the clip starts with eva talking aboutcauseries: humorous written piece that, in english, can be referred to as “talk of the town”. eva says she’s not good at it while noora says she doesn’t even know what it is. 👀👀👀
even before sana starts focusing on the carrot munching, from the very first second of the clip, the audio has a slight echo to it. which could just be the staircase in which they’re in but i’d think that the team would fix it in post-prod. i feel like they left it because it gives a daydreaming quality to the scene and sana’s pov. from the start, she’s not really listening.
carrot munching from the trailer
i’ve seen people comment that noora is eating too loudly, that’s not what it is. firstly: have you ever managed to eat a carrot silently? and secondly: the shot is to show how much sana is annoyed by noora now. when you hate someone, you tend to find every single thing they do annoying. suddenly, they breathe too loud, eat too loud, are just generally gross.
in my attempt to find out if there was a word for this phenomenon other thanmisophonia (as i understand it, misophonia is when you’re hypersensitive to certain sounds regardless of the context or person…i was looking for a word for when it happens only when you hate someone), i discovered a video of 5mn of carrot munching noises. here it is if you want to die.
as sana focuses on noora and eva joining the group, she tunes out the noise around her just as when in prayer or when she was looking at yousef’s facebook profile. it seems thatthe music from sigur rós is used here as it was used in the other focusing scenes.
isak literally gets his nose into other people’s business (and i feel that almost everyone noticed immediately, despite how little of the frame it takes, because ofthe reading sense)
again, we have isak trying to reach sana and he says exactly what’s on sana’s mind: “has sara stolen all your friends?”
hey wait but merle said he left his family/the enclave because “they weren’t doing enough to contribute to the good of mankind.” he said they were too exclusive and only in it for themselves (”i’m going to heaven, tough luck for you!”) the very next episode, what does merle do? he teaches the people of fungston about pan and gives them faith and hope so that, even if they do get devoured by the hunger in a year, they “have some hope for the time they’re here.” and then he stays with them when the hunger arrives so they don’t feel alone or abandoned. anyway i love merle
EVA: I wanted to write a causerie, but I’m not funny at all. I think it’s really difficult.
NOORA: I don’t even get what a causerie is.
EVA: I was really struggling. It’s like.. It doesn’t even matter whether I have a good day when we have a mock exam. I feel like it’s..
[DIALOGUE FADES OUT]
EVA: Are you joining us? Sana!
EVA: Are you joining us for McDonalds?
SANA: No, I’m reading for my mock exam.
NOORA: Okay. Should we buy you something?
SANA: No, no thanks.
EVA: Yes.. Talk to you later.
EVA: I’m sooo hungry.
NOORA: Me too!
ISAK: Have Sara stolen your friends or something?
SANA: Huh? No!
ISAK: No? Okay, I’m kidding. Fake, fake, fake, fake. Ugh, girls. Sara doesn’t even like Vilde.
SANA: How do you know?
ISAK: Because she talks shit about her.
SANA: To you?
SANA: Are you and Sara friends or something?
ISAK: We were in a relationship.
SANA: That’s true. How could you even stand dating her?
ISAK: No, good question.. It wasn’t a very sexual relationship, to put it that way. We mostly chatted. Looking back on that relationship, I was more of an online therapist than a boyfriend. I would’ve loved some payment for all that time I spent reading shit talk about russ friends and stuff. I couldn’t give more of a fuck. Hey! Sister species are species which are determined morphologically?
SANA: No. Sister species are species which are similar in exterior traits, but which can be completely different genetically.
Okay so I found my dead grandfather’s journal from 56 years ago. This is some old stuff, okay, and I was like yeah I’m gonna read a page or two.
Basically he wrote down this road trip he did with a friend of his (name is Giulio) but at some point it gets so weird.
I’ll try my best to translate it from italian to english (english is not my first language) and well, I’m also having a hard time trying to read my gandpa’s writing cause he wrote like a drunk snail.
