Tolleson, AZ

today is the second time i have ran into marilyn. funny i didnt know what she was all about, i figured she was just a rude crazy lady. i first meet marilyn when she stoped by my print shop in tolleson,az. she came in and just sat down calmly asking one of my employes for the owner or manager of the shop. i was busy on the phone, but could tell right off this wasnt going to be a ordinary customer. she came in with a black suitcase and had papers pinned to the front and back of her cloths. i tried not to look or mention them i was really busy and did not have time for a lony story. she had asked if i can donate some copies for her, she was very polite and did not need much. but my copier was actually out of service and i was waiting for the repair man to show up. she took it as if i was being racist and started to get upset. i tried to explain to here, but she wouldnt have it and stormed of calling all of us rascit and called our print shop a ugly house lol. we all didnt know what to think and it was soon forgoten... 2 days later i take my suv to get a flat fixed at the tire shop right down the street from my print shop, which is also right next door to the greyhound station! so im sitting inside whating for my truck to be repaird, and in walks marilyn with her suitcase and sits down next to me... i was like wow i cant believe this and i try to pretend to be busy on my phone to avoid her. that worked for about 30 sec. she started talking to the owners in the office which know me, so im brought into there conversation about the weather, and how the greyhound next door is being rude to her and kicked her out. she asked if one of them could accompany her next door to the greyhound for moral support... they of course declined cause they where the only ones there and she looks at me with this huge smile and ask me... having to clue at all she had meet me 2 days prior and called racist and other sorts... i was speechless and didnt know what to say! so of course i said yes, for reasons i have to clue why. so we walked down the street. she told me so was from flordia orginally and was spreading her word and protesting something that happen to her. after she told me that i decided to not ask any more questions. we arrived at the grey hound and walked in, the woman behind the counter was rude selling her a ticket to casa grande, az for 21.50. they argued back and forth because marylin was not sure if she was going to leave on sunday or monday. this sunday is the july 4th , so she tried to explain to marliyn there where closed. after about 5mins or so i told marliyn the ticket is good for monday also which would be july 5. so she got her ticket and we walked out. she told me thank you and handed me the paper to read. one for me and 2 for the tire shop and also told me to publish it in the paper...all i said was ok and good luck in casa grande. i then walked back to the tire shop and told them about this lady and how she was so rude to me the other day. they laughed and said sorry they had no idea and asked my why i took her to the greyhound. which i had to response except, i could not say no to her with that big smile. as i was leaving the tire shop i gave them the letter which they started to read and could not make any sence out of it. so i looked at mine i was intrigued by raft 2257 and microwave technology 6677.. so i googled it which lead me to this site of course lol wow. its pretty amazing and intresting i think. so casa grande look out marilyn gibbs is on the way leaving tolleson az. by grey hound on july 6... good luck on your trip marilyn...
