I was on the trip with Capt Ahab and his "That Guy" who is also my "That Guy". There were definitely a few tense moments later in the trip as things got heated, but the beef was between two individuals and the rest of us just stayed out of the way.Sounds like that trip didn't have a "that guy" but instead had "those guys". Two "that guys" on one trip had to be awkward for everyone else
That said Capt. Ahab needs to turn his filter up a notch or two on occasion (something i said to his face on the boat so I'm okay writing here)(I'll keep praying for you Ahab).
The person in question became "that guy" for me early on in the trip. I had dinner with him and the Seeker sponsor the night before the trip. I mentioned I was heading to the store after dinner and "that guy" asked me to pick up a couple of 12 packs. So I do, lugging them back to the boat on foot along with my own purchase. The next morning I tell "that guy" I have his beer in my room. "okay, I'll pay you for them." 2, 3,4 days go by and nothing. So I give "that guy" the receipt for the beer thinking that isn't a subtle hint. The next morning the receipt is still on the table right where I set it down in front of him the night before. The next day "that guy" asks me to put some of the beer in their cooler, so I do and it goes quickly. This goes on a few days and the beer is finished. In the end, "that guy" takes third in the jackpot and never pays me for the beer. Not only is he "that guy" as Capt. Ahab described, he's not even a man in my book. A man pays his debts.
