Here's a real problem. I frequent my local Hooters restaurant almost daily. I've been going there 13 yrs come December. I wasn't going there that much when I was married. But once I got divorced I can't stop going. That place is my HAPPY PLACE. Whenever I'm not a happy camper I go there and leave a happy person. Those girls there always puts a smile on my face. They make me feel happy. Some of the girls are like my daughter. I rekon I feel I need a replacement for my daughter cause she lives in Florida and me in Indiana. My relationship with my son isn't good. So I feel I don't have a family. I do have my parents and siblings and plenty of friends, but they aren't my kids who I miss a lot. The girls from Hooters are my family. I hang out with some and take most out for dinner on their b-day. Some even call me Dad. A few won't even take a tip from me. I even play golf with two of the managers. Some people think I'm a freak and crazy. They just don't understand. Those girls are my family. I've cooked them dinner, been to their graduation parties, offered my advice, changed their flat tires, met their husbands/boyfriends, picked them up and taken them to work when they didn't have a way, been to the local car races with two of them. Three of them like too fish and said that they would be my partner for the catfish tournaments I do if ever I need them. My problem is... I want to stop going so often. I waste no telling how much $$ in there. Beer in there isn't cheap. Plus I do tip well. I tip well wherever I go. Even if the service sucks. No telling how much $$ I wasted in there. I don't even want to know how much. Has anyone been in a situation like this to where you spend too much time somewhere and want out? I need some guidance here. Ya'll have any suggestions on what I should do to not go there so often? I love that place and I love the girls but I need to not go so often.
