Adam talks about only caring about intent, honest mistakes don’t result him abusing people and he says “Maxifuckingpada” and then talks about Nick Davis taking his bags home stranding Adam without his stuff while out at the race track.
Adam explains how that was an honest mistake and shares how most people react to honest mistakes, he’s right, 13yrs of customer service over the phone confirms he is 100% right.
Nick says it was a group effort and tries to throw everyone under the bus as Gary laughs in the background and Drew mistakes Nick for Caelan.
Nick takes it in stride and Adam shares how his wife very kindly checked him into the room, she didn’t take his bag, he presumed that she must have taken it and not Nick.

Gary has another ad and is explaining how the other one was much more apt to what they were describing initially.
They’re watching the 2nd Yuban commercial and Adam says there is still a 3rd spot out there and it doesn’t have hair nor a black person like that spot.
Adam is back to commercials and how they are miniature chunks of society of a specific era when they were filmed.
Adam has a great point about filming in a craftsman home from the 1920’s and how they wouldn’t film there, they would build a modern kitchen set and film that.
Adam is back to the instant coffee story with his late grandmother.
Adam is going in depth on this story and how he would try and encourage his stepdad John to jump in on the coffee request so he could get the good stuff.
Drew is shitting on Adam’s point without even knowing it and he argues that society hadn’t bought in on freeze dried instant coffee, his grandmother knew it was the substandard choice.

Adam is taking it back to Caelan and his reduced pot smoking on the job, he’s making another point about that as caller Steve waits on the line.
