HarpiesPosted: November 19, 2013
Harpy– “The literal meaning of the word seems to be “that which snatches” as it comes from the Greek word harpazein (ἁρπάζειν), which means “to snatch”.
i swear on my mother’s soul that this happened. it went down less than an hour of this post (i started typing at 2:00am EST).
the scene: my local watering hole/sports bar.
the protagonists- a VERY drunk man (late 20’s-early 30’s) and his wife- same age.
the actors- 3 women/3 men: an off duty police woman, a waitress of said local having a drink off clock, a female waitress of the local (married), manager (male), bartender (male), myself.
i will not post opinions, only what i witnessed. i’ll share my take on this after i give the facts.
i showed up at my local after doing an interview with Aurini and the bartender brought me my beer. i was watching football highlights. there was a woman (the cop) sitting in the middle of the bar (it’s a rectangle shaped bar) and talking with the bartender, she’s a regular. suddenly a woman (female protagonist) walked in, she was walking pretty quickly. i dismissed it and went back to watching ESPN. said woman left. aaaaaaaaalright.
the woman then stormed back in about 10 minutes later, camera phone in hand. well, when she first came in she was standing behind a bar pillar which obstructed my view, so i didn’t see much. well this time, she was in plain view. her posturing was VERY aggressive and she took a few pictures. then i heard “….while your fucking child cries himself to sleep.” she was pointing aggressively at the woman (off duty waitress, who was sitting alone until dude came over to her) and the on duty waitress as she spoke. i heard “……WHORE….” then she stormed out.
the bartender then took notice, the manager showed up, and i went on alert. guys from the kitchen started coming wondering what the fuck was going on. the woman came back in after a few minutes and was yelling at dude (he’d moved to the bar) and the waitress (she was at the table trying to close guy out because he was HAMMERED), i heard her (HEARD HER) threaten to shatter the windows on his corvette despite the fact that it was in her name, she brought up his not having a job, and her leaving him.
at this point i feel the duty to point out that i had learned he had hit on the both waitresses and the on duty waitress was trying to close him out so he could leave. the bartender was calling a cab because he was obviously wasted, and the off duty cop was constantly telling guy to “shut up, close your mouth” as drunky mcdrunkster argued with his wife. finally the bartender told her to leave.
she didn’t leave, she stayed in her SUV while we waited for a cab. by this point the cops were called.
she came BACK in and continued to threaten him with taking the kid, the house, telling him what a loser he was and belittling him (not saying he’s a class act mind you). but she kept telling him how she was going to make sure he ended up in jail and to get his ass home. this time, the manager and bartender had her leave and she sat in her SUV. the cab showed up and the off duty cop (he came onto her as well), got him in a cab and sent him off to a street with a few hotels. the wife followed the cab as it pulled away.
what i just shared is 100% true. i’m not saying the guy is without fault, he was/is an asshole. but what i took from it was how his wife acted. it was VERY clear that she was going to make sure he went to jail. even off duty cop acknowledged he was going to end up in jail. bartender called the cops and told them to instead head to the street the off duty cop sent them and gave a description of the vehicles.
what i saw solidifies why i simply won’t get married. i’m not going so far as to say ALL women are like this, but far too many are this way to make me even consider marriage. i have a young cousin that got his gf (she’s 20 btw) pregnant and she acts the same way as the wife in this post.
and both men (my cousin and the drunk) are stuck with these women.
say what you want, but the drunk guy i can at least SORT OF forgive. he was drunk. while it doesn’t excuse his behavior; it at least explains it. his wife however was quite composed and acting in a precise manner. she was a fucking demon on a mission. actually she reminded me of (looks and personality wise) this lovely creature.
