I guess I should start off this blog by apologizing to “Ed.” When I got to my favorite watering hole after leaving my moms birthday party and checking on things, I walked into the bar and I saw two women and a guy sitting at the bar. I sat next to one of the girls as Ed was sitting next to the other one. I didn’t know any of them so this was no big deal. After a few minutes of listening to the conversation, the ladies asked me to help them with coming up with ideas for an upcoming bridal shower. I plan parties so I jumped on this!!! I gave them a few ideas and they were actually excited about one of my party ideas. Everything was cool. Ed, sitting next to the girl on the far side, didn’t chime in much. At the time, I still don’t have any idea if these three people are together or not. But then, Ed’s to-go food arrives and its 2 LARGE pizzas. He paid his tab…And as he walked out, Ed gave the girl sitting next to me a business card and told her to call him. CLEARLY hitting on the girl next to me. He didn’t give a card to the other girl…Don’t ask me how I noticed but Ed DID have a wedding ring on. Ed, paid his tab as the girls and I are getting more friendly and he tabs out with his 2 LARGE pizzas… (our assumption is that he is going home to his family.) He says his goodbyes to the ladies and leaves.
15 minutes later, the bartender comes over and says to the girls: “Ed” took care of “your” tab. I (jokingly) said, “What a player move… Pay the tab, leave a business card, and leave!!!”)…”I hope he included me in the tab… since this clearly was a wedding shower planning party. They did love my ideas… And “their” tab could have included me”…We continued to order a few more drinks and put them on Ed’s tab since he said he was covering it. So, I’d like to say, THANKS ED… And I’m sorry if you weren’t trying to pay for my drinks!!!! Was I wrong in putting my two glasses of wine on Ed’s tab?
