Excuse me sir, you lose something?

I went to Wal-Mart this morning to buy some milk, lightbulbs, and garbage bags. I wasn't there too early, around 9:30.
As I walked around the store, I couldn't help but notice people shopping in their p.j.'s. I wonder what they needed that bad, where they couldn't even wait to get dressed before going out.
An older fellow ahead of me was actually in a night gown! Like a night gown that Scrooge wore.
I had to look twice, and he caught me. I guess I must have had a look of sheer terror on my face, because he turned around and said "Nice weather out. You OK?"
I quickly fumbled around in my pockets, and told Ebeneezer that I think I lost my wallet.
I ducked out of line, and scurried down the nearest isle, which, luckily for me, was the over sized underwear isle.
I looked back, and the old guy was still watching me. He actually stepped out of line to watch me walk away. I immediately thought of the old guy from Family Guy, and just prayed that he didn't ask me if I liked Popsicles....
By now I was getting a little nervous, so I went to the electronics department. I was checking if there were any deals on video games, when I got that eerie feeling that somebody was watching me. I turned around - all I saw was the nightgown.....
He walked up to me and handed me a wallet!!!
I turns out this guy found a wallet in the store, and thought it belonged to me. So I did what any honest person would do - grab the big bills, and then turn it in to Customer service. Just kidding.
What are the chances of actually getting caught in my own little lie?!?

Haha, hilarious!
I personally never understood how someone could wear pyjamas out of the house- until I had mono and I wasn't able to put on regular clothes cause of the body rash- but i digress, I think there's something so sad about seeing people out in nightwear at 9:30 in the morning.
Well, unless they have a body rash, then it's not sad in the same kind of way.

What a strange experience. Love the way the guy gave you that wallet. He must have thought you were really strange :-)

Oh yes - FINALLY something weird happened to you instead of me...but I wish I was there, you know I would have totally went along with it!

truthfully I was one of those pajama wearing folks last month. I was too damn lazy to put on my jeans so I just wore the "fat pants" to the grocery store. Not one of my proudest moments, but hey... what do I care?

Much like your dear wife, I wish I was there. Ali and I could have totally compounded the situation. Of course I might have made it worse by saying "You didn't lose your wallet you fuckin' liar!"

Friends are awesome!

Two things….. that is typical clientele of our Wal-Mart’s around here. Second, don’t hospital workers in Canada wear PJ’s to work like they do here? It would be so comfortable to wear scrubs.

I ain’t trying to pick a fight or nothing ‘cause you are bigger than me.
