Standing gathering names at the petition...

So here I am. A guy with mobility issues due to MS. And I'm standing in front of the post office (our community doesn't have letter carrier delivery) gathering names for a petition. Just to explain, the petition is for an initiative to get the government to back off the Harmonized Sales Tax. Anyway, I am standing with my clip board talking to folks. Some have got themselves bathed in perfume... Some have a little on. Some of the women smell great. But I also had spritzed on a little cologne to make me less 'manly' smelling. When all of a sudden, a woman I wouldn't know from Eve... Says to me while standing there, "You smell good." I was shocked. I mean, it's a man's place to proposition a woman. It's kind of expected isn't it? But a woman to say that to me??? Isn't that a little odd? Am I out of touch with reality? Tell me ladies, (or guys if this has happened to you) how common a practice is this???

Well Mike, you may be surprised with how forward females really are these days. I am pretty old fashioned and prefer to be complimented by men. I will say that kind of thing to my man or a man I know really well. But never a stranger!

That's the personality of that woman... To say something she wants to say... Anyway, your just shocked... she didn't hurt your feelings isn't? Its kind of unexpected if a woman tells you "you smell good"... hhhmmmmnnn....maybe when that woman smelled you... you reminded her of someone she knows...
