Today a nutter started talking to me, I was polite.
Fortunately I had the perfect excuse, had to put a ticket on my car.

How do you get rid of Nutters?

Online and real life

Online is easy you can block them, in the outside world it depends on what sort of nutter they are, if they're harmless then I just chat to them for a bit and then give a reason for having to go, sometimes I pretend to be crazier than they are to make them go away, sometimes I just leg it

They're usually trying to get rid of me.

Its when they walk up to you, a total stranger, tell you what medication they are on.
Then ask what medication you are on?
Then when you say none, you hit bizarre.

Last one I met.

I can do a somersault, watch me.
Then I say no, and he says, why are you not doing one.

I’m told I have a miserable face which seems to be my default look. Nutters,and even Big Issue salesmen, avoid approaching me!

png, you must have "resting bitch face", when your face in in repose, because you're minding your own business you look like a thundercloud, I have the same, I often get told to 'cheer up love, it may never happen', which is pretty much guaranteed to make my blood boil.

Wow you have some really "good", nutters round your way!

Whenever someone said to me cheer up,I used to say my Dads just died,They never knew what to say

I have a "resting bitch face" ? Thank you very much that must have scuppered any chance of a date on here haha!!!

I'm guessing that is the case though especially when I'm driving and people think I'm angry! Sorry it's just my face.

I think you have a pleasant enough face, PNG, although the representation showing on here is perhaps a little blank?
"Nutters" are often people who usually get ignored, feel isolated and approach the first person who looks like somebody they can communicate with. Provided they are not of the total loony type, a bit of friendly (i.e. non-hostile) communication, a smile and a courteous "excuse me" and they go on their way feeling better. about themselves.

Top reply Aely, I was nice and polite to my nutter, and stopped him doing a somersault on tarmac.

Thank you Aely :) .. although I do have an unapproachable demeanor I would never be rude if cornered by the local "friendly character"

All the nutters I meet are friendly!

I enjoy talking to strange people. Maybe I'm strange.

I like nutters too. They are usually nice people.

Takes one to know one?
