Shirkers are a byproduct of digressing societal values and social media. They are people who ‘JOIN’ every event on Facebook and make plans with friends but cancel at the last minute for excuses that offer NO validity. For example, when a ‘friend’ says, “I am too tired or I am not feeling well” that is just common bullshit excuses that are have only one meaning—I am a shirker, so fuck you! Shirkers are NOT your friends; they are using you when no one else is around!

AVOID BEING A SHIRKER: If you make plans, keep your word! If you must cancel for some reason, make sure you give the other person plenty of time make alternative plans. Most important, stop promising everyone that you are “coming” to a place or event and STOP ‘joining’ every Facebook event! Shirkers come in a variety of social characteristics, below are the most basic: The Schlock: This lazy swine is always hung-over or never has any money. Be weary of this filthy animal---he or she will bring you down. The Stratum: He or she will blow you off if another place or person will escalate their social status. Hampton Roads has many of these degenerate wannabe socialites. Phenomenon of Reactance: This nut job will turn the tables and make you feel like the canceling of the plans is your fault and they will make you feel like shit. /barhopmagazine

21 Play this game at a club, pub or lounge. Players take turns throwing three dice. Any roll of a “1” is called a “monkey”. Whoever throws the first monkey gets to order a drink. Whoever throws the seventh monkey has to taste the drink. Whoever throws the fourteenth monkey has to drink the drink. Whoever throws the twenty-first monkey has to pay for the drink EXCEPT when the player who rolled the fourteenth monkey hasn’t finished drinking the drink yet, then he/she has to pay for it himself/herself.
