Real phone conversation from a weird looking dude:
Guess what, your test is coming up in 2 days, and it will be 20% of your grade, I guess you're screwed. I am 39 years old, and you're 23. I'm all the way over this side of town, and you want me to head over to your house and help you with your test. Once I get there, we will be doing anything but studying. Your mother is 3 years older than I, and I'm doing this for her as a favor (really?). When I'm there, your mother is there too, she's going to think I'm a child molester!
