Please Don't hundred dollar dangle me!

Show off!

My stepson had his friend come over to visit, but for reasons I can't even imagine. His friend was no friend of ours. We didn't know the guy.

He was over just to pay us a visit. My stepson's manager at their company, who boasted of his forty-thousand dollar original oils on his walls. He pulled out a one-hundred-dollar bill and waved it in my face.

He said he won it along with several thousand in a poker match. - so, I guess it's easy come, easy go or FINDER'S KEEPERS, LOSERS, WEEPERS. - "LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY"

I thought to myself. How very rude of this guy! I was thinking of saying, "Please do not dangle that hundred in front of me." - but instead, I grabbed it from his hand and went around the room saying. "Thanks. We really could use that money." - while walking all around the room dangling the bill in the same manner my step-son's friend did to me.

I kept that hundred dollar bill and his friend never asked me to give it back. My wife was embarrassed by my actions, my step-son alarmed and surprised. His friend, angry from humiliation. I felt vindicated.

I was the one insulted. I taught that man a lesson. Don't hundred dollar dangle me or I will snatch it from your braggart hand.

Meds time, Anthony? Fantasy? Maybe true? I'm guessing this is no story. Weird. That's what the whole thing is, weird. I wonder about your stepson's associations? Guaranteed trouble, here. Can you spare $50?

LOL, just right. He was boasting. Pride goes before a fall.

Exactly. I was insulted and I wanted to teach the guy an expensive lesson. I would have given it back had he just asked. And Vincent, I don't have a single cent to spare. LOL

It happened, almost exactly as I wrote it.
