New York Should be Dubbed Sin City

Hello all. I'm going to bring you up to date on some of the happenings in my world over the past weekend.

My gal pal Cookie and I decided to have a nice girls weekend in New York. We planned a Broadway show, lots of eats and lots of shopping. It was all set to kick off on Friday.

Friday we made our way to New York by mid afternoon. She didn't tell me that the distance from the train station to the hotel was a million freakin miles and we were going to walk it! I was exhausted by the time we got to the hotel. I wanted to strangle that girl.

The show, Memphis, had an 8:00pm curtain call so we had a couple of hours on our hands. We checked into our room and settled in then decided to go to dinner before the show was to start. Dinner was great. The show was wonderful. If you ever get the chance to check out a Broadway show please do yourself a favor and see either Wicked or Memphis. Great shows.

Afterward we returned to the hotel and hunkered down for a much needed good nights sleep. The next day was all about shopping. We went to SoHo and shopped until our cash ran out and our credit/debit cards lost its magnetic stripping and couldn't be used anymore. Crazy!

After all that shopping we changed clothes and went for a nice Italian dinner. Shout out to Tramonti's! You guys RAWK! After dinner we decided on a comedy club. You'd think we'd go to the Laff Factory or Caroline's. Nope. Not these sophisticated gals about town. Nothing but the best for us so we decided to go to Ha! instead. Heard of it before? No? Exactly. That place was a piece of shit dump with weak comedians. Ridiculous. After the show I was totally exhausted and wanted to go to bed. Cookie wasn't havin' no parts of that and this is were things get a little interesting.

Cookie decides to go to the hotel bar for more drinking and I was like "peace". I was planning on seeing nothing but the back of my eyelids. I drift into a haze and a few hours later Cookie returns even more inebriated if that was possible. Plopped on her bed and proclaimed this was "the best New York trip EVER!" and kissed me on the cheek. I laughed at her drunken state. She then says "I'm going out with my new friend Sasha." Some chick she just met at the bar. I shouted out a "have fun and be careful" which was met with a loud "Boom" as the door immediately slammed shut behind her as she bounced down the hall. I shook my head at her and just prayed for the best. I drifted off to sleep and a few more hours later I heard her come in. She went straight to the bathroom and I never hear her come out. I drifted off but woke up again to some really weird sounds coming from the bathroom. I sat up in the bed for a second trying to determine if she was sick or needed help. It got quiet again so I laid my head down. Then moments later I hear muffled voices and hushed sounds. I remember thinking "No she didn't!". This girl brought back some random dude she just met back to our hotel room and was screwing him in our bathroom. I didn't know what to do. No one has ever done any bullshit like this before. I wrestled with the idea of storming into the bathroom and breaking up their little party and throwing dude's naked ass out. This crap went on for 2 more hours. I was getting steamed because she was putting not only her life at risk but mine too. I didn't know this guy. He's just some random dude she picked up from the street, He could be a serial killer for all I knew and she had him in MY room! You can play with your life all day long but DO NOT play with my life and safety.

I finally heard her let him out and plop on her bed to go to sleep. I thought about busting her little bubble right then but couldn't find the right words.

The next morning she never mentioned a word about her ho-ish ways the night before. I'm still not sure if or how to call her out on this. You better believe she will never do this crap again.

Well, I guess the good news is she didn't just screw him in the bed next to you? Srsly, WTF is wrong with people. I'd never even THINK of doing something like that!

I would have totally said something to her! How about basic respect? You are not in college anymore. This is just further reason why I generally get my own room when going away with my girlfriends.

JStar said...

Yea, thats a lil crazy...I dont do one night stands so I would feel the same way...

Anonymous said...

Hmm, what a weird weekend huh?

Senorita said...

OMG, that is just WRONG on so many levels.

So not cool, I really don't like sharing rooms with my girlfriends, you never know what they could pull on you.

I hope you call her out and lay down the rules. She owes you an apology for sure.

Now now, I agree that Tee should have been allowed a good nights sleep, however, don't completely dis on Cookie. For whatever reasons, she did what she did. It too is her room. 50/50 split. Though safety is always an issue....9 out of 10 times, the woman is safe. Chances are he may not have known Tee was even in the room.

Let's not forget that this was girls weekend and the rules tend to get bent during those times.

What happens in NYC stays there, right?

I would casually bring the convo up in the company of others, and let her tell her story to a group of people, chances are you will get the whole truth that way.

Tough spot to be in.

I've been on both ends of this story and lived to type this comment, so no harm no foul.

Oh - what a crazy friend. Do you think she remembers?

By they way - I spent the weekend in the other sin city - Vegas. :)

i agree with someone who said you bring the topic among some friends to know what she remembers of the trip...
may be she comes clean, or she acts stupid.
My husband says you ALWAYS remember what you do when you're drunk... so we'll see. :)

(BTW- it totally sucked she did that to you)

People will continue to act this way if you let them get away with it.

If she's too stupid to know that this is unacceptable, someone has to explain it to her.

“Bad Boys” and that Chick Named “Karma”

A recent reader, Briana, was kind enough to respond to one of my blogs. I appreciated her feedback. In her response she referred to an article in Urban Belle by Taren Vaughan, who discusses the archetype of the “Bad Boy.” Sometimes, Vaughan says, theses bad boys change their “childish ways and really become a respectful and loyal individual;” or else “that chick named ‘Karma’ will surely find them before too long.”

I believe in Karma. I do my best to believe in it all of the time, and so I find it necessary to examine my motives and underlying intentions when I do the things that I do. I also work to be at peace with my current course of action, in part, because I will see it again. That said, I see many situations when people invoke “Karma”
