Buying a boat with some friends to go to potahawk, an annual boat festival in Lake Erie. Bought the boat on Friday. Spent Saturday tuning it up. Sunday was the festival. While riding the boat there we ran out of gas. The wake behind the boat, which was overloaded with people and beer, then flooded the boat. Our boat sank in the middle of Lake Erie and the coast guard had to pick us up.

Ooph, this one hurts

My guess is this is the cheapest it could have gone and they likely didn't lose friends over it. Boats are nothing but heartache the longer you have them.

My “day of the week” socks. I already lost one of the Friday socks and now the whole thing is ruined

This actually made me laugh. The worst part is now you can’t even look forward to Friday.

I went to the MET Opera and ordered a whiskey cocktail at the bar. The bartender said “is this one fine” picking up a bottle from the bottom shelf, so I said “sure!” It was $27

I went to Vegas with my friends and we went to one of the night clubs. My friend and I ordered two vodka red bulls and we handed the guy a 50. The look he gave us, like we were the poorest mother fuckers ever. 63 dollars for two well drinks....

This is why I drink alone at home. Some may call it alcoholic, I call it savvy

I went to Kinky Boots on Broadway and their souvenir cup with a dirty Shirley cost me about the same. Still have that stupid cup tho.

My wife’s love of novelty cups is the biggest problem in our marriage. It takes forever to do the dishes for all these bizarre cups and we don’t have the shelf space.

If that’s the biggest problem in your marriage, I am very happy for you both :)
