Oh wait, I get it, you meant that my post was too violent! See, I thought you meant I was agreeing with the wrong thing! Ok, no, I would never really burn down a restaurant and it was only the irony I was concerned with in my post! My bad, though, now I see where you're coming from. I think.

I don't really think that's true. I have great credit and could probably hold at least $20k if I went out an got a credit card (I believe my current cards have $10k; I suppose I should really know something like that!) but there is no way I could afford to pay off $20k all at once if for some strange reason I decided I needed to max out my card. I'd be working it off for many months, and if I had to pay rent and buy food and shit it'd be a different matter. Maybe the dad has a mortgage to pay off and other kids to put through school and doesn't have fifty thousand dollars lying around, but since he has never done anything this stupid before he wasn't worried about his high limit.

I think this kid was just trying to emulate the famous adage "Give me a bottle of your finest champagne!" to look good in front of his friends, and then just rolled with it. To be honest, I'd be super pissed if I had to pay for one $2500 bottle of anything, nevermind 19 bottles of the stuff. Then again, I'm not a college graduate so what do I know? Seriously, about what Hundley said; it's possible he was just so used to buying bottom-barrel liquor to get he and his friends drunk that he was unaware such a thing as $2500 champagne. There is no real excuse for not checking how much something can cost, especially when you're throwing away someone you care about's money.


I wasn't trying to imply that he had 50,000 lying around, but he certainly is most likely not being dragged into the poorhouse over this amount. It might create some hardship (as in some future plans might have to be put off or something), and almost certainly some lifestyles and habits will have to take a backseat to that massive debt (interest on that is a bitch no matter what rate the card is in), but that's the risk he took in the first place. I think most people are intelligent enough not to spend large amounts of money without knowing what they're spending (unless of course they're filthy rich and any tab is affordable).

Those who can, pay. Those who can't, delay.

that's still five and half grand on OTHER STUFF ALONE, which is still fucking absurd. makes you think PFFFT ASSHOLES DESERVED IT

that's what I get for being drunk and posting! yeah, at some point ordering that much is a LITTTTTTLE suspect.

it's either that or they just didn't realize stuff could cost that much which is sad as hell.

also love ned holeness  :fogetbackflip:

By the way, with all of you referring to the guy as 'kid', I'm wondering how old members of GW actually are.

i skipped over this completely, like, i knew it was a graduation celebration but i missed that he's "this 24-year-old kid"

yeah this is pretty silly, a celebration like this means he probably finished a fairly expensive buisiness degree anyway. if he really needs the money he can sell the hummer he got at highschool.

also how did the prices vary if he was asking for their finest? were they running out of the most expensive, so their finest was cheaper or something?
i think it's also illegal to serve alcohol to those that are intoxicated so that' no excuse

Old enough to be less impulsive than that kid was!

Sorry sir but you have bought a bottle already and your slightly drunk so we arnt to ween more money out of you, sorry but we dont care if its for your friends, we cannot sell you any more alcohol sir.


CAUSE THAT MAKES SENSE   (ps: CT, its to sellers discretion. so if he was really really tanked then the person who gave him the wine had the option to not give him it if he thought he was too drunk.

He might have been impulsive and irresponsible, but that doesn't change the fact that he's still a 24 year old man (although moron comes to mind) but I'm sure him and his family will survive. He's just gonna have to dip into that ol'trustfund of his to pay off this dept.

On the otherhand, I wish he was my friend haha that would have been an epic night (freeloading).

Man, that's classic. I bet he made a lot of friends that night. Whose fault is it? Who cares. Things like this happen when you give people the ability to spend the money which isn't theirs. If I was his father though I would make him work that off, with interest for the next couple of years. lel.

So, not once did any of his friends point out "Hey, this is our 7th/12th/15th bottle of champagne - can you afford this?".  He's lucky he wasn't at a half-way fancy restaurant (or maybe unlucky - a nice restaurant probably would've informed him how much the champagne was) - I've seen bottles of wine/champagne listed for $22,000, and cognac for $625 a glass.

Real Canadians drink whisky, anyway.

Okay, so while the story is technically true the way the OP posted it is completely skewed.

The kid did have his Dad's credit card and he went to a Strip Club with some buddies.  They partied it up in the private Champagne Room and likely did buy a lot of booze and lap dances.

HOWEVER, the strip club is getting sued by this kid's dad because they were supposed to stop serving booze at 4:00 am and they kept getting more and more for him and his friends (the last charge on the card was at 7:30ish in the morning).  Then they (the strip club employees) drove the kid home.

The bill wasn't JUST for the champagne, it was for the whole thing (private room, champagne, lap dances etc.).

I know there is a news article around somewhere.  I will link it when I find it.

So he asks for a bottle of "YOUR FINEST" 19 times...?
Did he seriously expect that to be cheap?

it's kind of peculiar, honestly.  i mean, if he's 24 and still getting a credit card from his dad, then i think it's safe to say he and his friends would still look like college kids.  if that was the case, then firstly what the hell were they doing in a place so high class that they had a need to keep even a third of the amount of bottles he bought instore, because a place that is not regularly frequented by really, really rich people does not keep 19+ bottles of $2500 champagne in stock.  and secondly, why would the bartender take a look at him, look at his card, which was probably not some platinum black//gold card that is very obviously like no limit and shit, and still opt not to mention that "their finest" was $2500 a bottle.  even if he bought one, alright, or TWO bottles, maybe that would be understandable.  but buying that many, for other people, would've been a point that i'd definitely say the bartender was REMISS IN JUDGMENT/responsibility for not bringing it up.  i mean, the kid is dumb for not checking and for going that nuts on his dad's card to begin with (seriously who takes the boys out for a night on the town on someone else's dime and BUYS THE ENTIRE ROOM CHAMPAGNE?), but i'd be inclined to hold the bartender accountable.

maybe he thought the guy was some rich guy's spoiled kid and was trying to get a gigantic fucking tip by driving the bill up, but past ohhhh say, $20,000, he really should've woke the fuck up and realized this was probably not going to end well for him OR the kid unless he was secretly jay-z in disguise.  plus that is kind of a sleazy thing to do with that much money anyway, but i guess it is easy to look at someone dropping that much cash on a night out as an opportunity to get couple month's rent out of them.

Shit like this is why I am happy I ALWAYS instinctively ask how much something is before I ever touch/whatever it! I am also happy I don't drink because this means energy drinks and fancy pop(IBC rootbeer!) constitute as "The finest"! The most they generally cost is 3-5$ a bottle!

What can I say? I have a sugar tooth and cant stand the taste of alcoholic beverages! I guess its blessing!

panda, according to REVELATIONS WITHIN THE TOPIC not all bottles were $2500, the most expensive few were and the others were just not quite as ridiculously expensive.
