    Default Old Timers Bar

    All Drinks are 10 Cents

    Four retired guys are walking down the street in Ft. Myers, Florida when they see a sign that says, "Old Timers Bar" "All Drinks 10 Cents!"

    They look at each other, then go in, thinking this is too good to be true.

    The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, "Come on in" and let me pour one for you! What'll it be, Gentlemen?"

    All four ask for a martini.

    In short order, the bartender serves up four iced martinis - shaked, not stirred, and says, "That'll be 10 cents each, please."

    The four men stare at the bartender for a moment, looked at each other.... then paid the 40 cents.

    After the second round, which cost them under a dollar, their curiosity got the best of them. Finally, one of the men says, "How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for only a dime apiece?"

    "Well, I'm a retired tailor from Boston, and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the lottery for $50 million and decided to open this place. Every
    drink costs a dime, wine, liquor, beer, all the same.

    "Wow, that's quite a story" says one of the men.

    As they continued to sip their martinis, they couldn't help notice the other three guys at the end of the bar who didn't have a drink in front of them....and hadn't
    ordered anything all the while they were there.

    One of the men gestures at the three at the end of the bar without drinks and asks the bartender. "What's with them?"

    "Oh, they're from Buffalo, New York....they're waiting for happy hour at 5 o'clock when drinks are half price."

    Are you implying that folks from Buffalo are cheap? I'll have you know that is simply not true. Why, there have been many times where we have lived on the edge and paid almost full price. Why, just the other day, I made a call before 9pm and used some of my minutes! Buffalonians cheap...why I aughta.....No I will not deposit 25 more cents for this call you little *Click*

    Don' sweat it, Bob! I visited Buffalo once- in fact, I think I was guy #3 in the story. When HAPPY HOUR came, i let the other two each buy a drink, then I remembered I had to get back to Syracuse real quick and stiffed 'em fer m' turn!

    For that price I think I'd stick around for happy hour too!

    For that price, I could actually afford to be happy.
