He told me he was going to pay for my smoothie when I arrived

Once I arrived, he said he had been likely to buy my smoothie

He told me he was going to pay for my smoothie because of how long it must have taken me to get there (I took a $15 Uber the smoothie was $8 when I arrived. It’s uncommon that a smoothie in Los Angeles feels as though the cheaper choice, but, alas, right here we had been). Already, it felt extremely transactional. Then proceeded to share with me personally in regards to the five television pilots he would written (none of which have been made) and just just exactly just what he was well “known for.” In between explaining each pilot, he, needless to say, stopped to inquire about where I became from, I did for fun if I liked LA, and what. Simply joking! He would not do this. He did ask once if we worked in television, so when we stated “no,” he proceeded to explain still another pilot (i believe an adaptation of the kids’ novel, but darker and without charm). I became grateful the date lasted a hour that is mere fifteen minutes.

Back at my 2nd Raya date, I made the decision to regulate my objectives. Raya claims become a social networking,|network that is social} all things considered, therefore it makes sense that a couple industry may wish to discuss work. I do not operate in television, but i’m a author, and i realize the lay associated with the land. had been a television producer. Before we went, he made bull crap about how exactly he expected us to you will need to pitch him a show. At the least, we thought it had been a laugh possibly it was centered on their experiences with Raya. I truly do have several elevator pitches of television shows, but We pull them out somebody asks (or when I’m with my mother, okay?).

This producer had been worse as compared to writer (as a lady that is dated one comedy that is too many, i possibly couldn’t quite believe this, but therefore it was). (more…)
