Afternoon Edition - 7/26/05

Ewww… What’s This Rash?
Thank you to resident blogger La-La who brought the article regarding hotel sheets to my attention; hotels are now saving money by changing sheets less often. Granted, the report claims that all new customers get fresh sheets, but if your stay extends beyond a day, the chances are you are using the same sheets. Some chains, including Marriott, change sheets as infrequently as every three days. For those who take vacations that include freaky sheet damaging action at hotels, take note that you can request your sheets be changed daily. Presently customers aren’t aware that they can make such a request OR that sheets were not being changed daily.

On Blast
You’re out at a club having a grand time and realize that your good friend’s partner is out with someone else. You try to avoid being seen by them – and maybe avoid the drama of it all – but the bold partner approaches you and greets you, leaving their little side-dish at the bar. You exchange pleasantries and move on. Do you share the incident with your good friend? If so, what context do you put the story in? If you choose not to share the incident and your friend confronts you with the info first and says the partner said they saw you, what do you say? What is the politically correct thing to do in these instances?

J’Moo… we will be using your On Blast question tomorrow.

Keep passin’ the open windows…

You must TELL! You have to say something to your friend to avoid the drama of you not telling.

Now, when telling the story you should try to keep the emotion leveled because you are never sure how your friend is going to take the news. I would basically follow suit...meaning if my friend got angered by the incident, so would I and if he or she did not get upset, I would try my hardest not to let it show that I'm upset. You get the point.

Now as far as you not saying anything...that's a no-no.

I would call the friend and tell him/her to get to the club ASAP...there is something they need to see. They would see the incident for themselves and I wouldn't have to be as involved. I have done my part so let them fight it out.

I would take a picture with my camera phone and send it to my friend.

Run and tell it. RUN! You would want to know if your man/woman was diggin someone else out. Please, act like you know and be a Paul Revere to your homeboy/homegirl in a sensitive, caring and dignified manner.
I would ask the person in the club who is that and where is my friend?

Excellent idea!!!!! "You need to get down to the club!" is an excellent idea.

I'd step outside, pull my tire iron out of my car and bust the windshield and the back window of his car. I would then proceed to shoving that ice-pick I conveniently keep in my hatchback, straight into all four tires. I'd peacefully walk back into the club and let him know that his car had been vandalized and that I've done him/her the favor of calling their partner to pick them up.
**BTW J'Moo... My court case if scheduled for Sept. 8, but my legal aide says I should try to plead insanity... whatchu think?

Jeanine said...

I agree with Toy. I would tell them the story straight. Something like "I don't know if I'm reading to much into this but I saw your man at the club with a female I didn't know. They seemed to be together so you might want to check that out." I would put the partner on blast and be like, hey, what's up? Are you going to introduce me to your date?

LET ME BE CLEAR: If/When I get serious with someone and you see their ass out there, you BETTER tell me immediately and don't hold anything back. Withold info from me and you're PERMANENTLY cut-off. Friends are friends through thick and thin.

No the correct thing to do is to think; What would I want done right now, and then follow through...and a little gas and a match might come in handy

It's hard in my opinion because depending on the person you may tell them and who know they may still believe the guy/girl and the bullshit they give them. Then what? You are assed out and a trouble maker. I've been there myself at the age of 19 and it hurt me more then them and they got back together. She got sucked up by his conning bullshit.

However, in Hector's Case I would tell him because he seems to be able to take and not put me out in the street.

I would simply say (when asked) that I saw J'Moo out last night. (PERIOD).....and hope that I don't get pressed for details. Y'ALL KNOW THAT THE MESSENGER ALWAYS GETS KILLED. So be careful what you say. Of course if its my bestest buddy Cocoa, I'd make it my business to have pictures; DNA and other forensic evidence when I give him the scoop...lol. Seriously though its a tricky situation, and you have to use your judgement.

Cocoa Rican said...

Thank you to all that pledged their loyalty.... J'Moo...I'd bring you Martin's nuts in a contact lens case....

The Green-Gaint wouldn’t like you using his contact lens case for my baby’s nuts, nothing what the reason…
