(Pictured is Mark Valley who played Brad
Chase on Boston Legal)
(Reposting this old post, it would appear
that Matt Prokop is a "That Guy" This is
whats happens when "That Guy" is never
told they're wrong and gets handed everything
to them. Thoughts with Sarah Hyland for being
a victim to "That Guy", of course Matt Prokop
would disagree, "That Guy" always does.)
There is a scene on the programme Boston Legal, where Alan Shore bursts into a Partner's meeting as they're about to vote onwhether Brad Chase should be become partner.
Alan Shore was incensed that his friend Jerry Espenson wasn't put up for the position, he looked up to the podium and saw a cut out of Brad's smiling face, looked at the partners and says something along the lines of "Does it always have to be that guy?"
That got me thinking, Why is it always that guy? In every aspect of life, it's always that guy.
It's always that guy who goes to a restaurant, and gets the best table, and gets the best service, and the best piece of steak.
It's always that guy who goes to a store in the mall, he will get served first, he wont get a smart alec shop assistant, he will get the best customer service possible.
Coming back from an overseas trip, that guy will fly thru customs and not get picked for a routine bag search.
Buying Panadol from the chemist,that guy wont get asked for ID, or the name of his G.P
Getting picked first for a team, whether it be as a kid on the sports field, a class room assignment, a project at work, or on some lame reality tv show, it's always that guy.
A group of friends having a discussion, people will listen to that guy first.
If different advice is handed out to someone in trouble, it's that guys advice they will take.
Your on a social media site, or at a dinner party, it's always that guy's jokes that people will laugh the hardest at.
If that guy's got the slightest problem in his life he will have a army of people, giving him sympathy and telling him he's special, and every issue in his life, is blown into a war and peace novel.
Heaven help you, if you don't like that guy, because I'm afraid in life, it's all about him.
That guy doesn't even have any negative syndrome name after him, if your short, you have short guy syndrome, if your fat, you have fat guy syndrome, if your ugly you have ugly guy syndrome, if you write a negative blog you have bitter guy syndrome, if you complain about that guy you have jealous guy syndrome, according to another blogger there is a "privilege denying guy", and of course there is "nice guy syndrome", they are the worst guys of the lot apparently, but that Guy doesn't have a negative syndrome, because he is that guy.
Can someone please please tell me, why does it always have to be that guy, or about that guy? Why is it always him?, he does nothing special, others do better, but its always him, isn't it?
Like I said this post was written from seeing an old Boston Legal clip, and a couple of incidents that went thru my head after seeing that Boston legal clip. I have never figured it out, why it always have to be about that guy, like I said in a previous post, this post is not earth shattering, it's not powerful and has no overbearing message, I just need to know, why is it always about that guy, and why is it always that guy?
Can someone tell me?
In a couple of days time, I will write about the other guy. He deserves some thinking about to, I'm guessing that guy will disagree.