Now, beware, my grandfather was an italian man dedicated to work, church, work and work, who believed in the traditional family and all that Jazz. But at some point I reach this part where he writes: “yesterday me and Giulio slept in the same tent as mine was stolen at the gas station. As it was really cold, we slept close. In the middle of the night I realized that the warmth next to me did not belong to my Nadia (his fiancé at the time, my grandmother). It was the most intense feeling I’ve ever felt”.
And I was like allright that’s some weird no homo bullshit but who cares.
BUT THEN IT JUST GETS WORSE.
“I was having a cigarette whilst Giulio was asleep in the car, having a nap before we hit the road again. In the midst of the smoke of my tobacco, I saw his face and thought that the woman who is going to marry him will be lucky”.
Grandpa, what the hell?
BUT OH NO IT JUST GETS BETTER.
“We shared a bed. Old motel did not have spare rooms, it was awkward at first. Then I started thinking that the warmth of Giulio’s body is somehow becoming more familiar to me then Nadia’s.”
Now, I have like seventy more pages of this goddamn journal but I am pretty fucking sure my gandfather had the worst crush over his best friend.
Genre: Romance, Fluff POV: Reader’s and Zach’s (POVs are stated before a section.)
A/N: Hello guys! This is a 2-Part story and both parts are from different requests. This is actually a bit different from the request below but I just really wanted to connect both requests so yup haha. I hope you guys enjoy!
Request: I was wondering if you could pretty please do an imagine where Zach is just hopelessly in love with the reader, he does dorky things to see her smile, his friends always tease him when she walks by, she always catches him staring at her during class or lunch, he gets really nervous when she talks to him and he tries to keep his cool when she’s near but he always fails and is just super cute, just super fluffy.
“Y/N! Y/N LOOK! LOOK!” Zach says through his mouth full of chicken tenders while he sat in front of me.
“Look how many chicken tenders I can fit in my mouth!” he continues as he tries to get my attention and I look at him in disgust, but it was pretty impressive too if I’m being completely honest.
“Zachary stop it, you look like an idiot.” I reply as I go back to reading my History notes. I promised myself that I’ll do better after failing our most recent quiz.
“I’m not going to stop until I see a smile on your face. Stop getting so bothered by that stupid quiz! There’s always 10 more after that anyway.” he says as he removes the chicken from his mouth one by one, chewing the others in the process.
“I need to keep my grades high, you know this, or else my parents will be so disappointed in me.” I reply as I become even more upset, I lean my head down on my notes.
“You’re already the perfect daughter, the perfect student and the perfect girl. No one can ever be disappointed in someone like you. You’re too hard on yourself sometimes, you don’t even see how amazing you are.” he says and I lift my head up to face him.
“You’re just saying that to make me feel better.” I say as lean my chin on my right hand while pouting and Zach gets a sip of my milkshake. When he parted the glass from his mouth, a white vanilla foam moustache was left on his upper lip. He looked like one of those History people we learn about. I purse my lips while trying to hide the obvious smile on my face.
“A-HA! Is that a smile?! I see a smile! Yes! I made you smile!” he beams, fists pumping up in the air.
“You really are an idiot.” I reply as I shake my head at him and hand him a tissue.
“It’s fine. I don’t mind acting like an idiot as long as I can make you happy.” he says while munching on a french fry and I scoff at him.
Zach Dempsey has been my bestfriend ever since we were in 3rd grade when I gave him a sip of my strawberry milk and he threw up all over me shortly after. That was the first time I found out about his very sad allergy. It’s a classic story between him and I. Since then, we’ve been inseparable.
Being bestfriends with one of the most popular guys in school means you’re also friends with the people around him. You get invited to all the cool parties, you get VIP passes at every school event and people automatically think you’re more important than you actually are. It was great, but not always. I missed being with Zach, just him, just the two of us and it was moments like right now that I treasure most.
“Oh by the way, we’re all going to see the new Fast and Furious movie tomorrow night. I’ll pick you up at 7 okay?” Zach suddenly asks.
