Hi, I'm Angela, and this is Rocky And you are watching ashow with Ze Frank Sun just rose Goin' to pick up some shoes. This is one of those times where I know I have a massive boogie in my nose But I can't get it out. It's early My face is still outta whack I got the shoes Right there, and a banana, ate the banana You gotta pay for parking So these are, umm, from Matt What? "My best guess is that both babies and adults with fishtanks stuck on their heads are not supposed to use this." Who- What? Alright, there they are. Another man's shoes. What size are they, man? Aww, crap, hehe. Ten and a half... Heh, that's gonna be a problem. *sigh* Alright... My eleven and a half sneakers... Oohh, that's tight. That, that is a tight shoe. You can really feel the shoe, heh heh Alright, Matt, I'm wearing your shoes And now I'm gonna walk a mile in 'em. ...Up there. I see bunnies. Hi, little guy! VO: When Matt chose this reward, he sent me a note explaining why he chose it. VO: In 2006, during the original run of this show, Matt started feeling a tingling in his legs. It's beautiful... and I think I have to go to the bathroom. Yeah, I totally have to go to the bathroom. VO: He went to a couple doctors, no one found anything, but over the next few years it got worse. VO: And in 2010 a neurologist found a tumor on his spinal chord. VO: He had surgery and they got all the tumor out but in the process damaged the chord, VO: and when he woke up he couldn't more or feel his legs, or really anything below his ribs VO: He spent a couple months in the hospital, first in a wheelchair, then a walker, wearing the shoes that he'd come in with, size ten and a half Asics. VO: When his physical therapy wore those out, he still couldn't feel his feet, and trying out new shoes wasn't an option. VO: So he ordered the exact same pair, and as those wore, he ordered another, and another, seven pairs in all over twenty months of rehab. VO: And then they stopped making them. This is the last pair he bought. VO: He's better now, can walk without pain. VO: He made it through and wanted the last mile of these shoes to be part of the show. I've officially walked a mile in another man's shoes. I think I'm free to cast judgment now, hehe. VO: I created that reward as a joke, a conceptual joke, but maybe if you joke about empathy it has a way of smacking you in the head. VO: Look at all these footprints, all these comments, all these shoes to walk in. VO: And now the amazing Stefan Bucher will solve one of your problems. Lavarobot writes: "I just started seeing this girl, she is wonderful, and I know she likes me too," "But I'm completely mortified that I might mess things up. How do I not let my worries drive this woman away?" Well, you put your finger on it, Lavarobot, it is the worry that will drive her away, So we gotta get you to relax. We do that by giving you a disaster protocol. Take this button, but it on the back of your lapel, on the back of your tie maybe, So you know that if you screw up, you can flash that button, and you can have a conversation that can fix things. And that way you can relax about it and hopefully you won't screw up in the first place. There you go. Problem solved. "Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, it's the bye bye song."
