Slacker and Steve - OPP: Speed Therapy 4/22

Friday, April 22nd

We have a couple ‪OPP‬ s today, and since they are a little easier to solve, were calling this Speed Therapy! The first comes from Stephanie who doesn't feel its fair to split a huge dinner bill with friends. The second is from Brooklyn whose boyfriend spent a lot of money on a new dog, and she "hates dogs." What would you do if you were Stephanie or Brookyln?

Collector Steve tons a day. Thank you do you. The truth of the matter is sometimes OPT's. We get ones that just aren't. You know us to do for a whole hour gap we have like the smaller ones so we have a stack of them and we're just going to do as many as we can so Steve will read it. And will we he and I will dissect it and then you guys gotta give your advice and Williams won her next speech therapy to. What are gap now guys I let out on out of the bush I guess I don't I don't mean just he's physically and be really easy with the and guys guys guys. But does it and I don't know how to handle what I back is a common social situation. There are two with two or three different couples we occasionally meet for dinner. All my hubby hubby and I usually have a glass of wine at most when dining our friends tend to be heavy drinkers and always order by the bottle. I swear more time is spent drinking binge eating problem. When the bill comes I literally cringe when I hear our dinner companions cheerfully scream let's just split it don't look well. Hug it doesn't even cross their mind that we only ate food we don't have the nerve to explain. That we are shouldn't have to pay for their bottles of wine and so in the past we've always sucked it up and silently paid like the chumps we feel like at that moment. Lately we've been making excuses not to get together so I was wondering what other people do an awkward situations like this this is from Stefan. If you were if I'm just saying if I was in a situation needs my friends were getting short and missed it because I I do or your bottle guy I mean idea and he likes. I usually just try to peck. The whole thing you throw isms in India I thought oh yeah nothing but a good drive easier crazy OK I. This is that you pay for that even though oh. Yeah it's exhausts me I'd rather just I bet that's why don't go out very often because I just I hate doubting the end of the night where everybody's Psycho. And now we don't know I just did Gallinari but you're allergic to finish you shouldn't pay any of them I think. Take. Joy out of business heights that the newest tell this moment. Only know you suck the life out of this entire tank always so you're at Duracell familiar you you your bottle guy so I'm sure there's some friends. I'm like I'm like Manhattan got an original the drink switching do the other day you know we're rectangle one dirty up. That's a twelve dollars and sensitive. To your wizard girl whose drink you know how shall let setting a bunker some ten. That's not fair for you this footage on the middle your drink is. Twice as much every time you order why so when that check comes in I'm the world knew him drinkers had the least amount. What do why how to lie. And he. Got to beat all the cool off I OK I just ruin no PP because now nobody's gonna call I won't call you a tool to your face please. You know if you're one of these people who your seats. Little or whatever you don't drink and you go out your friends and they do drink or maybe they order more apps and you don't even indulge in you know you're on a diet. But I'd I'd also have friends who we go out and nights. The Weis always just as a side salad or whenever I guess sitting over here easy suing Al Saleh or whatever. Indian and I feel lights. I wanna be a the most what did you just you just don't know we need to seem. Right to split down the middle Blake to go wild if we pay 65%. And you read the forty but it. I just think doing it. You have to you have to continue to avoid these friends then the bottle ordering prisons humans in jazz power still but. I it's it's. I don't know how to fix this problem for so if you this why we call the speed therapy if you're a person who's who's had. Whatever it takes to step up and say something. I don't think it's hard I just think it's uncomfortable it is it's hot word do you do wit this sounds petty when you're not been pen you've ever right to do it. My question is if you're good deal. You do it while you're at the dinner when he checked it's there or do you do it next bingo hey mom. They're not the normal day and I just want the truth. And I. I don't know. Have you could call me the next day they do that napping at the end because I have paid for bottles of wine.
