we get in a cab headed to an unknown destination. my plan was to let the cab driver suggest and take us wherever he wants.
driver is korean, which makes me happy.
i start speaking to him in korean telling him to take me wherever he feels is the best place for us.
he is not even phased by the fact that i speak korean, not a single reaction...which is really abnormal. he simply instantly responded to my question in this really robotic sounding book fed english with hardcore korean accent:
When I was young man, time go by like an arrow.
Then I serve in army. Almost die two times but survive. Then, time go by like a bullet!
Now I am driving taxi everyday and I'm old man. Now, time go by like....
A MISSILE!!!!!!!! *insert crackling ballerest laugh i ever heard in my life*
Enjoy while you can. Tonight, you two enjoy at TREASURES!!!! *insert crackling ballerest laugh again*
(treasures is a strip club lol)
me and girl look at eachother, shrug and smile and accept our fate as the driver takes us to the location without saying a single other word. i get there, tip him well, and we go in and have fun
i get really fking drunk and end up in poker room (girl went to sleep). me, this guy, and this funny vietnamese guy (that ive played with) start playing a 3 man table going to fking war.
vietnamese guy wins a big pot off me, then instantly quits and starts walking around like a fag. this usually irritates poker players, but whatever, nothing i can do about it so i didn't care.
then im playing 1on1 vs the other guy, where he bets big and i make a huge bluff all-in. the guy is thinking a long time, studying me, and is about to fold. vietnamese guy comes back in and looks at me and goes 'I PLAYED WITH U BEFORE YOUNG MAN U LOOK LIKE BLUFFIN' (which is really really bad ettiquette thing to do when ur not involved in the hand, ESPECIALLY considering he wasn't even playing)
other guy looks at him
looks back at me
tosses in big wad of cash and makes the call
i tell vietnamese guy to suck my fucking dick and if he ever does that again i will fucking kill him
he apologizes, and i end up not that mad, cause once again w/e but i could feel my drunken nerves building up
then the vietnamese guy decides to start playing again but he secretly took 3000 off the table (another big no-no in poker)
i notice it and that was the last straw, i went ape shit talking the unrealest shit ever, as he kept trying to say sorry but i was saying some rly mean shit like his apologizes r worth less than the hairs on my ass. then he got rly mad and told me if i say anything else im gunna have a big problem. so i told him he already has a big mother fucking problem, by that time security had arrived and told us both to calm down and get the fuck out
so the vietnamese guy cashes out and leaves first (security doesnt escort either of us kinda weird). i then cashout and start following him out of the venetian on raging tilt
as im following him the korean cab drivers words ring in my ear.
'wtf r u doing dan. like at the end of the day who really cares? why the fuck am I living like a missile! need to tone it down to atleast an arrow'
so i run after him feeling rly fucking happy actually when he sees me he looks ready for a fight, but im like no man actually i came to apologize. what u did was kinda dickish but u did apologize many times i should have just let it go. then we had a heart to heart and he explained to me that he actually thought i had a big hand on my allin and he actually hates that other guy and wanted him to call me and lose to me. he also explained how broke and in debt he is which is why he tried to take money off table.
whether or not he was lying or just talking out of his ass to not look like a dick really didn't matter to me at that point.
all that mattered is that i was no longer a missile. i became a happy arrow.
