Alex:

Yeah, no Coutts, no accounts.

Josh:

so you may be wondering, why we are posting on a Friday.

Josh:

, did we make a mistake or did you happen to miss your alarm a few days?

Josh:

And it's actually Monday because they're all great questions.

John:

We're all stuck in manifest.

Josh:

first off it is not Monday.

Josh:

we've actually found some, uh, some awesome success with our mid asshole segments on Tik TOK, crazy day today.

Josh:

as John can attest,

John:

I cried a few times from tears of joy, but let's not get to that.

Josh:

Mine was tears of nerves.

Alex:

Pure anxiety.

Alex:

Just peer

Josh:

I've been an anxious ball of mess.

Josh:

Today is

John:

Josh got spaghetti on his spaghetti already.

John:

Mom's spaghetti the whole day.

Josh:

I had to change sweaters so many times.

Alex:

This is my fist sweater of the day.

Josh:

so, this amazing successes as spawn some great discussion in our comments, of that video and, and many of our other videos on tech talk, and it has brought in some amazing new listeners to the show.

Josh:

So we decided why not give the people what they want.

Josh:

starting this week, you can expect a 15 minute bonus episode every single Friday, aware we will be reading and responding to some mid asshole posts from Reddit.

Josh:

we want this to be as collaborative as possible with our audience.

Josh:

So be sure to let us know your thoughts on each MIV asshole story on our tech talk, YouTube, Twitter, or instant.

Josh:

On top of that.

Josh:

If you have an MIB asshole, you would like us to read, you can send it to us on Reddit, on Wiki pod@gmail.com or DM us on Twitter or Instagram, all of the links to our socials, and our email will be in the show notes.

Josh:

So go check them out there with all of that out of the way I have to ask Alex, John, are you ready for our first official?

Josh:

Am I the asshole?

Alex:

MIP?

John:

I am the asshole.

Alex:

I was just going to say, yeah, as a, as a group of assholes, I think we're

Josh:

we we are a good judge of assholes.

Alex:

Yes.

John:

we just say, how come this is an observation that I've had every single time we have some sort of a new segment.

John:

Sean is never around for the first one

John:

ever.

Josh:

And they're always

John:

The first guests we've had.

Alex:

Whereas Sean,

Josh:

Uh,

John:

Sean,

Josh:

peek behind the curtains.

Josh:

This was a little last minute.

Josh:

So Sean couldn't actually make it tonight.

Josh:

or anytime this week, he's, he's a busy, Busy

Alex:

for shame for shame.

John:

he's probably busy, you know, using the manscape products.

John:

We just re

Alex:

oh yeah.

Alex:

Probably.

Josh:

episode is brought to you by them.

Josh:

So listen, listen later on for the ad, with all of that out of the way, we will jump into our first am I the asshole story?

Alex:

I'm so excited.

Josh:

All right.

Josh:

So starting off.

Josh:

Am I the asshole for siding with my husband when my brother kicked him out of the engagement party.

John:

It's a

John:

lot of testosterone involved, I guess.

Alex:

I feel jacked already.

Josh:

so my brother, Jacob and my husband, Conner have been friends since college.

Josh:

I met Connor through Jacob.

Josh:

they were close and are always in agreement, but that changed once Jacob's fiance.

Josh:

Rachel came around, Connor told me that Rachel used to be this fun girl that slept with nearly everyone in the group, shake him, jacob met her at the new company and they began officially dating.

Josh:

I too was shocked when I heard cause Connor told me about her, glorious college days.

Josh:

Jacob then announced his engagement to Rachel and invited us, for the engagement party.

Josh:

Connor had talks with Jacob about if he was sure he wanted to settle down with her and Jacob told him to drop it and Connor did.

Josh:

Before we get into the, the rest of it, I'm going to say, I think it's pretty shitty to judge someone based off of how many people they've slept with.

Alex:

It's such bullshit, like who gives a crap?

Alex:

Like

Josh:

we're adults who cares,

Alex:

get yours?

Josh:

especially they seem to be referring it as to her college days.

Josh:

what else did you do in college?

Josh:

You drank, had sex and went to parties.

Josh:

Like, you know what I

Josh:

mean?

Alex:

You didn't

Alex:

study.

John:

You studying anatomy another way.

John:

That's what you're trying to

Alex:

Exactly.

Alex:

That's how you figure it out.

Alex:

You get all your, your oats out, right.

Alex:

You just do what she gotta do.

