Some Cuban men are not too bright
by men are con artists
I went to Varadero on a vacation thinking I was going to meet some other nice tourists, dance, drink and just have some fun and relaxation. I was sitting quietly by the pool when two cuban lifeguards walked by and started to chat me up. One of them what in his early 30's and the other in his mid 40's. They asked me where I was from etc.etc. Asked me to come to the beach. When I did, the older of the two named Damos kept coming by and just chatting.
When I left, he took my address and phone number and told me I was a beautiful and a good friend. Never heard from him I went back at the same resort 6 months later, because it was the nicest hotel in Varadero and I had really enjoyed myself the time before.
Well, when I got to the beach Damos remembered my name, gave me lots of compliments and spent basically the whole week catering to me, with drinks, and conversation. Then one day as he was walking away he said I love you. I was shocked.
Now mind you, this guy had been talking to me the whole week about his little fake cigar business on the beach, how they stole booze from the hotel to sell to tourists, even showed me where he hides his cigars in the bushes behind the beach. Told me how he gets past security at the front of the hotel and on the beach by paying them off. He has his little group of guys working for him selling these things to tourists. Now, I know how his whole operation works. Now, the guy plays me for the next year and a half, I come back with gifts, an Ipod for his son and daughter, perfume for his mother, tshirts for the guys. You get the picture. We get into a fight one day because I asked him why we couldn't see each other outside the hotel and he tells me it's because he's going to lose his job if he gets caught with a tourist. (that should have been my first clue).
Anyways, I text him and call him, he sometimes answers and responds but most of the time doesn't. Now, I'm getting angry because I feel like I've been had. Now, if I wanted to cause this guy major damage, do you not think that I could write the hotel manager and the hotel chain and tell them about these scams going on in their hotel and where exactly all these fake cigars are hiden. And that would cause him to lose his job.
Now talking about biting the hand that feeds you. How stupid was he, you would think that he would try to keep me happy, not too bright this cuban boy.
