Four old retired guys are walking down a street near NC State
that says, “Old Timers Bar - ALL drinks 10 cents.” They look
at each other and then go in, thinking, This is too good to be true.
The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room,
“Good afternoon - glad you came in; What'll it be, gentlemen?"
There's a fully stocked bar, so each of the men orders a martini.In no time the bartender serves up four iced martinis—shaken,not stirred—and says, "That'll be 10 cents each, please."They pay the 40 cents, finish their martinis, and orderanother round. Again, four excellent martinis are produced,with the bartender again saying, "That's 40 cents, please."They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity gets the better ofthem. They've each had two martinis and haven't evenspent a dollar yet.Finally one of them says, "How can you afford to serve martiniss good as these for a dime apiece?""I'm a retired tailor from
," the bartender says, “and CharlotteI always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the Lotteryjackpot for $125 million and decided to open thisplace. Every drink costs a dime. Wine, liquor, beer—it's all the same.""Wow! That's some story!" one of the men says.As the four of them sip at their martinis, they can't help noticing fourother people at the end of the bar who don't have any drinksin front of them and haven't ordered anything the wholetime they've been there.The bartender says, "They're retired people from . FloridaThey're waiting for Happy Hour when drinks are half-price."
