The janitor starts the conversation by “waving” at Rebekah. He then writes, “Hi,” followed by “May I ask you something,” to which Rebekah replies, “yes, what’s up?”

He proceeds to ask, “How old are you now.” She doesn’t respond, and he sends a few more messages: “Can I be your friend now,” “Good morning,” and “Hi.”

The video then ends with Rebekah looking away from her laptop screen as she closes it shut. She captioned the video: “Logging off.”
