When I was about 13, my grandma got me a Sega Dreamcast for my birthday. The problem was the store she bought the console didn't have the memory card/VMU for sale, and since I live in a small town in Brazil, it was the only one store that sold the Dreamcast. I was crazy about finishing Sonic Adventure (which came along with the Dreamcast), but I didn't have the VMU, so the furthest I went was the Knuckles stages.
I waited for a holiday and played it nonstop for more than 24 hours (minus eating and stuff) and I was able to finish the game in about 18 in-game hours. When I finally turned my Dreamcast off, I cried for like 10 minutes, since I knew I'd lost it all.
On the night that Silent Hill: Revelation came out, being a big Silent Hill fan, I went in with a friend dressed as Pyramid Head, expecting a large turn out for the premiere. I walked around the lobby for a while, handing out flyers for a haunted house I work at that supplied the costume, and talked to the staff of the theater for a while, a few of whom took pictures, and scaring random movie goers. Then, when I walked into the screening room, I held my blade high
. for about 10 people to see. Not exactly what I was expecting, but at least I didn't have to worry about blocking anyone's view.

I recently started dating my friends ex-wife. But he had set us up and he was happy that she was happy with me. On my birthday, while the three of us were drinking, he started to explain how his wife was sorta like a used car (and when you sell your used car to a buddy, you know they are going to take good care of your used car). It was sweet, however my girlfriend didn't appreciate being compared to as a used car (which was understandable). As he was leaving and still trying to explain what he meant, I said to him:
"Don't worry, I'll take good care of her. She she won't get a scratch."
He instantly knew exactly what I was doing and responded: "I got your word now, not a scratch?"
My goodbye to him: "Will you get going, you pirate?"
It probably would've gone better if she had been more familiar with Star Wars
Before I could officially start my new job, I had to attend a series of classes to learn the ropes. The trainers would ask us questions that they thought we wouldn't know the answer to so they would have something to talk about. The topic of "egress" came up, and how they use that term at work. They asked, "Does anybody here know what egress means?" I immediately said, "An egress is an exit." I had shocked my trainers and my fellow classmates, each of them wanted to know how I knew. I lied and said I had learned it in college. The truth lies within the classic Sega Genesis game Shining Force.
My roommate was out of town for Halloween & I had to work. So I thought I would get creative with the "no one here" sign
