Pissed

You know I was in such a good mood after my fun weekend in Vegas with Jin. We had a ball, dressing up to go out, gambling, eating good food ect. I didn't even loose it when my mom dragged me shopping upon picking me up from the Airport and made me go to hellmart. But then...

Last night I called my friend that had given me $20 to "loose" in Vegas. Before leaving I had asked what if I win and she had said we'd split it 70/30. Well as you read in the previous post I did win - with Jin giving me the winning number. So I figured we'd split the money in 3. So when I mentioned to my friend that I had $13 for her from our winning she was pissed. I didn't think much about it until I walked into the Italian restaurant tonight. She was still mad and it turns out she was mad that I was only giving her $13 not the $20 + some of the winnings. And that did it, at that point all joy had gone. I knew then and there I didn't want anything to do with that cash. So I was going to give it all to her. Of course I was $14 short - $13 that I had given to Jin as her share and the $1 which chips I didn't cash since I liked it as a souvenir. But Karma must have been on my side as I made exactly $14 in cash tips so I stuffed it all in her purse.

She found it right before I left and got mad saying I didn't need to be a smartass. But honestly after her being mad at me all night for this I wasn't about to touch this again. There is no way in hell. She said she was going to play the lotto with it and split the money but honestly I do not want anything of it. Its caused to much grieve so there is no way in hell I'll touch it again.

I got home and told my mom about this. She said yet it is typical that if you win with someones money you are expected to give them the initial money and then the winnings. I don't know my question is what is proper? I mean I thought I was being generous splitting it even I never thought that the initial money would be given back I only thought about the winning. Oh well live and learn that was the last time I ever do that.

the rest of the week is busy too. I am working in the office Tuesday and then at the Italian at night and Wednesday its the office and then the German restaurant. And then its stay up all night so I can pack my stuff as we are leaving noonish Thursday. We'll stop at the Indian Restaurant for lunch on the way to the airport.

MC - thanks it just totally surprised me because that never had entered my mind.

I hate the post-vacation buzzkill, the moment when you're back at work and whatever reserves of fun and relaxation you built up over your holiday are totally destroyed by someone you work with.

For future reference, the usual thing for someone giving you money to bet is, if you win they get the original amount plus the winnings, and they should give you a cut as a thank you. Most visitors to Las Vegas get around this by simply saying they got drunk and lost it all.

Bubs - yeah my mom said the same but some other people said thats not the case. Anyhow I had no Idea that was the way to do it had it been said before hand when I asked it would have been okay. It wont happen again as I wont do it again - EVER its not worth the aggravation as I wouldn't lie about loosing it.

LOL!
What Bubs said!

Dino aka Katy said...

Jewels - I am guessing you mean the getting drunk and loosing it all right?

DAK: I have no idea what is proper, but if I were in your shoes I'd have reacted the same way. It would never have occurred to me to give the ORIGINAL + agreed-uon % of winnings!!! I'd have worked just with the winnings alone!

Now I know to never, ever, agree to take someone's money for this type of thing!! They wanna gamble - they can just buy the friggin airplane ticket themselves!!!!!!!!!!
