I think I just met Dgold at Barnes & Noble

@dgold44

I'm at the Barnes & Noble, minding my own. Chilling out in technology section, reading books on coding and the like. I'm sure the section across from me was rife with Vegas survival tips and grappling 101. This guy with a pronounced mustache and a bald eagle jacket approaches me, asking where the books on cameras are. He proceeds to tell me that it's a gift for a recent college graduate (that isn't his he makes sure to pontificate). He talks about how brick and mortar stores are dying and it's a sign of the times. I almost ask him about his UPS store but I refrain, letting him instead ramble on about peregrine falcons and bald eagles and how two guys in his regiment broke several violations freeing them.

He talks about his days in the marines - flying an aircraft into the eye of a hurricane. He opines about his liberal professors and how he didn't listen to a "damn thing they said". Yet makes sure to also tell me he got the best education possible in America and is a part of Mensa and a savant. He also talks about pulling daggers out of peoples backs in combat.

He then asks me where I went to school - "Michigan State for Undergrad and Michigan for Grad" - he is moderately impressed by this millennial, likely expecting me to still be living on Sureshs dime. He asks what I majored in. "First degree was in Journalism but also got one in Economics later on down the road."

"Oh Economics that's great" , all but ignoring my liberal arts degree. "It's a good year for you, especially if you're a Trump guy like me. I'm still waiting for that report, I can't wait to read it" - as he puts a mint into his mouth and talks about some report I pretend to know about. Some UPS report, I assume.

As our conversation begins to end, he suddenly tells me to join the Marines. "I never had to apply for a job in my entire life, son" suddenly etching me yet another father alongside my biological one and Tomas Berdych. "If you join the Marines, you will have lots of money in your bank account, though you may see battle" - I could only assume he was talking about all of the TTW battles or the battles between package thieves being chased by UPS customers or delivery drivers.

He ends the conversation with "Be careful" and "Stay frosty" which left me asking myself if this guy thought he was in a Call of Duty virtual reality game. I tell him "Semper Fi" which seems to resonate with him, and a wry smile emerged from his monopoly man aesthetic.

As mysteriously as he appears, he disappears.

And that's how I met @dgold44

Bonus: A red head was vigorously arguing with the cashier over the discounted price of a figurine. I can only assume it was @Red Rick trying to buy an Andy Roddick/Murray action figure.

Ha

If you meet me you woulf get a quiet hello and I would never ever mention my politics .
I am very secretive and low key in person .
When I do talk it’s pretty soft spoken
 
Did you gain knowledge from these experiences and the books?
I wen't to Home Depot afterwards to get tools to install the 7 new bookshelves I need for the 2000 books on TTW I just bought.

I just love “those people “ who actually read the book in the store and don’t spend a dime !! I see them eating a coffee cake as crumbs slide off their smelly beards and rotten teeth onto the book

dgold: you in Mensa? I'm in Triple 9 Society. Oddly enough, my wife and I were at the grocery store this afternoon.. . and there was a van with a Mensa bumper sticker on it.

LOL I was just perusing the book. They wanted $50 for it when it is $25 on Amazon. That's why they're dying.

I saw dgold at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a ****** and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

If it was Starbursts he was trying to shoplift I would believe you...they are Covfefe45’s favorite candy.

This can’t be him...he doesn’t have long drawn out conversations with anyone for fear of losing valuable “post up” time in the TTW “paint.” Also, if he didn’t look like this and rant about his “precious” threads being hijacked, it’s definitely not him:

I know, right? Why would that twat walk into a bookstore when he doesn't even know how to read?

It doesn't make sense.

Big dummy ?? I am sure I have read far more books in a few yrs than what your damaged brain can do in a lifetime !!
You think you’re dangerous ?? I highly doubt it

I think dgolds worst nightmare would be grappling with a Russian in a ups store while the pipes rattle and threaten to flood the room. Las Vegas street denizens with questionable hygiene will breathe on him while he is in a hold. If he loses his ups store will be flooded, his apartment rent will go up, he will be a mark for a Vegas mob and he will be banned from Indian Wells. I think I may have missed a rant thread or three, though.

I won’t lie about my personal net worth like your roll model but I’m not bad off enough to go on food stamps or “scavenge for food in a nearby dumpster.” Last night wasn’t so bad, getting north of $200. Today’s first hour is past that pace but it’s Sunday, a much slower night in general. Your “generosity” isn’t required but keep feeding us your fountain of threads...they are pure 24K ComedyGold44!