Josh:

You figure out what you want and then you move on and become an adult

Josh:

usually.

Josh:

And if you don't, that's okay too.

Josh:

You can, you can sleep around.

Josh:

It doesn't matter.

Alex:

Yeah.

Josh:

but there is this underlying tone of slut-shaming already, and I'm not about that so far.

Alex:

Don't like it.

Josh:

So, she continues on at the party.

Josh:

I was sitting next to Connor talking about random stuff.

Josh:

Suddenly Rachel's phone starts ringing and she excused herself to answer while she was getting up.

Josh:

Connor looked at her and Jacob and smirked and said, I'm telling you, you can't make a whole a housewife.

Alex:

that's fucked.

Alex:

What.

Josh:

Uh, Rachel stormed off and Jacob unloaded on Connor calling him an obnoxious asshole.

Alex:

Yeah.

Josh:

yeah.

Alex:

yeah,

Josh:

Connor just stared at Jacob, and kept insulting him with names.

Josh:

I didn't want to get involved until Jacob tried to kick Connor out of the party.

Josh:

I said to Jacob that he was overreacting and she calmed down, but he, acted appalled that I defended.

Josh:

But I told him that he, at least wasn't lying Jacob, then proceeded to kick me out as well.

Josh:

My mom got involved and tried to calm us down, but Connor grabbed his keys and phone and told me to follow him.

Josh:

so they're leaving the party basically.

Josh:

we felt terrible.

Josh:

Connor started crying in the car and called mom and said, well, Jacob was overreacting Connor.

Josh:

Was that aligned to say this in front of Rachel and make her cry on her engagement party.

Josh:

And I shouldn't have sided with.

Josh:

She told me to reach out to Jacob to apologize, but I said he insulted my husband who happens to be his best friend, then escalated by kicking him out.

Josh:

I refuse to call Jacob and felt upset for being made to feel bad for siding with my husband.

Josh:

Who's hurt because of what his best friend did to him.

Josh:

Am I the asshole?

Alex:

Yes.

Alex:

Yes.

Alex:

You are like Okay.

Alex:

You might not like who your best friend is with.

Alex:

But she's just slut, shame them and to belittle them because they probably got more action than you did.

Alex:

Small Dick Connor.

Alex:

I don't, I don't vibe with that.

Alex:

And you know, I, I understand wanting to side with your partner, like, that's your best friend, that's your, as you know, Megan Fox would say your twin flame, but that doesn't make them any better of a person.

Alex:

They can still be a toxic asshole, right?

Josh:

well, there's tons of toxic assholes with significant others that doesn't.

Josh:

So, so your, your, your point stands that is true.

Josh:

Very true.

Josh:

and, and I think, you're bang on, what about you, John?

Josh:

What do you think.

John:

know, you know, I think how, how messed up this whole situation is had it been the roles reverse.

John:

And it's the guy who got a bunch of action.

John:

All of a sudden this guy is a fucking college legend.

John:

You know what I'm saying?

John:

But then, because Rachel just had.

John:

Get as much action as she wanted to because that's her prerogative.

John:

It's her choice.

John:

It's her body.

John:

She can do what she wants to

Alex:

exactly.

John:

sudden, like you can't make a whole lot or you can't make a housewife out of a quote unquote, whole that's, that's some bullshit.

John:

That's classic misogyny at its finest.

John:

And I hate it.

Josh:

It's very toxic and.

John:

Very.

Josh:

if she just looked at it from a different angle, say, say Connor's one of Connor's best friends said that about her, before their wedding day, how would she feel?

Josh:

And immediately you're like, oh yeah, that would be shitty.

Josh:

I'm in the wrong.

Josh:

And I will say, I will say this.

Josh:

She is.

Josh:

Less in the wrong then Connor, Connor's a Dick head

Alex:

Oh,

Alex:

the smallest Dick energy I've ever heard of so far

Alex:

today,

Josh:

the, uh, Udacity, the audacity to say that about your best friends, fiance, that like I, and I've listened.

Josh:

I've had best friends whose significant others.

Josh:

I didn't like, but they were happy with them and I supported them through.

Josh:

they'd never worked out, but, you know, what, if it, did, as long as they're happy, What does it matter?

Josh:

What you think of that?

Josh:

Keep them to yourself.

John:

And that ain't your relationship.

John:

As long as you know, they're happy and they're content, they, if they're going to get married, they probably communicated each other's past is.

John:

And even though like, it doesn't matter, like what was back then, it was back then, you know, like they made a conscious decision to beat together and the best friend has got to respect.

