Once encountered a troll who believed property rights were sacrosanct but that people should choose to use their wealth to build communist communities. The rage it caused both conservatives and liberals was astonishing. He was placed under house arrest for punching a cop. https://t.co/rekgLeTSRH

Literally a few days ago, I was in the lift with this woman who decided to give me an in depth explanation of her shower regiment…which she swears made her lose weight…just randomly decided to tell me this, a complete stranger, because she thinks I’m too fat

I know an old couple who eat the same 7 evening meals each week, in the same order. Have done for decades. They also make two lots of 8 cups of tea each morning, then microwave them as needed.

Lad I met in a residents' bar on Cavan once (yes, I have only myself to blame) who communicated only through the medium of quacking. Funny thing is, about an hour in, I started to understand him. Ended up crying on my shoulder then stealing my drink

Knew a fella who used to leave the pub, walk up the road to a phone box, ring the pub pretending to be someone else, ask if he was there, and then walk back to the pub. All the regulars knew but never let on

a friend of my ex's dad who , among other things, cut a head shaped hole in his net curtains so that he could sit in his enormous velvet reclining chair to watch people passing by . it was on the edge of an estate in a small Welsh town . he once licked his dog's eye to clean it.

A woman in Pret wanted me to hold the toilet door wide open whilst she took a shit. I asked why, and she pulled out a knife. I ended up persuading her into closing the door but leaving it unlocked, whilst I stood outside. Afterward, she thanked me and offered to buy me a coffee

I lived with a guy who only ate rashers. He'd keep em in the freezer then cut em length wise while frozen solid with a butchers cleaver he had for that purpose alone. Would only wear jocks and crocs while attempting to cut the frozen meat block. Sometimes howled while chopping.

A guy showed up wearing a top hat on our first date and when we got in the taxi there was an overwhelming grape bubblegum scent. It turned out he wore the essence as his cologne. Also he was very interested in dressing me up as a hamburger.

Bonus: Even much-loved famous people can be weird sometimes.
A man came into my coffee shop and ranted at me for half an hour and called me weird. He looked like Alan Rickman but was far too disheveled to be him. Turns out it was Alan Rickman. https://t.co/7zMBMb6e88
