I've only had 1 sighting, and that was when I was in Ithaca, NY (Mr.Toast). I complimented the guy on his shirt even though I have a strict no talking to strangers policy
I am in WA now and I guess I don't get out enough cause no sightings. I have to report a suspected inverse sighting though, I took my lil' bro to UW and a girl saw me and seriously smiled, my bro asked me if I knew her, I didn't. I suspect she knew my shirt (Angry Day)

I was just about to put on my Angry Day for the Bloomsburg Fair. Was planning to go to the Big E this week, too-will have to pick a different woot shirt for there, since Angry Day has already been spotted

I saw Strike! the other day on the VCU campus. The guy was carrying his bike inside so I didn't say anything.

Now this is cool. I am glad that yelling "woot shirt" to strangers doesn't make them angry, but instead makes them smile. Now that I have confirmation that people like it, I'm going to keep doing it.

By the way, support groups are for those who want to change their lifestyle. Woot shirts aren't nearly bad enough to start one of those.

I think I saw M.C. Escher: Space Planner for Hire at Urbana, IL a few minutes ago! We drove by him and I screamed "Woot shirt!" So we went around again to make sure it was the shirt, but still couldn't tell. As we were only a block away from home, we parked, and went out to greet the guy and make sure. He was gone, I think he hid.

Oh Well! :D It was still neat for me.

I believe that kind of behavior is also called stalking

....but I do admire your commitment to confirming the sighting!

This is a conversation that happened in Chinatown today:

Boyfriend: Did you see that girl?!
Me: No, I was looking at the guy's shirt.
Boyfriend: You and shirts, man. You're missing the forest for the trees.

If I had been on my A game, I would have responded "Don't you mean the tees?" Alas, llo.

I just started as a freshman at Stanford, and I've already seen one guy with two woot shirts.

Complex Simplicity: http://shirt.woot.com/Friends.aspx?k=4895
Circuit-ulatory System: http://shirt.woot.com/Friends.aspx?k=6032

If you're that person... *waves* :P I haven't said anything yet, but perhaps you saw me wearing Ain't No Party Like a Boston Party and F5 Refreshes You.

For better or worse, this is true. I hear that a lot actually. Thanks for advertising it in some good markets though!

Second confirmed sighting!! I saw Autumn Breeze yesterday at the BSU Rec Center. I would have said something, but I was upstairs finishing my workout and didn't want to bother you.

While wearing my No Pun Intended shirt, I spotted a girl wearing Finding Technicolor on the third floor of the Education building at the University of New Orleans. We had a very brief conversation about how many shirt.woots we each had, I believe she had more. If you are out there, kudos on the out wooting me. Oh yeah, and Hi, my name is Stephen, we did not properly introduce ourselves as I had a class I was already kind of late for.

walking out of a tiny used bookstore I saw a guy wearing "Road Closed". Very exiting, I told him I loved his shirt, and I had a whole collection of my own. His responses was "Woot!" I would have been wearing my new When Life Gives You Lemons shirt, but it was the day of the Boise State-Oregon Game, so I was wearing my team colors. Lemons, unfortunately, is Oregon's colors, so wearing it that day was out of the question.

Saw two today, on the set of the movie Taking Woodstock. Doctor Wow was on a set guy, and Global Warming Isn't So Bad was on a fellow extra. But I am shy and I didn't say anything. Perhaps next time I'll make a move.

I was in my Computer Science class at MSU today and as we were leaving, I saw someone wearing, I think it was Friendly Forest. Didn't get a chance to say anything though, because by the time I saw it, I had already grabbed the exam practice problems and left.

awesome! My brother in law goes there... well, actually, he's staff now, he just got his masters. he works in the physics department. But it probably wasn't him you saw, he just got his first woot shirts with the last batch of randoms. I'm not going to school at the moment, so it's also unlikely that it was me. ah well. Go Broncos!

