Obvious

People love to state the obvious. I have one coworker who is always commenting on the things that are basically facts. He loves to ask about them? So, your eating lunch, huh? No I was planning on giving myself a taco facial. A lot of people love even more to state the obvious when it's negative. After a night out of drinking your coworker in the morning might tell you, "You look like shit." People really do love to be negative.

When I started as a contractor at my company during my first week I was nervous when I approached one of the artist for the game Mafia Wars. Today was my first day encrypting user machines with PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) and the first set of people we approached kicked us out of the suite. I asked the artist if he had time for me to PGP encrypt his machine. He said sure and gave me a funny look. "Would you like to be a bellhop?" Without any hesitation or questions I answered the obvious answer, "Of course I want to be a bellhop!" I had no idea what he was talking about but when someone asks you such a strange question the answer has to be yes. He pulled out a camera and snapped a picture of me then told me I would be a bellhop in vegas. Cool!

Two months later I was in the Mafia Suite again this time with a Slushy in my hand and I went to talk with my new friend Lynn. As I walked up to her she smiled big and said, "I am so Jealous?" "Because I have a slushy?" I asked back. "Because you'r in the game, I always wanted to be in the game, have you seen it? It looks just like you." she replied back. I wondered what my bellhop would interact with the players. would I give them a task, would they have to bribe me, or would they have to whack me. Awesome!

A few weeks later I got to see the picture, it does look just like me. Lynn sent me an email and I found out I was a free gift in the new Vegas expansion of Mafia Wars. I immediately started to make jokes that I was a slut because I was free. This week the game was released and I logged in to the game to see if I could send myself to all my FB friends, sadly I did not see myself. within the games you get different free items you can send. My coworker did a quick google search to find out how to get the bellhop in mafia wars and we came to a link with my picture and a description. At the bottom of the page is a space for comments. The very first comment had me laughing so hard. My coworker who did the search had the most horrified look on his face until he saw my reaction. The comment was just one word but to me it was so obvious it might as well said... white guy. What did the anonymous comment say?

Faggot!!!



P.S. please don't defend me on the wiki page, I think it's hilarious because I am a big old faggot.

I love that they have to acquire that many gay bellhops to upgrade their hotel's star level. It's funny because it's true!

I know!! If you want a five star hotel you need 108 Gay Bellhops. I love that people will be thinking that the need more of me. Of course other people will be thinking why are you sending me a gay bellhop.

So you write blog posts, huh?

So you want me to read it, huh?

So you want me to use my brain to process this, huh?

etc etc ;-)

Yes I hate those, especially the ones that say 'you're at lunch then?' and then proceed to act as if you aren't. WTF? I just say yes and glower. Or more often, go out for lunch so I can get some peace...

That is fucking hilarious! I saw your post on Facebook but didn't quite know what to think of it. I guess I thought it was more of a role playing game or something, not an actual character in the game. Are congratulations in order?

I'm not so much a character as a resource to be collected. I think it really cool but I didn't really do anything to earn it. I was just in the right place at the right time... and I had the gay bellhop look the artist was going for apparently.

I think being in the right place at the right time must count for something.
