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.
Those Sicknesses Out There
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.
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.
The guy just wants to borrow some golf clubs, what's the big deal? The big deal is that a single club can cost a couple of hundred bucks. An entire set is going to be a grand at least, and for someone that just wants to play around with a bud, that's not worth it.
A set of old Wilsons is fine for almost everybody – except for this guy's friend, who went on a tirade about Wilson, even going all the way back to “Castaway,” which prominently features a piece of Wilson gear. Well, it's Wilson or nothing, buster.
That's Not How Money Works
Let's see if we can get this straight. White owes Blue a hundred and fifty big ones, and Blue just wants the money back. Even getting a little bit back would be nice. And then White tries a very strange and also very stupid tactic, which is to offer work to Blue that would earn him not even the amount that he is owed.
That would, we will point out, not be White paying Blue back. That will be Blue earning his own money. You know that we know that, and Blue knows that, but White must have missed the memo.
