Duquesne Club

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Duquesne Club

Post by hugodrax » Wed Jun 14, 2017 9:17 pm

One of the finest city clubs in the US. Went there this afternoon to have a cigar and a drink. Bastard valets wrecked my car.

That sucks. You'd think a fine club would keep their valet from drinking.

That sucks.

I once had a lady back over my Harley. She had no insurance. I let her go and did the repairs myself thinking it's only metal and plastic and hope someone shows me the same grace one day.

No tip.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

This car is cursed. But at the same time, I love it because I always walk away.

I'm not angry about this. I see the humor in the fact that valets at a super fancy place where I was just a guest thumped my car. And it isn't like they aren't heavily insured. I was joking with the guy that he should have bounced my Ford off one of the Bentleys.

That doesnt get you anywhere in life. People that might be trying to help clam right up.

Guys were very honesty top notch and hugely embarassed. They took photos, filled out forms acknowledging responsibility, just good people.

Now, I can get screwed down the line by the parent company, I suppose, but I'd be surprised. Bad luck, but good luck in a way, too

Did they give you a very fine cigar, compliments of the house?

No, they gave me a small shopping bag with all of the parts of the taillight. Club and valet company are two separate entities.

" wreckin' da Draxmobile down at de Duquesne" would be a good song I'd reckon.

It could be worse.

I've met hugo. He is a little bit like Ted Knight.
