Tell me a random story. Funny ones, scary ones, idc as long as it happened to you. I'm bored af and I don't want to study yet

I took driving lessons last year. One time, my instructor told me to park parallel in between two cars. Alright, that's easy. I drive all the way to the parking spot. I look behind the car, and reach for the gear stick as i prepare to shift to reverse. But with my luck, I accidentally grasp my instructor's knee instead of the gear stick.

It took me about 5 seconds to realize that it wasn't the gear stick lol. I put my face in my palms and shouted "OH MY GOD I'M SORRY" over and over again while he simultaneously said "it's okay."

I spent the remaining 2 hours trying to evade his advances (he was already hitting on me prior to this event).

My friends joke about it as that one time I almost grabbed another "gear stick"

May or may not come back with an actual story of my own later, but for now have this

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise? I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.

He could actually save people from death?

The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.

What happened to him?

He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.

A group of military commandos go down to Guatemala in search of missing cabinet ministers and missing fellow soldiers. They find all them dead and get some revenge on the guys that did. Unbeknownst to them, they are being stalked by an alien. The alien one by one picks them off. The commandos try to fight it with one last stand, but fail. While running from the alien, the team leader is separated from the last survivor. He decides to fight the alien one on one. He beats the alien, but the alien uses a self destruct to try to kill him. This time, the alien fails and the team leader returns home

Steve worked for an upscale temp agency. It was his job to fill difficult positions and ask the hard questions to see if people really qualified for the jobs they were after.

It was just another day at the office and a pile of folders had piled up in front of him. His schedule was jammed with back-to-back interviews and his eyes were on the clock, looking forward to going home.

He shifted a folder towards him, opened it up and quickly scanned over the unfilled position at Domico Veterinary. This was a hard one since the employer had a contract with the city shelter — and the job involved putting down overflow animals that were otherwise healthy.

Steve’s eyes grimaced. He hated having to fill this position, but he hated more that this position even existed in the first place. Most people know that animal shelters help animals, but what a lot don’t know is that they often shut down on Mondays to euthanise any unadopted ones. Euthanise is another name for "kill". It’s not something they want to do, but otherwise they won’t have room for new animals coming in.

Steve always felt bad on Sundays since he knew it was the last day for a lot of desperate dogs and cats. In a way he hoped by not filling this position he would save some animal lives — but he also knew that he was just dreaming rainbows, and that it had to be done.

Steve looked up as Nancy entered. Nancy was around 30, with long blond hair and a nice smile. She didn’t really look the “nerves of steel” type, but Clark hoped that this time around, looks would be deceiving.

He motioned for her to sit down. They made some small talk but then Clark cut to the chase.

“I’ll be honest and straightforward, and if you want the job, I need you to answer truthfully and directly too.”

She nodded, ready.

“What we’re really looking for is someone who won’t flinch at killing them."

Nancy didn’t flinch. This was a good sign.

“I can handle that,” said Nancy.

Inside Steve felt sick.

“A quarter of the job involves making sure they don’t get sick, but the rest is putting them down. You’ve obviously done that before?”

Nancy nodded her head.

“Off the record, how do you do it?”

Nancy thought about it for a moment.

“I’ve looked into their eyes and watched the life go out of them. I’ve done it in quite few different ways.”

Something about her statement disturbed Steve, but here was his first candidate who actually seemed fine with the position. She looked around nervously, not sure if she could continue… but she did.

“The younger they are the easier it is, since they don’t really know what’s coming next. The older ones can sense what you want to do — and put up a struggle. I always, of course, try not to do it unless I really, really have to.”

“I’m sure it must be hard,” empathised Steve.

“It is. But I’m really good at what I do and I’m discreet,” she said.

He shook Nancy’s hand and said he’d get back to her then placed her file on the great possibility pile.

As she was leaving, his next interviewee entered: a man in late 40s, with a long beard and pierced nose. Steve looked down at his desk, confused. In front of him was a folder to be the executive Nanny for several children.

“You’re here for the Nanny position?”

“No,” chuffed the bearded man, "for Domico Veterinary.”

Steve immediately hurried out of his office towards his assistant.

“The woman who walked in… what position was she here for?”

“The Nanny position. That was Nancy James. She comes highly recommended,” said his assistant.

Nanny position?
