Obligatory this didn't happen today, it was about 10 years ago when I was 19. So I had a friend that was a pretty shady guy but a good friend nonetheless, we'd known each other all through high school, we sorta went our separate ways after graduation but would occasionally call just to check in or go to a party together.
So one day he calls me out of the blue and he says "hey man I'm in a tight spot do you have a onion I can buy real quick" I look in the fridge and say "yea I've got 4 how many do you need?" he says "damn bro I didn't know you had it like that, I need one for now but might need more later how much you gonna charge me" I tell him just give me a dollar and he gets super excited like "hell yea man you've always been a good friend bro" he says he'll be there in 30 minutes and we hang up.
Of course I'm thinking why tf is he so excited about a fucking onion... Whatever maybe he's making meatloaf and forgot to buy onions. So he pulls up 30 minutes later and I go outside with the onion in my hand feeling pretty good about helping my friend out. He flips tf out like "WTF IS THIS!! ARE YOU TRYNA RIP ME OFF!! ARE YOU A FUCKING FED!! I'm standing there confused as fuck" bro you said you wanted a damn onion what's the problem" at that point I think he realized what was happening and says "fuck you bro you wasting my time" and speeds off.
Still in a state of shock I go in the house thinking maybe he want a different type of onion than the one I had. I call my dad and explain the weirdness of what just happened he laughs for a good 10 minutes straight TURNS OUT a "onion" is a unit of measurement for cocaine and "a dollar" in that context means a hundred dollars which is way below the market value. Who knew? Never talked to or heard from him again (he's in prison now)
Anyway there must be something about my demeanor that screams drug dealer because all throughout my adult life people have just assumed I had drugs for sale, especially at parties but sometimes just randomly on the street. It's weird af but I've just gotten used to it at this point. I remember some really old guy when I was 11-12yo telling me I'd make a good drug dealer something about his seriousness and tone made it seem almost like a prophecy and it stuck with me.
Tldr: my drug dealing friend wanted to buy an onion, he meant drugs I thought he meant an actual onion.
EDIT: so to answer a few questions...
My dad knew because of he grew up in the projects of LA he has MS now so he'... keep reading on reddit ➡
That's right. Salt and vinegar are the superior chip. Sour cream & onion chips just have an overly sweet yet salty taste that is just overwhelmingly disgusting. Barbecue chips leave your mouth feeling dry and bitter because of the awful taste. Salt and vinegar are just a perfect combination of flavors that is just overall better than other chips.
