Something I used to do at a previous blog was a theme I called “Don’t be that guy” and since I enjoyed doing it so much, I’ve brought it here. Why? Because not being “that guy” will 100% fit in with the goals of this site… because this site is against douchebaggery in all of its various incarnations.
And what a fine first example! Folks, if you were to hear of someone being super drunk and calling up 911 numerous times claiming to either being beaten or shot at… but actually just wanted a ride to another bar… do you think he would look like the eternally classy Cary Grant (pictured here)? Or maybe… just on an off-chance… he might look a little like this? Not that I would judge a book by its cover or a super-sketchy dude with greasy hair by his facial tattoos. Not me.
And really? You thought you could somehow fool the police into taking you to another bar by saying you were being shot at? How exactly was that conversation going to play out? “Officer… these dudes… I think they were ninjas or something… they were all shootin’ at me and I was all like… POW! BAM! And totally dodging bullets… and so now if you could just take me to Louie’s Pub, I would be totally stoked. For reals.”
Life is a right pageant, people. Never forget it.
