My Neighbour Errol: Too Polite?
Friday night. Errol and I are playing Tomb Raider. Errol arrives at 11pm. I have a train to catch the next morning, but I figure I can do an hour of video gaming no problem…
Me: (hmmm…I wonder what time it is)
Errol: (explores every nook and cranny of the shanty town we have just decimated single handedly)
Me: (maybe I’ll go check the time)
Errol: (continues to get Lara Croft to leap around like a gazelle)
Me: (looks at phone) Um…Errol?
Me: It’s 2am…
Errol: (without taking eyes off screen) Ya, I know.
Me: You know?
Errol: (actually taking the hint) Oh, do you want me to go?
Manda’s logical brain: Why yes I do. This has been fun, but I have to get up early tomorrow and I’ve lost enough sleep as it is. Plus it’s really freaking late! But thanks for coming over!
Manda’s fear of offending everybody brain: DON’T BE RUDE! HE’S YOUR GUEST!
Manda’s stupid video game/friend hang-out loving brain: TOMB RAIIDEERRR!
Manda’s mouth: Um…no, it’s okay.
Errol: Okay! (goes back to playing)
This. This is why I deserve pity from no one.
To be fair, he DID leave a few minutes later :D.