“Please don’t tell me that obnoxious friend of yours will be coming too.” I say as I roll my eyes.
“Bryce? No no, Justin didn’t invite him.” he replies with a laugh.
“Alright then I’m in!” I answer and get back to reading my History notes.
The next day
I stood by my locker as I get the books I need for next period. Great, I thought to myself, Physics next, my least favorite subject. I sigh in disappointment as I shut my locker door. I turn to my right and a smiling Zach Dempsey was leaning on the locker next to mine.
Man you guys are gonna love me. I have one porch for you all, BUT there
are several photographs. This porch/deck was submitted by a coworker and he
also sent over some great stats like square footage. We’re gonna simulate movement of a party guest through this porch into (did you notice?) A SECONDARY PATIO. First off, I’m calling this a porch, but you can call it a deck too. Porch deck potato potato.
Lets go over some hot specs/stats on this baby first. - 300
sq ft deck (built 2013) - 200
sq ft patio with fire pit (built sometime between 1963 and 2007) - 3
locking gates on deck to control access for kids, pets and strangers - railing
is designed to minimize child escape. - 3rd
area in the back yard if you want to consider the large fire pit a
seating area (I absolutely do) - deck
has 2 dedicated seating areas in addition to plenty of space for kids
toys/bikes - has
hosted many parties with no reported fatalities and minimal injuries - house is on a mountain so there is a slight drop off and makes the deck feel like a treehouse (FRICKIN SOLD DUDE)
- At any time you can hear from the nearby high school or wetlands a HS
Football/Baseball game, trains, frogs, or airplanes from the local airport which make a thunder sound in the valley.
Ok, first picture, we see the run up to the porch. I’m very encouraged to see (1) tiki torch and (2) potted plants in different sized pots (this is very important, symmetry is not necessary on these more woodland porches. We’re not about to hold a wedding or a funeral out here. This porch is all business for working folk. Also whats that I spy in the distance? A table with an umbrella!? Very impressive, rain protection is so important. Also it provides protection against any bird droppings or acorns from the nearby trees so smart move on the part of the porchowner.
Second picture, we get the whole ballgame. I’m spying dos kids bikes and they fit very comfortably on the porch which means the porch has great parking. I also don’t see a ticket on any of the bikes so lax parking enforcement too. Since the house is on a mountain in the woods you know those bikes aren’t getting stolen. Let’s talk about lighting for a quick minute. Porch lighting is a key demarcation between a porch that is merely good, versus truly great. Porch lighting should create a mystical yet homey feel. Christmas lights are absolutely encouraged. In this case we get lightbulbs strung in what appears to be a fashion an electrician might have slight issue with. I approve. This is the kind of deck that GETS BETTER when the sun sets. Just think about that. You’re out there with your friends having a good ole time, but wait! Oh no! The sun is setting and existential terror sets in. Hold the damn phone, we’ve got lightbulbs.
Third picture, we get a great look at the stone and grass patio. I don’t know if you all have noticed yet, but I’m a big fan of multiple GOSA’s (general outdoor seating areas) on one house. Options are super important. Also I spy a firepit. Firepits are paramount as they function as beacons to move guests off your porch or deck and onto the patio. Its like Lord of the Rings when Aragorn goes mountain climbing to light the beacons and all the Rohirrim show up at Minas Tirith. The only difference is in this case you just need to move your friends about 15-20 feet in one direction (thats about as difficult, especially your coworker Big Mike, he tends to post up a lot. Mike’s also the guy that drinks mike’s hard lemonade because his name is Mike, so shout outs to him).
Speaking of alcohol its time to recommend a drink for this porch/patio combo. My coworker told me he’s had the most success with an “an ice-cold fresh-made
michelada.” Sign me up.
All in all I give this porch a 9/10. This is a Great Porch. I have also been invited over to this porch to do a field test of the chairs and other porch amenities and I will absolutely report back.
Genre: Angst, fluff is coming tho don’t worry Words: 2,165 Pairings: Bucky Barnes x Reader Warnings: Injuries, cute Peter Quill Summary: Soulmate AU in which one’s heartbeat becomes perfectly in sync with their soulmate’s once they meet.
