Good ol' real life Random Encounters thread?Hell yes
All I've got, /tg/.
>>41519516I got one from my vacation in Germany>I was touring Germany, and I was in Berlin killing some time before my flight back>So I'm sitting at some cheap cafe-thing by Zoologischer Garten having some cofee>and some bloke sits down in front of me looking side to side nervously>He was slightly pudgy, not really fat, and had a pair of aviator shades and a suitcase>I'm not really sure if he's a nutter or a hobo or whatever, so I just ignore him>after a minute or two he speaks>"Have you found out where the target is?" (in German of course)>I reply in my somewhat broken German "Yes, we have confirmed that he's currently in Leipzig travelling to Weimar">I don't know why I said anything, I just spewed some bullshit>"He has a reservation at hotel Elephant, he'll arrive in a few hours">He nods solemnly and mutters "Danke" before walking awayThe whole thing took like 2 minutes, he was probably just some loonie and I should have just ignored him
Happened a year or two ago>Walking by the train station>huge new building with mirror glass>Some hobo is busting some sweet moves in front of that>Not really dancing tho, just making random gestures, like chasing flies away>Must be drunk as fuck>Have to walk past him>no smell of alcohol or smoke>Suddenly stops moving and speaks to me>"Look man, LOOK! Can you see her?">amused, I look at the glass>I seem yself and the crazy hobo>Sounds normal>"LOOK AT HER! LOOK!">Ok Gandalf, you can stop no->Looking closely, I can see another silhouette>Wtf>It indeed looks like a woman>"SHE EXTENDS HER HAND TO ANOTHER WORLD, BUT I CAN'T FIND THE BREACH">Gandalf goes back to Billie Jeaning while I go on my merry wayTurns out the glass is kinda transparent and that there was a poster for some bottled water. If you looked closely, you could actually see a girl offering you a bottle.
>>41520206the water is life
> Be at friend's birthday party, booked out a bar in a town near where I live.> End of the night, standing outside waiting for a taxi> This old gypsy-looking lady walks up to me> Without speaking, pulls out a single rose from under her shawl and offers it to me> I assume she wants money, but all I've got left is to pay for the taxi, so I decline as politely as I can in my rather-drunk state> She says nothing and walks away.And that's how I got my gypsy curse.
>>41520321I heard something like this, except if you do take it they force a bracelet onto you and then demand to be paid for it.
>>41519516Who the hell is Gropey?

>Go to sex club.>Really hot guy starts following me around, giving me signals he's dtf>Close the deal, take him to some place secluded in the club for the smashing about to be undertaken.>About halfway through fucking this guy, he starts calling me daddy. Not my thing, but what gets you off gets you off.>Voice starts getting super high pitched, and it's then that I realize he's talking to me in baby talk>I'm positive this guy's older than me by at least five years, adds onto the wtf factor.>Starts talking about how momma is gonna be mad when she finds out I fucked her precious little boy, teacher's gonna wonder why he's walking so funny.>Completely freaked out. Wanna get off this crazy train but the conductor keeps spamming me back every time I try to get off at the station.And that's how I got raped by some dude with an infantilism fetish.

>>41521960Nails are iron, couldn't have been fey
>>41521880>>41521907It sounds like he was trying to leave at the end but the guy wouldn't let him so yeah. That was rape.
>>41522043That's true, what could it be then to enjoy those "no good deed" scenarios.
>>41522083vengeful ghost? Immigrant Oni?
>>41522114Maybe a hitchhiker ghost?
>>41521281Why would you want to LARP as a gypsy?
>>41519516>ride a train to visit relatives, to the middle of nowhere>sleep through most of the way>at my stop notice weedy 2 grannies, well over 70, in full biking gear - gloves, bike shirts and all - struggling to get a bike out of the wagon>offer to lent them a hand, get it to the platform, then the other bike>"Oh, thank ye, boy!" (I'm in early 30's)>"No problem.">Start walking away.>Something zips around me.>Grannies pedal to the horizon at the speed that would put Tour De France participants to shame>Pull my mobile, schedule myself more jogging.>I've been visited by the spirits of cardio.
>>41522226No no no. He's ethnicly Roma. He's also an IRL circus performer and possible champion of Slaanesh.

