Someone at my workplace was consulted on the Silicon Valley show and created probably the best paper to come form the company ever:

Back in Texas, despite promising myself I'd never return.

Bad science, random Prada, and the sudden realization that LMNO is ten times sexier than I previously believed (which I would not have thought possible).

Pictures and details forthcoming, if I make it back.

I am so waiting for these pics.

One of my bar patrons, one I was pretty friendly with, killed himself on Saturday. I just found out an hour ago.

The last time I saw him we had an argument, and I never got to rectify that situation. He left the bar angry, saying he wasn't going to come back when I was working (he was drunk, and this wasn't uncommon for him). My last words to him were: You'll be back; this is the Hotel California, you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.

But he never came back.

And now I'm left with wishing I hadn't tried to be funny.

Him killing himself had nothing to do with that incident, at least I don't think so.  I hope not. The last time I saw him was almost a month ago, certainly lots had transpired in that time.

I wish people wouldn't kill themselves.

Me too. Sorry to hear that Hoopla. I think it's fairly safe to say that unless there was a distinct mention of you personally in a note or something he wasn't thinking about you at all and likely would have done the thing having never known you. I know that the point is your sense of regret at that last interaction, but I'd like to shore up your perspective there.

As to saying regrettable things that you can't take back not long before you lose someone, been there. There's nothing nice to say about it. I was about 15 when I confessed to my grandfather that I had, for years by then, been putting no effort into school and just barely passing things on my ability to take tests. I was hoping for his help on some level, but I could see that he was angry and clearly disappointed. He just didn't have much to say, after the fashion of an old Roman in such a state. He just dropped me off when he got me home and I never got to bring it up again. My memory of the exact amount of time that passed is hazy, but within a month or 2 he passed from a sudden coronary.

It's hard to weigh what is regrettable to say against what might be regrettable to not say.

Me three.  On the flip side, instead of retroactively explaining the behaviour as a disparaging attempt at being funny, it seems more like the direct result of an accurate, however indeterminate, understanding of the situation.  Although it may have seemed like an uncalled-for provocation, the response was in itself neither out of place, nor casulally sufficient to explain what followed.  I'm still sorry too.

I really shouldn't have even implied that interaction had anything to do with it. He had a lot of problems: had recently been fired, felt he was getting financially gouged by his ex, and was diagnosed with a debilitating disease.

That last encounter was fairly standard for our relationship. He would get shitfaced, say something stupid, I would challenge it, and he would leave. That last time ended with him calling me racist because I disagreed with what "wog" meant in England. I wasn't going to not challenge that, so he went off in a huff.  Unfortunately, that happened to be my last encounter with him. I wish I had reacted at least slightly differently that time. Oh well.

Sucks.  So it goes.

Maybe get a small plaque for him, hang it in the bar or something?

I could do that.