Today, Saturday, September 26, at the Sweet Tomato in Addison, Texas, saw a guy wearing The Television Will Not Be Revolutionized. I was wearing Swim, Little Nessie. Actually talked to him. He said he didn't really read the forums and stuff, so I told him about our DFW Shirt.Woot gathering on October 26. His wife (girlfriend?) said she had the grilled cheese sandwhich shirt and she would wear that.

if it's like the Sweet Tomato in Oregon, it's great if you have a salad craving. Get a giant salad piled high with tasty salad goodies. Their pasta is a waste of stomach space. Their soups are hit and miss. The blueberry muffins are killlller.

I've had two sightings recently. At work the other night a customer wearing "New Kid in Town" buying a gallon of paint" I was at the self checkout and said "Hey, I like your shirt" Hope your project comes out well.

And then again at the Michigan Renaissance Festival yesterday a woman walked by wearing "Oh, Burned!" I was wearing "Fall" which didn't print as beautifully as the original design but is still worth having. I'll have to post pictures if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

Woo Hoo! I had my first Woot shirt sighting in the wild today! YEAH! I was pretty bummed last week when I spotted a Threadless shirt on someone but had yet to see a Woot shirt. Today a guy in my Calc class walked in with (W)right Angle on! I even said something when he came and sat behind me...probably would not have if he hadn't sat so close. We chatted for a minute and I should be seeing more Woot shirts on him since he said he had around ten. I had on Stuffed Dragon (recently got through a trade).

I hope at some point a person will spot me. I wear t-shirts five days a week at least (student and the government doesn't make me dress up for my job with them) and since I didn't have t-shirts before joining Woot all my t-shirts pretty much are Woot shirts.

Yes! Finally!
While checking out of the hotel/house on Martha's Vineyard, MA this morning, I saw a guy wearing Rocky Raccoon, aka Midnight Rider by our talented Mr Cho!

Being a hardcore Wooter, I actually did point and yell out WOOT SHIRT!!!!
The entire family stopped and looked at me and I once again yelled WOOT SHIRT!
Luckily for me, the guy was a wooter and so were his kids!
I had on a woot shirt too, Cool Breeze.
We took a picture and talked about the frustration of having a derby favorite not make it and the joy of having a derby favorite get a second chance.


It almost made up for 5 days of rain on a 7 day vacation. Almost.
Heck, it made up for at least two days of rain!

I also receive positive comments on Cool Breeze and Zombie Garden from random strangers this week.




MV woot guy, if you see this and want the picture, just PM me and tell me where we were, and I'll send it to you!
(In case you don't post, PM is the send message under my screen name, you find the answer by checking the Private Message under the shirt.woot! on the top of the page.)

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!
No greater love is lost than that not shared.

I did better I than I'd hoped at the local Oktoberfest last saturday.

First I spotted a guy in The Early Worm Gets The Bird. After I had confirmed the woot shirt with him I was able to employ my contingency plan- I was wearing F5 Refreshes You as an undershirt. Pulling my polo up in front of a stranger is creepy in retrospect but he seemed to approve of my shirt selection. :P

Later I was surprised to see a guy wearing Friends Are Forever under a sweatshirt- you could see just enough for a wooter to identify it but I opted not to bug him.

-I saw Hungry Bento on a guy a few weeks back-it looked really neat!
-The funniest spot that I've been a part of was last Thursday. We were explaining what woot was (and subsequently shirt.woot) when a guy walked by wearing Circuit-ulatory System. My bf pointed as he passed by and said "and that's where that guy got his shirt". The guy stopped, turned around, and said "Yep, woot". It was a really nice coincidence.
-My bf and a friend were spotted at the Cold Stone near campus by one of the employees there on Monday. I wasn't wearing a woot shirt unfortunately so I have still yet to be spotted.

Went to lunch at Sweet Melissa's in Laramie, Wyo last week and besides my own Woot shirt (Wormhole Republic) there were two other folks in the restaurant wearing Woot shirts (Angry Day & The Cake is a Liar). Three days later I'm in the Student Union of the University of Wyoming and I see Angry Day (on a different guy) and When Life Gives You Lemons. In Laramie in the last few months I've also seen Who Says Global Warming is Bad, Plan B and Irony. Little Laramie seems to be a Woot mecca of sorts.

Two more woot sightings on KSU campus. One wearing Tin Man I said "woot!", he laughed. The second wearing Strike! who ignored my "woot!" or didn't hear me. :/
