After a half-hour of pleasantries, he begins to tell stories of sexual conquest, wild parties, drag racing, and other machismo-esque stories. Always with the line, "This one time my buddies...."

    None of these things happened to him, only the people he knew. Although this guy was obvious very popular, at least, popular enough to call and tell stories to, he always missed out on the insanity that is the life of his buddies. I tried not to laugh at him, but I had to have that last drink. As he started the story, I interrupted him and blatantly asked why his friends never call him before they go on their wild adventures. He responded that he gets too wild when out with the boys. From what I gathered, this guy was far from wild. Quite boring, actually.


    So, what is worse: That guy in the bar spouting off all his "conquests", or the guy at the bar who is living vicariously through said "conquest" guy?

    I probably won't be going back to that place anytime soon.

    The guy was alone in the bar, give him a break. At least he didn't talk about the greatest Hawkeye victories or the 15 year streak from Hell.

    Due to the derailment of this thread, albeit quite hilariously done, I have edited my OP.

    Nothing worse than people calling each other by there handles at bars and sporting events.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    That was quite an edit. Those other guys suck , but I don't. Quit generalizing people like that.

    I hate when they grab each others' handles too. Get a room already.

    If I had three hands, that's the last thing I'd do. The first thing, two chicks at one time. Although, that'd be the first thing I'd do with my two hands I have now. Or one hand, or none I guess.
