He invites you to dine at one of his hotels, says “it’s on the house.” He talks entirely about himself and how lucky you are to be on a date with him. Afterwards he invites you up to his penthouse suite for drinks. You decline and he says “well, you’re a nasty, ugly slut anyway.”

A month later you receive a bill for the entire meal and the cost of the penthouse suite, including room service.

I am strongly leaning towards voting for The Klob if she makes it to super Tuesday which is when my state votes.

I was very surprised that the Klobuchar date didn’t involve talking to the manager.
