Pokah with people you don't like

I have to admit - I thought about turning around and leaving.  I have to deal with this guy infrequently at work, and when I do, I generally leave with a sour taste in my mouth, and usually wind up involving a manager to get the issue dealt with.

I did my very best to "play nice" ..  it was his first time playing with real people (versus on a computer), so was trying to give him advise and help... 

So I'm not really certain about this.  I suppose there's no reason that I shouldn't discount him because we don't get along at work, and that a relationship outside of work may be a bit more successful...  but at the same time, I think its just a personality thing...  I find him overbearing, loud, talkative, and a sense of humor that isn't easily understandable....

Or maybe that's just me being pissy.

In the end, he went out first, then left the party a little while later after dealing for a bit.  I hung in there for a bit, then went all-in on an open-ended straight with suited connectors ..  lost to a full house.  I did have a lot of fun - it was nice to play again after a little hiatus..  but not losing every weekend has been kinda nice as well :-)

'Tis snowing a lot today ..  its supposed to snow until Monday morning.  Looks like its another day of taking the bus.  Snow tires don't do much good in heavy rutts on the roads....