John:

I don't know that guy's an asshole.

John:

Connor's a Dick.

Alex:

also want to circle back to the fact that Connor called his mom crying.

Josh:

I think it was her mom.

Alex:

Oh,

Alex:

okay.

Josh:

cause, cause I think the mom was probably at the party, I assume She got involved somehow.

Josh:

so I don't think it was his mom, they called, but it was her mom because of.

Josh:

Brother sister.

Josh:

Right?

Josh:

So it'd be,

Josh:

uh, a family thing.

Alex:

But the fact that she went on Reddit and was like, my mom said I was wrong, but strangers on the internet, please validate me.

Alex:

It's like, you know, you're wrong.

Alex:

Says taken out, work on your relationship, work on your own problems.

Alex:

Don't don't let you and your partner foe hyper-focused on somebody else.

Alex:

Worry

John:

You know what I'm saying?

Alex:

yeah.

Alex:

Worry about the fact that your, your partner is, lacking somewhere.

Alex:

And I think we all know where it

Alex:

is.

Josh:

Yeah, take a look inside before you criticize it.

John:

Exactly.

Josh:

I think we can all agree this person and their husband are assholes.

Josh:

I believe Jacob and Rachel, I wish them nothing but the best.

Josh:

And, it's shitty that they had to deal with this on with all their wedding stuff going on.

Josh:

I know Sean would be pissed if that happened at his

John:

Exactly.

John:

Not, not just asshole.

John:

They're gaping,

John:

booty

John:

holes.

John:

Both of them stretched out everything.

Josh:

God, I apologize to our new audience who aren't, who isn't used to

John:

And our 15 minutes of fame is over.

Josh:

the next week.

Josh:

It'll be Alex, Sean and I.

John:

Damn.

Josh:

moving on to our next.

Josh:

Am I the asshole?

Josh:

am I the asshole for telling my wife she should get a nose

Alex:

I know your

Josh:

Okay.

Josh:

John's face was not.

Alex:

Yeah.

John:

I mean, I don't know the context, but

John:

yes,

Alex:

I'm going to say yes.

Alex:

I'm going to say yes already.

Josh:

As someone who knows the rest of the story, I'm going to hold judgment, but, I appreciate the, enthusiasm.

Josh:

So, he goes on to saying, I love my wife.

Josh:

We've been married for three years and there's nothing I would change about her, except that she's really insecure about her nose and she gets aggressive over when I try to comfort her for as long as I remember, she has always hated her nose and mentions it every day.

Josh:

And when I would try to comfort her and tell her it's beautiful and she doesn't have to change anything, she would get aggressive and yell that I'm alive.

Josh:

Two weeks ago, she got a raise at her job and today's, she suggested the idea of getting a nose job.

Josh:

I said that if she's that insecure about it, to the point that it's affecting her mental health, then she should get it done.

Josh:

She got extremely upset over this and said, I should have said no to the idea.

Josh:

She left the house to go to her.

Josh:

Mother's and I haven't been in touch with her since am I the asshole?

John:

I take it back.

John:

No.

Alex:

yeah.

Alex:

I, it sounds as if, and this is just pure speculation.

Alex:

It sounds as if it's not really the nose, that's the problem.

Alex:

It could be, it could be a self-conscious thing, but the fact that he's trying to give her support left, right?

Alex:

Like he's, it sounds as if he's trying to help her.

Alex:

any way possible by saying, no, you're beautiful.

Alex:

You don't need it to okay.

Alex:

If it's going to affect, like, if it's affecting your mental wellbeing that bad, then go for it.

Alex:

No matter what he says is wrong.

Alex:

So that makes me think it's not the nose.

Josh:

Okay.

Josh:

You think it's

Josh:

some deeper underlying issue?

Alex:

Yeah.

Alex:

To me, it sounds like it's something deeper and this is like once again, pure speculation, but it's just odd that.

Alex:

he keeps trying to help and she's just not happy, but I guess on the other hand too, it's weird that it's just the, no, it was like, you got to wonder if it's other stuff too, right?

Alex:

Like,

Alex:

you know, is he asking her, do you want to, Medo on your sandwich?

Alex:

And she's like screaming at him, like, yo know I hate tomatoes.

Alex:

You know what I

Josh:

Are you calling me a tomato?

Alex:

yeah.

Alex:

so yeah, that's such, that's a tough.

John:

initially I was going to say yes, that kind of sounds weird that you're trying to tell your wife to, to change.

