This is creepy because I just got back from lunch where a guy approached me outside the restaurant with two giant stuffed bears and asked me if it was my birthday. I said, "no." Then he asked me when my birthday was. Feeling uncomfortable, I responded, "December." He told me he was giving away bears to birthday girls. I sort of politely smiled and nodded and ran into the restaurant. I still don't know what was going on there, but the situation was weird.
