We’ve all had those days when we’re just too bored to do anything. They might not happen as much once you hit adulthood (kids – celebrate being bored), but they can still happen. No work, no bills, no projects around the house. You could read or watch Netflix, or you could listen to your friend put up an above-ground swimming pool. If you don’t have to help, what’s the problem?
You can listen to him grumble about looking for tools, wonder if you have enough space, and talk about all the fun he’s going to have when people come over for pool parties. It’s kind of like a podcast in a way. You aren’t part of the conversation, but the conversation is going on. Or maybe it’s like ‘Mukbang’, except putting up a pool.
That Won't Have Any Ramifications
We all send jokes to our friends that we'd never send to a parent, or boss, or a cop step-uncle. Just as an example. Sending something that could very easily be interpreted as threatening to a cop that you know might be one of the unluckiest things that can happen, even if it's easily cleared up.
Ever been tased? It isn't pleasant. We haven't been tased either, but it's not great, clearly. Still much better than pepper spray we hear, which just gets everywhere. And you have to, like, wash your eyes out with milk. Really, tasers are the more humane choice. There's a sentence we didn't expect.
Not the Response He Was Expecting
For clarification, the boss's name isn't Brenda — “Boss” was right below “Brenda.” Full disclosure: we found this story on the internet and there's a heavy chance that it's untrue somewhat or completely. The full story is much longer and quite a bit more involved than we can relate here, and it has quite a number of twists and turns.
Could it be true? Yes. Is it for certain? No. Especially if you take into account the rest of the story, which is a bit blue.
We've Cracked the Code
Here's a handy tip for people out there: we don't use names that much. How often do you really refer to your friends, while speaking to them, but their names, real or nicknames? This person tried to be clever about it, but if she included her best friend's name inside a text to her best friend, it was a trick. It's like when you're watching something where someone is talking on the phone, and calls the person on the other line “sis” or something like that.
Odds are this was intended for the person telling the story, and he, like so many guys, needed to be told outright that the texter had a crush on him. Life is short people, don't waste it on being coy.
Yup, Totally on Accident
First things first: we don't really think you got that text by accident, buddy. Even if it was an accident, it's a very sweet thing to say and seems to mean good things for this relationship if that's the response to the first date. Gals have some tactics for letting you know really subtly how they feel about you, but this one is a bit more direct. Sometimes that is what guys need.
We can be a bit oblivious to small gestures unless we're looking for them. If you like a guy, here's how to get his attention: put one hand on the top of his head, the other under his chin, look him directly in the eyes, and tell him you like him. That should work.
