You don’t know me and I don’t know you
If I turned to a stranger in a coffee shop and handed them $1,499 and then asked them to watch it while I went to the bathroom, would I be surprised if they walked out with it? No, I would not! I would be called an idiot by anyone with a brain that I trusted a stranger with 1,499 dollar bills. But for some reason we invest that same amount of money into a computer and EVERYONE’s cool with it?!
Trusting strangers is a horrible idea
I’m a decent person and I won’t steal your computer myself, but you don’t know that. What ever happened to STRANGER DANGER?
Oh geez, this is the weirdest timing...
... but I have to go to the bathroom now too. Probably because I keep writing about going to the bathroom! Anyways, will you watch my laptop?
