FACTS ABOUT ME
I recently got one of those viral Facebook thingies where you fill in things people don’t know about you and pass it on… though I am usually not much into them, I am going to share things with you that you probably didn’t know about me. I haven’t told many people…. Up to today. If you like my facts and want to meet me in person, send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
1: Between the ages of 13-15 I spent two years working for a family as a housekeeper. I used to try on the daughter’s shoes and she didn’t like it. Rightfully so!
2: When I was a young child in Brazil, I used to run back home after school because the girls there wanted to fight me. These days when I go back to my home town and I see them, it’s all good. I am also way taller now…lol
3: I was terrified of public speaking… it still scares me, but when I know about something you won’t shut me up. lol

We were too busy working to pay the damn rent.

When I saw her starting to cry, I marched out of the restaurant with my date and asked what was going on. She told me that the ride was 10 dollars and the driver didn’t want to take her CC. So I paid for it and asked for the receipt. I told her that she should call 311 and report the driver.

My girlfriend and I went to this place to eat, and we didn’t have much money. Before we ordered we looked at the prices, of course. So we ate, made friends with the waitress (don’t ask me how, we didn’t speak a word of English and she didn’t speak Spanish) and took pictures. When the bill came, we were more than 20 dollars off.
