So went to the arcade today as I had some spare time from work, playing IIDX when one of the local passes by and stops to watch. After I finish playing he comes up and says something to the effect of…
“That was amazing, can we be friends?”
I thought he was joking.
M: “uh, yeah, sure I guess.”
R: “Can I have your number then so we can talk later?”
UHHHHH. What is happening to me right now. I dont even. This would have been a prime time to pickpocket me because I was so fucking confused as to what was happening.
M: “uh.. you can have my skype?”
Oh god what the fuck am I even saying. I just got played. This is like when you go to the market and they say £10, you say £5 and they agree to give it to you for £7 when the item only costs £2. It was like being assaulted by Derren Brown doing a documentary on psychology. I’ve definitely seen this shit somewhere in a textbook, ask something so ridiculous that they try to compromise by giving what you actually want. Goddamnit.
R: “Yeah cool, whats your name”
< gives stranger skype name >
R: “Do you play league of legends?”
WELL THAT WAS A TANGENT.
M: “yeah, I used to play a lot, not so much now though”
R: “Can you carry me? Im bronze 3”
Who even announces that? If i was bronze 3 i’d be like ‘NAW I AINT EVEN PLAY LEAGUE, FUCK THAT GAME’
And so, here I am, with some guy called Ace on my skype friends list. I’m still not entirely sure what happened.
