Honoring a Bet...a RANT
 
So we had a friendly bet in our office. We put up two big signs, one a Texans logo and the other a Cowboys logo. Personnel were to write their name on the team that they supported. Both sides talked a tremendous amount of trash all week considering that both team are pretty bad, but it was fun and involved lots of side bets. The supporters of the losing team were to wear the winning teams colors this morning. I'd say about half of the Cowboys fans that participated honored the bet. I've heard everything from "I don't have a red shirt" to "the game was fixed". Sooooo, I had someone look at every name on that sheet and check to see if they were wearing red. Sooner or later, somebody will need a day off, need to borrow a trailer, want to take a dozer to their deer lease, or need a loan and I'm going to remember than they couldn't honor a simple, friendly bet.

And yes, if the Texans had lost I'd have felt the same way. The Cowboys fans that did honor the bet are ****** off too.;):D

Come on Mary. Wear your red!!! :)

Good on you. I can't stand people who don't own up to bets.

TENRMORE 10-08-2018 10:41 AM

I sit right beside one of the biggest cowboys fans there is, if they lose he doesn't say a word to anybody, he just sits over there and pouts all day. I've just never been a big fan of something I can't control, or whatever. I just don't get it

Now if I miss a big buck, I may sit over here all day and not talk to anybody.

I know the feeling. I have a "friend" that owed me $100 on a bet from over 10yrs ago that refused to pay. That was back when I really needed it too. I lost a bet about 7-8yrs ago for the same amount. I payed on the spot. I admit it hurt though! My pride and wallet. You aint worth a dime if you dont pay your bets.

I'm a Texans fan but I'll gladly wear the silver and blue in exchange for use of a dozer! :D ;)

Your Word is YOUR WORD....
My wife and Sister In Law gave me crap a year or so back when Texas / OU played. My nephew (13 yrs old at the time) is a big OU fan. I don't care for UT but I bet him $20 bucks that Texas would win. Well, Texas won and I told nephew to go get my money and pay me. He looked at me like I was joking...I wasn't. I explained to him that a bet is a BET...you honor it if you lose and be respectful if you win. I made the boy go get his money out of the piggy bank and pay me.... It wasn't about the money... I was a lesson that he needed to learn. If I had lost, he would have wanted me to pay...So he had to pay. Wife and SIL were all bent out of shape about it. I had to explain it to them aas well... Wife understood...SIL not so much...

I did use that 20 to pay for pizza later on for everyone...

I may not teach my kids all the life lessons that they need to know, but I try to teach them the ones I do know. They come out of a place in my heart that I want them to learn from and become better people for....As my elder family members have taught me...

I despise the Cowboys but I would HAPPILY do the same for use of a dozer.

Had this happen to me.....guess who was left out of stock options when I was handing them out? I never did calculate what that $500 cost him when I sold my company but it was around the 6 figure range.

Basically what I came here to answer. You can pick what you want me to wear for those perks. Well, what are your loan terms :eek:

This^^^^^ was my first thought when I read it :)

Slick8 10-08-2018 01:32 PM

Tell me more about this dozer and do you have any openings...?

Yes, I couldn't agree more. If you can't afford to pay then don't play.

Way to hang Mary! Can I borrow your dozer? :D

Atfulldraw 10-09-2018 06:48 AM

What size dozer?

I'm evaluating if it is worth it to act like I give a crap about football for a few days ;)

curtintex 10-09-2018 09:57 AM

Lmao at you dozermongers!

Acameron52 10-09-2018 10:06 AM

Gotta be good for your word.

Snowflake Killa 10-09-2018 10:07 AM

Thanks for the use of the dozer should have it back by the end of the month

Charles 10-09-2018 10:09 AM

I'll BET ya someone is gonna be ****** when they don't get to use your dozer.

Snowflake Killa 10-09-2018 10:09 AM

Sorry ! Can you send the fuel truck out getting low thanks

StrayDog 10-09-2018 10:13 AM

Would it have been acceptable if said Texans shirt was converted to a sleeveless, half-shirt with a sharp pocket knife?

I'll pay a bet I lost but I won't mope around doing so - at least try and find some humor.

AgHntr10 10-09-2018 10:15 AM

Do you have any forestry mulchers to loan? I really need to make some new shooting lanes. Let me know and I will PM my resume and put my Texans shirt on!

Boomerang 10-09-2018 10:18 AM

I have a few thousand feet of fence I need cleared, or miles. Just a small dozer job sometime. :D :D :D
