Hello, my name is Laura.
00:05
And today we'll have story time.
00:09
Two years ago when I came to LA, I was a cashier for a restaurant
00:14
where they treated me pretty poorly.
00:16
One day my friend Sam comes in to pick up a delivery and she's
00:19
like, oh my God, how are you doing?
00:21
And I'm like, oh, I hate this job.
00:23
I don't know what else to do.
00:23
She's like, hey, let's have lunch next week.
00:25
I think I have a job opportunity that you might like.
00:27
And I'm like, oh my God, that sounds amazing.
00:29
Thanks Sam.
00:29
You go, girl.
00:30
Another day happens.
00:31
And this really cute guy comes up to me to pick up an order.
00:36
He introduces himself as Sam and we start talking and I'm complaining
00:39
about my job again.
00:40
Trust me, guys.
00:40
I hated this job.
00:41
And I'm like, oh, this freaking job, he's like, don't you wish
00:44
there was a job where you had all the time in the world to do anything
00:47
you wanted?
00:48
And on top of that, you could be getting paid really big bucks
00:51
And I'm like, oh my gosh.
00:52
Yeah, that sounds really incredible.
00:53
And I'm like, really paying attention to him because I like
00:55
him.
00:55
He's a, he's very cute.
00:57
So he's like, guess what that job exists.
00:59
I'm like, what?
01:00
That's incredible.
01:01
Still, I don't care about the job.
01:03
He's just talking to me.
01:04
He's like, we should exchange phone numbers.
01:05
I'm like, uh yeah, so we can talk about the job A K A.
01:09
We gonna talk about ourselves because you don't even know
01:10
you're about to date me.
01:11
So we exchange phone numbers and then he's like, look, me and
01:14
my girlfriend work in this company and it's really amazing
01:17
I mean, as soon as he said, girlfriend, I was like, oh, great
01:20
I don't, I don't care about whatever the hell he's talking
01:22
about.
01:23
He has a girlfriend.
01:23
So then he goes away, he leaves and then he texts me two hours
01:26
later.
01:26
He's like, hey, Laura, I hope you don't feel obligated to do
01:29
this.
01:29
But I think you have really great energy and I think you'd be
01:32
great for the job.
01:33
And I'm like, no, no, I'm, I'm genuinely interested in this
01:36
job.
01:36
I was not interested.
01:37
I had to pretend he couldn't know that I liked him.
01:39
He's like, hey, in a week, I'll let you know when we'll have
01:42
lunch and I'm like, oh, ok, great.
01:44
A week passes and Sam texts me and they're like, hey, let's
01:47
meet up for lunch and I'm thinking, oh my God, this is great
01:50
My friend Sam is gonna offer me that job that she was talking
01:52
about.
01:53
I'm really excited.
01:54
So I go to Starbucks and I'm waiting for my friend Sam.
01:56
I'm like, where is she?
01:57
I'm waiting there.
01:58
She's not coming up.
01:59
And all of a sudden I see the guy that had a girlfriend that was
02:01
talking to me about like that weird job thing.
02:03
And he goes up to me, he's like, hey, Laura, I'm so glad you make
02:06
it.
02:06
And I'm like, say what now?
02:08
And I kept looking for my friend Sam.
02:10
And then I remembered, I'm like, oh my God, that wasn't my friend
02:12
Sam that had texted me.
02:13
It was cute, Sam with a girlfriend that texted me, I guess because
02:16
they both had job opportunities for me.
02:18
I guess that's why my got my brain mixed up also.
02:21
I just saved them both as Sam I should have.
02:23
So now I had to sit through this weird job opportunity that
02:27
I had no idea about.
02:28
We both sit down and he starts talking to me about the most incredible
02:31
job I've ever heard in my life.
02:33
You'll get the time you need to take care of your priorities
02:36
as an actress, as a writer and you'll be making money.
02:40
All you have to do is read this book, The Rich Dad, poor Dad book
02:44
You have to read it in less than a week and in less than a week
02:47
I'll text you and I'll see where you're at.
02:49
You got it.
02:50
And I'm like, sure.
02:53
So I go through in it, I start reading the book and my friend
02:56
made me is like, why are you doing it?
02:57
And I'm like, because you can't know that I like him.
03:00
That's why I'm still going through with it.
03:01
So I go, I was reading a stupid book and it's mildly interesting
03:05
but I'm not sure.
03:06
It sounds too good to be true.
03:08
I'm like, maybe he does see something different in me.
03:11
So he texts me again.
03:13
He's like, hey, Laura, did you read the book?
03:15
And I'm like, yes, I read the freaking book.
03:17
He's like, great.
03:18
Let's meet again.
03:18
And I'm like, fine.
03:21
So I go again and I need him again.
03:23
He's like, so what do you think about the book?
03:25
Did you understand it?
03:26
Like, how do you feel about it?
03:27
And this time his girlfriend was there?
03:28
So they're both talking to me about the stupid book and I'm
03:31
like, yeah, yeah, the book was great.
03:32
Um I want to be rich.
03:33
I want to be famous.
03:34
I want to be able to do everything.
03:35
But what exactly is it?
03:37
You still haven't told me what the job is about.
03:38
They're like, yeah, yeah, we can't tell you.
03:40
So what you have to do, you have to go to a seminar and from there
03:43
our founders, they're going to explain to you what this job
03:46
is really about.
03:47
Trust me, you'll be making so much money.
03:48
I'm like, hold up.
03:51
So, I don't know what this job is and you're making me go to a
03:53
seminar that's two hours away from my house.
03:55
Trust me, it's totally worth it.
03:57
I'm like, I guess so.
03:59
So I go home, I go to my friend.
04:02
I mean, he's like, hold on.
04:03
So you still don't know what this is about.
04:06
And I'm like, no, she's like, and you read the book, I'm like
04:08
I read the book.
04:08
I did absolutely everything in the end.
04:10
Mimi encouraged me not to go.
04:11
And so when he was like, oh, are you ready to go?
04:13
I'm like, no, you know what?
04:14
I, I, I'd rather not.
04:15
He's like, but I thought you were interested and I was like
04:17
you know what I wasn't interested.
04:19
OK, I liked you and that's all this was and I'm not interested
04:23
and I'm so sorry.
04:24
I wasted your time.
04:25
He's like, why did you keep coming?
04:26
And I was like, I don't know because they didn't want you to
04:30
know that I liked you.
04:31
But now you do and now I don't care.
04:32
Now I don't even like you because you have a stupid girlfriend
04:35
and like, honestly, like you're in a pyramid scheme.
04:37
He's like, it's not a pyramid scheme.
04:38
I'm like, ok, whatever, whatever you think it is.
04:40
Goodbye.
04:41
Thank you so much for your services.
04:43
And that's how I almost got into a pyramid scheme.
04:45
I genuinely want, wanted to know what it was, but they never
04:47
told me anyway.
04:48
If you guys have any topics that you guys would like me to touch
04:51
upon, let me know.
04:53
Also, have you guys ever been in a pyramid scheme?
04:55
What was your, what happened?
04:57
What was the pyramid scheme?
04:58
I never found out mine.
05:00
Thank God, I guess.
05:01
Right.
05:02
Because if not, I would have totally gone in on it.
05:07
Ok.
