#GiveDaveAChance

I went to return a DVD to Redbox, and there was this kid waiting in line behind me. His phone rings. He looks down, sees the name, and suddenly looks kind of nervous/shocked/flustered. He answers the phone as he surreptitiously smooths out his shirt.

“Hey, Valerie?” he asks, incredibly nervous…his voice is shaking. “Yeah it’s -” his voice cracks and we can barely hear him say, “it’s Dave.” He clears his throat and tries again, “Sorry it’s -” voice cracks again, and yet again we can’t hear him say “Dave.” Finally, he takes a deep breath and tries and third time, but again fails.

Poor bloke. What a bad time for puberty to set in. Well, Dave, we’re all pulling for you Valerie! #GiveDaveAChance
