How To Be Awesome – Day 3

As mentioned previously, the old posse was back in Suckramento with a few new additions… So, we reunited and headed to our old hangout spot, Hangar 17, to get things started…

The Summer Crew…

When the J.O.D.D. crew of Nicki Tyler, Siena Manor and Justin Ames get together – adventure is bound to follow…

We weren’t disappointed because the evening was almost immediately spiced up by a little domestic disturbance. Enter Melissa Thomas

Now, I have not altered the above picture at all. A camera tells no lies and one can clearly see by looking at her eyes that Satan was with us that evening…

So, here’s what happened: We had a relatively large and celebratory group ranging from Old Man Jerry to Elle Daly (Now, bear in mind that we were in a bar and know everyone that works in this bar and even know the owners). Ok, so, Ms. Thomas was speaking on her cell phone and apparently didn’t care for us being awesome (noisy in this case). A rational person would have simply recognized that they were in a bar and moved or told their friend to call back later. After all, WE WERE IN A BAR. That isn’t what happened though…

Ms. Thomas sidled up to our table and in a particularly condescending voice sneered, “You know, you’re like two feet away from each other, do you have to yell?”

Now we’re a pleasant group and if someone had politely asked us to quiet down, we definitely would have – even though we were in a bar. Did I mention that we were in a bar? Ms. Thomas did not try that approach though and instead tried the bitchy, unpleasant approach. She picked the wrong crew to try that approach with…

I immediately started giggling like a little girl while Nicki fired back, “We’re in a bar.”

The retort from Ms. Thomas was, “Well, like eight people are complaining about you at the bar.”

We looked over at the bar. Seated at the bar were two of our friends, the guy she was with and, Autumn, one of the bar employees with whom we are friends…

So, again, Nicki was the first to fire back while I just continued laughing… “That’s funny because we’re friends with everyone at the bar except for the guy you’re with…

Ms. Thomas muttered some comment under her breath and retreated to the bar where she commenced trying to stare us down. That doesn’t impress me though, so I just took her picture – the one you see above…

One may wonder how I know the name of Ms. Thomas? Fortunately, we have Miss Manor in our crew and she was on the ball and obtained Melissa’s business card… Ms. Thomas was drunk, so perhaps I should be easier on her? Nah, I’m still pleasant when I’ve had something to drink. Rudeness is always unacceptable (at least when it’s directed at my crew or me).

Needless to say, this didn’t diminish in any way the maximizing of the evening (really, it enhanced it)… We stayed at Hangar 17 until after they closed and then decamped to Elixir to round out the evening. It was a solid start to the visit.

I love my life…
