Okay, the popular question today is "why are you hanging out in questionable neighborhoods with a guy that has multiple arrest warrants?"
Well, here's the funny and very true answer...
I met the guy at an NA Meeting. I mean, everyone harps on me about going to meetings and being involved with the fellowship, and see what happens when I go to meetings?
Let me clarify...
Not always, but a lot of N.A. Meetings are held in not so nice neighborhoods. Think about it. If you lived in a nice area in your nice house with your nice car and your nice family, would you want a bunch of drug addicts congregating across the street in the community clubhouse or the nice church that you attend? Probably not. Whenever we try to start a new meeting we have a hard time finding a meeting place. Even though most addicts attending meetings are clean and doing the right thing, the label "drug addict" is just not so nice. So, that's the reason I was in a not so awesome neighborhood. The other part of the question, why am I hanging with the guy? Well, he's an older gentlemen, he has five years clean and he doesn't drive (now I know why).
So, he lives pretty close to me and I give him a ride home once in a while. We all pitch in and pick him up. I'm just the lucky one that got pulled over with him in the car.
Oh well. It was bound to happen. He was going to have to clean up his legal mess eventually, I just helped him do it sooner.
I gotta laugh with you Jay - I thought everyone knew to keep their mouth shut when getting pulled over. I mean, what was he thinking? And not to be rude, but I gotta say, this guy is a real ass sometimes. He is an older guy and he's just so cheap. He never offers to give me gas money, he acts like I owe him sometimes when I give him a ride. I mean, I'm not asking for a parade, but a simple "thank you" once in a while would be nice. Am I right??
That very night on the way home I had decided to myself that I wasn't giving him anymore rides home. He was being an ass and I was sick of it. I had even texted my sponsor to tell her and that's about the time I saw the cop up ahead.
It's karma baby. Maybe he'll think about his attitude while he's locked up.
And, the other question "how do I have money to pay this stuff?"
Well, I'm not on unemployment anymore, but I was. A few weeks ago I got a nice chunk of change back from Uncle Sam, so instead of spending it like I normally would... I had my mom hold on to it for me so that we could clean up my messes. So, I paid for most of it with my tax money and then my parents of course helped me too.
All of that money is now gone though so that's why I'm kicking up the job search.
On Kleo, when I hit six out of six I won about 40 bucks because I was playing 6 cents at a time instead of 15 cents like I normally play.
And then on four card keno when I hit five out of five I won 810 credits. So, one time I was just playing for a penny. I had only put a buck in the machine because I was wasting time waiting for my dad to finish. So, I won 8 bucks and ten cents.
And then, the other time I was playing for 2 cents and I won 16 bucks and 20 cents.
Hope this answers all of your questions guys!
