It was like a movie. I was bartending at an Italian restaurant (not a fancy one, but still) and it’s pretty much full of valentines dates. A guy walks in and sits at the bar by himself, looking pretty down. He asked for a whiskey, so I poured it, told him it was on the house because he looked like he needed it. He proceeds to tell me his story:

he had come to the city to surprise his girlfriend for Valentine’s (about a 5 hr bus trip between cities) and he sure surprised her. She was in her dorm room f**king one of his friends from high school. He didn’t know what to do, so he just walked into the first place that sold alcohol. I spilled as much whiskey as he wanted and watched the raptors with him. Never saw him again. —rjwyonch