“Bucky, what’s going on?” Steve approached his friend’s side after as he saw Bucky start to stand, albeit wobbly, to his feet. He could see he was staring to feel better, but wasn’t back to being quite himself yet.
“I-I can’t be here right now. Get me away from him, away from her, away fr-”
“Slow down, Buck. What is it?” His hand clasped Bucky’s shoulder both to support him and to encourage him to share what was on his mind. Only Bucky could see the frustration hidden behind his eyes. So much was going on, he didn’t need to be dealing with Bucky’s freak out right now.
He looked back to Peter sitting calmly in one of the chairs, scrolling through his phone to pass time, before looking back at Steve. “Just…” His voice cracked as tears filled his eyes.
Steve pulled his body into his own before he could get an explanation out. It was a crushing hug that Bucky desperately needed, but even the comfort of his life-long friend’s arms couldn’t push the heart-wrenching pain out of his chest.
You know, looking back at these latest episodes it really strikes me as amazing that I didn’t realize that Steven was an empath before.
Steven is sympathetic, that’s not something we ever doubted for a moment. We always knew he could understand the feelings of others better than almost anyone else around, even if he didn’t understand the situation or circumstances, but there’s a difference between between sympathy and empathy, at least when we’re discussing psychic powers.
Sympathy is a mundane thing. One can understand, relate to and predict the emotions of others because you know them or care about them even if you don’t really know them or even like them.
Empathy on the other hand (the psychic power, not the emotion) is supernatural. It’s the low-key telepathic ability to pick up and process the emotions of others, even if you don’t sympathize with them or even know that they’re present. It’s why Steven and Steven alone felt Blue Diamond’s sorrow before he even knew she was there.
It’s been hinted at before that Steven’s ability to connect to other people went above and beyond the mundane. Remember in Gem Drill when Steven freaked out because he subconsciously felt the Cluster’s pain and fear? Remember how he knew they didn’t want to form but he didn’t understand how?
The interesting thing is that being a hybrid whose mind is in his brain and not in his gem, Steven can’t really process these feelings directly, and as a result will do things like pass out or start crying without even noticing that he’s feeling these things. Rose on the other hand seemed to experience things more directly
Garnet: Steven, your mother had healing tears that flowed from her gem. She felt real love for those around her. She felt real sorrow when they were hurt.
In retrospect, being an empath seems to be a necessary secondary power for Rose Quartz to have. If your ability to heal others requires you to cry over them, you had better hope you can literally feel their pain
This is a bit off track since I’m doing a character exposition, but given how important being a kind of telepath is to rose’s most major abilities, I think it’s safe to say that Steven’s other psychic powers like dreamwalking and body snatching did originally belong to Rose Quartz (hence, Pink Diamond couldn’t have stolen Rose’s body. if it happened, it was the other way around).
Knowing the extent of their empathy, I have to wonder whether Stevonnie – being as powerful as a true rose quartz – would be able to act as a reverse-empath and force their emotions and fusion hallucinations in the heads of their opponents
Anyway, getting back to Rose and Empathy, this is getting a bit interesting, because despite all of the emotions rose could feel, it’s been all but explicitly stated that Rose was incapable of romantic love. The entire plot of We Need To Talk was that Rose loved Greg and Pearl but wasn’t in love with them. She had no idea what being in love felt like, and as a result couldn’t understand the pain either of them felt when she Greg realized he was just a fling to her or when she cheated on Pearl with all those men she sang about in Mr. Greg
Rose is aromantic (or at least I think that’s the right term). For whatever reason, she can’t “learn how to love like you,” and thus is unable to either sympathize or empathize with that emotion. For humans this is nothing to be ashamed of (though we make a habit of being ashamed anyway), but for Rose Quartzes, who are engineered with the supernatural ability to share emotions directly, this is for all intents and purposes a major functional defect.
