Joseph started his Italian Classes tonight. He's already declared one of the three classmates his "bitter rival." After the class re-organized their meeting schedule acording to Joseph's time constraints, his rival voiced minor frustration. Of course this led to all-out war, culminating in his yelling at her (after class) about the proper ways to fill in the "memo" field when writing a check.
After class he bought his new text books with our neighbor Clare, who also joined him for drinks at one of our favorite Union Square hangouts, L'Express (awesome French Onion soup).
How should Joseph handle his new rival?
