Congratulations to Ninja, and to everyone else who submitted. The storygames were a lot of fun to read.
Now to watch a handful of them disappear forever...

It's too bad that Sherbert guy got shamed, I wish him the best of luck with getting out of the pit.

Chris Chan has a way of making me feel nauseous every time I'm reminded that he exists, and reading about this yesterday was no exception. Really hoping that he gets locked up (preferably away from other prisoners; can you imagine getting jailed for some petty crime and you end up having to share a cell with that?) and this is the last time I'll have to hear about him.

I'll enter the contest. I was going to write something sooner or later anyway, might as well do it now.

Congratulations to Wizzy!
In spite of the mass shaming, it was still really nice to get a handful of new storygames out of this contest. Looking forward to the next one!

Hey there, welcome to the site. I haven't been around very long, but I've found that this is a very nice community to be a part of and the storygames are a lot of fun to read. I hope you enjoy your time here as much as I have. Good luck with your writing!
Crackhead Cringe on 6/29/2021 12:51:19 PM
This one time, I was driving to visit some family living in Florida, but I ended up having to stop for gas in a particularly bad neighborhood. The gas station was right next to a convenience store, and sitting by the door next to a red bike (or rather, some scraps that resembled a bike) was the most obvious-looking crackhead I've ever seen in my life. Frighteningly skinny, strangely dizzy-looking, and even had white crumbs mixed with dried blood all over his upper lip. I kept a pretty good distance as I walked over after fueling up my car, asking if he wanted me to buy him a sandwich.
I've always felt sympathy for people like this, but my parents taught me that giving them food was a lot better than giving them money since they would probably end up spending the money on drugs. The guy initially declined and asked for fifty dollars instead, which I refused, after which he seemed happy to accept a sandwich.
So after I finished buying some stuff for myself for the remainder of the drive, I got him a turkey sandwich, but when I offered it to him right outside he seemed pretty confused. As I asked him if he didn't like turkey, he leaned forward and bit me. You'd be surprised how much it hurts to have your thumb bitten by a guy who probably has about three teeth. The guy started apologizing after I smacked him in the head to make him let go, but I didn't stay there any longer, dropped the sandwich, and got right back to my car. To this day, I'm grateful that I didn't catch anything from that bite, and even more grateful for the fact that I wasn't bitten by a crackhead with better teeth, and therefore got to keep my thumb.
Felt pretty stupid afterward, but hey, at least I learned an important life lesson.

Welcome! I hope you enjoy your stay here.
Although, it looks like you might already be getting a little bit too comfortable...