>>41522383I don think your "friends" really like you if they didn't notice anon. Probably because you're the sort of weirdo who does that kind of shit.
>>41522654everyone was really fucking drunk, I'm surprised I was able to even get out of the window let alone get onto the roof
>>41522235Man I have some pretty mundane shit like that, I bike every day 20km to work and the only bikers faster than me are old as shit.Still on old people topic>in the tramway>alone in the wagon>short, sleeveless tshirt because scortching hot summer>old woman in a wheelchair enters>without needing any help>full sport gear>looks tough as fuck but doesn't seem to have lots of muscles even in the arms >Jacques Brel blasting in hearphones so loud the whole tramway can hear it>gets out at the third or fourth stop after>she says "you don't look weak boy, keep it up">I see her racing on the sidewalk with her wheelchair before the tram turns
2005, Al-Dora Power Plant, Southern Baghdad. I am a 27 year old Sergeant in the US Army. I am at the main entrance bunker on guard duty, late afternoon. Still hot as fuck. An Iraqi street sweeper, wearing a bright orange jump suit denoting his trade walks up to us and is pointing at a nearby bridge that goes over 4 sets of train tracks about 200 meters away. "Mister there is boom" he gestures toward the bridge. A US Military Police platoon is leaving the adjacent Iraqi Police precinct compound. I wave them over as the they likely have an interpreter with them. They do and the 'terp talks briefly with the street sweeper cofirming he found a bomb whilst street sweeping. The MPs call in for a Explosive Ordnance Disposal team from Forward Operating Base Falcon. A Navy EOD team comes in and uses their Talon 2 robot to find an Improvised Expolsive Device. of two 155mm HE artillery shells rigged to a positive and negative command wire. When the circuit is complete, boom. That means someone was likely watching. They blow it in place. The explosion is fucking huge. We never see that street sweeper again. I sometimes wonder if he was pressured by ba'athists or jihadists to plant the bomb but didn't want any one to get hurt. Or maybe he was legit. r He could have gotten himself killed just seen talking to us.
>>41520112You probably are responsible for him killing a guy. Good going Anon.
>>41521810>he's the r9k equivalent of batman>"thanks for saving me">"y-you too"I'm totalling going to steal this for my next gurps session

>>41525110>on my way comeWay home, fuck me.
>>41519516I met a german soldier called funky kaiser during the nijmegen marches. does that count?
>Flashback to a few years ago >attend a week long music festival with the family>multiple stages in every direction, music playing all day every day without stop>crowds of people amassed and entranced by their genres of choice>Day One>mucking about, just sort of walking around the farthest outskirts of the fest>whole place is full of hippies and the entirety of the grounds smells like pot>hippies offer to smoke pot with me, to which I accept>introduce myself and get friendly with them>"Hey anon, you down for a game of Magic:the Gathering™?">of course hippies play magic>have a blast with them for the remainder of the day>Day Two>venture into the thick of it>see strange and wonderous works of artifice like a dune buggy made of lights>come across a woman soldering something, I'm into electrical so I'm interested>Hi there, what's that you're working on?>"Working on a blacklight LED strand, just about done.">I'll give you $20 for it.>"Alright.">BARTER: +2>find a place to sit away from all these fucking people>holy these lights are like 20ft long>won't fit in my pockets>I'll just wrap it around my arm>it's getting dark so decide to go back to my tent>all the hippies are staring at me in fascination>retire for the night(1/2)

