N. C. (Fat Albert style)

We were invited to a suprise birthday party over the weekend. I wasn't looking forward to it too much, but I went anyway. Kinda glad I did... it was a pretty good time. And I was able to catch up on some drinking. (Don't wanna fall too far behind on that, you know.)

I was a little uneasy because there was going to be some big money there. I don't know why, but I feel a bit out of place at times. Yes, I do have a couple of friends that have some major ching, but you'd never know it. They have no airs. Some of these folks did. While they've got some money, they've got no class.

I went to toss away my plate, and noticed that the garbage can was full. And because it was full, someone had dumped their plate down the wall behind the garbage. Accidents happen, but from the splatter marks on the wall, it looked like someone had just thrown the plate at the receptacle. I got the hostess, and we cleaned it up.

A short time later, I watched some dumbass dump the last of his beer in the pool as he walked back to the cooler... which was right next to a sink. Pissed me off, it did. Later, he came back and did the same. I was floored.

Now, I'm a peaceful man when drinking. I've woke up with my face hurting (yeah it's killing you) from smiling so much. I hardly ever get mad. But that set me off. I wanted to beat the crap out of the guy.

Not wanting to cause too much trouble, I just made some loud comments, which got me shushed. "He's just that way... " Well he's just an asshole, says I. And being shushed didn't improve my mood. Thankfully, he didn't come back on by. I might have gotten stupid.

I don't know. Maybe I'm just too anal, but I don't think that you should treat someone's house that way when they've opened it up to you. Just because they say, "Make yourself at home," doesn't mean you can mess their shit up.

But then again... I may be wrong.

No Class is right!

And you showed more restraint than I would have. I've been known to "show my ass" when someone pulls crap like that. Money doesn't impress me. Not at all.

T1G, you're right all the way. There is a big difference between an accident and someone who intentionally behaves like a pig. AWTM you are NO pig, a fox maybe but no pig! :-)

"Make yourself at home" usually doesn't mean, dump shit in my pool . . . cause really would he do that to his own pool?

I've been known to show my ass when put in situations like that too. Far more restraint than I have my friend, far more.

My question is, if they know he's that way, why do they invite him back? I don't invite assholes to my home, at least not intentionally. If I realize they are one, they're just never invited back. Ever. Again.

And that just goes beyond having no class. That's just selfish, self absorbed, king of assholishness.

Ditto what Bou said. What an asshole.

Isn't that the way it usually goes? He is doing something wrong and you get fussed at and shushed.

Hell I'd drown the asshole.

In the pool.

... awww, AWTM... it was an accident... and you vacuumed the whole living room afterwards!...

... and part of me says you were right, T1G... money or not, that guy needed a thumping...

Hey, you just might be allowed to come visit at my house sometime.... you don't drop cigarette butts all over the ground, do you?
