Home Wrecker

This story involves a woman who we will call Jane.  Jane has three kids and at the time of this story was unemployed.  Jane was visiting my establishment to get away from her kids and her “situation.”
I forgot to mention that Jane was recently divorced and her ex-husband took everything leaving her with pretty much nothing.  This provides the recipe for a scorned woman.  So Jane was at the bar and decided to tell me her story.  She looked sad as if she was about to cry and out of concern I asked what was wrong.  She was also carrying a bridal magazine (I’ll get to the importance of it later).  Jane had been able to survive unemployed because this guy she was talking to/dating was providing for her and the kids.  The catch is the guy was married and she was the “mistress.”
Somehow the wife found out about Jane and confronted her while she was working.  This instance caused a big scene at her job (hence the reason she was unemployed).  As a result the guy left his wife and decided to be with Jane.  Six months later the husband had a change of heart and decided to try and work things out with his wife.  Once again Jane was left to fend for herself (another ingredient for the recipe).  Here’s where the bridal magazine comes into play.  In that short period of time I guess talk of getting married had arisen.  That day she visited my establishment she was out looking for wedding gowns and such.  Also in that day the married guy decided to break things off with Jane (sounds like a soap opera right?)  So now Jane was drinking her sorrows away and trying to figure out her next move.  Because he provided for her, gave her money, etc. now she was back to square one.
If you decide to get involved with a married person, keep in mind that 1. Adultery is illegal in some states and charges can be pressed and 2. Imagine if you were on the other end of the stick and it was your husband/wife cheating on you.  Stay tuned tomorrow for "What Happened?: X-Games."

           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
