The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


Old School Chat Roulette …

It’s Monday.

You’re sitting in your beige cubicle hating your life.

Your boss loathes you …

Your company never recognises you …

Your colleagues never invite you to lunch …

Life is, as they say, utterly shit … so why not feel better and ring some random person in Sweden and have a chat.

No, I’m serious.

I did and while I didn’t get to talk to someone from Abba or even someone with a very Swedish name [mine was called Peter, which disappointed me greatly] I did get to talk to a very lovely elderly man who told me he can’t travel anymore which is why he signed up for this.

And then he told me I’d made his day.

Which made mine.

Which means it will most certainly make yours.

I know it all sounds like some sort of weird IKEA Flatpack Friends type thing, but it’s nice.

Especially on a Monday morning.

Comment by John

I don’t think this is old school chat roulette. Is it not the grown up and comfortable version of making prank calls to strangers.

Comment by George
