I had to share the one I got yesterday:
We share a duplex with a nice but rough guy downstairs who just had several rehab trips to recover from alcoholism (he has been sober now for a few months, so yay him!).
DH and I were arriving home from work yesterday and he stopped us, telling us he had something for us and asked, "You don't have a potty chair yet, do you?" When we said no, he went into his condo and brought out an ancient wooden potty chair with a strap to LOCK BABIES IN (which our neighbor gleefully pointed out). After DH and I had politely accepted it and thanked him, he said,
"And I'm not using it anymore--I used to keep it in the kitchen and use it when I was too drunk to make it to the bathroom, but I'm sober now!"
I have no idea if he was joking, but needless to say my jaw hit the floor! He's a nice guy, but what a weird thing to say!
