More Gumby


If you are new to my blog, you should really read this post first, or you may not get the full understanding of Gumby. If you are not new then I am sure you remember Gumby. Well, he has taken yet another step in alienating himself from the normal world. The picture just would not turn out, but below is a picture of the sign that he made on Monday. It says "Help Yourself" and has an arrow pointed to the giant bag of peanuts and taffy on his desk. It is double sided and attached to a yardstick. I also took a picture of the "Gum Container" that he walks around with. Although it is also not a very good picture, because usually it is very neat, plus he has every single different kind of gum in his other hand and he carries the container in case someone finishes a pack on his rounds, he can always offer us every different kind. Seriously, he is a legend, you just cannot make this kind of stuff up.

Is it possible this guy has Asperger's Syndrome, or something like that?

Yep! Barb, the author there is awesome. Once you know and love an "aspie" they are easy to spot. :D

Gumby probably just doesn't know how to make friends. But taking his gum will make his day.

I've tried to make his day by taking the gum several times, GH (I work with Gumby also). It only feeds into his insane need to walk up behind you and "PSSSST, PSSSST" so enormously loud that you rocket up out of your seat.
