2ND STOP PROSTITUTE

Picked up a prostitute in Chicago and I'm currently at her client's house (in the suburbs) WAITING because the pax whore did a second stop. She told me to wait 30 minutes...so I'm waiting.....How do I know she is a prostitute?....by the way she was dressed and made me stop at a 24hr Pharmacy to get some condoms on our way to her client because I told her I didn't have any....I'm currently waiting. I expect to make 100$ off of this trip with a tip because she already gave me 50$ to wait till she's done with business....the time right now is 2:47pm....In ELGIN, Illinois...
Now a few weeks back I picked up a drug dealer that used me to conduct business.......we pulled into a playground parking and he exchanged a duffel bag with another guy that was waiting for him.....and this drug dealer tipped me 30$ on top of asking me what kind of drug I preferred since his duffel bag inventory was stocked with all kinds of goodies....I politely declined and drove him home after he finished.....Now ofcourse, I didn't know he was a drug dealer until the stench of weed filled up my car and I'm sure that duffel bag was filled with weed....
Actually, this drug deal situation happened twice....with 2 different pax....First drug dealer I gave 1 star because he got into a fight with whomever he was doing the deal with and I had to step in.....I wasted a whole hour.....the fight broke because he didn't receive enough money...
Also.... I also picked up a Bonnie and Clyde type couple that were on the run from Casino security.....I don't know exactly what they did but as soon as I pulled into the parking lot, they asked me to drive as fast as I could....I drove about 10 miles away from the casino...and then the couple came clean about running from Casino security without details...Quite frankly, I didn't care for the details because the LESS I KNOW, THE BETTER....The couple then begged me to drive them back to the casino because their car was in the casino parking lot...They didn't want casino security catching their license plate number leaving so they decided to get an uber....so I drove them back to the casino entrance where their VAN was parked...they got in and they sped off fast....that was a 100$ tip.....like I said, I don't know the details but maybe they stole some casino chips or rigged a machine....but the kind of van they had was the kind of KIDNAP van you see in the movies.... surreal....
So I'm here waiting on this prostitute to handle business....she just texted me that she was taking a shower and she'll be out in another 10mins so I'm here.....waiting.....
Feel free to share similar stories cuz I'm sure I'm not the only 1 getting caught up in these crazy situations....

Went to first home game this past Friday!

Hi all!
This is continued from my quest to forge some friendships in the Poker room - you can read the first part of the journey here: https://www.reddit.com/pokecomments/8vdgdv/friendships_in_the_poker_room/
So, this past Friday, I went to my first home game that was organized by a couple of the regs at my poker room after I mentioned that I was going to stop going to the Elgin casino. So, the group of people at the home game voted to make it $5/10, which I was uncomfortable with, but went with it since this was my first time playing with them outside of the casino. I brought enough for 5 BI's (which I thought would be 10 BI's at 2/5). They also voted to have a no-cap on the BI, but I wanted to be conservative and was buying in with $1000 at a time.
Prior to starting, I requested to have the 1 seat due to my poor eyesight (as I always do at the casino when a new table opens). The organizer of the home game (we'll call him Bob to keep it anon) returned after 5 mins and asked everyone if they wanted to play Hot Seat Poker. I wasn't sure what this was, so I asked (anyone ever heard of this?). He explained it like this:
"We're going to draw a number from 2-9 before we start playing, since you decided to reserve the 1 seat we'll leave that number out Whatever number is picked, that will be the hot seat. What that means is, whenever someone wins the pot (with the exception of you, since we'll let you keep the 1 seat due to your vision issues), they'll get the dealer button, and move to the seat # that is drawn prior to the game while the dealer is shuffling, switching seats with whoever is currently seated there. I agreed, as did everyone else. Figured this could be fun, AND I get to keep my seat!
So, they let me do the honors - I drew a number - Seat 2 (directly to my left). When they were moving the hat, though, I thought I glimpsed another #2 in the hat, but couldn't be sure and didn't want to make a fuss over something - it was my first time at this home game, and I was the guest of honor for my comedy sketch.
Anyways, they immediately started serving drinks. I was three rum and cokes in before we even shuffled up and dealt. I had a few coolers and a few misplayed hands, and lost all 5 BI's in the next 6 hours. I had a great time though, and everyone else seemed to love my comedic schtick so much that they decided to invite me again, and organized the game around my preferred date. I have this Thursday off, so asked if it would work for them. Two people were hesitant, but after 5 mins returned and said they called in to work sick so they could make it.
I'm happy to say I'm finally finding friends outside of the casino since I recently moved to Illinois. Hoping that if we continue playing these home games, they'll want to hang out and maybe shoot some hoops or go to some bars as well.
