Man Sues Spearmint Rhino Strip Club For Being ‘Coerced’ Into Spending A Third Of His Salary In Five Hours
If you go to a strip club and allow yourself to spend a third of your yearly salary, you’re a chump. I don’t care if you’re cross-eyed drunk, spending that much money just to essentially struggle through blue balls is not worth it on any level. You give those strippers an inch, they take a mile.
Just ask Gil Davis.
According to Metro, 34-year-old Gil Davis was on a bachelor party for one of his bros when he consumed more than 30 alcoholic drinks in just 12 hours, consisting mainly of beers and Jager.
Davis, a business manager from Portstewart, Northern Ireland, stumbled into the Spearmint Rhino in Bournemouth, England (apparently the Rhino is international?), where he was reportedly surrounded by a team of strippers for five hours.
Davis woke up the next morning with what I’d surmise was a debilitating hangover and almost a $10,000 credit card bill from the Rhino, including $2,300 in tips for the strippers.
The man says that he does not remember much of the night but claims the club ‘exploited’ his intoxication and continued serving him alcohol even though they clearly were aware he was bent.
‘I wasn’t in control of my faculties and didn’t realise what I was doing and what I was spending,’ he said.
‘I was coerced into spending what turned out to be a third of my salary in five hours.
‘I’m not an oligarch or a footballer.’
Robert Sutherland, solicitor for Spearmint Rhino, said the staff did not manipulate or take advantage of Davis, but agreed to settle with Davis outside the courts for an undisclosed sum of money.
Gil, for future reference, it may not be the best idea to take this kind of thing public. You can’t put a price on your reputation. But now we all know you value it less than 10 G’s.