Now I can sort of empathize with crazed cult leaders, these god damned people wouldn't leave me alone.
>>41521605"I've only been here a month"
>Walking to university.>Some guy approaches, claims he's homeless despite wearing immaculate clothing and appearing well-fed, life is hard, need money for a ride home.>Give him a pound and some tic-tacs.>He looks solemnly at my offering, then says, "Tell you what mate, I'll give you back these tic-tacs, but what I really need is £25">No>"Well could you go get it?">No, walk away>At least I kept my tic-tacs.
When I was a senior in high school, I would take regular walks through the woods in the middle of the night, alone. I was one of those kids.Now, these woods had odd things in them- Rusted out old cars, strange bits of carved wood, and what I can only describe as a hobo altar. (pic related). For the most part, it was only ever stuff people left behind, and everything was pretty quiet.This night was different. While I was tromping around, I started noticing firelight coming through the trees and voices chanting in a language I couldn't place. Not wanting to get into a fight with a bunch of meth-addled hobos, I snuck up to the clearing they were in and peeked in from behind a tree.Well, it wasn't hobos. It was a bunch of half-naked people wearing body paint and honest-to-god animal skins. Unsurprisingly, they were dancing around a bonfire while doing their chant. (cont)
>>41528234The surprising bit was that I recognized one of the girls. I'd had a huge crush on her at the time. Well, here she was- Topless, wearing red paint in swirly pseudo-celtic patterns, and had what I thought was a lynx pelt over her shoulders. Hollering along just like the rest of them.I'd like to say that I stepped out and wound up being initiated into whatever crazy old-gods worshipping cult they were in and that I killed a bear with my hands and my crush and I had many strong children to continue our fine barbarian ways, but I wasn't that sort of kid. I just mouthed 'what the fuck' to myself, gawked (partially because weird ritual, partly because topless highschool crush), and then left. I swear she and I made eye contact at one point, if only very briefly. She never said anything about it, and I never asked, but I never found them in the woods again.
>>41528234>>41528253Random encounters that never happened except in your mind anon.
>be me>be in Kirkuk, Iraq>be sometime around dusk>suddenly 5 men run past my squad screaming their brains out, don't respond to orders and don't stop>shrug it off>20 seconds later another dude, stripped to a loincloth, wielding a cricket paddle sprints into the area yelling>later told he was saying something like "death to men who lay with another woman's wife, it is forbidden (by the Quran)!" but all I heard was "death to" and "haram" so we were all pumped up and ready for anything>he runs right past us>less than a minute later the five guys who ran past us earlier show up again>then half-naked cricket pro shows up and begins beating the everloving shit out of the other five guys>like a goddamn hero of legend, just wailing on these five guys like it ain't no thing>finishes, cricket bat is wrecked, five guys are wrecked>he turns to stare at us. we stare at him>everyone nods respectfully>he walks off into the night>we radio for medics for the five guys who got haram'd
>>41529845>Brian Williams was there
>with my group adventuring through downtown LA at 1am>a traveling merchant approaches us trying to sell his wares>my experience has taught me that traveling merchants often have hard to obtain items>traveling melanin enriched fellow "acquired" a very expensive jacket from a Nordstroms in Santa Monica >tells me he'll sell it at a good price>trade the skooma using merchant 20 gold for the 150 gold jacket
>Walking through woods>Snake bites leg>Barely gets through pants>Overreact and punch snake directly into the ground>Break it's spine >Snake half writhing in panic and pain>Adrenaline instantly disappears and guilt sets in>Mercy kill it and spend rest of day making a raft out of sticks and twine>Give it a viking funeral into the swampI still feel bad because it was probably just scared, but on the other hand the rules of nature are pretty clear that if you bite something it has the right to kill you.There was also the time me and some friends got lost in detroit at 3am on halloween and I was wandering around shirtless wearing a gasmask, fairy wings, and two bandoleers of energy drinks. Silently handing them to anyone we found and then disappearing into the night.But that probably counts as someone else's encounter not mine.
>>41529845This floored me.
>>41529845>be meNo shit. So fucking inane.
>Early 90's>Riding my bike with some friends>We're in an area a few blocks away from our neighborhood that the city had started to develop>laid down streets and deforested the lots, put down a few foundations and then abandoned the area>Everything is overgrown, great hangout spot>So just riding around after school, enjoying the freedom before internet sucked out all our souls>Suddenly hear "HEY COCKSUCKERS!" >Sounds like a parrot>Look around>There's a guy in a pristine grey business suit wearing 80's wrap around sunglasses and holding one of those rainmaker sticks with a parrot riding his shoulder>No cars anywhere to be seen>Where the fuck did he come from?!>He's walking towards us>Not saying a fucking thing, just a big creepy smile>We got the fuck out of there>Never saw him again
Gropey doesn't namefag that often. Generally only when he is in one of these kinds of threads, or he has a particularly relevant life experience to share.I find his stories fucking hilarious, and a part of me likes having a name to link them together, rather than just a scatter of random anon stories.
>>41529845Ah, war stories. Some of the funniest and most depressing tales come from them.
>>41530432Yeah I have a ton of them, but this thread is specifically about real world random encounters. This is still the single most random encounter I've ever had in my life.Those of us who were there refer to the dude as "Batman."
>>41529957"I got ripped off by a bootleg clothing salesman" is a random encounter now?
>>41524719If anything, he saved a man's life. He didn't give the guy a name or description, so he probably already had somebody in mind.
Tales from the Melbourne Tram1/2>guy with a t-shirt with an ss troop and a map of occupied poland on it with the words 'Good Job Boys, Keep Up the Work.' and dried blood on his face walks up to me.>remain quiet and avoid eye contact, for this man has probably killed someone.>goes on a boomhauer-esque rant vaguely about stabbing aboriginies and muh german ancestry, then suddenly leaves.>end ride fearing for life.2/2>Crazy hobo espouses interesting theories.>Claims the gays are/have turned all of Australian males into pedophiles.>'That's 12 Million SICK FARKS!'>'Ancient Egyptians got wiped out because they became sexually attracted to fucking shit. I am not making this up.">Try to stifle laughter so as to avoid revealing myself as the gay illuminati.
> Be 11 years old> Walking with my friends> See a grannie siting in front of a house> We look at her> She look at us and says: "Why are you running ?"> Wtf.jpg> Friend says: "We are not running."> Grannie pull a knife from her bag and point it at us> "Now you are!"> Get the fuck out there

