You guys like story yeah? Let uncle Ry tell you a story, there's a lesson to learn here kids. Pay attention. I wanna talk about this now because last week was my birthday and it reminded me of this story, its related to a birthday gift. The gift was Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii. This story happened a few years ago.
This is a picture of me playing the Nintendo Wii, I love my Wii. Had lots of great times on it playing games like Smash Brothers and Mario Kart and Twilight Princess, and a game I really loved called Super Mario Galaxy. The story takes place around 2009? A couple of years after the Wii came out. So one day a friend of mine Matt messaged me telling me he got a Wii, I thought great, about time he got a Wii. So I congratulated him, then he asked the question. :I He asked whether he can borrow some games and I was like 'HMMMMMMMM SHIT'. Well Matt is a nice guy, pretty honest and pretty generous. I usually am pretty generous too but when it comes to games, I hate lending it out to people. Because:1)
They might lose it. 2)
They might scratch the disc. 3)
I might forget to ask for it back knowing my potato brain memory.
So I pretended to be nice and asked him which game he wanted to borrow. He says Super Mario Galaxy, to which I thought 'DANG IT! I really like that game and dont wanna lend it out!'. So I had to come up with some excuse... what should I say...? And then I remembered something about that game, it was a gift for my birthday! YEAH there you go! I will just tell him its a gift and has sentimental value so I won't lend out that game for that reason. I wasn't lying either! To which I thought 'SMART THINKING RY!'. So I put on a sad face and said to Matt "yeah... look im sorry man.. the thing about super mario galaxy is that.. well it was a gift for my birthday. and so this game has more sentimental value than anything, something a friend bought for me with their own hard earned money. Showing their love for me, and I love them too. i treasure it so much that everytime play it I think of them. its not that I don't trust you but its just that this game is our symbolic testimony of our eternal friendship. So sorry man I can't lend you this game"
.. to which I thought to myself "NAILED IT!"
Matt didn't reply me for a bit, I thought maybe he was disappointed or something, then he replied saying "I was that friend who bought you Super Mario Galaxy for your birthday.".
SHHHHIIIIT! I totally forgot Matt was the friend who gave me that game!
OMG RY VALUE MY FRIEND'S FRIENDSHIP MY BUTT!
At that point I just wanted to find a rock and hide under it. You have no idea how embarrassed I was. And then he said "Yeah don't worry about it
I will buy the game myself, its not too expensive." ......... Dude I felt bad. I was horyble. :I
So there you go kids. Don't lie. Be generous. And most importantly remember who gave you what presents. Don't be a douche bag. Dont be like me. I learnt it the hard way. FML
