Patricia went to the Shore Lounge with her husband and some friends on March 16 for an evening of fun. Upon arriving at the night club, she saw her friend, Chad, was there with his girlfriend. They all sat down to next to each other and alcohol started flowing. Patricia and Chad's gal pal don't like each other one bit. They're not on speaking terms and Patricia's friendship with Chad isn't as strong as used to be. To keep things pleasant, Chad and Patricia have devised a "winking" system they use to exchange "hellos." Chad's girlfriend saw the wink and went over the brink. She started yelling, "Hellloooo" at Pat. Patricia informed the woman that she wasn't going to be speaking or winking to her anytime soon. Then, Chad's main squeeze reached over Chad's shoulder's and allegedly hit Patricia with a beer bottle in the forehead a couple of times/Marc Stewart, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here
Question: Any advice that you'd give the winkers in this situation?
