Today, one of my regulars approached me at work, arms extended for a hug. He's always in a bad mood, so I figured for once he wasn't grumpy and I enthusiastically hugged him. Turns out he was just stretching his arms. He told me I was crazy and pretty much ran out of my store. FML

For all the people who think this is strange you have to understand hes been a regular at my store for 2 years. Its not like it was some random person. Hes so depressed and angry every time, so when I finally saw him for once not looking upset and like he wanted a hug I went for it. Silly mistake on my part but what can I say I always hope for the best in people. He came back today and apologized. See a friendly hug goes a long way. So you negative people need a hug.

Awh, that sucks OP. At least you're taking initiative to spread the love!

I'll take that hug if you don't mind

Actually, OP doesn't realise it but she probably seriously brightened that guy's day. He sounds like the sort of guy who's only grumpy all the time because that's how he wants to act and is always find an excuse to, so by hugging him she brought him down to reality and showed that people are actual nice to be around.

True. But he did just meet OP. He said she was crazy. Don't give him your number, or call him maybe.

I think the grumpy guy is more awkward in this case. In my opinion, OP was being friendly, and accepting the hug that she thought the grumpy guy was giving him. It was an awkward situation for both of them, but we shouldn't assume that OP is always socially awkward.

It's cool tho cuz awkward people are generally pretty amazin :]

OP was stretching too, he just got in the way.

Why would you want a hug from some random person? I'd think it a tad strange if Simone gave me a hug. I wouldn't go running out but I'd find it awkward afterwards.

Yeah, Simone needs to stop hugging people.

Damned Simone, always spreading shit around

Usually, one asks another if that another needs hug in situations like that. In my school, "touching longer than two seconds" is considered pda.

Yeah, but OP lives in the real world where hugging for two seconds doesn't equal sneaking off to have sex in the janitor's closet. My school was pretty strict about PDA too and I thought it was ridiculous, especially after growing up and spending the first ten years of my school career in Germany. I never even heard of PDA until I moved to the US.

You can never pass up a hug. Well, almost never...

No kidding. I've been feeling really lonely lately and would love to be hugged. That guy was a jerk

I'm not saying he's a jerk, he just needs to stretch his arms differently

Despite the misunderstanding, I think that was kind of you none the less. Sounds to me like you have a good heart, Op. Don't let this experience extinguish that! :) Cheers!

He must've still been mad about the time he thought he saw his girlfriend and was running up to hug her but then realized it wasn't really her. :(

It's a good you're here to tell us that. Otherwise we might have never realized that a situation posted on **** My Life was sucky.