I’m not sure I have anything else I want to say about this, I just thought it’s really interesting and organizes Steven and Rose’s powers a lot more neatly than they were before.
The old bartender working the quiet Tuesday afternoon shift had poured Dean another glass of whiskey before he’d even opened his mouth to ask for it. Dean looked up from his hands long enough to give a nod of thanks before pulling the new glass to his lips and taking a sip.
The bartender returned the bottle to its shelf and smiled behind his wiry beard.
“Thought you could use another,” he said, “You’ve got that look.”
“You’re not wrong,” Dean said. The man waited; Dean said nothing.
“So what is it?” he pressed. “Love? Money?”
“Those the usual culprits?” Dean asked. The bartender kept his smile, waiting. Dean looked down at his glass again and turned it slow in his hands. Pushing away from the counter, the old man grabbed a mostly dirty rag and started away, taking the hint and his leave.
“You let me know if you need another,” he said over his shoulder.
CHRISTIAN BORLE DESERVES A TONY FOR MARVIN (falsettos 2016) AND YOU CANT PRY THAT FACT FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS.
Not ONLY does he have an amazing sweet beautiful voice that I want to lull me to sleep at night then PUNCH me in the face in the morning and fucking CRUISY CHISELED GOD ARMS
he also is an amazing actor who went from many comedic roles to a very VERY heavy show. He plays Marvin fantastically, as Marvin is a really hard character to play considering how much he changes throughout the musical but Christian Borle does everything so fantastically that you end the show feeling like Marvin is being played by a completely different actor. He changes his resting facial expression his body language the way he interacts with other actors on stage and the way he sings and it’s all DYNAMITE. Marvin is an emotional character to play he fucking sLAMS it though you feel Marvin’s emotions as he makes all his stupid choices and even when he’s being AWFUL you’re still rooting for him? DONT GET ME STARTED ON HIS ON STAGE CHEMISTRY WITH THE CAST TOO SMH?? Like he and Andrew are AMAZING together and they’re SO comfortable with each other and he and Stephanie like YOU PHYSICALLY FEEL THEM RECONCILING AND ITS BEAUTIFUL. Christian Borle knocks Marvin out of the freaking park. A hard character to play and he does it so well he’s so humble and so kind and so good and pure and AMAZING I just want him to succeed in everything.
So yeah if he doesn’t win his tony for this amazing role you’re gonna have to pry a stolen tony from my hands🤷🏽♂️ bc he fucking deserves it ?? Like I’m so,, done,,, you cannot tell me he doesn’t do fucking amazing as Marvin you CANT
You know, I’ve been (reasonably) so focused on how many mixed
feelings Lucretia must have had the whole time she was with the Tres
Boys and couldn’t talk about their history together that I haven’t
really considered what it was like for Barry.
Barry trying to explain the Hunger to them in Lucas’s lab without
their brains staticking out. Barry killing Captain Captain Bain for
trying to poison them. Barry saving Merle’s kids from a runaway
Barry knowing they didn’t remember him, that Lucretia had told
them to avoid him, but still believing deep down that
after a century together some part of them must still trust him. Realizing they didn’t and nearly falling apart. All but pleading with them, telling them that next time they had to, they had
to trust him.
Barry following the Boys through
Wonderland, trying to keep his presence hidden from the other
litches, seeing them as they get hurt and give up things that are
important to them but having to wait for the right moment.
I know once the Stolen Century
arc ends it’ll probably be a big epic fight to save the world from
the Hunger but I would actually be okay if it ended and we just saw Barry, Lucretia, Davenport and the Tres Boys sit down in a circle and
talk about their feelings for an hour.
So if my understanding is correct, multiculturalism is the process where each european country loses their own particular culture and people
If you are having such a hard time with the definition let’s break it down:
Multi-: a prefix meaning more than one or many
Cultural: relating to the ideas, customs, and social behavior of a society.
-ism: a suffix meaning distinctive practice, system, or philosophy
So, Multiculturalism is the philosophy that many ideas customs and social behaviors can exist in a society.