I do not like'em either. but tell me from what land are you stranger."I don't remember the full exchange but basically he ended up calming down, my friends got actual staff to get there and the hobo had to leave, he insulted "the administration vampires" and asked me to tell them he was sane. I got questionned by staff after that.
>>41519516Shit seen on the TTC.>Get on bus in the middle of the afternoon on a Saturday.>Girl walks on wearing nothing but police caution tape.>Sits down, gets off 4 stops later.>Subway car stops at station and doesn't pull out.>Realize that it is because an old lady is walking through the car shouting at each person in turn>Language is eastern european, or really drunk english with a thick european accent.>She gets to me before the cops arrive to take her away.>Not sure if given gypsy curse.>on subway middle of the day.>suddenly half the people take off their pants.>My stop is the next on, so I get off.and more than one instance of someone breaking out music and people starting to dance.Damn I miss that city.
War stories now? Cool, except I saw a grand total of 48 hours away from the yard, so not really a combat story.>innaAfghanistan >sitting in the yard at night>fixing radios and scrubbing brake disks>realise everyone else has wandered off>see a guy walk past in his briefs >just bumbling around>try to get his attention>just turns and looks in my direction with glazed over eyes>turns and stumbles off again>grinder fails>break it down to look for a fault>hear a low hum above me>start to look up>huge spark from the grinder>look up>can't see any stars>humming gets louder>deafening >grab muffs and move towards storage>painfully loud now>suddenly it stops>grinder is working just fine>stars are all backCould be aliums, could be a combination of three days without sleep, stress and the onset of dehydration.

>>41519841>No having the other pastasFor shame anon. Though to be fair they are rather rare and I don't have them either despite some of them being fucking amazing. Like say the one about the GM turned PC when drunk or the unfortunate two or three anons who ran into group of irl PCs and got dragged along for the ride for a time. I really wish someone had kept a hold of the first story about that group of PC's involving the nun, guy in a suit, gangster, and a dragqueen. I would of LOVED to have been able to read the first part damn it...

