UPDATE (– Goldy):
In all fairness to Stefan and his reputation as a cheapskate, he paid for the pitcher. (Though I’ve got no idea what, if any he tipped.)

Two Jews and Brew.

good luck to the happy couple -

neither of you is very hot, ie. take it where you can find it after 30 – my friends call me practical in love matters -

remember, opposites attract, should stay spicy -

Doomed to be unrequited because Goldy’s not a goat.

6. Roger Rabbit spews:

So what’s next? Does Stefan punch out the bartender if the beer’s a tad warm?

Use your mind. Oops. You don’t have one. Use The Google.

In the garden, you tolerate days when you’re covered with manure if you want beautiful flowers.

Goldy, I hope you took a real long shower afterward.

10. Me, the original and only spews:

The body language and genuine-ness of the expressions says volumes.

One is friendly… the other is hostile;
One is confident… the other is a boob;
One is easy going… the other is a buttoned up.. boob;
One is natural in his demeanor… the other grasps his liquid courage like a lifeline.

If Stefan put his arm around me, I would be uncomfortable too. I would put one hand on my wallet too.

@ 11

Actually, Stefan was very nice that evening. The photo was taken the night of the general election in ’06. He mingled for a while, but when the returns came in showing the GOP getting slaughtered, he skedaddled.

All I can say about that outburst of Stephen’s on Goldy’s how last night:

1. This wasn’t about his son, it is pretty obvious that this was all about him.

2. Touched a nerve, eh?

3. He didn’t do himself any favors by calling in…it made him sound, well, like a dickhead.

4. If you are out at a restaurant you frequent as often as he stated, and your kid is acting like a monkey demonspawn, you should really tip at least 20%, if you want to come in again with your head held high (and not have the staff “add” to your next order – really, Stephen should read some of the sites where waitstaff post their stories about ‘bad’ customers, it would be an eye-opener for him).

5. Yes, Stephen sounds cheap.

6. Removing all posts related to a subject on your blog isn’t very responsible. If one writes things that are so potentially embarrassing to anybody involved that the posts must to be deleted, rather than updated, it indicates that very bad judgment was involved in the original posts.

7. It may have been the bosses’ right to fire the waitress for bad-mouthing a customer, but man, it is so out of line to go after the waitress past that point. Complain to management, sure, but what happened beyond that seems beyond the pale. But I’m sure all those deleted threads discussed that to death, right?

I don’t care if he’s cheap or not. I care if he’s an unhinged asshole who goes out of his way to hunt down and kill people who cross him in inconsequential ways.

This is exactly right. SS is a very sick person.

Hey Minnow – you forgot the gold chain.

Dumbass..

I just wonder if Sharky didn’t hock a loogie in Goldy’s beer when he wasn’t looking…..

18. Goldy spews:

My Left Foot @11,

If Stefan put his arm around me, I would be uncomfortable too. I would put one hand on my wallet too.

Stefan also once propositioned me in an Idaho restroom. And if Stefan denies it, he and his wife are free to sue me for defamation.

@18:

Next time I am ever at DL, Goldy, I will introduce myself and buy you a Manny’s just for that post. LOL!

What I can’t understand is why anyone would break bread with a vindictive prick. For any reason. At any time. I’ve mixed it up verbally with folks before; but, as a decent human being, I’d never–ever–cross the line and mess with someone’s livelihood just because they hut my widdle feewings.
While that poor waitress is probably frantic over her financial situation, you guys are sitting around having a beer with a vindictive prick, as if the guy is not a vindictive prick. No decent human being should want to be seen in public with the vindictive prick–unless this stuff is all a game to you guys…which, maybe it is.
This is not about acting professionally with someone with whom you disagree–I’m all for that: it’s about not understanding the value of hanging out with people who bully people –especially in such a devastating fashion–just because they can. Vindictive prick.
