Bathrobed in public

Have you ever played the “one-up” game? You know the one I mean where one person tells a story, then the next person tells a similar story, just a little more interesting. Sometimes the game is played intentionally, but more commonly, the game is unintentional. The other day Camm unintentionally (I think) one-upped me.
I had to go to the doctor for some kind of allergic rash I had all over my body (we’ll talk about that later). While I was in the waiting room trying to keep Ruby entertained, I saw a girl pass by wearing a bathrobe. Now, I’m the sort of person who thinks nothing of running to the store in pajama bottoms, but a bathrobe? That seemed even too extreme for my fashion sense. I chalked it up to the fact that she was probably sick and that was that.
When I got home I told Camm and asked him if he has ever gone anywhere in public with a bathrobe on.
That’s where the one-upping game came into play.
Camm: When I was on my mission I was in the parking lot of a Pit BBQ take-out place (this is in TN). All of the sudden I see a man get out of his car and order his pit BBQ in only a bathrobe.
Me: Oh yeah (I am mildly amused)
Camm: Yeah, you wanna see a picture? (my interest suddenly grows)

I’m not sure which is funnier—that Camm saw this guy, or that he took a picture of this guy. Either way, Camm sure one-upped me.

Can anyone one-up Camm?
