How Plunk lost approximately $200 by trusting a friend. (And so can you!)

Posted by Plunk, 10 November 2013 · 503 views

This blog thing has been here for how long? And I just figured out how to use it? Seriously? What am I, turning into my dad or something?

Alright, so it's story time.
Once upon a time, there was a guy. We'll call this guy Plunk. Plunk was me.
So Plunk was kind of an idiot. He had this one friend, we'll call him, "Captain of the assholes." Plunk and Captain of the assholes used to live together for quite a while, and they had a pretty decent deal laid out. Plunk would pay for all the food, and Captain of the assholes would pay for all the bills. This was definitely in favor of Plunk.
One day, Captain of the assholes asked to borrow Plunk's $40 pair of shoes for work. Plunk, being a kind sole, (See what I did there?) agreed to let Captain of the assholes use his shoes. Plunk moved out a short time later, and decided to let Captain of the assholes use the shoes until Plunk needed them back.
Two months later, Plunk found out that Captain of the assholes had discovered his wife was having an affair. Captain of the assholes then dropped everything and moved to a different town, got an apartment and a new job, and hadn't told Plunk about it. Captain of the assholes had left Plunk's shoes in his locker at work, and by the time Plunk found out, the shoes were gone. Plunk lost $40.

Later, Plunk decided to go through his stuff that he'd packed when he moved out. He noticed that a few items were missing. Batman Arkham Asylum, $20. Fallout 3, $20. Resident Evil 6, $50. (At the time.) Dazzle Video Capture Device, $40. Plunk asked Captain of the asshole's ex-wife if she had the items. She let Plunk come look around for them. They were nowhere to be seen. When Plunk asked the lady if she had seen the items he described, she mentioned that Captain of the assholes had packed quite a few of them right in front of her. Plunk lost $170 total.

Plunk later went down to the same town as Captain of the assholes. He was playing Magic, as he is wont to do. Plunk saw Captain of the assholes, who then said something incredibly stupid to Plunk. "Hey dude, I'm in need of a bit of cash, could you pay me the $50 you owe me for the electric bill?" Plunk was pretty pissed off. He explained, with no lack of expletives to Captain of the assholes that the agreement when Plunk moved in was that he pay for food, and Captain of the assholes and his wife split the bills. Captain of the assholes apologized and said he'd forgotten. Plunk had brought a deck with him that had a couple valuable cards. Each about $10 a piece. Four in total. Playing in a tournament requires moving quite a bit, and Plunk had a lot of stuff with him that day. He asked Captain of the assholes to hold onto the extra deck, and went on his merry way playing for the rest of the night.

Plunk had forgotten before he headed home to grab his extra deck. "No big, I'm sure Captain of the assholes will hold on to it for me."
Two months later, Plunk finally came up with the funds to drive back down, play some Magic, and pick up his deck. When Plunk arrived, Captain of the assholes was nowhere to be found. His roommate was there, and Plunk asked him for assistance finding his deck. When they found the deck, Plunk went through it to make sure it was his. It was. But he noticed something odd. The deck was missing the four valuable cards.

Plunk was pissed. He went to the Magic store and told the owner about what had happened. The owner, Joel, replied, "Yeah, he was in here about a week or two ago, and he sold them off to some kid."

When Plunk confronted Captain of the assholes with this information, his response was, "Joel doesn't know what he's talking about. I didn't take your cards. How about you just leave me alone, I'll forget the money you owe me, and we'll call it even." Plunk walked away absolutely disgusted. He shook his fist at the Gods who would allow such an asshole to walk among men. Who takes over $200 in items from someone they've known for 16 years, and then has the balls to say that person owes them money?! Captain of the assholes, that's who.

Plunk had lost $210, and trust in someone he once called a friend.

Remember kids, don't leave your stuff unattended, no matter who it's with.

They were not a friend. Friends do not do that. :/

Did you talk to him about the games? I don't blame you if you didn't. When my ex and I of 3 months broke up I left 4 games valued at about $100 total and I didn't ask for them back.

 

But at least I got a ratty old T-shirt that literally has 13 holes in it

I talked to him about everything. He fervently denies that he took anything of mine, and still says I owe him money. Apparently he got thrown out of another Magic shop for stealing over $1000 worth of cards from a guy. He gave them back eventually, but not before he sold the most valuable cards.

What a cheap lesson. If only all lessons came that cheap! Lucky man!

Losing a friend is tough, especially if they go bad :(
