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.
The Perils of Hooping
Two buds want to get up to some ball, but one of them doesn't want to have to bike to the court. He asks his friend (in white) to drive him, but White says he doesn't want to spend the extra money on gas. The friend in black takes umbrage with this as if gas was free and you could just have as much of it as you want anywhere.
White kind of goes off on his friend at the end there, and we can't say it wasn't warranted. If you're asking your friends for something, you have to accept that they might say no.
The Dangers of the Marketplace
Selling something on Facebook Marketplace can net you some sweet cash or a nice item at a reduced price, but you might also find people who aren't happy that they're missing out on something that could have been theirs. Aiden here gets quite a bit heated when he finds out that a reclining loveseat has gone to someone else, even though he was interested.
He cusses out the person that was trying to get rid of the piece of furniture, which makes the “seller” happy he didn't help out Aiden. Remember everybody, you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.
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.
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.
