Facebook really is an incredible thing. Criminals get caught, you can stalk hot guys or, if you’re me, figure out who that drunk passed out guy in my car was. I didn’t even solicit for this information, I simply put the photo out there and his best friend came to me. I got the funniest email from this passed out guy’s best friend. No names, don’t worry since you will read this.
“Please Read. Regarding the guy who shared his cab service with you this past weekend. Long and hilarious story short, he is my best friend. My wife was listening to your show this morning (she listens daily) and picked up on the story about him. I had just told her the night before about my friend’s escapade in Dallas, so she immediately was curious as to whether or not the guy you were describing was our friend, and pulled over in her car and quickly looked at your Twitter, blog, and finally Instagram to hopefully find some clue linking him to your story. She saw your pic you posted and immediately burst into laughter and then texted me the pic. I could not believe it. Yesterday, he recounted to me that he had had one hell of a night, getting lost, phone dying, having no money, and wandered from bar to bar. He does not remember you or the cab ride and was utterly embarrassed after I sent him the pic of you two. I just can’t believe that he ran into you, of all people, and shared a cab. I am also curious as to what he may have said or done around you, so that I can hang it over his head for the rest of his life. I would really appreciate at least a confirmation that that was him. If it is not, he has an evil twin who was wearing the exact shirt, roaming the streets of Dallas at exactly the same time. Thanks for taking the time to read, I hope you get a laugh out of this, we sure have! look forward to hearing your show tomorrow!”
I don’t know whether to be totally honest about the kid, or just leave it at he was drunk and didn’t do anything too horrible, so no big deal. At least he was a nice drunk, offering me a ride and fast food-though I ended up paying for both since he was sleeping. One of my guy friends said he recognized him from earlier in the night because he tried to steal a red bull from our table at the bar. Obviously the poor guy needed the boost and he clearly failed.
