Edit : Full question : Would you find it weird if an almost complete stranger gave you an autographed CD of a band you like.

I'm just wondering because I don't really know this person but I want to give them an autographed CD from a band that I often see them wearing a shirt for and I was wondering if it was odd.

I still say do it. I'm probably not the best one to give advice on this sort of thing...but the way I look at it is if you don't, you'll regret it. And you don't have anything to lose!

No, I'd be like "sweet! Free CD!"

...and then would think whoever gave it to me was pretty darn cool.

I went with yes, since it would. But it'd still make me talk to you, and you'd've given me a present, so that's when you strike, like some majestic cobraninja with a heart of pure g- So, moving on, in summary, I say "Do it anyway, damnit".


--------------------

JERUSALEM, Israel (AP) - In response to Israel's denial of water to the West Bank, HAMAS released three cheetahs in West Jerusalem, where they went on a killing spree, mauling four Jews and injuring thirteen.

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) - Following a cheetah attack on West Jerusalem perpetrated by the majority HAMAS party, the Israeli Air Force retaliated by detonating twenty kiloton nuclear devices over Gaza City, Jenin, Nablus, Rafah, and Ramallah.

ASHDOD, Israel (AP) - As a result of the atomic bombings of five Palestinian cities, a 50-foot tall reptile has woken from its million-year slumber in the Mediterranean Sea. The monster has made landfall at Ashdod and obliterated the city. Eyewitnesses report that the monster left the destroyed city heading southeast.

If you were some skeevy person with a ratty old van saying you have more CDs at your house, than yeah. Otherwise, you'd be just abnormally nice.

I sure as Hell wouldn't mind someone giving me an autographed Mushroomhead CD. Go for it. Kuedos for the good vibes.

Weird? The situation, yes, a bit weird - most days, autographed CDs of bands I like don't come falling out of the sky. The person who gave the CD? I'd just think, wow, how abnormally nice and observant this person must be... effing sweet, I got an autographed CD!

Definitely weird, but in a good way. I think that the person would appreciate it, and be glad that you noticed. It's still weird, though.

My pizza guy back in SC gave me my Meteora CD because he felt bad for always being late with my pizza.

Seriously, go for it. It'll be more nice than weird.

Yes, it would be weird, but don't let that be any kind of justification to stop you from doing it.

All weird is is just not what ordinary people do. And ordinary people are dull. Screw them.

*does the 'give it him' (read: 'running man') dance*

I think you should give it him, hun. Especially if you're not really into the CD, what do you have to loose? Not normal stuff makes life more interesting.

It might be weird, like has been said, but it's not like your gonna go up to him and pour a pint of milk on him, coz that'd be bad weird. What you propose is good weired biggrin.gif *nods lots whilst still doing the 'running man' dance*

Weird, but in a good way. You're trying to attract this dude's attention, yeah? Spontaneously giving him what is by any account a damn cool gift is a good way to do it; I know I'd want to talk to somebody who did that.

Depends on the guy. Personally, I really would not know how to react to that at all if it happened to me, but I'm a bit odd about things like that sometimes. I realise this isn't really helpful or encouraging, but I thought I'd say anyway. Just in case...erm...the thing...wosits...again...yeah. That.

depends how much of a stranger you are.

If its just someone you see at the bus stop everyday, then yes: you are weird, and this person will probably think you're coming on to them.

If its someone you work with, then maybe not so weird.

I think, as long as you've actually spoken to this person, especially about the band in question, its okay. I'm not saying don't do it, I'm just saying it would be weird. wierd. Can never remember how to spell it.

I say do it, you know you're just trying to be nice and if he takes it wrong way shove the CD up his ass and sniff haughtily at him. Anyone who gets freaked out at someone giving them a thoughtful and eminently suitable gift doesn't deserve the joy of the LoLo!

It's similar to that. This person is a postal carrier who delivers to my store and strangly enough gets to wear plain clothes rather than the postal uniform, which is why I've seen this person in shirts from the band.

The most I've managed to say to him though is, "We have outgoing, or we don't have any mail going out today." I'm just a chicken and wasn't sure if I was going to make getting the mail on the occasions when he comes into the store odd. Of course if it got weird I could always hide behind the magic curtain and stay in the back.

I think you should go for it. If it were me, you'd come across as a totally cool, generous person, not some stalker weirdo type. I can't really see what you have to lose; the worst thing that can happen is that is that he says "No", which is unlikely.. It'd also be incredibly flattering, be just be given a gift out of the blue.

It would make you a better person. Also, you might get laid for the first time in... however long it's been. And he would be made happy, which makes the whole thing a win-win-win situation! Unless, of course, he is a paranoid schizophrenic, in which case you'd better lock your doors properly at night.

I can't believe it but I managed to give it to him. The only thing really weird was as he stood there looking at it in shock I think, that I couldn't seem to stop babbling. He says he wants to get me something in return, but I told him not to.
