In a classic story coming out of Los Angeles, CA, 32-year-old Kimberly Lewis texted her friend ““heyyyyyy!” setting the stage to ask her if she could donate one of her kidneys.
“I thought I was just getting regular, normal text from one of my girlfriends,” Kimberly’s friend, Shauna, told us. “But I should’ve known that all of those y’s were asking for something before she even mentioned what it was. Ugh, not another kidney.”
Witnesses report that after Kimberly’s long struggle with kidney disease, she realized that she may actually need to search for someone who would be willing to donate one of their vital organs, which meant that she’d obviously have to open with a super casual, but also really friendly phrase.
“I knew I had to start asking around for potential donors, and I wanted to put my best foot forward,” Kimberly stated. “I also didn’t want to come on too strong. I wanted to seem approachable, and not like I’m gonna die if I don’t get a new kidney in the next two years, y’know? Like, it’s no big deal, but also, it would be super great if she could swing it?”
However, Kimberly got straight to the point in the second text, which read: “Could you donate one of your kidneys to me, girlie? No worries if not :)”
Shauna was reportedly supportive of her friend Kimberly, but the text did catch her a little off guard.
“I usually get a ‘heyyy’ before someone asks me if they can borrow one of my shirts, or if I can help them move,” Shauna told us. “But this one definitely caught me by surprise.”
Kimberly, on the other hand, doesn’t understand why this might be considered out of the ordinary.
“Normally I say ‘heyyyy’ before I ask anyone for anything,” Kimberly said. “So why would this be any different?”
At press time, Shauna responded to Kimberly’s text with, “Sorry girl, I can’t :( :( :( But I hope you can find someone else! <3 Luv u”
