What everyday skill becomes suspicious if you’re too good at it i once had a neighbor catch me while i was taking groceries out of my car and asked if i knew how to open lock doors as they locked themselves out by mistake went over to their door took out a credit card and shimmy my way in no more than five seconds probably bittersweet for them my boss locked herself

Out of the shop last week and i did this we’re getting new locks in a security system now but if you had told her how easy it is a week ago she wouldn’t have given a seeing as believing a couple of years ago i locked my keys in my car in a walmart parking lot i went in and asked if they could help me two employees came out with a jimmy but one guy made a bet

With the other that he could unlock my car in under a minute he then proceeded to unlock my car in 15 seconds i told him thanks you must have a lot of practice to which he laughed and walked away in interrogating someone without them knowing i was at a school thing and one of my girl classmates really liked a guy that was too nervous to talk to him she asked me

Start appearing behind people and freaking them out how long have you been there type things meister’s parents house has hardwood floors that everyone just stumps around on i don’t like making noise when i walk so according to them i sneak around the house and scare them unintentionally sometimes locating children so by an incidental combination of being a gear

Head and at one time a tow truck driver i am a little more observant when it comes to cars than most i also have a knack for numbers and memorize things unintentionally i stopped mentioning to people that i saw their car somewhere or other the movies for example it’s awkward explaining that i know your plate and can’t spot your pos sentra from across the parking

Lot i look at license plates i don’t know why but it’s every day for me but for some reason i pretty much had the license plate over a girl i like memorized it was easy to remember and we worked the same place together every day so i saw it a lot one time i almost slipped and said hey were you driving out of today and almost mentioned that the truck’s license plate

One brand over the other in terms of effectiveness eavesdropping i just passively listened to other people a lot when i’m alone even if i’m doing something else it gets really embarrassing when you bring up up information you’ve heard from their conversation forgetting that you weren’t involved or when you laugh at a joke said by someone across the room my previous
