How To Quit Drinking
When he finishes, he comes back to the bar counter and orders 3 more.
The bartender says to him, “You know, beer goes flat after I fill it in the glass; it would taste better if you buy one at a time.”
Gempar Singh replies, “Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Qatar, the other in London and I’m here in New York. When they left home, we promised that we’ll drink this way to remember the days when we drank together.”
The bartender admits this is a nice custom and should leave it there.
Gempar Singh became a regular in the bar and would always drink the same way. He’d order 3 Beers and drink them in turn.
One day, he came in and ordered only 2 Beers. All the other regulars notice and fall silent.
When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bar tender says, “I don’t want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my sincere condolences on your great loss.”
Gempar Singh looked confused for a moment, and then he laughs…. “Oh, no,”
He said, “Everyone’s fine; both my brothers are alive. The only thing is…I just quit drinking – I’m drinking for both my brothers.”
