Strangest Thing

The other day I ran into this question:

What is the strangest thing to happen, or you have done, on SL?

I have been thinking about that question for some time. I have done a lot of things on SL. Things I wouldn’t have done in real life. I have had a lot of things happen to me on SL. So, I made a short list:

  • Jumped out of a hot air balloon with and without a parachute
  • Been bitten by vampires
  • Fallen in and out of love
  • Been betrayed
  • Made some great friends
  • Broken up with friends
  • Had my heart broken
  • Had someone freak out over the name of a location to get free items

The incident that stands out as one of the strangest in my time on SL happened years ago. I was with the man I was seeing at the time. He had a premium account and with it an SL home. I like to wear a wide variety of clothing. Including very skimpy clothes. The outfit I had on was incredibly revealing and practically see through. I was kneeling out of the way of the flying furniture he was moving around.

All of a sudden a dark shadow appeared by the window. I darted my eyes to it and looked up. The long flowing brown dress covered up to her neck tight. Long sleeves cinched at the wrists. Her eyes dark, she glared and shouted, “What are you doing in there? This is PG land. She shouldn’t be dressed like that. Or kneeling like that. Have you no shame.”

“We are inside my home. You are trespassing.” The man I was with stated. I ignored her as I could not understand how two consenting adults doing something inside a private home could be wrong. It wasn’t like we were having sex. Even still that is allowed inside a linden home.

“Come here and see this abomination.” She screeched to a man who walked over. Next thing I know I got an IM, “You should be so ashamed of yourself. You have no dignity, no pride. To wear something like that, to kneel on the floor. You need serious help.”

My eyes opened wide. “How did you spot them?” The other man asked.

“I cammed through the houses. I have a right to make sure my neighbors act appropriately inside and outside their homes in my neighborhood.” She huffed. Her argument landed on deaf ears as people told her she was the one with the problem. She’d trespassed and was guilty of harassing her neighbors. All the while she continued to lecture me in IM. My not responding to her seemed to aggravate her until she finally ran out of steam. I did end up muting and blocking her.

All these years later it stands out as the strangest thing to happen because it was so out of the norm. This was the only time I’d gotten judged, and lectured, so badly simply because of the outfit I was in and that I was kneeling on the floor.

What is the strangest thing to happen, or you have done, on SL?