It seems that you are confusing multicultralism with supremacy. Supremacy states that there is one dominate cultural group that is catered to exclusively.
What is interesting about your statement is that European Countries have forced their culture on the world for thousands of years, but now you want to complain that your culture will no longer be dominate.
This plea falls on deaf ears. After the enslavement, forced conversion and dehumanization that my ancestors endured in the name of upholding your culture, I feel little pity that you must have to accept that other cultures exist outside your own.
When to this day I live on land that was stolen from my ancestors and their counterparts so that Europeans that were discriminated against could have somewhere to get away from the religious supremacy present in Europe, I shed no tears that Europe has to deal with the fact that those that are discriminated against are no longer running away but want inclusion.
What makes this all the harder for me is the fact that my mother is European American, therefore so am I. For me this battle is internal in addition to external. My ancestors committed crimes against humanity with my other ancestors as the victims.
But also because of this I literally embody multiculturalism. I have seen two cultures meld together and work side by side, while maintaining the distinction of separate cultures. No culture died because the other one existed, both became a stronger presence in my life because I had several ideals to chose from. I almost never felt completely painted into a corner because I had evidence that life could be lived differently and still be successful.
This also meant that I grew up seeing first hand White Supremacy at work. At the age of 7 I watched my father get pulled out of the car and questioned for over an hour for going a few MPH over the speed limit. At 16 I watched my mother literally charge at a police officer. The officer apologized, gave her a warning and left within 5 minutes. At 26 I had the opportunity to have the same experience as my father.
My point is that the world is a better place when one group is not entitled and when all other groups are not discriminated against. The acceptance of the supremacy of a culture, even your own, is to say that most of the population can be discriminated against. When you set the precedent that most of the population can be discriminated against, do not be surprised if one day you find yourself in the exploited class.
Galra Keith being adopted au, I would like to ask how did they managed to get Keith?, and What are the Garrison reaction to the situation?
To be honest, I haven’t really put much thought into that ^^;; I mostly just wanted a way for Keith to get to Shiro via the Garrison. I feel like Keith would be treated more as an object of study or observation since he’s an alien, but Shiro fights hard for him to live a life like any other child. Shiro’s biggest fear is that Keith would fall into the wrong hands, and be treated more as an experiment or a study subject. I don’t think the Garrison would do anything torturous to Keith, but it would probably be a sterile life without any deep emotional connections.
Pairing: Dean Winchester x Reader, Castiel x Reader (slight, not really)
Warnings: Possessed Reader
gets possessed and tells Dean lies about reader&cas just to hurt
him, but then cas comes and exorcises the demon and Dean thinks that
what the demon said was true (bc of huggin etc) but then time skip
reader tells the truth about her feelings?
“Do you think she’d ever have feelings for you? Dean Winchester?” she scoffed, spite in her voice but Dean couldn’t bring himself entirely to hate it because it was your face, it was your voice, it was your eyes- your everything that he actually loved. He couldn’t bring himself to be strong an face the monster because he was actually facing the woman he loved more than anything. She laughed. But it was not the same laugh that would usually make his heart skip a beat because unfortunately it was no longer you that laughed.
“Like hell” she scoffed “She’d rather kill herself than fall for you, much less get any closer as far as a relationship is concerned.” she said in a hiss “You’re one big damn flaw, Dean. Broken, in every possible way. You are a mess, a man with daddy issues, womanizer and an alcoholic. What would she ever want to do with you?” she scoffed and Dean swallowed down the lump in his throat.
He fought so hard to not let it show how much your words were getting to him.Because he knew it wasn’t yours words exactly it was her words because she was the one speaking. But in the very end she was inside you, she could see all of your thoughts and feelings. How could Dean be sure she was only lying to him?
