Yes. This is pretty embarrassing.

A guy from a class I was taken had gotten somewhat friendly with me and had actually propositioned having a threesome with his girlfriend. She was a decent looking Latina and he was an ok dude.  I was in my early 20s and not really having any real opportunities to have sex agreed to it.

I was told to meet them at thier apartment, but when I get there and call the guy says to just stay outside in my car. He will come down and talk to me. Ok fine, I don't know why I can't just go up there, but I really want to have some sort of sex. Guy comes down, gets in my car and tells me that first we've got to get some weed. Ok thats fine, makes sense to lighten the atmosphere. He then adds the question do I have any money, a $20. I say yeah and I give it to him because as an idiot I think everything is going to be ok. He tells me to drive to his dealer and we get the stuff. It's all good so far. We get back to the apartment and he goes inside telling me "he's got to make sure everythings ok". Of course he never comes back or tells me to come up.

This was a lot of effort on the dudeís part for 20 bucks of weed. I feel bad for him.
Probably better for them.

I would have made it awkward.

Iíve actually taken part in a threesome and it was not fun for me.

I should make a thread dedicated to obtuse adventures to get sex.

Can someone fill me in on the Kramit drama? I don't remember it from GAF or I wasn't paying attention when it happened.

Yup. Quite recently too. Went to see a hand specialist as I injured my pinky a few months ago. It was taking a while for my insurance to go through, so I went to see this guy on my own, out of pocket. Dude was the most useless doctor I've ever seen in my life. A real asshole too. He provided me with absolutely no help whatsoever. Now, he claimed it was because he couldn't deduce what the problem may have been, which probably would have been okay, but he didn't offer ANY suggestions whatsoever. Or at the very least, could have returned the money I paid him. Anyway, this ordeal cost me around $250. Worst chunk of change I've ever spent in my life. And my pain is still here going on month four. :(

US Health Care is the biggest scam on the planet.  About 90% of a doctor's visit is a doctor basically googling your symptoms on fancy versions of WebMD.  It's always incredible looking at the actual amounts of money your insurance shells out for visits let alone what you have to pay.

I spent less than 3 minutes with an actual doctor once (after the 60 seconds of the nurse checking blood pressure) and the asshole gave me the worst "diagnoses" ever, left, and charged my insurance $1500 for the visit.

Oh the whole medical thing is a scam in the US. It's like going to Best Buy going up to a sales rep and saying "I don't know if I need to buy anything, I might not even need to buy anything. Please tell me what I need to buy." I really don't understand why people are so quick to defend the system.

It's almost worse / more frustrating than that becuse of the role insurance plays.  Doctors basically refuse to give you treatments that are hard to justify to insurance that you need, but are quick to charge you loads of money for the automatic approval items.  The visit itself, certain tests,  etc.

It's like going in to Best Buy and you really need a 50" TV but instead they sell you 5 10" TVs.

Then they make you argue, wait, argue, go to another Best Buy, buy 20 more 10" TVs.. and finally sell you the 50" TV.  You of course pay for all of it.

A cab driver in Warsaw tried to scam me by telling me that he switched the meter to Euros which was an obvious lie for him to charge me 4x the fare.

Was a good opportunity for me to practice cussing in Polish.

Hahaha love the balls
