Top Definition
An outcounter is when you encounter someone outside of the context in which you know them. The severity of an outcounter can range from a relatively benign run-in with your librarian at the grocery store to more disturbing experiences such as running into your girlfriend's father in the adult video store. Outcounters provoke a sense of the uncanny, a "crashing of worlds", a decentering of perspectives.
Dude 1: Dude, you'll never guess who I had an outcounter with last night at the movies.

Dude 2: Uh oh, ..dude...who?

Dude 1: My boss. I was totally stoned and bumped into him - spilling my popcorn - awkward chit chat ensued. It was extraordinarily obvious that I was high.

Dude 2: Bummer, dude. What an outcounter! So much for that raise.
