You bust up a classic car… will the old man beat you ass? Nope, just a funny quip about going to school.

8 ghetto kids break in your house on Halloween… will they steal you stuff, egg your house? Nope, just an apology and off they go.

A strange man pulls a gun on the job…will he shoot someone, will the cops come? Nope, just back to work.

Stories with anti-climatic endings, very well told (reminiscent of Ira Glass), with good music interludes. I’m hooked.

I agree, very nicely done.