For once I actually have a couple. Neither are very interesting, and both take place at the Pennsic war, a SCA event that's equal parts historical reenactment, LARP, open-air market, family camping trip, and burning man. I'd been camping there with my girlfriend and a few other friends.The first encounter was at a Mardi Gras party, which is pretty much what you'd expect; lots of drinking and topless people dancing around campfires, beads being exchanged, etc. I'm not normally much of a drinker; I can hold my liquor fairly well, but I don't really enjoy the sensation of being drunk. Nor am I much of a partygoer - I've no problem with social interaction, but I don't dance or anything. But I'm having a good time at this party, doing what I must to get free shots (Including drinking one through a hollow dildo, and doing shot roulette), observing the various titties/dongs being flashed, and giving/receiving beads when I can. A couple hours in I'm happily buzzed, which I actually regret as a sober me might've capitalized on this situation more. The GF had taken a seat on a nearby bench, and I'd gone to refill our mugs, when I'm approached by an older woman (I'm guessing late 40s, MILF territory) in fairly revealing period costume. She asks what she can do to earn a string of beads. Now something I learned at this party is that I actually become a bit more of a gentleman while drunk, so rather than suggest anything I tell her that whatever she wants to offer would probably be fine. I'm expecting maybe a flashing or something, but she pulls me in for a kiss. Not a quick peck or anything, but some serious tongue work. This lasts a minute or so before I have to breathe again. I pull away, panting, and she compliments me on my technique. She then calls her husband (alarm bells going off) over and introduces me. I shake his hand and tell him his wife is lovely, when she asks two questions: did I come to the party alone, and was I doing anything that night.
>>41538270I answered honestly; I had come with a lady friend and had no specific plans, but it was getting late and we were both getting tired so we were going to head back. I can't tell if they seemed disappointed, because the evening is a bit fuzzy around the edges, but in hindsight it was pretty obvious they wanted to swing with us - or at least me. Unfortunately my booze-addled brain actually turned them down, then proceeded to lose my own lady and wander back to our camp, taking a few offered shots of rum along the way.The second encounter is much shorter and less interesting IMO, but still worth mentioning as it had some astronomical odds. My lady and I are walking around the marketplace later in the week when we decide to split up - she's an aspiring seamstress and wants to look at fabric, and I'm in the market for leatherworking stuff. So I wander into a stall to look at buckles when I get stopped by someone I don't recognize at first. Turns out it's someone who comes into the store where I work year-round - I don't know his name, but he knows mine cause I wear a nametag. Out of the 10,000+ people who were at the event, I just happen to run into someone who lives about a minute from where I work every day. This year we're planning on hanging out more.

>>41520564Confirmed.Visited Rome once and an little Gypsy girl asked me for my hand. I thought it was neat so I gave it to her, and she wove a fucking bracelet around my wrist with blinding Gypsy speed. She demanded me to pay for it, and it was making a scene and shit, so I nervously gave her 10 euros.
Happened two weeks ago, amazed at how dense some people are>riding pushbike along uni footpath during break>see hamplanet walking a dog, a huskie>poor thing is about bouncing off the floor its so excited>ride past, think nothing more>twenty minutes later, dropped off project>woman is coming towards me>as im about twenty meters away, dog slips its collar and bolts in the direction im heading>whale has no chance of catching it, she was out of breath from walking during a (admittedly warm) mid-winter day>i decide to do my good deed for the day>catch up with animal fifty metres further down path>jump from bike, catch animal, roll, tear the back out of my shirt>poor thing just wanted a run, it was young, excitable, and starting to put on weight, presumably because whale never took it for a run>while waiting for woman to catch up, check ear and back, the spots for microchips>nothing there, and my dads a vet so i know how to check>get harangued and abused for catching an unmarked animal>when i point out the animal had no chip, she said i was cruel for suggesting it, and 'his collar has his name and number'>the collar he just slipped>collect my bike, tell her she was a cunt and unfit to own an animal, and ride off while giving her the finger as she screamed at me and tried to restrain her dog>straya

