i don’t like to think i know everything.
Lord knows i’m a virgin at a lot of things,
but i like to learn new shit to help me improve.
even if i’m called out and gotta look foolish.
so a few weeks ago,
i went out with my home vixen to a nice happy hour spot.
i wanted some fries and i asked the waitress…
“how much does it cost?”
she didn’t know off hand,
but she gave me a ballpark figure.
after she left,
my home vixen told me to never ask your server how much something costs.
“always ask to see the menu.
it looks real poor when you do that.
if you going to any restaurant,
and you’re on a budget,
ask to see what they got on their menu.”
i was a little embarrassed,
but it takes a real friend to pull you to the side.
i went out with the pretty vixen and we we went to an expensive store.
we were looking at some nice furniture and once piece didn’t have a price tag.
i should have known better.
i asked how much it cost and was told it was “2,000.00”.
should ‘ve known better.
later on in our outing,
i mentioned the conversation i had with my other home-vixen.
i was gonna tell you about what happened in the store.
never ask how much things cost if you aren’t planning on making a purchase.
when you go in a store and don’t see a price tag,
you should already assume it costs some money.
you know those types who go into places and are like:
‘YO HOW MUCH THIS BAG COST?!!’
it is the equivalent of that.”
i told her how embarrassed i was again.
i was internally beating myself up because i should know this shit.
“don’t be embarrassed.
it’s nothing to be embarrassed about.
just don’t do it again.
it’s better to say you didn’t know something and lerarn how to correct it.
i went out with a wolf who told me he never ordered steak from a restaurant before.
he asked me to cut his steak because he was clueless on how to do it.”
so the pretty vixen schooled me on how to handle this.
i wanted to share with the foxhole.
“when you go into a store and you don’t see a price tag on something,
try to find it.
if you can’t find it,
ask the sales person:
‘how much does something like this go for?’.
when you go to a restaurant,
always have an idea of how much you are going to spend.
you know a mixed drink is around 15-20 dollars in new yawk.
depending on the restaurant,
highest to lowest,
a plate can be about 20 to 30 (lowest).
always go to the restaurant website and get an idea of cost.
if you can’t afford it,
if you go to a restaurant and there NO PRICE on the menu,
in you head,
you should know you’ll be spending 100 to 200 on your meal.”
i felt stupid because i hold her opinion to such a high regard,
but i’m glad i was pulled to the side.
i asked her how did she learn this:
“i watched people who are wealthy and how they act/speak.
they don’t ask cost because they already know by research beforehand.
if they want to know something,
they don’t ask in a direct way.
it’s all in the language.
to be honest,
it’s a class system.”
good to know and will do better going forward.
i had to ask the foxhole…
Did you know this already?
i was out here looking like a dumb ass.
