Show Notes for Thursday July 5, 2018


Dear John,

My office did a big World Cup Pool and everyone was involved other than me. I'm not into sports and don't know anything about soccer. As the games have been happening, every conversation has been about the teams and who's ahead. I've kind of been left out because I didn't participate. Now they're planning a World Cup Party for the final game and someone signed me up to bring something for the party. I feel like it kind of sucks that I'm supposed to bring a bunch of treats for their party, but I feel like I'm not welcome at all. Should I just buy the chips and quit complaining? Should I tell them I don't want to be involved at all?

A Wild Wing CafĂ© waitress made the call to stop serving drinks to a customer who was too intoxicated, and when the man was cut off, it was the start to a violent, drunken outburst. William Banks of South Carolina was outraged when he was denied another alcoholic beverage at the popular chicken wing restaurant. In less than an hour after being refused service, he threatened to shoot multiple members of the Wild Wing Cafe staff, assaulted his waitress, then told the officer arresting him he would get him fired. The waitress said she cut Banks off from alcohol after observing how drunk he was, causing him to become “irate.” He then started cussing her out when she refused him anymore alcohol. Banks was charged with third-degree assault and battery and trespassing after notice. (
