OKay so I acted out of character this past weekend…I feel like I emasculated my FI but I just want to know what you guys think? Here is what happened: (sorry it is kind of long)
This past weekend was my alma mater’s homecoming we go every year and it is always a lot of fun! So we parked our car and we are walking to the stadium it’s just me, FI, and my two younger brothers, one who is also an alumnus and one who is a current student there now. So there are always vendors lined up and down the street selling, food, shoes, clothes, jewelry, you name it. There was this guy that had an upside down cardboard box and a stack of cards. He was doing that game where you are supposed to “keep your eye on the card” and bet on where the “selected card” is when he’s done shifting the cards around. So I’m just walking and I turn around and FI and my bros have stopped and are watching as on-lookers. He started engaging them in the gamble saying “Pick the right card and show me a $100 and I’ll give you $200” So he kept insisting that FI show him $100, FI proceeds to show him a $100 and the gambler grabs it and keeps on going, that is the story my brothers and FI told me. Because at this point I’m looking from a distance and not really paying attention but my bro comes to me and tells me that FI just lost a $100…so I’m like WHAT! I walk over to the place and trying to understand what is going on and my other bro starts telling me that he just grabbed FIs money even when he had the right card and he thinks the guy was cheating ppl…THAT is when I went OFF!
I go up to the gambling theif and curse him out saying alot of things that would make a sailor blush. I got loud telling him I would call the police if he didnt give FI back his MF’in money right now, told him he had 5 minutes to hand me the money or I would flip his box upside down and shove his cards down his throat, etc….I was livid. So he told FI “plz control your wife, tell her we just gambling”. So my brothers tell me to calm down and pull me aside…FI tells the guy that he didnt understand the game and that he was being cheated b/c he did pick the right card and he took his money ANYway. At the end of the day we find out the guy was cheating everyone that walked up to him. He had two other people there that were working with him and pretending like they were putting down big bets. So after FI hashes things out he gets his money back and started laughing at me. I was still fuming so it took me a few mins to calm down, and later on in the evening FI told me he felt embarassed. 🙁 That really broke my heart b/c in my mind I was just looking out for him and what is ours. He felt like I should’ve just let him talk things out and that I didnt have to get so worked up. I only got worked up because 1.) $100 is a LOT of money for some street hustler to just take from you 2.) I HATE liars and cheaters 3.) I was ANNOYED that we had stopped there anyway, I didnt understand why everyone didnt just keep walking
Do you guys think I was wrong for going off on the gambling theif? Or was I justified?
