- Okay, this might seem really bizarre, but it's based on a true story.

I used to work at Jo-Ann Fabrics in the frame shop. One day while on break, sitting in my car in the parking lot, I noticed an H2 (that's a big-ass SUV version of the Hummer, for reference) parked across the way from me. In it was a large man and a child. Every time someone walked in front of the H2, the man would become animated, looking to all appearances like he was shouting at the person walking by. Granted, I couldn't hear anything he was saying, but my only logical assumption was that he was making fun of the old ladies' fabric selections.

What makes the story really weird is that I watched him do this for my entire 30 minute break. He was still doing it when I went back inside to work. Why was he parked at Jo-Ann's? Why was he yelling people who walked by, knowing they could never hear him? The world may never know.

Picking on old ladies behind there backs, so to speak. Yeah, real manly there dad, real manly.
Oh wow, someone was actually doing that?! Well at least appearing to do so. Though to be honest, with what you said about him being animated when an old lady walk by as well as him being there for thirty minutes, would assume the same. Can't really imagine anything else better.

*raises hand* I know why he did it! <8D He had no life and for some strange reason wanted his kid to know too! That being said I'm sure Luffinpuff will have something to say about this! >83

I feel what Luffinpuff is feeling back there. You know. Anxiousness. Trepidation. A little insulted. Hungry.

Oh gawd. This comic made me laugh so hard.

@ xkrazydog - Anyone who drives an H2 or any other stupidly big SUV like that is definitely compensating for something.

@ Zanoushe - My Father, The Car

@ I'm Rose - That's because she can't hear him! She's protected from insults by a thick layer of metal machinery and bulletproof glass.

@ H0lyhandgrenade - Oh, he will!

@ MoreThanOnce - Sorry to hear that! You should show him this comic.

@ James Birdsong - Obviously.

@ Silver_Bubbles - AWK-WARD!

@ Squiggles - You're probably not too far off!

@ UpsideDown8 - You're on!

@ RazorD9 - That's all I could figure anyway. But who parks in front of a fabric store that long?

@ Akiaa - RUN HER OVER!! No just kidding.

@ SushiGummy - Remember to aim for targets that can't hear you and never give up.

@ blackmoongirl2424 - Like I said, she couldn't hear it. But I'm sure she'll get over it!

@ LuckyTrinity - That's pretty much right! He's just showing how a REAL man behaves towards the arts and crafts.

@ white4lima - I'm feeling all those too. But mostly the hungry part.

@ Paliana - Glad it made a giggle! :D

She actually has a crowbar underneath all of those rolls of gaudy fabrics and is going to trash the car. Either that or she'll knit them into a corner.
