A young ladies misinterpretation of a conversation leads to an even more awkward conversation.


A SECURITY GUARD opens the door revealing AVERY (20's)



The Security Guard disregards her polite introduction, continues to stare at her STONE FACED.


I have a noon appointment with...




Oh right.

She fidgets around in her purse and pulls out her ID.

Security Guard takes it and examines it.




August 26th, 1997. You're like me, you like to use Acronyms I see. Oh I love acronyms, use them all the time... I mean like TALLMSL.

Security Guard looks at her puzzled.


TALLMSL or THEY ARE LOKE LITERALLY MY SECOND LANGUAGE. FYI I RSVP'D my appointment using my PC ASAP because I'm to OCD to put things off. I almost forgot to bring my ID which would've really sucked because I would've been so SOL am I right? I was this close to being late though because an ATM ate my DC and I didn't have money to get gas. Unfortunately neither my BF or BFF saw my SOS text so I decided to walk here and arived in the perfect time to reach my ETA, instead of waiting for a response because if there's one thing I know, it's that if you don't DIY no ones gonna DIFY am I right OG Tripple OG?

She puts her hand up to give him a high five.

He looks at her like she's crazy. She awkwardly lowers her arm. He hands her back her ID and steps aside to let her into the building.
