Thank you. I realize that I probably yelled at you, which didn’t have to happen, and you’re obviously very patient and an a-1 excellent special type of person. Thank you. Can I take you out for coffee?

You gotta say yes— cause otherwise I’m going to have to try to give you cash— and that’s not cool, is it? You’re not some kind of lost animal valet— I don’t want to tip you— But if I can just buy you something, equal to equal, we can avoid any awkward intrusions from the capitalist machine. And, you know, it’s not a date. If you’re dating someone you don’t have to worry, because I’m not asking you out.
