Phone rings – 9PM. Caller ID says it is from an Ivy League College. Early for a “drunk genius” call.
I’ve had these calls before, and even before I picked up the phone, I think I knew I would regret it.
“Yo, you the Internet dude, man?” is the first thing I heard.
Yep – I called this one half right. Drunk yes. Genius, no.
It’s another “two drunk guys in a dorm” call.
And they haven’t always been bad. I have actually talked to a couple of very interesting people who called while drunk with their friends.
But that is rare. Normally it is just some drunk guys that think they have found a great way to get women to take their clothes off online – or a “sure thing” Texas Hold’em idea.
Normally I just find these calls funny. Tonight though these guys were just mean as hell. To me, to each other. Unreal. All that anger could be re-channeled and focused on serious business ideas. But I doubt these guys ever do that.
They didn’t sound like over-achievers to me.
But they can dial a phone. And I am sure they weren’t done dialing after talking to me.
