The following is a true story.

The people are actual people.

Their names

are their actual names.

Everything has been thoroughly

researched and verified.

Dave and Andrew

are best friends.

They'd been best

since they were 9 years old.

Andrew was an extremely

nervous young man.

He was afraid

of just about everything.

Dave was totally self-centred

and could never

get things to go his way.

Neither of them

were popular with other kids.

And it wasn't long

before they realized

that their best chance of survival

was sticking together.

Tragically, Andrew's

anxieties grew worse

after his parents died.

Soon he became afraid

to even leave his house.

Like everything else

he attempted,

Dave's dream

of becoming a rock star...

was met

with unequivocal rejection.

Completely broke

and with nowhere else to go,

Dave moved in with Andrew,

who was himself

in desperate need of help.

With Dave there to provide

the basic necessities for living,

and Andrew there to provide

the support of a good friend,

Dave braved the outside world

and found employment.

And Andrew was able to stay

in the safety of their home

by working

as an online travel agent.


After a life-long struggle

with society,

Dave and Andrew

had finally found happiness...


Sadly, nothing lasts forever.

We're in love.

- You'll be fine.

- No!

No, I won't! I'll kill myself!


- You'll be fine.

- Why are you doing this?

- It doesn't matter.

- Yes! Yes, it does.

I just want to know

why you're abandoning me.

- I'm not abandoning you.

- Yes, you are!

- I'm moving on with my life.


- But it's garbage day!

- Then you take it out!

- I can't!

- You'll be fine!

Don't speak to the strange man.

[People snickering]

- Hey, how'd you guys do that?

That's, that's great!

but this - it's incredible!

Well done.

You can come in now.

- Crawford wants to see you.

- What? Why?

Well, maybe it's

about the promotion?

I mean, I've really been busting

my ass around here lately, so...

- Uh...


- That's probably what it is.


You wanted to see me, sir?

- Dave!

Get your crafty ass in here!

You thirsty?

Want something to drink?

- No, I'm fine. Thanks.

- He's fine!

Heh-heh. I like that!
