“I was at Kona with my friends today and a bouncer called BB came to the table my friends and I are sitting on, called one of the guys on our table and asked him to ask us to leave because we’ve bought nothing and there are other customers with money who want to buy from there, meanwhile my friends and I have bought a lots of drinks already and we were waiting for another friend to join us but since the waitress had off loaded our table already and we had just 2 disposable cups on it he felt we are the best people they should sack.
So I questioned my friend the bouncer talked to, and he disclosed the info to me. So I stood up, went to the waitress and asked her to please give us our receipt and go and tell the bouncer we’ve bought drinks already. And I came back to sit down and the bouncer was still with my friend telling him to leave. So I started talking to my other friends, telling them this is so embrassing, then the bouncer speaks to me and ask me to keep quiet cos he’s not talking to me.
