Where does the good go

Gambling: the cause of and solution to all our problems

Just the other day I was thinking about how much I hate cheap people.
I don’t mean thrifty people or bargain hunters — that’s fine and good and I wish I had that kind of discipline. I mean the schmuck that goes out with a group for drinks and dinner and conveniently forgets that they shared in the wine or shorts the pot (umm…or whatever nonpoker term is applicable in this instance) for tips and tax, like the freeloading wastes of life that they are.
In my life, I’ve been very lucky to be surrounded by extremely generous people, especially when I was poor fish in a very wealthy pond as a teenager.
As I’ve grown up…er…older…and make a little bit more cheddar than the average bear, I’ve tried to pay that kindness forward, if not back. Right up until the point where I feel taken advantage of and then vaffles!
But reading Pauly’s blog today, I found the most awesome solution to beat the deadbeats!

On Tuesday, I lost at credit card roulette. I went out to dinner at Chat & Chew near Union Square with Spaceman, Rachel, Derek, and F Train. I asked Derek and F Train if they wanted to treat our out of town guests and play some credit roulette in the process. They agreed and we fanned out our three cards for the waiter to pick. Alas, our very gay waiter took mine as I screamed, “D’oh!”

How great is that??
