Here’s this week’s Ask The Morning After:
Hi Morning After!
I’m hoping you can help with an issue coming up
on New Year’s Eve. For the last 13 years or so, I
and about ten other friends have celebrated New
Year’s Eve at the same drinking establishment. We
go there because it’s big enough for all of us, but
small enough so we don’t get lost in a huge crowd.
As a matter of fact, this tradition led to me to a romantic
encounter with one of the main bartenders there.
I became romantically involved with “Jason” and it
became serious last New Year’s. But by September I
found out that he pulled the same pick-up routine on
another girl who frequents this bar, and I broke it off.
Needless to say, it wasn’t pleasant. Jason showed his
true colors, the break up was bitter, he said a lot of
things that hurt me deeply and now it makes me sick
to my stomach even looking at him. Lord knows I might
punch him if I have a drink or two in me.
While some in our group understand my desire to go to
another bar this year, about half of them don’t want to
change the tradition. I know I will have to see Jason if
we go there as they only have a few bartenders and
New Year’s Eve is essentially “all hands on deck” with
their limited staff.
How do I convince the group to go somewhere else? I
don’t want Jason to break up our group of friends either,
so anything tactful would help.
