The problem of being involved in poker, pubs and online marketing is that you do end up dealing with a load of nutters, dreamers and plain downright weirdo’s. I would like to put myself in this category and probably include politicians.
C’mon lets be honest when you play poker you are basically putting money on a turn of a card! This is downright silly and dangerous. Just as in the beer business you basically give drugs to people who may be on the brink of doing something crazy and online marketing…well do I have to spell it out?
With politicians to say that they are or even borderline psychotic is doing psychosis a dis-services. All politicians and leaders are mad. They have to be! As a politician you are dealing with life and death issues that impinge on people you will probably never meet and not having a sense of what you are doing makes that particular job very un-natural.
Back to poker. At the moment I am dealing with a crazy person who is so bent and twisted that they cannot even lie straight in a bed. This person makes up some of the funniest tales you will likely to hear they only problem with them is that they have something I want and need, so I have to swallow the crap and play along with them until the moment comes when I can tell them to jump of a cliff.
They tell me tales of their illness, business deals, more illness, bad luck, business deals etc etc and all the time I have this gut wrenching pain, just dying to tell them shut up because it is all lies. While during one poker session I let it be known that I have not met their permanent detective who is supposed to be looking after them and all they could say is that I should not mention this in public as it could compromise their safety…AAAARRRGGGGHHHHH!
My desire to tell them to STFU is over whelming. I could do it right now but timing is everything and the way they play poker is enough to make you puke it is so silly. So to all those Walter Mitty types out there, ”…hello my name is Jack Reynard and I listen to idiots for a living, please to meet you….”!
