A Moment of Weakness

Dear Monday Morning,

What the hell happened this weekend?  I recall saying saying hi to Friday night and hello to you now on Monday morning.  Facebook pictures depict me with friends at a bar (amongst other random locations).  However, the question remains…. where did all my money go!

Yes, even I can have moments of weakness when it comes to saving money or spending it more like it.  It’s like getting a drug addict to go sober.  It takes time, practice and will power.  Will power that I apparently am still lacking every now and then.

Basically, what happened to me this weekend is that I had some friends (a couple who has actually been dating 2 years) visiting from Europe and I wanted to have a good time!  I took them to a local pub and we had tons of laughs, played pool and in true style – had some delicious jager bombs!  Does anybody else think they taste like purple tylenol?

Anyways, the night was good but I did exactly what I know I shouldn’t.  I pulled out the credit card.  Worst mistake ever when at the bar.  I mean, I started out great.  I had only planned to have a pint or two.  I still had my cash in budget so I bought a pint of Canadian and paid for it right away.  I remember thinking, “good for me”.  Pfffft oh how far I would stray.

The next thing I knew I was heading towards the bathroom with full intention of coming right back but before I knew it I was at the bar ordering 4 jager bombs in addition to another pint of Canadian!  That, that moment right there was the beginning of the end.  I mean, everybody loved the shots and I was crowned King of the night but in the words of Seinfield “yaddayaddayadda” now I have no cash left and huge personals credit card payment I’m going to have to make.

That “yaddayaddayadda” was me ordering more drinks in case you thought, for maybe a second, I got my spending under control after those bombs.  Please, you give me too much credit.

yadda yadda yadda

So, it looks like if I want to do any dating, I’m either going to have to just sit back and watch my friends do it or really get some great ideas for freedating.  We’ll see how it goes.  Damage control is key at this point…. damage control and hang over control that is.

If you find yourself waking up with little memory of the past nights events and an empty wallet don’t dwell on it.  Yes, it sucks and sucks hard but just make a new plan to start making that money back.  Do odd jobs here and there for a neighbour or friend.  Don’t get  your morning coffee for a couple weeks, whatever.  We all slip up and the money is gone now so don’t beat yourself up over it.
