Jesus Christ I just finished it. That ending was pure, straight discomfort. Or as the landlord would say:
Oh. Um. Well. Yeah. That. Well. Okay… Have a good day.August 4, 2017 at 4:11 pm #21306MarandaParticipant
The cringe was strong in that periscope. What’s to be gained with a move like this? What’s the lesson? I can’t see anything positive that could come out of stealing someone’s house plant. All it did was create tension between Buz and his landlord.August 4, 2017 at 4:12 pm #21307Hannah SchenckParticipant
SO incredibly awkward… but bravo… well done. You made everyone very uncomfortableAugust 4, 2017 at 4:12 pm #21308Bryan BishopParticipant
What’s the lesson?
I wonder if the lesson was as simple as You can do whatever the fuck you want and most people won’t do shit to stop you.
But damn. Still cringing over here.August 4, 2017 at 4:13 pm #21309Sarah MusnickyParticipant
I am very confused as to why this was a necessary task. To make Buz feel bad?August 4, 2017 at 4:13 pm #21310Hannah SchenckParticipantAugust 4, 2017 at 4:13 pm #21311Sarah MusnickyParticipant
@bcbishop I just saw your thing. That could definitely be a lesson because most people aren’t used to people doing whatever the fuck they want.August 4, 2017 at 4:14 pm #21312Winston SmithParticipant
@thebuz Suuuuper awkward. That felt icky just to watch.
The task was to take, not to keep. It’s probably not a great idea to piss off yer landlord. I don’t care if Noah was bored. You took risks, whatever happens to the plant, those are yours now.
Also, plants! Heh!August 4, 2017 at 4:15 pm #21314KevinParticipantAugust 4, 2017 at 4:15 pm #21315August 4, 2017 at 4:16 pm #21316Kevin HsuParticipant
Taking something requires dominance, without that it’s just stealing.August 4, 2017 at 4:16 pm #21317Brad RuweParticipant
So when do we take from The OSDM?August 4, 2017 at 4:18 pm #21319Buz WallickModerator
So I received this task from Noah to take something from a friend/neighbor/stranger. I went with my landlord, who is also an immersive theater guy and I was praying to sweet baby Jesus that he’d put it together that this had something to do with it. I don’t think he did. Here’s our correspondence before the periscope.
And then after I took his plant.
Shortly after arriving back to my apartment and setting the plant up in my patio Noah called me.
Noah: “Wellll done, my friend. Well done. Your guy was a good sport.”
Buz: “Yeah do I get to give him his plant back now and explain this shit?”
Noah: “Do this, go back, give him his plant back, and explain everything. Now you both know how easy this is. Oh fuck… shit… I gotta go. Okay bye.”
Never in this experience has Noah (let alone anyone) ever said bye to me. I found that.. odd. I didn’t hear a ruffling or anything like that so either he saw something or another more important call was coming in.
But it was nice I gotta a goodbye.
So I gave Tad back his plant and explained everything. His exact words were “Oh thank christ.”
Now I need to dry off my clothes because I am soaked in sweat. That was the most cringe inducing experience I’ve ever had. But not going to lie, it was exhilarating.August 4, 2017 at 4:18 pm #21320MarandaParticipant
@shankfx22 Sure, power in the short term. But now all Buz has to show for it is a plant and a strained friendship. There aren’t any long-term benefits to such a move. Do things like that often enough and people will refuse to play ball, and then where will you be? Bus only got away with it because Tad gave him the benefit of the doubt. It won’t happen again.