“Shut up.” Dean growled, his hands not even flexing to throw the holly water at you like he would do with any other demon. He couldn’t bring himself to hurt you not even when it wasn’t actually you.
yuri being mila’s go-to comfort person whenever her heart gets broken by her on/off hockey player boyfriend
he already has a Comfort Mila Kit which includes nail polish (milas good at nail art and he lets her experiment w/ him), 80′s movies, microwave popcorn and lots of chocolate
he HATES her bf. literally just. TERRIBLE. MILA YOU FUCKING IDIOT WHY DO YOU KEEP COMING BACK TO HIM HE SUCKS
one day mila’s not in her best form during practice. she isnt landing anything for shit and her face is just… sad and lost and it hurts yuri more than he’ll ever admit
he asks her whats going on and she admits she broke up with her boyfriend for good
‘what happened this time?’
‘he cheated on me.’
and. oh man. was yuri seeing fucking RED
but for once he calms tf down and focuses on mila bc he doesnt want her feeling more upset than she already is
he asks yakov if mila can take the rest of the day off and he agrees bc he too can see how low mila is rn
he tells her to go to his house instead of her own bc nikolai already sees her as another grandchild anyway
when he gets home they move to his bedroom and yuri cant even bring out his Comfort Mila Kit bc she spends the rest of the night crying her eyes out
it kills him to see her like this, someone whos so strong to come so undone bc of some fuckboy who doesnt deserve being in her presence
hes glad he managed to contain his anger for once, bc instead of just running him over with his skates, he comes up with a much better idea
he remembers everything mila has told him about her relationship with this guy - the place where they confessed, their first date place, the restaurant where they spent their first anniversary
he steals his house keys from mila and hopes that the asshole remembers them just as well
and its totally not bc he stole his laptop, tv, credit cards and gaming consoles and put them in those significant places. not at all
and if they get stolen before the ex gets to them well thats not his fault lol
when he figures out that mila and sara like each other but havent acted out on their feelings yet, he pulls sara aside
tells her to get her shit together and just tell mila how she feels about her
and if she ever, EVER, breaks her heart she’ll have to answer to him
(also dont tell the old hag i did this seriously)
sara tells her anyway, when they finally get together, and mila just grins bc she just. loves yuri s o m u c h
because theyve gone past being friends, she thinks. theyre siblings in everything but blood, always looking out for each other and being each others rock
she’ll make it up to him for everything he’s done for her someday. she’ll start by telling otabek that she knows abt his giant crush on him and he better toughen the fuck up and tell him already before they both combust
I work at a car dealership, and we’re the number one volume dealer in the area (which means we constantly get vehicles traded in so our inventory is never guaranteed unless you have an appointment.)
Anyways so this customer has her daughter call in her earlier in the day, and the car they called in on has only been in inventory three days - so I let the daughter know to let me know when they’re on their way so I can make sure the cars ready for them.
They never call, I forget about them. But then they get here and ask for me, so I have my partner go out and get the car.
Long story short, 45 minutes later the mom calls me complaining that we are extremely unprofessional because the car wasn’t “ready and cleaned” for her. I explained to her that I told her daughter to call when she’s on her way, so that I could get it cleaned up as it’s a fresh unit. The mom was all indignant and angry and was all “I just think your cars should ALWAYS be ready in case I want to come in and look at them!”
And I said, “ma'am it’s a fresh unit. We get around 50 trades. A DAY. So there’s no way for us to ensure the vehicles in top condition unless you let me know you’re coming in.”
And she’s scoffs and is all “What’s FRESH about this car?”
“It’s been on the lot three days.”
“That’s plenty time -,”
“Ma'am it’s a 2007 Beetle. We aren’t even sure it’ll be sellable. If your daughter had called to tell me, I could have sent the car through service -,”
“Why couldn’t you BEFORE IGOT HERE?”
“Because if there’s no direct, immediate interest in a vehicle, we don’t rush it through service. Because we get 50+ vehicles brought in a day.”
“I just think it’s unprofessional. And rude.”
So I spent the next ten minutes just saying “I apologize you feel that way,” until she got irritated and hung up.
Just wish customers would realize the whole world doesn’t bend and work to their will. I can’t get keys to a car without an appointment - that’s how managers keep keys from getting lost or stolen.
