A few nights ago my friend needed a place to crash and I offered him a spot on my couch. He gladly accepted and he came over with a six-pack and a box of Cheez-Its. We cracked open a few, smoked a bowl, and were making idle conversation when he suggested that we watch TV or a movie. We talked about what to watch for a minute before deciding on an episode of South Park. I quickly regretted my decision about watching TV because I found out that he’s a repeater. A repeater is someone who can’t watch anything without repeating back every joke, dramatic line, or memorable quip that a character says. It’s almost as if they are trying to take credit for what just happened on screen. Every single time Cartman said something funny, my friend would repeat it. He didn’t do the Cartman voice, so he wasn’t trying to mimic him. He would just restate everything that Cartman said. It was very bizarre, almost as if he was an alien trying to learn English. I didn’t tell him to shut the fuck up, but I made a mental note to never watch anything with him ever again. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