>>41541701Kidnap her and take her as your wife, its a gypsy rule.
>>41538270Oh my god, like ten years ago at Gulf wars I had just turned 18 and this fat chick in her late 30s was hella hitting on me at this party I snuck into with the ole "I forgot my ID back at camp" routine and I was a drunk spergy virgin so I didn't know what to do, she ended up nibbling on my ear and telling me that her husband lets her sleep around at events and I didn't know what to do so I excused myself to the port-o-crapper and noped back to camp. Wonder if was the same person, she had ear length dark hair and was like 5'5"
>>41541701Man I hate that shit, and not because of the con nature. Yeah sure, whatever, scam people. Dick move for sure, but not the worst. What fucking Pisses me off is they hold a damp grudge if you don't fall for their bullshit. If you'd just sacked up and threw the bracelet back at her and told her to fuck off, every Gypsy in the city would be out for your blood. I wouldn't give a shit if the reaction was just "Eh, ya got me", and they leave. They have to take it fucking personal you won't let them get away with scamming you.

>>41543967I don't think it's the same person, or if it is she lost a lot of weight in the interim. She was the right height and hair color IIRC, but wasn't fat at all (at least not any more than you'd expect a 40-something to be.)

Dec 30, 2005 0200 hrs (I only remember because it was so close to New Years) on a 2 humvee checkpoint in Baghdad, Iraq. Curfew is in effect for civilian population. Just us and the insurgence out in the wee hours. Me and Lopez are on watch with night vision goggles on. Lopez says he has to shit. he says he is just going to step inside the tree and dig a little cat hole and take a dump. I say ok. 5 mins later I hear a struggle. Oh fuck they are slitting Lopez's throat! I shoulder M4 Carbine and kick Jordan on the ground and whisper they got lopez get everyone up. Hurry!Oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck!Search and scan, search and scan. Flip selector to fire. Lopez is on the ground with his pants around his ankles frantically trying to kick away a stray dog who is trying to each the MRE poo out of his asshole like a soft serve ice cream machine. Save Lopez and scare dog off. Next morning switch out with another squad from my Platoon. The same golden retiever mutt that was eating Lopez butt is frantically licking Sergeant Hanlins hand. Hanlin says thats a good boy! Man this dog is friendly! Me and Lopez laughing hard as we pull away. Get hit with 3 IEDs on way back to base but no one is hurt. Fuck this place.

Here's a copypasta that might be interesting: In the middle of the night a long time ago, when I was a nerdy little brat just taller than your average doorhandle, I woke up with the need to pee.The first thing I should note is that said house is 1 story with three bathrooms, and two of those are attached to bedrooms- my big brother's and my parent's- so if I wanted to go, I had to take the third. Due to various factors that amounted to habit, the short route to said bathroom was effectively denied to me, so I had to exit my room, walk through one hallway, three rooms, and touch into another hallway to get to said bathroom, rather than just taking that last corridor about 5 feet. Meh. Incidentally, my room had no windows, and the power was out... not that that was an issue.The door I took to exit my room in that era was right across from the windows to the front courtyard of our house. I was shyer and quieter than a mouse back then, so the ground I walked on frequently dominated my vision; in this case? That meant I was aware of the light from under my bedroom door as I left, and only peripherally aware of whatever was causing the world outside the window to resemble a floodlight more than a standard window into the night sky.
>>41550323By the time I walked out of that hallway into the living room, with its windows about the fireplace, I had realized, 'something's off about the light here, but I really need to pee.'Mind you, whatever was causing this only affected the outside light; inside, there was the implication of light, but nowhere near enough to blind outside detail; think an overlit 'creepy movie scene' more than than 'MY EYES MY EYES'. Plus, my introversion and vague panic kept me from looking out any windows (I would be hosed if a weeping angel popped up at my door- I tend to freeze and NOT look when my ohnosecond sense hits.)So I kept trekking, quietly going 'this is weird', through the two more rooms- also lit from windows, but not well enough for day- and get to the bathroom. At which point I'm certain the power is out, because the bathroom lights didn't work- meaning I had to try to empty my bladder with the door wide open, so I could see just enough to aim. I'm pretty sure I had worse aim than a stormtrooper at that point. Still, I was in the bathroom before I emptied my bladder.So I started my trek back after flushing, shuffled back along my path, making a note of never actually looking at or through the windows I think, and finally return to my room, where I closed the door, went back to bed, and quietly wondered to myself why everything was in greyscale.
