Company Ink (Part 3)

In the first two installments to this story I share the reasons and provide examples of why I shy away from dating people that I work with.  If you haven’t read those stories before please do so.  This is the third (probably not final) reason why I stay away from dating people from work.
If you remember from “Company Ink (Part 2)” Mark and Susan broke up and they went on their marry ways.  This story involves two new people, we’ll call them Larry and Becky.  Once again names are important because things could get confusing otherwise.  So now Larry and Becky are dating, hanging out, being “involved,” or whatever you want to call it.  Larry was in his late 20’s and Becky hadn’t turned 20 yet (the makings of a disaster).  These two do their thing for a few months and all of a sudden Becky breaks it off.  She brings parting gifts and what not and I had to deal with a sad Larry all night.  Meanwhile a few days or weeks later they were back “together.”
So here is one of the kickers, Mark and Becky used to date when Becky first started working there.  Of course when Mark and Susan started dating Becky still had some lingering feelings and did little things to let Mark know that she was still “interested.”  But anyway, Larry planned a vacation for himself and Becky.  He talked about it, was excited, and ready to get away for awhile.  After Mark and Susan broke up, Becky started acting a little funny towards Larry (I’ll tell you later why).  She was back to the whole “I don’t want to continue whatever this is…thing.”  Meanwhile the vacation was quickly approaching.  So the week before the vacation, Becky decides to back out on Larry and not go.  The worst part is the vacation was fully paid for (well one of the worst parts).
Ok so here is the biggest kicker.  The reason why Becky backed out on the trip and was acting funny was because her and Mark were back talking!  Unbelievable, weeks after his break up with Susan he’s back talking to his ex.  Talk about sloppy seconds…As a result of all this, one employee quit her job and now there is an uneasy tension between Larry and Mark (personally I blame Becky).  If anyone has comments about this fiasco I would love to hear them or even if you have a “Company Ink” story of your own I would love to hear about it.
I am a person who tries to live a drama free life, having to deal with drama like this at home and work is just too stressful.  Dealing with it at home is bad enough.  Sometimes you have to pick your battles and battles should not be fought at your place of employment.  Also starting tomorrow, I have found pictures of drunken people and will post the picture and write a story of what I “think” happened (it’s going to be hilarious) so stay tuned and be on the lookout for those.  I will call these stories "What Happened?"

           These stories are real accounts, so if you plan to drink and have a good time do so responsibly. Remember to call a cab or a friend because the cost of a DWI is way more than a $20 cab ride home. Also, if you plan or happen to take someone home use protection. For two reasons, one there are many STD’s floating out there and it only takes one to ruin your life or that of others. The second reason is because a $3 condom is less expensive then 18 years of raising a child.  If you're interested in becoming a bartender or want to learn more about bartending visit
