A man with no arms walked in to a bar and asked the bartender for a beer.
The bartender stared at him, thinking that he looked rather unusual, but then decided making a comment would be rather rude, so he poured the man a beer and placed the foaming glass in front of him.
“I’m sorry to have to ask”, the customer said, “but as you can see I have no arms. Would you please hold the glass up to my mouth so I can take a drink?”
“Sure”, the bartender said, being a friendly sort of buy and he lifted up the glass so the armless man could take a drink.
“Thank you” said the customer. “I wonder if I could ask you another favour. Would you be so kind as to get my handkerchief out of my pocket and wipe the foam off my mouth”.
“Certainly”, the bartender said, putting his hand into the customer’s pocket, pulling out the handkerchief and using it to wipe the foam from his mouth.
“If you could reach in my right hand pants pocket”, the armless man said, “you will find the money for the beer”.
Thankful for this, the bartender reached into the man’s right hand pants pocket and took the money.
“You’ve been very kind”, the armless man said. “There is just one more thing. Where is the men’s room?”
“It’s out the door”, the bartender said. “Turn left, walk two blocks and there’s one in a filling station on the corner”.
This just goes to show that even the most helpful people have their limits! Have you had a situation like that where you helped someone out but things went a bit too far? If so, we would love to hear about it, especially if it’s funny. Just leave us a comment. Thanks.
