Here is me, after 5 years of HRT in a gas station, wanted to refill the wiper fluid.
It was heavy. I could not open the bottle. I fought 5 minutes with it, and became aware of some big guys in the corner staring.
Went towards them, before I could say anything, the big guy took the bottle, opened it like a coke can and gave me. I smiled, thanked, but I think he was pretty proud of himself to help a desperate woman.
It was a nice, validating moment I wanted to share with you.
P.S: Goodbye to my muscle mass after all these years.
Hello readers. As a setting to the story, I'm an over the road truck drivers, so most of my time I spent inside the truck, that sometimes, not all the time, include getting rid of bodily fluid inside a container, mostly empty bottles.
Today I was having mad sweet tooth, so I'm indulging my craving with the largest container of fountain soda Pepsi, think of it as 7-11 double gulp size. I finished that bad boy in less than 1 hour. Yes, I know, it's literally not good, but it's already in my system now & I can't do anything about it.
As fast as it goes in, it's trying to come out as fast too, up to the point where I can't hold it anymore. As I'm in the middle of the highway & not near rest area at all, I pulled over to the closest shoulder, stop my truck, put the hazard light on, and proceed to relieve myself. I wasn't thinking of using an empty water bottle where I can close with twist cap because I can't hold it anymore so I proceed to grab the closest container, which is the Pepsi cup container.
Here's where I set myself up for the screw up. Since it's a cup container, I don't dare to put it down on the floor, because it might tilt and spill, so I put it back on the only cup holder big enough to hold the cup, which is the one closest to me. It's only halfway full, so the lid on the cup will at least be able to prevent the content from spilling from the shake of the truck.
After a few hours of driving, a feeling of dehydration gets to me. Instead of grabbing a bottle of water, my idiotic brain thinks that since I bought the largest container earlier, there should be at least a little bit of Pepsi left in the container. I grabbed the upper part of the container, completely missed the feeling of the warmth of the content since it's only half full, also without looking at the color of the contents because I'm too busy focusing on the road, and proceed to take a sip.
In less than a second, I spat the content, getting my dashboard wet everywhere with an unimaginable smell, perform another emergency stop at the nearest highway shoulder, and proceed to gag on the nearby bushes. I grabbed my toothbrush and toothpaste and proceed to brush my teeth in the middle of the highway because this needs more treatment than just water gargle. On top of it, I also had to wipe my dashboard with lysol wipe. Luckily, the spat content doesn't damage any electrical parts of the truck, such as the radio and the ac/heater control. And I'm not proud of what I did, but I l... keep reading on reddit ➡
I really don’t know what to say, beyond that, but I think that the whole storyline from start to finish was truly representative of why I love Cyberpunk 2077 as much as I do.
It didn’t feel forced, it wasn’t in-your-face, there was no shitty dialogue that reminded you that yes - Judy Alvarez is in fact gay.
From the beginning, Judy didn’t need to say she only liked women, she didn’t feel the need to tell V directly, the dialogue did the work for her - and that, to me, is a sign of the quality of the writing.
The occasions that the game gave you the chance to choose the flirtatious dialogue, and how tasteful it was, it left me wanting more.
No bigot sandwiches to be found, thankfully.
Edit: Duh, forgot to post it's from the GCX charity event earlier this summer.
2nd Edit: I got an email about it today from donating to the charity event.
3rd Edit: In this screenshot I was playing on my phone at work with Geforce Now. You can do the same thing with: Stadia, Xbox Game Pass or even Playstation Remote Play if you're a real madlad. Give the free options a try guys.
