Serving as Keeper of the Rules

As two young men walked up, a couple of girls at the coffee shop said, “There are those two guys again. They’re going to keep coming around all the time, now. They think because we hung out the last three days with them, we’re their girlfriends now.”

Asher, who was fixing a PC on the spot for one of the girls (never leave a downed PC behind), responded “You ARE their girlfriends. Those are the rules. You hang out with them three times, and you’re their girlfriends.” When the girls protested, Asher added, “It doesn’t matter if you know the rules, like the rules, or agree with the rules. The rules work anyway. You’re their girlfriends, now.” They laughed and Asher smiled a long smile.
