    i have a buddy who for some odd reason seems to be so easy going and relaxed about life in general that no matter what he does or says he gets away with it.

    case in point:

    he was at a party with a few other friends of mine when who shows up but the epitome of haggard 80s rocker with a fucking slash top hat on and the whole tshirt and jeans hair metal look.

    seeing how funny this guy looked, my friend missed no oportunity but to just go right up and start pal-ing around with the guy as if they were best friends. patting him on the shoulder, cracking lewd jokes about the dudes girlfriend whom he was having a rough patch with (probably something along the lines of what happened in the "november rain" music video).

    the topic of def leppard songs (?!) came up and goofy/funny/clumsy/always gets shitted on friend #2 walks up because hes a huge def leppard fan. he taps slash on the shoulder and says something to the effect of "OH ISNT THAT A DEF LEPPARD B-SIDE?"

    at first theres silence, then slash puts on one leather glove. ONE FUCKING LEATHER GLOVE. grabs the cigarette from my goofy friends mouth, takes a drag and puts it out with his shoe and says "dont you EVER touch me again."

    meanwhile suave friend #1 just laughs and continues to punch dude in the shoulder or whatever.

    i mean this guy is nuts. at a party he told me he was going to tell a "black joke" to a group of guys at a party that he sort-of knew but they probably still wouldnt appreciate it. not in any way meant to be a racist maneuver, but just to test limits with the guys. i expected him to get his face kicked in, but i look over and after he tells the joke he had them all in stitches! just pushing them and laughing along with them.

    its insane. i digress...

    well if you wear a rock outfit , people think your nuts. if people see you as being nuts, then inside their head its ok for you to act nuts, and they probably tolerate a lot more.

    thats what makes people pretty sweet, most everyone has, or can do
    special stuff like your friend. i had some friends that i use to cause
    trouble with, and no matter what, my one friend would ALWAYS get
    away. no matters if he had to run, talk or hit his way out of a situation.
    i always kinda watched him in awe...when i had the chance.

    in all seriousness, how do you think your friends brag about you f_L?

    Jeez, freight. Is your friend (the one who gets away with everything) unusually attractive? I've noticed (as has the rest of the world) that more attractive people get away with a lot more than the measly folk.

    well i wasnt really making the thread as a journey into the minds of these people, i just thought itd be funny to tell some stories or something.

    pmb: nah i dunno. never really thought about it. normal looking dude. i think its just the "i dont give a fuck" attitude that lets him get away with shit...and its not that thug hard "i dont give a fuck" its just that "ehhhhhhh" fonzie or unflappable egg type "i dont give a fuck"

    my sister and one friend can get anything she wants, and make people feel good about doing it too. it's so strange i'll go anywhere with them and we always go free, and my sister can talk her way out of anything. it's so frustrating. i just don't get it.

    I'm pretty good a blending in ahywhere and getting along with everyone.
    I guess it's only a bad thing when you see people with that ability using
    it dishonestly like con-men or players or gold diggers. Than it's a waste of a good gift.

    I can get away with saying some relatively fucked up shit. It seems to me I usually say what everyone is thinking in their heads. Most are just too concerned about political correctness to say it outloud.

    I definitely think it depends on the delivery. If you act like its no big deal, then most people take it that way. Although, I have to say I'm surprised I haven't gotten the shit kicked out of me yet. All in due time I'm sure.

    In the battle against 'Political Corectness' there will be some casualties.

    I'm on the front line.

    my roommate cracks me up not only can he get away with everything, but he can talk anybody into anything. Case in point he has what he calls his "Ass Cam" and on this camera are so far 6 different random women stripping on it and he just bought the damn thing yesterday.
