Towel baby Couple and teddy Bear lady

Hello,
This is a wierd question, but has anyone ever seen the couple at the GF who carry around a towel and think it is their baby. They usually eat at 1900 Park Fare and we have seen them on 3 different trips. The waitress told us all about them. They are very wealthy and stay at the GF all the time. They bring this towel with them everywhere, and it has a baby hat on it. The woman makes the chef bring out food for the "baby" and she pretends to feed it, and then hides the food and pretends the baby ate it. The staff caters to them b/c they literally stay at the hotel for a month at a time. We don't know if both the man and the woman think it's a baby, or if the husband just goes along with it.
Also, there is a woman at the GF who brings tons of teddy bears with her, and sets them all up around her in the lobby. The staff said she comes every day, but doesn't stay there. My dad asked her if she won them all, and she replied that they were her children. Let me know if anyone else has seen them

Yikes. Sounds like the kind of people they ask the neighbors about on the local news after something horrible happens.

"They seemed harmless..."

"They pretty much kept to themselves..."

There used to be a long running towel baby thread on a college program board I used to visit. The stories are really strange. I never saw them on my CP, but there were plenty of people posting their stories. What was weird was the change in story by the "mother" - there were posts about how she'd insist that CMs treat the towel as a real baby, and many CPs were given a heads up when they started that she'd throw a fit if you treated it as anything but a child. I mean, get really offended if you didn't acknowledge the child. But then I remember a couple of reports where people said they'd gotten the heads up and when they went to "speak" to the "child" the woman would look at them like they're crazy and say, "it's just a towel!" and get all offended.

So I don't know what's up. Sounds like they can't make up their own minds on what this thing is!

Question

Wow. I work in healthcare and it sounds like one of our good ol' schizophrenic or multiple personality patients. Or the alzheimer/dementia ones. ::Shrug::

Sad, really.

But funny too.....

We saw them a few times, and I swear the next time I saw her, the towel was bigger. We were wondering if it keeps getting bigger like a real baby. Did it start off as a wash cloth, then a hand towel, then a bath towel? I wanted to follow them around just to watch. We saw them in the park once walking around, and we wondered if they tried to put it on rides and stuff. We look for them every time, but I haven't seen them since a year or two ago.

To surprise you, I work at Publix part time and there is an elderly woman I work with who takes the free balloons home all the time. She has at any moment 100 or so. She cuddles with the ones at work and calls them her babies. It's kinda cute.

Cool

It sounds like two pscychiatric hospitals are missing some patients.


I really shouldn't make light of this because I know that mental disorders are a very serious subject matter. If anyone wishes to learn more about them then please take a Abnormal Psychology class at your local community college.
