    Strange requests from neighbors

    You know how your neighbor calls and says can I borrow a cup of sugar or an egg or some flour or whatever...

    Mine called yesterday and asked to borrow my hip waiters. He was 100% serious and actually expected I would have some.

    Anyone else got any strange requests to share?

    I'm not exactly sure either. I think it's what those dudes wear when they wade out into the water to fish. In which case I guess they'd be hip waders.

    Re: Strange requests from neighbors

    I had a neighbor call me and ask for "a huge favor". He asked if I would come in his house and bring him some paper because he was on the toilet and didn't realize that there wasn't any before he let loose, and he didn't want to do the penguin walk half way across his house to get some. all be it this was a college buddy, but still

    Re: Strange requests from neighbors

    had a neighbor ask for some aluminum foil to make one of those "tv dinners" where you put meat and potato in the foil and cook it in the oven. i said sure, let me grab it. i gave them the roll and said "take what you need".
    they took a piece about 4 inches long. pretty sure the meat and potatos weren't going to fit in a 4" piece of foil, but the meth they were going to smoke would.

    I made a request to my neighbor and he acted all strange

    You know how your neighbor calls and says can I borrow a cup of sugar or an egg or some flour or whatever...

    I called my neighbor yesterday and asked to borrow his hip waiters. He said he didnt have any. He was 100% serious and actually didnt really know what they were. Where does this guy live? How does he go out into hip high water with no hip waiters?

    Anyone else got any strange responses to requests to share?

    That exact same thing happend to me in college, however at the time I didnt know what they were using it for. They would stop over every couple days and ask for a piece of tin foil!

    I guess that'd be normal if you were fishing or duck hunting buddies and he knew you had them. Strange to assume anyone would just have them.

    but this is iowa? doesn't everyone also have shotguns, tractors, and copies of "Field of Dreams"? It's only right to assume that he had waders.

    seriously though, ruxCYtable is obviously giving off some "hell yea I've got waders" type of vibe.
