Smooth talkin’ Jaro

Actual conversation with the girl at the table next to me at Common Grounds today…

Her: “Could you tell me the time again?”

Me: “Sure, no problem.”

*awkward silence*

Her, repeating: “Could you tell me the time?”

Me: “Oh, you mean now.”

There are a few things I could say in my defense, but I think I’ll just leave it at that.

In other news, today was my first day on the job. And you know what I found on my desk? A one pound box of rubber bands. Associates from my previous internship know that this is a bad, bad, very bad idea.


  1. Justin Holmes says:

    Smooth as ever Jacob. Started wearing a watch again, heh?

  2. Mike says:

    I think she just missed that you were showcasing your witty personality.

  3. Taco Boy says:

    The girl was one of my undercover operatives, QC. Clearly she did not do her job, I will have to “rectify” this problem.

  4. Sarah says:

    Jacob, I just want you to know that my offer to rent you a fake girlfriend still stands. Not that I’m suggesting you need it … actually, yeah I am. Have fun at your little Libertarian camp. Check out what my fellow socialists are doing
