Well, on Thursday nights I go to play bingo with my mother. Well, a few weeks ago we had a run-in with this same lady from tonight. She buys so many
cards that she needs three seats to sit in and a few weeks ago, I didn't know that I was sitting in a seat she saved for herself. Instead of politely
saying that I was sitting in her seat, she had to come up behind me and take a tone with me and get all huffy about it. I still took the high road and
got up and politely moved as I apologized. My mother did not take the same route as I did. My mother glared at the woman for taking a tone with me for
an honest mistake and she got up and kicked her chair in before she moved making a show of it.
Well, what mom and I usually do is she'll buy 25 dollars worth of cards and then cut them in half so that we both play half of the cards. She still
pays for all of the cards and she gets all of the money anyway if I hit bingo on part of her set. I was really just there to get out of the house as I
have been on break and have had nothing to do. I could've really cared less if I won or not. Well, tonight trouble started again with this same lady.
It was the black out round (the one where you have to fill in every space on a card) and I won it and the prize earnings were 250 dollars. Well, this
lady and her sister went up to the front of the room and started screaming at the poor ladies at the desk demanding that my mother and I not get the
prize money and that we were somehow cheating. She then proceeded to drag a poor woman outside from the desk and continue to banter her more with
obscenities. A man that was helping out had to split up the fight and argue with her for a bit. The ladies were even getting violent. They were
waiting up at the front for my mother and I to leave saying such things as "Well, they can't sit there all night!" and so forth. The ladies were
eventually escorted away by people working there and mom and I still got our money. The man said that there would be no more card sharing from now on
even though we didn't do anything wrong and he even admitted it.
I shook the man's hand and thanked him for letting us keep the money anyway even after the uproar and he said I was welcome and he thanked me for
winning. A few people stayed after to comfort the ladies at the desk and assure my mother and I that we were not in the wrong and what we did was
perfectly okay since mom paid for all of the cards anyway and she's the one that I gave the earnings to. One of the ladies from the front desk said
she was quitting and wasn't coming back because she didn't have to take that kind of emotional abuse.
A few nice old ladies from town said that I could share cards with them any time, lol.
I just don't understand why people are getting so violent.
I mean, it's just a game and really, we did nothing wrong. After we got home, mom gave
me 50 dollars of it for my troubles though which I will be using this coming week to buy a computer program that I'm going to need for one of my
