we look over like 3ft away and there is a guy walking his dog. The dog walks up to a tree and you know how a male dog lifts its leg and pees on a tree, well this dog walked up to the tree, sniffed it, turned its butt to it, backed up, and took a poop on the tree (it fell down to the ground though). This lady that was walking with the man said "I hope you feed him organic dog food. The dog then moves to another part of the tree and starts scratching his butt on the tree. It was hillarious.

    I have seen this a couple times, but Charlestown, RI (where our summer place is), has an amphibious vehicle. They always drive it down the highway an it goes like 15mph so there is this huge police escort around it. the guy driving it wears these bug eye googles. I don't know why they have such a vehicle, or why they drive it for no apparent reason, but it really backs up traffic.

    Its not so much where you are as when you are.
    Its a Duck probably. They used them in WWII for amphibious assaults. Now they get used for tourist operations.

    A few days ago, two neighbors in my area had a falling out. Apparently, upset by the ordeal, one of the neighbors ripped the scent things from about 20 japanese beetle traps and strategically placed them on their neighbor's bushes and trees. It was not a pretty sight. :eek:

    I've had a few of those the past week. but I think I spawned some myself. just yesterday I was walking over the moors, someone ended up by a big lake with white sand around the edge and the gentle wind making the water "wave". kicked off my shoes, sat on a rock and ate Starburst whilst the sun set.

    ALSO! went to a folk music event in some tent in Ashton. turned out the colleges mild mannered IT technician was in a band! playing guitar! like a bloomin legend too. pretty much a superhero transformation right there.

    Its not a "DUKW", its newer looking and looks more like a modern military machine. It has massive tires, a cabin in the back, with flip out windows

    Its general design looks more like this minus the giant gun and a little smaller. The design is slightly different. It also painted white and blue. I am looking around and cannot find anything like it. I see old DUKWs, new ones for Duck tours, an amphibious car, an amphibious motorcoach, but nothing like what the police has.

    Actually today, and im still confused. I woke up this morning and my cable modem was off-line. I reset it, and it still wouldn't connect. I waited a while tried again, and it connected (or so I thought). The status lights were all correct on the modem, so it was deffiently connected to my ISP, but still no internet access. I have a VOIP adapter, which refused to connect, and my Router couldn't connect either. I tried every combination I could, I plugged the VOIP adapter directly into the modem, and the adapter just blinked at me and refused to connect, same with the router. I hooked the modem up directly to my MAC, and my PC and couldn't get either of them online. I reset all the componets a bazillion times (yes in the right order), it just wouldn't work, and I couldn't call tech support cause we have Vonage. :( The whole thing just made no sense to me since the modem was connected, there couldn't possibly be a problem with both of my computers, my VOIP adapter, and my router. So anyway, I finally got a cell phone, called tech support, we hooked the modem up directly to my PC, and he had me re-install my NIC drivers. The PC connected to the internet with no problem. I unhooked everthing and plugged the VOIP adapter, and router back in and eveything connected and has been fine since. WTF?? I still can't figure it out. There's no way that re-installing the NIC drivers on my PC fixed the problem when I couldn't get the Mac, VOIP Adapter, or router to connect. Personally I think he changed a setting on his end and didn't tell me. If anyone else has a good explination I'de love to hear it cause im still confused. I mean I was trying to get it to work all day, at least 7-8 hours, what are the odds it would magically fix it self while I was talking to him.

    Wow that was a bit wordy wasn't it? :) Congrats if you made it this far.

    Well, this belongs to my parents, but... they were sleeping, and heard a huge crash. Went outside.
    Our neighbor's ex-wife, who he had a restraining order against, had gone back drunk and driven right through the freakin' garage door.

    My parents were driving through the countryside and ran into a reindeer. Considering they're not native to Australia and it was the height of summer (about 45°C or so), they thought it was strange.

    Thankfully the reindeer was fine and Father Christmas still visits us, on occasion. :cool:

    Seen a couple of strange things today:

    on the mancunian way (a very busy road that takes us across Manchester) there was a train of 5 plolice bikes escorting a train of 5 black volvo undercover police cars followed by another 5 police bikes. The volvo's had blue lights in the grilles and part of the headlights.

    Then.... we were driving down foundry street, and there's a 13 storey building witha guy dressed as superman dangling down from the top. Lots of workmen eating their lunch and watching him struggling from falling.
