My Trainer and I got to talking while i was at the gym and he told me a story about a young woman (she had just started university) from out of town who he has been dodging. They were introduced through mutual friends who jokingly made reference to his sexual prowess. Well the young woman showed up at his apartment for a bath presumably because there was a water lock-off at her place. She had no towel, no change of clothes, nothing....but he proceeded to allow her to use his facilities pointing out the clean towels and where she could find soap. It seems in the time needed for her to take a bath (she didn't want to just shower), she forgot where the towels were kept and of course had to go looking for him (naked) to again request his assistance. While he insists that nothing happened on that occasion, and that he avoided her for about a week thereafter, she again showed up at his place and this time proceeded to literally shock him (with both action and words) while pleasing him.
His face actaully recounted the shock as he told his tale.....he said he is again trying to avoid said young woman and cannot believe that our young people (girls) are so sexually advanced.
Now as he was coming to the end of his story, my cellphone rang. I saw that it was a young man who i had met at a club, and with whom i had only spoken on the phone but had never seen since the original meeting. He gets over the initial greetings and then proceeds to ask if I could send him some credit (most people here use their cell phones on some pay as you go system for which the purchase of credits is necessary). I told him that i am not sure how that works and he proceeded to tell me hot to get it done, but unfortunately he was out of credit and so i should return his call. After my trainer and i laughed a while at the audacity of the young man, i returned his call. His story: He needed to make an important phone call, but he had no credit and since he was already home, did not want to go back unto the road to get some. I of course told him that it would be impossible for me to help at that time as i was not dressed to go shopping (I always leave the gym in my workout attire). He basically said bummer and hung up.
Now this is someone who is not anywhere near my list of friends and who is filed squarely under acquaintance. Under what conditions exactly was i going to purchase credit for him? And why is some man that i barely know asking me to buy him credit?......I am still waiting on him to suggest when he would have repaid me!!!
