Something bad happened

Lately the only posts I do are of bad things, but sometimes that’s how life goes. At some point in the future I’ll likely start posting stories of good things that happened at open mic nights.

Tonight I went to the Boxing Donkey open mic. A lot of times I like this place a lot, but other times the crowd is retarded. There’s no other way to put it. I ask what they want to do, most of the time just drink or something else stupid. The stupidest thing about it is that they think that’s the best way to have a good time with me. I guess maybe for them it is. I never realized what truly horrible people they are until tonight. This girl said she wanted to do a body shot off my back. No harm in that right? Wrong. I lay down on the stage, she gets the shot, but instead of drinking it, she spills it all over my back, stuffs the shot glass down my pants, and gives me a wedgie. I was so shocked, I just lay there for a minute, and then she came back and did the wedgie even harder. I felt so humiliated, and disappointed, not so much by what she did, but because these people clearly cared so little about another human being. Not really sure what to do, I just sort of slunk off the stage, eventually going outside. A lot of the comedians comforted me and gave me hugs, which helped. Kind of puts me off wanting to go there for a while though, but we’ll see.
