Weird/Funny situations you got yourself into for being Otaku/geek/anything else?

Not long ago I was at the supermarket wearing a t-shirt that had a devil kitty and when I turned around there was this old lady dragging an employee to show him my t-shirt. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

(To be fair… I avoid wearing that t-shirt in some places but it was the only black one available that day XDDD)

People I know often make jokes saying old ladies do this kind of thing, but I never thought this would happen to me.

Have you ever been through this kind of thing?

The kitty:

Man that evil Kitty is so cute! It’s a shame the old lady got upset over it. :confused:

Nothing like that has happened to me BUT as I do wear a lot of black I’ve often been confused with a waitress or shop assistant. :sweat_smile:

Mee too! As I always wear all black, I’ve often been confused with shop assistant! :rofl:
I was a shop assistant for five years, maybe that’s also one of the reasons! :sweat_smile:

The evil kitty is cute though!

I had my ecchi shirt once (the shirts from TOB from a year ago) - it was fun, honestly I got a few questions where I got it, it’s cool and so on. But I can’t deny that I got the weird look from the elders :joy: so worth it

  1. You don’t need that negativity
  2. When people look down on me for conventions, anime, etc. I respond with “How sad that you limit the entertainment you can enjoy…”

It’s normal when people are introduced to something they don’t understand. I was always a “strange” one. Long hair, death metal t-shirts, etc. I guess you get used to things and don’t care about what they think or say.

About wearing black… when I went to a concert (Vamps, with Hyde :heart_eyes:) once, and old man on the bus made the sign of the cross when I passed by him.

Not goth black, btw, just comfy black :rofl::rofl:

If I were a teenager going through that, I’m sure I’d be very frustrated and upset, but you know how when we grow up and learn adults aren’t as smart as we used to think? :rofl::rofl:

Something kind of funny that happened because of me being an anime fan is that I met my husband on a mobile app because of Hatsune Miku.

So, I’ll explain this one: my friend and I have been fans of Hatsune Miku for a while and we were able to go to one of her concerts in Texas a few years ago. While we were waiting in line to get into the place, there were people passing out flyers for a mobile game called ‘Unison League’. They had put Hatsune Miku as well as the other Vocaloids into the game and some really cool things you could get for your character.

So, when I got home from the concert, I downloaded the game right away and grinded SO much Miku stuff! Part of what you could do in the game was join chat rooms to chat with other players. This random guy (now my husband) walks up to me, we start talking, and the rest is history. XD

Not all elders give weird looks. Some of us SQUEE and want to know where you got it (although, I have the shirts you’re talking about!).

The only time I’ve gotten any grief was from my son. He just rolled his eyes at my TOB shirt.

Although, we were supposed to go out to a steakhouse one night and I wore my Rule 34 shirt and he said, point blank, “I am NOT going to a resturant with you wearing that.”