John:

But Yeah, I mean, just what, in a context, given by the original poster alone, it seemed like he was trying to, support her in a way that it's like, Hey, I think you're fine the way you are, but if you're

John:

I shouldn't get it, but I should, but you're just like, man, just treat yourself.

John:

I think homeboy was just trying to tell his wife, Hey, if it makes you happy, treat

John:

yourself.

Josh:

I agree.

Josh:

I think he could have done it better perhaps.

Josh:

like to, to say, if she's out insecure about it, to the point that it's affecting her mental health, maybe phrase it in a way that it sounds less, it comes across as, uh, a bit aggressive.

Josh:

he should have said maybe like, if it's really what you want, I'll support you.

Josh:

and, , if that's something that you really want to do, we can, we can absolutely look into it.

Josh:

make it like a team thing instead of a, if this will fix your mental health, let you, should you have to do it kind of thing.

Josh:

That's that's the vibe I got not, that's not saying he's the asshole.

Josh:

Just saying that he could have maybe approached it a bit better.

Josh:

I'm not saying she's the asshole either, because I think she may be just as well, unless it is something under underlying, then maybe she's the asshole for not addressing it.

Josh:

But,

Alex:

It's yeah, it's hard to say.

Alex:

Right.

Alex:

And you're right with the wording too.

Alex:

It sounds as if, maybe the way he said it, made it sound to her that it's a problem and that, you know what I mean?

Alex:

Like if your, that insecure about it, it's like, well, no, no

Alex:

shit

Alex:

Sherlock.

Alex:

She keeps saying she wants a new nose every

Josh:

Yeah.

Josh:

She's clearly maybe insecure about it.

Alex:

Yeah.

Alex:

yeah, that's a toughie that it could go either way.

John:

It is tough, but Josh, I think you hit that point right

John:

on the nose.

Josh:

Yeah,

Josh:

Jesus.

Alex:

I was wondering, I was wondering

Josh:

Final verdict.

Josh:

I'm going to say, no, one's the asshole.

Josh:

I just feel it's a, it's a case of perhaps insecurity and that was handled poorly.

Josh:

I think he came, he was trying to come at it from good intentions and maybe just missed the mark a bit.

Josh:

and then she should have maybe been a bit more understanding that he's trying to help me and I should try and see that.

Josh:

So I feel there's some sort of middle ground.

John:

No asshole closed booty.

Josh:

Close close, close booty.

John:

closed booty.

Alex:

close

Alex:

booty

Josh:

this post comes from user cheap apartment T and I read this username for a reason.

Josh:

So.

Josh:

Am I the asshole for telling my boyfriend that he can't date younger and then get upset about my budget apartment it's weirdly worded.

Josh:

What part?

Josh:

Don't you understand?

Alex:

The beginning,

Alex:

the

Alex:

middle

Alex:

and the end.

Josh:

Am I the asshole for telling my boyfriend that he can't date younger and get upset about my budget apartment?

John:

So is she the

Josh:

she's the younger

Alex:

the

John:

Okay.

Josh:

Yes.

Josh:

we'll get to the age difference.

Josh:

So I'll hop into it.

Josh:

Maybe it'll clear some things up.

Josh:

I too was a little confused reading the title, but it's okay.

Josh:

So recently I got together with a guy from my hobby.

Josh:

He asked me out first and I had some doubts.

Josh:

We'd work together as a couple because of the age difference.

Josh:

He's 35 and I'm 22.

Josh:

not a crazy age difference when you're

John:

Yeah.

Alex:

No consenting adults.

Alex:

Yeah.

Josh:

I'd

John:

there's consent

John:

involved.

Josh:

yeah,

Josh:

it seems to be, they did it a hobby together.

Josh:

It seems so.

Josh:

in a mutual area.

Josh:

So

Alex:

Ice fishing.

Alex:

Probably.

Alex:

That's what I think a lot of people do, I guess.

Alex:

I

Alex:

don't know.

Alex:

I,

Alex:

as soon as she said yeah, that hobby I'm like, yeah.

Alex:

Nice fishing.

Alex:

that makes sense.

Josh:

that was your first hobby.

Josh:

We don't do yoga.

Josh:

We go fishing.

Alex:

yeah.

Alex:

We go fishing in the dead of

Alex:

winter.

Josh:

Oh God.

Josh:

So in my apartment, since it's an old house that was originally a single family, there isn't much soundproofing.

Josh:

And the floors creak.

