I need a PT ruling

Lets say one PT member (lets call him dchawk82) made a bet with an other PT member (lets call her jen517). Lets say dchawk82 won (per usual) and jen517 decided she didn't have to go forward with her sentence. What should the proper form of punishment be for skipping out on losing a bet?

Oh gag me...DC has been MIA since the super bowl bet, I think that since it was half a year ago it doesn't still count!

I would like to point out that there was never a time limitation placed on our bet. And I've been around... you've just missed my awesome posts.

There definitely should be a time limit. I think dc this is your punishment for abandoning us so much over the past few months!

Not that I want to get involved either but... I can see both sides...

JEN did just basically admit DC won the bet...

and DC's posts did drop off dramatically during April and May (not not actually MIA...and not 6 months...)

sooooo...I guess my question would be: Why wait so long to call her out on not going through with it since you weren't gone??

I don't know if there is a statue of limitations but shouldn't some sort of pardon or at least amnesty should come into play?

DC, you're acting like one of those damned doctor bills, you wait and wait and pay what bills show up then right when you think the debt is settled and you are back on track, some random bill for some last service appears...I HATE those. So I guess I'm with jen...

I'm not going to win this battle am I? Our original bet was that the winner would pick a sig line that the loser would have to use for a certain amount of time. What if I create a sig line and she only has to use it for a week? A week is way shorter than her original sentence was.

It seems to me that when dchawk lost his bet, he paid up.

All good points.
DC...is does seem like you are 'back in the swing of things' and want her to pay up. Your concession of one week...how generous.
Jen....you admitted he was right.

Surely you two can work this out and play nice.

It is nice to see you are still with us, DC!

Sorry to say I'm going to have to side with Jen517. DC there is no evidence that you were held captive somewhere and unable to get your payment from the bet.

Too late now buddy!

I side with Dchawk82. A bet is a bet and I kind of want to see what sig line he would create.

Aside from Dc's conspicuous absence, (yeah, u know u abandoned us) I agree that a bet is a bet. Mostly I just want to see what jen's new sig line will be. Those are always good for entertainment. Just look how long Dc was gone, tail tucked between his legs.

While I think a week is quite generous, I think it's been too long for Jen to have to pay up. As a compromise, how about Jen doesn't have to use the line, but DCHawk has to "Proteacher stalk" her and post the line after each of her posts... that way the line gets seen and DCHawk has to participate on proteacher?

By my count, it looks like I win! Jen's new sig line is, "I didn't lose a bet to dchawk82, but I heard that guy is awesome." It's up to all of us to make sure she uses it.

What about this sig line, dc..."Can't we all just get along?"

I think I like being a bench warmer for this game, too, y'all.

that everyone would side with you...boy weren't you wrong! Someone shouldn't have vanished since the Super Bowl! I really think Heidi's idea is the best!

But, since I'm the better of the two of us...

I didn't lose a bet to dchawk82, but I heard that guy is awesome.


But do I seriously have to type it each time or is there an easier way?

Nope, you have to type it each time I figure if people see it enough, they might actually start to believe it.

and I'm glad you conceded, Jen, because I would've voted with DC on this one.

Come on now--a week's not so bad. He did post his fair share of eye candy for us when he lost.

First, I agree with DCHawk. A bet's a bet. Unless a time limit was stated in the original agreement, there is none.

Second, this whole argument proves two things:

1) PT needs a poll option. It makes voting on these things MUCH easier.

2) PT needs a sig(nature) option. Sigs are fun, and they can be helpful, too.

But I'm not holding my breath.

Two things: Bethany is making stuff up because she's still mad that I won so many bets against her. Also, I don't think jen should be able to change the sig line I gave her. Because of her immature behavior, I've decided to add another week to her sentence.

Can I play, too?

I didn't lose a bet to dchawk82 (because I don't play games like that), but I heard he's really a girl.

Did I do it right? Oh, sorry, I don't care.

To Grace: you can't play and I'm not a girl, I can prove it!

To Jen: you're very good at making yourself look like the hero. But in reality, we all know I'm the one who made the sacrifice and lowered your sentence . Don't buy into the Jen hype machine!
