Drunken Stupid

The Sligo isn’t as much fun when you’re alone. Just the drunken regulars, arguing about who the “Mayor of Massachusetts” is and weather the capital of Rhode Island is “Rhode Island City” (you can’t make stuff like this up, believe me, I’ve tried).

One guy bought a Budweiser ($2.25) and gave the bartender 6 singles. The bartender says, “Are you stupid or just a big tipper”. The guy was so embarrassed, he slurred “big tipper” and stumbled back to his seat. Never one to pass up an opportunity, I tried to convince the bartender that he was my friend and meant to buy two beers – one for me.

Didn’t work.
