    The Cup Is Half Empty Kinda Guy, Part 2

    | Essex, UK | Uncategorized

    (The pub has a special offer selling pints of ale for the price of a half-pint.)

    Customer: “Can I have a pint of ale, please?”

    Me: “There you go. That’s £1.”

    Customer: “But, your sign says that a pint costs the same as a half-pint.”

    Me: “It is. A pint is usually £2.”

    Customer: “That is a rip-off. A pint should cost £1 anyway.”

    Me: “I assure you that a pint is usually £2.”

    Customer: “Forget this. I didn’t come in here to be conned. Just get me a half-pint instead.”

    (I pour half of the pint into a half-pint glass.)

    Me: “Here you go, sir.”

    Customer: “That’s better. How much is it?”

    Me: “It’s £1.”

    (The customer pays, picks up his drink and walks off happy.)
