What does it mean when an old woman looks at you and then forms the sign of the cross on her chest?

This happened to me this morning. I was walking by the bus stop on the way to my car. This elderly woman looks at me, does a double take, and then forms the sign of the cross on her chest. What does that mean? Did she see the devil in me or something>

She fucking hates you.

It means she's Eerily Signing, Toots.

by Anonymousreply 211/07/2013

It was a sign of endearment, just shake your head at her in a pitying way.

by Anonymousreply 311/07/2013

She was offering up a prayer for you. You are blest. Rejoice!

You were wearing white after Labor day, weren't you?

She could smell your cummy hole.

Did she call you Dimi?

OP, you in danger, girl!

Get yourself immediately to a RC confessional and unload all your heathen transgressions. Otherwise you are doomed OP. Old ladies don't just do this to anyone!

You should never wear your "I post on Datalounge and all I get is this lousy caftan" caftan in public, OP.

Reminds me of the time I was on a bus and I sat in a seat a little kid had been playing with and wouldn't give it back so he loudly told his mother I smelled like pee. Which I didn't. He repeated it about ten times and the whole bus was staring at me in disgust.

by Anonymousreply 1511/07/2013

It was a sign you apparently distressed this elderly woman and she blessed herself in hopes of gaining needed strength to survive your awesomeness or her degree of fright.

Also, for old women, rapidly making the sign of the cross is an exercise they use to keep their breasts firm.

Did you get hit by a bus yet, OP?

It means you've dried cum on your chin.

by Anonymousreply 2011/07/2013

Maybe you looked like somebody from her past and it freaked her out.

You should have hissed, spat and extended your hands in a claw like fashion.

I second R22. Particularly if your fly is indeed open.

One MAKES the sign of the cross, OP, one doesn't FORM it.

You look just like the man who gave her the nickname "Backdoor Sally".

Here's OP later, caught on the WalCam*

by Anonymousreply 3511/07/2013

It means you're disturbing her and she thinks you are possessed by a demon from Satan's Hell, that's what.

by Anonymousreply 3611/07/2013

You reminded her of someone she lost. She was giving a blessing to that person. It is also possible that she was making the gesture in front of a cross or a statue she passes every day and it had nothing to do with you. Don't worry about it.

by Anonymousreply 3811/07/2013

She was probably crazy - well, even crazier than most religious zealots.

by Anonymousreply 3911/07/2013

You should have moved toward her saying "Mommy?"

She's got really good gaydar and knows you're going to burn.

It was your foundation. Much too orange.

by Anonymousreply 4311/08/2013

It means that you either are dressed too gay, have an overly gay voice, or have a huge case of gayface. Either way, you need to butch up.

What's on your Ipod OP?

by Anonymousreply 4511/08/2013

Are you an annoying hipster new to Bushwick, Greenpoint, Long Island City?

Perhaps the old woman wants you to get the fuck out of HER neighborhood?

by Anonymousreply 4611/08/2013

OP may be an EST.

But I swear to god something similar happened to me in New Orleans. Only the lady crossed herself and said "9-9-9". It freaked me out. Does anyone know what the hell that could possibly mean?

by Anonymousreply 4711/08/2013

There was a funeral procession behind you and the hearse went by.

by Anonymousreply 4811/08/2013

You could have asked her. But it's not a good sign if you were the only person she could have been looking at.

People have what is called "auras". Some have evil auras. Some have good auras. If children and dogs love you, that's a very good sign. Whether you could be possessed by a demon is up to you to find out. Go to a priest and talk to him and tell everything about your lifestyle. They advise the sinners like you and me for free. Don't take this, lightly.

by Anonymousreply 4911/08/2013

R47, how long ago was that in New Orleans?

Because years ago there was the Lucky Bead Lady, an elderly, mean white charity case who would approach people in the Quarter and ask them if the wanted to purchase "Lucky Beads" from her (which were just some old Mardi Gras beads that she scooped up out of some gutter). And if you didn't buy them ----or worse!--made fun of her, she would actually put a curse on you.

The curse was real. Bad things happened to me and my friends RIGHT after we laughed at her. I was robbed, my friend was killed in a hit and run, I lost my job---it went on and on.

by Anonymousreply 5011/08/2013

She saw you and it reminded her of those old Playtex cross-your-heart bra commercials on 70's TV. Her reaction was just muscle memory kicking in.

by Anonymousreply 5111/08/2013

Because you crossed her path once before, Cheryl.

by Anonymousreply 5211/08/2013

Crossing oneself is the customary gesture when encountering evil incarnate.

by Anonymousreply 5311/08/2013

You ought to have smiled broadly, thanked her, and kept walking. She would have then stared at you until you were out of her sight.

by Anonymousreply 5411/08/2013

It means that you are so damn hot even old ladies get all horny when looking at you. As soon as she saw you her pussy trembled and all these nasty, dirty thoughts popped into her mind. Being a good Catholic, however, she quickly had to absolve herself of her sexual sins.

[quote]OP may be an EST.

Ya think?

It's the "hissing elder" troll with a new tale.

We understand these posts are intended to become DL classics, but they lack the spontaneity and verisimilitude to really catch on and stick.

I do think it says a lot that the OP fantasizes, at his mere appearance, that complete strangers hiss and bless themselves against evil.

by Anonymousreply 5911/09/2013

You people need to be more open to cultural diversity.

Many older Italian, Spanish and Latin American women do this when passing by a church.

In the extremely unlikely event that this happened, OP likely was passing by a church, saw Filomena, and made it all about him.

by Anonymousreply 6011/09/2013

R60, OP specifically said that the old lady made the sign of the cross as she looked directly at him, as she was standing at the bus stop.

So, it's not all about your efforts to appear culturally diverse, either.

by Anonymousreply 6111/09/2013

Well, if she'd said "Zape gato Satanás, vete de aqui y no vuelvas más", then this Eucharistically Symbolic Turn of events would be clearer. in the parallel universe where it actually happened.

Upshot, if you ever do see an older ethnic woman cross herself on the ain't about you.

@R57 hilarious... notice how so many of them have area rugs hanging from their WALLS?

R15, something similar happened to me in a Borders bathroom years ago. This little girl was running around the store being obnoxious. I went to the ladies room and she came running in as I was washing my hands. She scrunched her face up into a mean scowl and started saying nasty things to me. Then she yelled, "you stink!" I didn't but she was just being a bitch. Finally, I looked at her with the scariest expression I could muster and I said, "you know what happens to your mother when you step on a crack, don't you? She dies." Dumbfounded, she ran back to her mother.

by Anonymousreply 6611/25/2013

r57 her again. I figured that was Cheryl with the life sized fish.
