A Shot In The Dark

| New York, NY, USA | Food & Drink

(We have a Foursquare check-in special for a free shot. A customer comes up showing that he has unlocked the special.)

Me: “Could I see some ID?”

(I check his ID and he’s a few months short of being 21.)

Me: “Sorry, but you’re not 21, so you’re not getting a shot.”

Customer: “But it says ‘free shot’ right here.”

Me: “But, you’re not 21. You can’t get a shot.”

Customer: “What is the mystery shot anyway? Could I get a virgin version?”

Me: “Not really possible.”

Customer: “I checked in. It says I’m eligible for a shot and a shot I shall have!”

Me: “Well, a shot is, what, like an ounce? You want an ounce of Coke?”

Customer: “Oh, yes, that’ll be lovely.”

Me: “Okay.”

(I take a shot glass and manage to fill it with Coke, despite the pressure of the soda gun making almost all of it spill out.)

Me: “Here you go.”

Customer: “Thank you!” *walks away happily with his ounce of Coke*
