need advice part 3
« Reply #1 on: July 02, 2017, 04:45:32 AM »
On these trips, a lot of drinking normally goes on. Really, I'm more of a gambler and less of a drinker. I've actually gone to Vegas on trips and not even touched a drop of beer or booze. However, with this group the drinking wasn't going to be avoided.

First night, I started drinking hard at 4.00 with my friend in the afternoon and it got ugly for me. Late that first night, Deadbeat #2 arrived on a flight. By time he arrived, I was very drunk and we were on Fremont Street watching a band. They made sure I got back to my hotel because I was that bad off. The next morning somehow I was about $125 short of what I thought I should have. Admittedly, I am kind of cheap and I am the type that keeps track of my money (splitting personal expenses and gaming expenses etc. - writing everything down) very carefully. Especially on casino trips, I want to track how my gambling is going.

Things are pretty foggy about that first night but there were three possible scenarios:
   a.     Deadbeat #2 took a hundred dollar bill out of my clothes after I passed out in the room. I could have spent the other $25   
                on drinks and not realized it?
   b.     I was sort of dancing / or falling on some girl by the end of the evening. Maybe she took it?
   c.     I dropped it somewhere along the way or somehow got wrong change from a bartender or something.

At the time, I wasn't happy but just thought it was either B or C.  But then more stuff started happening. The trip went on and Deadbeat #2 never pays me his share of the room. I'm a very non-confrontational person so I had trouble asking for it directly but left a few hints. After two nights downtown, we were changing hotels to a large off-strip hotel and I know he saw the bill for the first one. At times, I thought about saying something like "don't forget the $160" in front of my friend and his wife but just couldn't bring myself to take that step. By the end of the trip, I could tell he basically was out of money. Or he just wasn't going to spend it. I was frustrated with all of this but just let it go.
