Ghost of Kempsville past

So I received a text 3 days ago from chris mann asking what i've been up to. I haven't talked to him in like 5 years and know he would only text me for something, so i didn't respond. Anyways, i call Sal b/c he always has the scoop on kville peeps and he gives me the low-down on chris' story. Needless to say, Sal said chris is in trouble and will prob go to jail due to writing bad checks (sal got a call from a collection agency asking about chris and telling him that b/c sal was put down as a reference). Since Chris is so sketchy, I do not respond to his text.

Yesterday rolls around and I get another text. Out of pure humor, I decide to respond b/c I'm so curoius to see what he has to say. Word for word transcript:

Chris: Yo man u around?
Me: I don't live in va
Chris: haha I know what u been up to man
Me: Just working a bunch, u?
Chris: Got a question for u out of the blue
Me: ?
Chris: Well kinda need a favor. i moved into Pat's (sal's old roommate) and came up 300 short on rent, i am desperate and need a short term loan, any chance u could wire me the money and i will wire it right back friday next week with my 1st paycheck i just have nowhere else to go and cant lose my place i will have it right back friday i swear man i know this is out of nowhere but im desperate man.


This was yesterday and i still haven't responded. And I don't plan to either unless I decide to rip him a new ass hole. There are a few flaws in his story:
1) Rent is only like $350 or $400 a month, so when he says "i'm 300 short" it makes it seem as if he actually paid something of relevance. Instead, I'd be paying his entire rent.
2) Sal told me that Chris wrote Pat a check last week for rent and it never bounced. So that means Chris wants $300, and it's not for rent purposes.
3) Sal said Chris does not have a job. So what is this mythical "1st paycheck next Friday" shit?

In conclusion, I never even considered "loaning" him the money because I know I'd never see it again. In fact, I wasn't even going to ever respond to his random text in the first place b/c I knew he'd ask me for something. But the fact that he blatantly lied to me several times in the same text, makes me so mad that I want to send him a text calling him out on all of this bullshit. The only reason I don't is because it puts Sal under the spotlight when he shouldn't even be involved. Before writing this blog entry I wasn't that mad, but now I'm getting more and more POed by the second and want to let him know why he is such a dumb fuck. Who does he think he is? He can't pull one by the ol' ba ba ba ba booooooooon.

hahahahahaha, classic.....i can add to this story as well. tista has received a couple of calls asking about chris, which we both assume is probably creditors or some bullshit. he just says dont know him and hangs up. also, id say about a month ago i happened to notice on triple c's facebook wall some black dude had posted like 3 times saying something along the lines of "you no paying " insert expletive", im gonna kill you, pay me my rent". There was about 3 of these posts, that were removed by the time i got home from work.

dude will definetly be caught at some point and face some serious jail time, unless hes killed first by someone looking for their cash. id love to know what that dude does on the day to day, knowing that he has no job and no money. and you KNOW he never wouldve paid up that 300 either, which makes you wonder like how he could expect you to give him 300 knowing he wouldnt pay, and expect everything to be fine. i would definetly be irritated too, although i doubt calling him out would even matter knowing how fucked up in the head he is

pex said...

wait, so you're saying I shouldnt have sent him a $300 check?

Prime said...

hahahahah, that just made me let out a chuckle at the desk....

that kind of goes into the other thing i was thinking though, who else did he make a completely random call too? unless boon has been chillen with triple c everytime hes home, i find that to be incredibly out of the blue

Staboski said...

my guess to as why he called boon is probably because 1) Boon has a good job and 2) Boon isn't local. Maybe he thought that he hadn't had an word on what kind of trouble he was in since he doesn't live here and thougth boon could wire $300 no sweat? Just my guess, maybe we'll all get calls this weekend.

i should tell him the check is on the way. then when he opens the envelope there's just a piece of paper that says HAVE FUN IN JAIL LOSER

Prime said...

this is what trips just typed on his facebook.....

Chris Mann...
is feeling out of place and in the right place at the same time, feeling off tune and on key, feeling lonely and completely taken, wanting to get wasted but no drink, wanting life to throw a fastball ball down the middle and all he is seeing is curve...balls, i wanting things to change from being bad, and by bad stop being Chris Mann....

i never really understood why people put up with his bullshit from day 1. it didn't appeal to me then and it definitely doesn't appeal to me now.

he isn't worth the 30 seconds it would type to bitch him out, he will get what he deserves soon enough.

Staboski said...

This actually reminds me of when his step-dad, I guess thats what Paul was, called me back in the day when I hung out with them (so whats that 6-7 years ago?)And asked me if I could talk to someone at Grand to give him some more time to pay his account because he was past due. I was a stockguy then, it wasn't like I could do anything or had any pull back then. I did talk to Debs about it and she checked and I guess he wasn't that late and so they gave him a few more days. I'm not sure if thats how it was everytime it was due or if it was just a one time thing. He only called me on it one time.
