So, yesterday, I go to try and see this show, I thought it started at 6 so my friend and I show up and there is a guy sitting on the steps. I ask him why he's there and had the show not started yet. He said, Â "no not til 7." Â So we start talking and he's keeps asking meÂ whatÂ my profession is.Â FinallyÂ he asks, "are youÂ HollywoodÂ cause you lookÂ Hollywood?" Â He keeps talking and as he's telling me all about his life i'm thinking man this guy is so interesting, look at his face you can see his whole life in the wrinkles and his eyes are have so much pain in them. " I felt like he just wanted someone to listen so i did. My friend wasn't as interested I was and I Â could feel her shifting as he kept talking. Â After a little while I felt like something was weird. I asked" wouldn't someone be here to set up by now?" He said "oh yeah" as my friendÂ noticedÂ people walking in another door. Â He said "thanks forÂ listeningÂ to me, you're very calm and I don't get that a lot. "
As we walkedÂ towardsÂ the other door my friend and I realized that the show had been going on and he had tricked us.
He came walking in behind me and I asked "did you trick me?" He said" no no but thank you for listening to me, you made my whole day."
We laughed and I knew he had just worked me. But you know what? I didn't care. I said to my friend "no one ever listens to that guy, otherwise why would he have to lie and manipulate? I said" call me crazy, but that' s who I am I'd rather lend an ear to that guy and give him some comfort even if he is trying to work me."
I win in the end anyway.
