Missing A Major Minor Point

| Working | November 19, 2013

(I’m a European exchange student celebrating my 18th birthday by shooting pool at a local bar in a small Nebraska town. Note that back home, you are considered an adult at age 18, not like 21 in the States.)

Me: “It’s my 18th birthday and today I could legally drink if I was back home. Imagine that!”

Bartender: “Happy birthday!”

Me: “I don’t suppose you dare sell me a single bottle of beer to celebrate?”

Bartender: “No can do.”

Me: “Yeah, wouldn’t want to get you in trouble. Well, I’ll just have one of those non-alcoholic beers then just for the taste.”

Bartender: “Sorry, but I can’t sell you that.”

Me: “What do you mean? It’s non-alcoholic.”

Bartender: “It’s still beer. We’re not allowed to sell beer to minors.”

Me: *speechless*
