Daily Prompt: Fill in the blank

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

Three people walk into a bar, the bartender turned his attention to figure out if they’d come for some drinks or cause trouble. The three looked like they had joined together only recently. Mr. Smith, the bartender was an easy going man, who did not like any kind of problem.

He noticed there was a big burly dude, a skinny  tall guy and the third one had a long beard colored in a variety of colors. He addressed them at once, “Yes folks what brings you here?”

The beard man was somewhat haughty, “Why do you think, we’ve come here?” He was indignant.

“Well”,  said the bartender, “this is my way of starting a conversation”.

The skinny guy was fidgety, he couldn’t wait to tell the bartender, the purpose of their visit. He said in his shrill voice, ” what if I say we’ve come here to rob your money?”

“Then dear friends, I’ll hand you over to the police.” Mr. Smith the bartender replied.

The big burly dude realized his partners have made the situation unfriendly. It was his turn to smoothe the situation.  He calmly said, “Mr. Bartender, we did not come to cause trouble, we were walking along the road looking for a place where we could sit and have some drinks, please ignore my friends here, I apologize on their behalf.”

The bartender breathed a sigh of relief, he took their order. The drinks were served, the people had their much needed rest. They paid the bartender handsomely and left!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    I deal with conflict as part of my job. I’m called to manage it, defuse it, and to try to lead everyone to the best outcome possible. I’m glad to see here that you, in this story, led the participants to a peaceful outcome :).

    All good wishes,

    robert

    • Dear Robert,

      Which I did, thank you for your comment. 🙂
