Yes, there are still colds and the flu and things like that going around. This interaction certainly isn’t the worst thing on this list, but it still gets off on the wrong foot. Blue lists off a bunch of symptoms, with White asking to hold off on a diagnosis to see if it might be a false positive, something that we’ve all dealt with.
But, quickly, Blue comes back with the fact that he or she is unable to even rise out of bed. This isn’t a false positive, bucko. It’s a real, actual positive.
A Very Loose Definition of “Problem”
Maybe you have some artist friends. Maybe you're an artist friend yourself. Maybe you sculpt or paint or write poetry or bake or design custom refrigerator paint jobs. If you do that last one, hit us up. Maybe you or your friends have some stories about people who want free artwork without having to pony up the cash.
Pretty much everybody who is in that sort of trade has a story like this one, where someone is totally amazed that you would ask for money. This one goes above and beyond by saying Blue has a “problem.”
Generous but With a Spine
This guy seems like a good lad – giving away his old stuff without asking for anything in return. First, it was a fully-functioning TV, next it was a vivarium used to hold animals like fish or lizards. As you can see, he could have gotten a good amount from these into his pocket, but no, he just gave them away.
Both times, the person he gifted the object to came back with a request. First for money for a remote, second for the lights to go above a vivarium. Come on, people. Just be happy with what you're getting already.
Money for Nothing
If a friend messaged you saying he was broke, what would you do? There are probably some people that would say tough luck, but there might be some that are willing to pony up a little bit of cash to make sure he stays safe. But what if he was just going to use it to hit the bar?
The number of people who would be willing to help would drops dramatically. The person on the right even says that he'd be willing to buy his bud some food, but no, the bud doesn't want that. He wants to have a night out.
Things Have Value
Phones change hands a lot these days, and we're sure we don't have to tell you why. They're critical to keeping up with friends and family, they let you learn about the news of the world, they let you use things like Doordash or Uber, and there's a lot more they can do. Like minesweeper.
Even the simplest, most basic smartphones are worth far more than forty dollars, but this guy was trying really hard to find a deal. A little too hard, unfortunately. He picked a mark that wasn't willing to part with his cell for less than half a G.
