This is why you don't take people you just meant - and barely know - on a trip

    Damn dude, you are going to Vegas... Just buy a hooker. It's way, way, way cheaper.

    I love public shaming. Love it.

    And the guy is a rube.. a fool and his money soon go separate ways.

    I have a feeling that lawyer's gun has no bullets. And the lawyer knows it. So he goes to Deadspin. Why didn't they supply all of the e-mails so we can see what the whole back and forth looked like? Would have been awesome if he e-mailed her, and she wrote back thanking him for his generosity and the wonderful trip he treated her to.

    That was an interesting story. Yeah, the guy is a total fool. And I don't know that he has any legal ground in terms of recouping his money.

    Yeah, that was my first thought. If she hadn't replied with some shit about taking care of it immediately, I think she would be home free. I was wondering if her response could be used as an admission of guilt. Probably not.

    There is lots there making me giggle. Not the least is the thought of Adrian Grenier sitting somewhere right now, going, "WTF?" because of his phone lighting up with text messages.

    At least I can feel good about my credit cards being maxed out.

    I'm completely sure that this is the entire story and the guy in no way changed it to make his side seem better.

    Who meets a presumably hot, wild, adventurous woman in a bar, offers to take her with him to Vegas, then books separate rooms?? I hope the "romance kit" listed among her room charges was for servicing the poor idiot.

    I am a mean SOB, but I am hoping the romance kit was just for shits and giggles, and she laughed at the thought of the look on his face when he got the itemized charges.
