The perennially strapped-for-cash Antonio was in rare form the other night. Obviously drunk and it was no surprise to me that he was kicked out for stealing from the charity jarâ€”he was especially desperate; reeking with hunger for more sweet alcohol. Before his ejection he asked Russ for a thousand dollars. A thousand. Dollars. Russ had leant him money before but this was a real all-in manner of request. When I heard this I felt a little insulted because Antonio asked me for only three dollars. Câ€™mon man!
