I’ve heard that booze can make a persons real personality come out, since a lot of the time it turns off a persons normal filters. I hope thats not the case myself, because otherwise it turns out that deep down I’m just a confused guy that cant remember where he parked his pants. Still, I have to admit the theory has some merit. Last weekend while making a beer run with a few friends one of them started asking me about some of the buttons in my car, because he found them unfamiliar. Most of the buttons he just nodded his head about until he came across the little lever that controlled the cruise control.
Him: “Whats that?” Me: “The cruise control” Him: “What? That cant be. This is a stick shift” Me: “No… really… its the cruise control” Him: “Dude. I’m not dumb. You cant have cruise in a stick shift.” Me: “Uh… but its there. Look, I hit the button and the cruise light comes on in the dashboard” Him: “No way. You cant have cruise in a stickshift. It wouldn’t work” Me: “Ok. You got me. Its the turbo button.” Him: “Oh! Cool!”
Deep down that guy only listens to what he wants to hear.