Josh:

When people move, I've gotten used to the sound of the guy upstairs getting up at 4:00 AM since he works at five and the sound of girls in the apartment to either side of mine, watching tele Novas, till midnight, taking work calls all day and having friends over on weekends.

Josh:

I know I went when I play music or have friends over some of the sound leaks through the walls.

Josh:

So I never get upset about hearing my neighbors because it goes both ways.

Josh:

That's a fair assessment, very mature for a 22 year old.

Alex:

extremely

Josh:

when my boyfriend started coming over more often, he had complaints about the neighbors, which put me in an awkward place.

Josh:

He wanted me to go speak to them or have me text them and I said, no, For example, one of the earlier times he stayed over, we went to bed around 10.

Josh:

He wanted me to ask my neighbor to turn down our TV.

Josh:

I said she didn't have it that loud.

Josh:

And

Alex:

loud.

Alex:

Could you

Josh:

at midnight.

Josh:

Anyway, then at 4:00 AM, he got very irritated with my upstairs neighbor getting up and cooking breakfast.

Josh:

I said that he would be done by five because that's when the shifts.

Josh:

And then at 7:00 AM, he was still trying to sleep in and the neighbor on the other side had some work calls that he study, couldn't sleep through.

Josh:

I offered him earplugs and he said he couldn't sleep with them.

Josh:

And either he wanted me to ask her to quiet down.

Josh:

He had similar comments every time he heard someone else in the building, just living their life, especially if it was when he was in bed.

Josh:

got frustrated with him and told him, you know, you can't expect to date a quote-unquote hot young 22 year old and not want to deal with 22 year old living situations.

Josh:

I don't know if you realize, but this is a normal apartment.

Josh:

My age, hell, my neighbors are pretty great.

Josh:

Nobody's throwing loud parties on work nights.

Josh:

Nobody's having screaming fights, nobody's having babies and quote.

Josh:

And then she says the young hot part was a sarcastic air quotes because those are his words.

Josh:

Apparently

Alex:

uh,

John:

do you say.

Alex:

yeah, take

Alex:

that

Josh:

Yeah, run with a girl.

Josh:

You go

Josh:

girl boss.

Josh:

so he got irritated and ask why I was bringing age into it.

Josh:

and I said, it's because he can't both want someone so young and also want someone with house kind of money.

Josh:

And he was being so out of touch with how normal people in their twenties live and thirties almost now.

Alex:

like what?

Alex:

He's 35.

Alex:

So he's

Alex:

like pushing 40

Josh:

Oh, yeah.

Josh:

Yeah, he is getting, getting close.

Josh:

he got really irritated with me bringing age into it and even more annoyed when I responded to his neighbor complaint in the future with okay.

Josh:

Boomer or telling him that he wanted, or tell him that if he wanted to have a rich person apartment, he could pay for it.

Josh:

Am I the asshole for what I said to my

Josh:

boyfriend?

John:

fucking not.

Alex:

not.

Alex:

I love this girl.

Alex:

If she's listening, send us your information.

Alex:

I just want to hug you and tell you.

Alex:

You are amazing.

John:

Uh, first of all, let me ask you a question girl, where the hell did y'all meet like the complaining conference.

John:

Cause God damn, this dude complains so much and you, right.

John:

You know, a lot of twenties, especially in today's market, it is so different.

John:

To find a good place would relatively cheap, cost of living.

John:

And you expect it to have like the bells and whistles of someone who would have a penthouse somewhere.

John:

You know what I'm saying?

John:

And, the fact that this girl has a mutual understanding, what all her neighbors that, you know, like she knows where to shift is they know kind of what the, how they are like when it's like they're watching TV or getting ready for work.

Alex:

Right.

John:

It seems like homeboy.

John:

Complaints to them much.

John:

And why can't he, why can't they say his place?

John:

The

Alex:

that that was, that was my question.

Alex:

I was like, where the fuck's his digs?

Alex:

Like where, where does he live?

Alex:

Does he have a house?

Alex:

To me, he's just being a party pooper.

Alex:

He's just pooping all over this party.

Alex:

And I don't think she's an asshole for a calling him a boomer because okay.

Alex:

Boomer.

Alex:

And secondly, because if he doesn't like it, then get the fuck out.

Alex:

Period.

Alex:

End of discussion.

Alex:

Like if you can't handle it, then why don't we.

Alex:

Go to your house or why don't we just figure out a way or eventually he should be able to be like, get accustomed to the sounds, right?

