    OK, well if I wasn't married. I would be at the Parks alone and I am sure people would think I was creepy. As it is, my wife and I know hardly anyone here and my coworkers aren't as into working at DL as I am - so you know - I sorta feel bad for the creepy man.

    However there is this individual, who is a little strange, who rides the Monorail around and around and recites the entire recorded spiel word for word. It's very weird. Now any time I get the urge to talk along with a spiel I stop myself - so I don't look like a nutcase

    If you are that urgent about not interacting with the person, there are still respectful ways to respond. It's polite to listen for a moment before saying, "I'm sorry, my group doesn't have a lot of time together, and we were having a private discussion. But thank you for the information."
    Good point! When I lived and worked in Anaheim I knew a gardener who lived with his elderly mother just a few blocks away on Lemon Street and within walking distance from the park. He was a simple person who was probably in his 50s and reminded you of a mature Dopey with a touch of Quasimodo, but he had a sweet, outgoing personality.

    I'm sure senior CMs in here remember him from the '70s and early '80s because he was a frequent guest at DL. "George" was on a first name basis with many of the CMs and could often be seen sitting on the curb waiting for the parade with his little shopping bag.

    Very childlike and outgoing, he would talk with guests and I could see that many were uncomfortable with such close contact. I was also in the park a lot and would always have a little chat with him since I knew him in the community.

    "George" was just so pleased to have a day off from mowing lawns and be able to visit his favorite place on earth. I personally saw many CMs go out of there way to talk with him and you could tell their attention just made his day that more special.

    Hey, us creepy people need to stick together!

    Nice pic Disneyphile!

    All I know is that occasionally I chime into people's conversations at the park, but usually its an attempt to be helpful. Like one time I was standing around the castle after the fireworks and a bunch of people were trying to leave and kept pestering the cm as to when the castale would be open again, and I suggested they leave fantasyland by going around the teacups so they could leave the park sooner. Or othertime when I am in Fantasyland watching the fireworks, I would tell people to turn around so they wouldn't miss Tinkerbell. I think they key is knwing when your advice is helpful and appreciated, or annoying and creepy.

She told us so many times, we had it memorized by the time we managed to ditch her when the line split near the loading area.

    Creepiest of all: since we were rolling it over and over and OVER in our minds, we were checking her accuracy during the ride, and she was RIGHT!

    Lord, may it never be so with me!

    I'm not saying all single riders are creepy. But the single rider in the original post just sounded like someone i'd want to stay away from. Don't get me wrong...i'm all for friendly banter, but I think we can all admit that there are just some people that creep us out more than others.

    Or both. There is some overlap of symptoms in both conditions. Sounds like something my son (a cross between a less-severe Rain Man and the Jack Nicholson character in "As Good As It Gets") might do if we let him ride alone.....

    And I think LSPoorEeyorick is right that we need to show compassion for these people ... more than what my son was shown last week at the zoo ...

    Sweet! I love disturbing the comfortable. Beware of me next time you're at the park. I'll have to bring my Stitch backpack and make him talk. Heh. :devil:

    But see you don't count because you're trying too hard and it's obvious you aren't creepy. It's the people that don't think they are creepy that are the most creepy.

    I would love to respond to that, but Stitch told me I'm not allowed to. Instead, he told me to tell you this:

    Meega nala queesta!! H....h......hiiiii!
