KingKobra said:How are we STILL talking about the election *shakes head*. It’s like the endless circle of pointing fingers, he said she said, yadda, yadda, yadda. Just when it looks like we can talk about current events, it gets brought up again. This post isn’t about anyone in particular, just overall feeling.
So...this is what happened.and 2 others.
We got to chatting as he was working and I was getting along pretty well with him, we were laughing and joking around. After I while I felt pretty comfortable asking him and I said, "Listen, there's something I want to ask you..." and he cut me off and said "About the pizza, right?"
He said that he saw it on the counter and thought that it had been left there for him since he was working at dinner time - I left for work at 4:30pm...my gf came home at 7pm and he was gone, so he did his work sometime between 4:30-7:00. He told me that he ate a slice, then noticed the note that I'd left for my gf after he'd eaten it and didn't know what to do. He said that he regretted not leaving a note of his own and spent the whole night worrying that he'd get fired. His plan was to come and do the work today (he wasn't expecting me to be home) and order a pizza and leave it for us with a note explaining what happened. He seemed sincere, and I believed him. I told him that we didn't care about the pizza, we were just worried that other things might have gone missing...when I said that he went pale and told me that it didn't even occur to him. In criminology we call that an absence of mens rea - he was looking at the situation the way an innocent person would and lacked a guilty mind.
It turn out well!