Alex:

The longer you stay in a place, the longer you get accustomed to the sounds around you.

Alex:

So you eventually fall asleep.

Alex:

It just sounds like he's a party

John:

Complainer, you know, as someone who's in their thirties with my knees, aching my back, hurting every single damn day, I get it.

John:

Devil's advocate loud noises.

John:

It do piss me off.

John:

But you know, you got to come up with a, with a middle ground with someone here and, you know, you understand the person's living arrangement already.

John:

Why don't you buy fucking AirPods that has noise cancellations.

John:

Why don't you get an ear plug and plug it up your ugly ass ears, like bro, like just.

John:

Chillax

John:

smoke some weed, do

Alex:

yes.

Alex:

Or like pounds of melatonin?

Alex:

Like, I.

John:

John:

Or YouTube pounded out till you fall asleep or some shit.

John:

I know

Alex:

Lbs something.

Alex:

My man,

Josh:

they are a Christian couple.

Josh:

Okay.

John:

I mean, you got a 22 year old and you 35, my guy, and you pull in that anyway in pounding that wave shit.

John:

You tripping,

Alex:

trippin.

Alex:

Absolutely.

Alex:

It's just, it sounds like he's one of those people that was just never happy and that will nitpick every little thing.

Alex:

But I wonder if he's also doing it to make himself feel better, to be like, oh, well, back at my place, it's so quiet and I don't have to worry about neighbors.

Alex:

It's you know, I, I could just, oh, I could just hear it.

Alex:

I bet you

Alex:

his names.

John:

Steve or some

Alex:

yes, Steve or Nick or Kevin.

Josh:

Now continue, keep naming white guys names.

John:

Alex:

Josh:

Oh, no, you.

Alex:

Alex:

Alex:

Oh,

Alex:

Josh:

Josh:

I got so many people in our audience right now.

Josh:

They're just, like, what the fuck did I do?

Alex:

Yeah, my boyfriend's name is Michael and he's a great guy.

Alex:

He would never

Josh:

I will, I will say, okay.

Josh:

I also agree he is an asshole and she

Josh:

is not the asshole.

Josh:

as someone who has issues with neighbors as

Alex:

Uh,

Josh:

uh, I I hate when it's like after 11, you know, that's, that's quiet hours, come on and I get it, but I would never go into someone's house and demand that they do.

Josh:

They're neighbors to keep it down.

Josh:

You know what I mean?

Josh:

That's another level of a Udacity.

Josh:

That's like these, these, this is, yeah, these, this is how these people live.

Josh:

They're happy.

Josh:

They seem to have no issues with each other.

Josh:

Why start stirring shit up with someone that you just started dating.

Josh:

Like that is just

Josh:

a recipe for getting yourself dumped

Alex:

Yeah.

Alex:

To quote the famous Ru Paul, if them bitches ain't paying your rent, pay them bitches.

Alex:

No mind.

Josh:

That is, that is an excellent point.

Josh:

You don't pay anything in this place.

Josh:

You have zero say, if you don't want to deal with this, either you take her to your place, which is apparently so much better.

Josh:

and then

Josh:

you give her that 30 year old money, you know,

Alex:

Yeah.

John:

No, sorry.

John:

It's 35.

Josh:

35.

Josh:

year old money.

Josh:

Sorry, John.

Alex:

get that boomer money, but

Alex:

yeah, it's just, I just, the Udacity, the entitlement,

Alex:

the fuckery of it all.

Alex:

I feel bad for this girl, cause she's probably like, it's such, it's gotta be such an awkward situation to be in when you have some, have a guest over and they're complaining about your space.

Alex:

It's like, well, shit, I can't do anything about it.

Alex:

Do you want me to move out tomorrow

Alex:

with what money in this

Alex:

economy?

Josh:

exactly.

Josh:

It's like, my employer keeps me under minimum wage.

Josh:

What do you want to like?

Josh:

that's very true.

Josh:

So I think we can all agree.

Josh:

She is not the asshole.

Josh:

He is definitely the asshole and the neighbors living

Josh:

their

Josh:

lives.

Josh:

Yeah.

Josh:

They seem to be all chill with each other.

Josh:

So,

John:

Homeboy's just suffering from back pains, knee eggs and receding

John:

hairline.

Josh:

Oh, I was going to say, uh, say a main, main character of

Alex:

Oh,

Josh:

a

Alex:

MaineCare he, he thinks he's the main character needs to be treated as

Alex:

Alex:

times.

background character.
