Meeting your Brother/Sister/Sorors somewhere you didn't expect

This will be much like the thread where did you see your letters where you didn't expect, except that it will be meeting another member/alum.

I have two stories to get us started.

I went to Tulane/Loyola University for my Spring Break Mission Trip. When we were passing out fliers for a church I saw girls wearing my sorority's shirts. They were from Georgia Southern and were there for a different Spring Break Mission Trip. I didn't get to do the grip with them, but I REALLY wish I had. I now want to meet another sister that I can do the grip with before I graduate college.

The second story is much better. One of my sisters stood up and told us this at chapter. She visited Orlando Studios in Florida for Spring Break. When she went she wore our sorority t-shirt. She "met" Betty Boop and Betty Boop asked my sister where she went to school. She told her and made other small talk. As my sister turned to leave, Betty Boop went to shake my sisters hand. My sister was very confused, until she realized that Betty Boop was doing our grip!!! Betty Boop wasn't allowed to break character to say she was a member of our sorority, and that way she didn't. It was such a neat story to hear!!!

My last trip to the emergency room, I made a joke about the surgery scars on my abdomen forming an anchor, but that it was okay because it was my sorority's symbol.

One of the doctors was also a DG.

Yesterday at Drum Corps International in Atlanta, my friends and I were sitting one row behind our seats. Two of us were wearing SAI shirts. I was not, because I was supporting my section that has three members in corps. Well, a girl behinds us asks if the two wearing shirts are sisters. Our immediate reaction is to say no, as they had been asked this prior to joining SAI anyway. They look a little alike. Then we catch on and tell her all three of us our members. She is from Jacksonville, if I remember correctly.

I went into the Apple store today because my phone case broke. I was looking at cases when one of the sales associates came over and we started talking about certain cases (and I was starting to wonder if she was Greek...) when she noticed the letters on my shirt, and immediately said "You're a KD? Me too!" I was really surprised and excited (as was she) because there are so few chapters in New England, so it's very rare to see our letters. We ended up chatting for a good 10-15 minutes!

My junior/senior year in college, I was in physical therapy on a recommendation of my physiatrist. I was sitting in the waiting room wearing a set of Phi Sigma Pi letters. One of the therapists (not mine) greeted me, gave me the fraternal grip and said, "I thought I saw a brother out here." She was from Tau chapter.

I was teaching a class at a police academy and met an AGD from my chapter! Unfortunately, we also met 3 weeks later when some idiot driver rammed my car. (Her car was damaged worse than mine.) Heather was the officer on the scene.

I met another Chi O in Qdoba the other day. I had a XO shirt on, and her baby was all decked out in owl gear. She was super nice and said she was glad to see other XO's out and about!

I was a big creep and said hi to a sister who was wearing letters at the gym while she was on the treadmill. Looking back I was probably a little too excited, but she was very nice about it, lol

No great stories like you guys, but recently I went for a run in the morning and took a different route (I'm a night runner, and usually go to the track). Two blocks in a soror spots me from wearing an SGRho tshirt - we did a community service project together a couple months ago, turns out she lives around the corner from me!

I was at Nordstrom's shoe shopping with letters on and 3 women in their 50s saw me in the store. It turns out they are sisters that travel to a different place every year and were on vacation.

Oh, I can't believe I forgot this one! When I was a new sister, I was with my big in St. Louis on a trip for a collegiate conference. Two women stopped us and asked if we were sisters, because we had on letters. It turn out they had pledged in the 1930s!

I'm a Freshman at AU and I pledged "Fraternity A" over the summer. I live in an off campus apartment and the first day I moved in was around lunch time. My roommate and I drove to a place in Auburn to grab a bite to eat, and as we sat down with our orders we started to talk about how much we were looking forward to participating in Greek Life (he pledged a different fraternity over the summer). We mentioned our fraternities by name, and behind my friend was a group of kids. They had overheard our conversation, and in mid-sentence, I see three of the kids from the other table just look at me with huge smiles. I was really confused, and a bit creeped out (haha), and they said "hey kid, do you go to AU?" I replied, "Ya. I'm going to be a freshman in the fall." They then said, "we're really sorry, but we overheard some of your conversation and you're not gonna believe this, we are all going to be sophomores in "Fraternity A."

Who would've thunk it, right?
