Money

Okay, so we have a local football pool among some friends. Nothing elaborate, we just pick between the 2 teams going head to head and then an overall tie score of the Monday night game. I am the money collector, holder and passer outer when the winner is achieved. Now why is it that one person who decided to get into it during the later few games and now the post season (yes we do post season too) has to call me incessantly before the games are even finished to see if they have won? I mean jesus, does this person really think I am going to hold the money from them if they win? I finally bit their head off this past weekend because I knew exactly who was calling and they didn’t stop after 1 call and leave a message, they called constantly one right after the other. How hard up can someone be for a piddly 40 bucks and I even let them slide the past 2 weeks which they still owe me. So even if this person won, they would only get part of it because they haven’t paid the past 2 weeks. And did I mention this was a family member? Ya, go figure… 😕

BTW Go GIANTS – this is who I am rooting for to go the Superbowl since my beloved Eagles aren’t in it.

    There’s always that ONE person who takes part in a Pool that’s annoying and needs to know rightthissecond if they won. I hate that.

    It’s a shame that people have a ruin a fun thing by being annoying. I would like to see the Giants make some waves in the playoff pool as well. I can’t stand the Cowboys so GO GIANTS!
