    I can sort of read German so I don’t see the issue!!

    If it’s any consolation I wrote a horrible sci fi novel when I was 14 that is a weird, plagiarized amalgamation of battle angel Alita, the matrix, and the film Aeon Flux. Then my parents were like “oh my god our teenage daughter is a prodigy” (false) and had it COPYRIGHTED.

    There is one hardcopy and when my friends and I get drunk we read from it sometimes. It is hilarious and bad.

    Goddamn, man child Prestigious

    I was a huge plagiarizer as a youth. I stole the plot of Ella enchanted when I was like ten and then stole a clockwork Orange when I was in hs. Also have a home video where we plagiarized Scream.

    I had to take my car in for a repair this morning and throughout the day have been thinking about how it might be time to get something with a lower monthly payment. So as I pick it up from service, I decide to walk over to sales to see what a trade in would look like.

    So I’m sitting there at this guy’s desk and we’re sorta spinning each other’s wheels (pun intended) about what type of vehicle I’d be looking at trading for. He starts asking for some of my info to take down so naturally I give him a fake name, phone number, and email, because like screw this guy we haven’t talked about anything real and he doesn’t need it and I know he just wants to hound me every day for the next 6 months. Anyway, a few minutes pass and he’s like “hey just in case you’re looking to flat out sell it instead of trade, let me introduce you to the guy here that does that.” So I sit there while he goes to get the dude.

    He comes back, dudeless, and is like “so the guy isn’t here I guess he’ll be back on Monday. Uhhhh. Uhhhh. Lemme text you his name and info/hours real quick”. He whips out his personal cell phone, which seems real weird now that I think about it, and starts punching in my “phone number”. I’m like whatever, no problem, it’s not like he’s gonna ask to see my phone to make sure the text came through. What I DIDN’T think of until the moment he hit Send on his carefully worded text message, was that this text is about to go to some other random phone number, where he might get an automated business response or even a “wrong number” reply.

    Immediately I stand up like “h-hey man I gotta go” and he, like any pushy salesperson, gives me grief about leaving like our business isn’t over yet. And I’m like “no really dude I have a thing across town, my time here today was limited, I have got. to. go.” And he’s like “uh well alright let me walk you out then” and as he goes to grab his phone on his desk the motherfucking text tone goes off and IT’S THE FAKE NUMBER. He didn’t open it, he looked and at it and looked back at me and says something like “oh, I see” and I literally just gave him something akin to “idk man what do you want from me” lmao. And then he STILL walked me out and we STILL did the whole like “well yeah we’ll be in touch” bullshit. Holy hell was that uncomfortable

    I thought the dude the salesman went to talk to was gonna end up being a family member or friend or someone who would be like “wtf? That’s *whatever your name is* not Joe Six Pack” and then awkward silence would ensue but somehow the reality was much worse lol
