Not if you're Uri Geller.

Whenever I'm getting ready to close my store, even if not one person has entered the door in 2 hours, they will all come in 2 minutes before closing and set up camp. Usually they "just want to look" and end up reading all the books and mags. (Damn you Barnes & Noble!) I usually kick them out after 5 minutes or so. They other thing is whenever I get a chance to sneak into the bathroom, people will enter the store and immediately yell, "HELLO?" as if they have to be acknowledged that second or they'll freak out, or the phone will ring. Gaaagggggghhhhhh!

When I try to hold a tiki event in Florida in September, a hurricane veers towards us and ruins my plans. Happens every time!

I always seem to choose the supermarket line in which I'm directly behind a person that has an overwhelmingly complicated transaction, often taking more than one staff employee to resolve and even in the Express lane.

I also have the Driveway Turnaround Curse, slightly different: no matter how desolate the house, if I choose their driveway, the family emerges expectantly, either all dressed up as if they were expecting a favorite guest, or they all run out as if they were hoping for an ambulance, and it's always ridiculously large families!

The bird curse: all talking parrots sound like solicitous hookers to me, when they say, "Hi", with their little high-pitched voices. Birds who have taken a vow of silence will say this to me, and their owners are shocked, and then tell me the bird hasn't said one word for years. I show up, and the parrot instantly turns into the greeting floozy, which makes me laugh, and then we keep setting each other off.

The Curse of Good Taste: show me an assortment of anything, the less I know about it the better, and if I "had" to pick one, it's always the best and/or most expensive item in the group. All I need now is the curse of too much money!

I am a weirdo magnet also. The nutters always want to be my friend. I can have long hair or short hair, wearing nice clothes or thrashers, it don't matter. They always want to talk to me. And they all seem to think I know what their ibbity-bibbity word salad is all about.
My other curse is that people think I am Johnny Weedseed. I am always aproached by strangers and asked if I know where to score them grass.

Childern...Nuts...Blinky lights? Those are blessings.

I once got stung by a carpenter bee on a island in the galapagos with not a blade of grass on it...how..why...wha the?

A tequnique I use on nuts who come up is to ask them for money...a little change to help me out...(usually tat sends them on thier way)

Some give money...but some get nasty...if that's the case then I'll roll a quarter into traffic, and laugh.

but insects...grrr

I wonder if Benzart has any issues with Walkingsticks?

I would have to say ex-girlfriends. Their memory taunts me in the night and etchs my soul with torment and pain, music is my salvation...sad music.

Chongo - got any smoke?

I am known as "De-Mech" - with the power to stop any normally working mechanical device simply by touching it.

It's not a joke to the dozens whose stuff I have handled and destroyed with my might.

Hand it to someone else or put someone else behind the wheel or give it to someone else and voila - it works - every time.

BTW, Street people talk to me ALL the time, too, but that's a blessing... keeps the perspective from getting skewed by normalcy.

So Chongo - hook a braddah up?

My curse has to be procrastination. I had to learn how to spell that right because I can't be cured. It's a bit more complicated though. I'll tell you about it later.........

Being a guy this one is extra tough to live with. I have absolutely no sense of direction, yet I always insist to the wife that I know where i'm going. I could be driving straight into the sun setting in the Pacific ocean and say "I'm heading due East, so put that map away!"

Hey Pablus!
Is the "tiki" still in check?

i have the curse of 1) bonking into anything around me since i'm a tall/wide klutz and 2) if there is any appurtenence within two feet of me, i will catch an article of clothing on it. oh yeah, an open container of liquid near me has a half-life of _when_ it will spill, not _if_ that is why i drink fast
