These People Encountered Celebrities in Bizarrely Normal Places


25 years ago I drove a cab while in college. Picked up Paul McCartney. It was near my mother’s birthday and I called her and he sung her happy birthday.


Random convenience store in Hawaii, Robert Downey Jr walks up next to me while I’m looking at drinks in a cooler and asks me something like ”how do you know how much everything is?” because there were no prices on the racks. It was about 10 seconds after I said “I guess you just take it up to the register” that everything about that whole scenario finished processing, then I had absolutely no clue what to do.
