    Sometimes I see the phone ring, with his picture on the caller ID and I just stare at the phone until it stops ringing.
    I hope you are fresh as you return his call.

    Let's start a fund to get him a white blond hooker provided we can film it (no homo).

    I would paypal five dollars to such a fund. Perhaps more if it was an elaborate ruse, having the escort pose as a hapless bird who incidentally happens to have yellow fever, and refers to tipping as "extortion"

    I use AP quotes all the time [​IMG]

    Just the other day someone commented about their weight and I told them "you can always be thinner. Look better."

    They just agreed with me.

    Does your friend spend a lot of time playing DDR?

    Arcade Infinity @ Diamond Plaza

    You should post the next time you guys plan to hang out so SFers in the area (like me) can observe him real life.

    I once had an ultra douche bag friend who had some incredible stories...but wow. I feel bad for you =(

    We should hold a dinner for schmucks/douchebags. We can wear RLPL tuxedos and each invite a "fool" to dinner. At the end we can give a prize to the biggest douchebag/schmuck.

    I haven't been on SF in awhile... but this threak is so epic it just pulled me back in. [​IMG] All rational logic has failed.... you need to use the following rap sayings on him. Scream them as loud as you can, repeat, and don't stop until he gives in: "CHECK YOURSELF BEFORE YOU WRECK YOURSELF" "STAY IN YOUR LANE" "PLAY YOUR POSITION SMALL SOLDIER" "CUT THE NOISE" That is all.

    You need to take this guy out every weekend to gather enough material to start a blog about his shenanigans.

    Agreed. You might as well make some money off of him for all the troubles he's caused you

    Just a little tidbit before the next post:

    So yesterday, douchefriend posts a link on my facebook wall with a link to the AE Hyde Parks, which are patent leather.

    [​IMG]

    I say, yeah they look nice, but they will probably only work for tuxedos. He says that he wants to get a pair that he can wear with his baggy, 2 sizes too big black suit with skinny (black) tie. "Yeah," he said, "I can even wear them with my (ratty) true religions!". Out of the entire allen edmonds line, he somehow picks the most inappropriate choice for a second pair of shoes. You must agree that, regardless of your opinion of patent leather black shoes, these are NOT a good choice for a second pair of shoes (his first being stained Bruno Magli captoes). I'd show him this site to help him understand, but...well, there are certain reasons that make that not possible.

    You should definitely tell him those would go PERFECTLY with his boot-cut True Religions, and let him wear that outfit the next time you guys go out. Seriously, though, why even bother trying to set him straight? I think it should be pretty obvious by now he's too far gone, and the only thing he's good for now is a few cheap laughs at his expense.

    Hah, way ahead of you. I was trying to get him to wear 3 inch heels so he could "look taller". Sadly, I don't think he's buying it.

    Maybe I'll try to make him wear opera pumps casually.
