Day 47: Two rejections

Will: I hopped in an Uber with my roommate and her girlfriend on the way to a show and met a really cool driver. He was a middle aged Malaysian man who was enjoying joking around with us. Unfortunately, my roommate was late to her appointment and the driver was literally going 20 mph on a major arteriole. In addition, he was pretty spooked by the police officers driving next to him which further hindered his driving. I said, “Hey buddy, if you want me to drive at any point, just let me know.” He laughed and about 5 minutes later, I reiterated the request, “Do you want me to drive for a bit?” “Sure!” He said while still driving. I said, “Cool, so feel free to pull over wherever and I’ll take over.” He looked at me without seeing the joking smile he had hoped for before saying, “Uhhh… maybe next time.” I was so close!!!

Gil: I noticed an unusually big crowd inside of Comix Experience tonight as I walked by and decided to go in to check what was going on inside. There was some exhibit featuring some rad raunchy art. After perusing the art, I heard a couple laughing while huddled around a comic book. I interrupted them and asked if they could read it out loud to me. They ignored me and continued reading to themselves in silence.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
