A man walks into a bar looking downtrodden and close to tears. The concerned bartender probed the patron to find out the reason for his sadness in an attempt to help him.

Once, a very sad man patronized a busy bar, obviously weighed down by his problems. A bartender noticed his sadness and tried to ease him off the mood.

Upon approaching the bar to order a drink, the barman initiated a conversation, asking the man what was wrong. To that, the sad customer burst into tears and replied:

“Well, I’ve got these two horses, and well, I can’t tell them apart. I don’t know if I’m mixing up riding times or even feeding them the right foods.”

Understanding the man’s plight, the bartender tried to come up with possible solutions to help the man differentiate the horses. After a while, a thought occurred to him.

“Why don’t you try shaving the tail of one of the horses?” the barman offered.

The sad man bought the idea immediately, wondering why it never crossed his mind. He wiped his tears, thanked the bartender, and stormed out of the bar excitedly.

Months later, the same customer entered the bar, looking sadder than before. He approached the bartender, who recognized him and asked:

“What is wrong, this time?”

Crying uncontrollably, the customer recounted how he followed through with the first suggestion. However, he added, the horse’s tail grew back after several months, leaving him unable to tell them apart once again.

In a bid to dismiss the customer, the barman again offered:

“Why don’t you try shaving the mane. Maybe that will not grow back.” 

Grateful for the million-dollar suggestion, the grieving man celebrated over a few drinks and left the bar to try out the new idea. The barman was all too happy to be rid of him.

His happiness was short-lived, as a few months later, the man, with a gloomy face, revisited the pub. He walked up straight to the bartender and said:

“I shaved the mane of one of the horses, and it just grew back.”

Now furious at the horse owner’s stupidity, the barman dismissed him saying:

“For crying out loud, just measure the stupid horses. Perhaps one is slightly taller than the other one!”

Again, the patron left the bar determined, but returned a day after with the broadest smile on his face. He immediately recounted his success to the barman.

“It worked! It worked!” he began excitedly. “I measured the horses, and the black one is two inches bigger than the white one!”

A Man Ordered Three Beers In A Pub

A man ordered three pints of beer in a pub, and sipped all three simultaneously, piquing the bartender’s curiosity.

On a fateful day, a man strolled into a pub and requested for three pints of beer. The customer took his seat in a corner and began sipping his beer.

The curious barman watched as the customer sipped from the first pint, then the second, and the third, then cycled back to the first again. The man continued the process until he finished up the three cups of beer. As he ordered another three pints, the bartender said:

“Sir, I know you like them cold. You don’t have to order three at a time. I can keep an eye on it, and when you get low, I’ll bring you a fresh cold one.”

“You don’t understand.” The customer explained. “I have two brothers, both living in different countries. We made a vow to each other that every Saturday night, we’d still drink together. So right now, my brothers have three pints too, and we’re drinking together.”

The barman nodded in understanding, admiring the brothers for their unmistaken bond and wonderful tradition. The customer showed up at the pub every week and made the same order of three beers.

However, one week, the man came along and ordered two drinks instead. After exhausting the drinks in his usual manner, he ordered two more. While delivering the second order, the barman, believing the worst offered his consolation saying:

“I know what your tradition is. I’d just like to say that I’m sorry that one of your brothers has passed.”

With a note of apprehension, the man replied:

“Oh, my brothers are fine. I just quit drinking!”
