Mugging

Now that I have enticed you with the title lets review last weekend. So much fun stuff happened its hard to know where to start...but here's a thought...my husband was drugged and mugged. Catchy, I agree. He prefers Roofied and rolled, but this is my retelling of the story so I will choose the catchiest way to describe being drugged and stolen from. Without further a due...last weekend:

Hubs made a new Chinese friend a few weeks back who was having a birthday celebration last weekend. Friend is married, but wanted to have a men only birthday party (should have been the first clue that the night was doomed). So at 10ish, hubs left to go to the bar to meet the birthday crew. They were hanging out and having a good time until midnight when everyone wanted to go home.

-A little back story knowledge insert here: Chinese people haven't been experiencing bars for decades like us pros in the West, so they tend to go out, have a couple of drinks and head home an 1.5-2 hours later. That is NOT how my husband (Irish descendant) parties.

During the 2 hours that everyone was there, hubs made some new Chinese friends. So when his friends left, he hung out with the new friends...that's the last thing he remembers. Then I called him at 2 and he could barely talk.

-More back story: He had 4 margaritas...this is the same husband who I have seen down half a bottle of liquor and still be able to have a functioning conversation.

He came home at 7am the next morning. I had gotten literally 20 minutes of sleep. I was PISSED. Until he told me that he woke up on the deck of a restaurant with no phone and no money.

Moral of the story: In an all Chinese bar, they may not like laowai (foreigner)

Scariest thing that ever happened to you in a foreign country?

  1. I prefer drugged and mugged as well. I'm glad he was okay and all that was lost was money and a phone. I don't know what I would do if that ever happened to us.
