I have a bit of a problem.

You see, I really want to go play Poker tonight.

The plans have been made for over a week, and my schedule has been public. Everyone knows that this is Poker Night.

Yet a matter has come up on My Wife's side of the family, and it turns out that we are going to be having a Family Dinner here tonight. This was all last minute stuff, and I had even mentioned that I would leave later for Poker than I had originally intended. (I made it clear that I was still going, but that I would put it off for a bit.)

So my question is this: Is 15 minutes enough? Or can I cut and run as soon as my plate is clear?
Would that be too insensitive?

To be truthful, I'm not going to do that.
I'll end up being a hour and a half late. (Best guess.)
But I am a bit resentful that it's all being pushed aside at the last minute. I guess the selfish part of me has trouble letting go.

I'll take it out on the rest of the players at the table tonight.
All the chips will be MINE!

  1. Family things suck don't they?? Especially last minute ones.

    Best you can do is fake a heart attack and drive yourself to the 'hospital'.
