These are all very personal stories total strangers have shared with me.
Total random strangers.
It happens at Wal-Mart, the doctor's office, across the pump at the gas station. Location doesn't matter. I even got to hear the life story of the Dell support guy who came to my house to fix my computer.
I don't start these conversations. I'm not nosey. I don't ask questions. It's as if I have a sign on my shirt requesting random conversations with people.
Don't get me wrong, this doesn't bother me. Not one bit. It's just funny that it always happens to me. I'm sure some of my friends can share stories where they've been with me when this happens. It's random and odd.
JD says it's because I have a caring spirit. Whatever it might be, I'm just glad that people see me as someone they can talk to. Whether they know me or not.
