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!

Three people walk into a bar……

The bartender had just served a drink to his female customer, when he noticed them. These three were dressed as common criminals with an air of superiority about them. Jack was an easy going fella, who never had to face anyone  like the ones that just walked in. He tried his best to stay calm, getting overly aggressive wasn’t his style.

The situation at that time was less than perfect. There were some rowdy boys in their twenties who had come into the bar, for a celebration of some sorts, the gals who accompanied them could not be called belonging to respectable families. Jack was not concerned, his job was to serve drinks and it was exactly what he was doing.

Suddenly the loud voice of one of the three who entered brought him back to reality.

“Ah yes”, he said, “were you talking to m m e e,” his voice shook a little.

“Yes you, lazy bum, who else did you think we’re talking to?”

Jack was working in this bar for a very long time, no one ever addressed him as a, “lazy bum!” Who are these people and why are they so rude he thought ?

Next he heard another one of the three who seemed like he was just back robbing a bank and had a fist full of money.”Did ya hear my partner Jack Ass, now come here raat now or we’ll blow your head right off ya shoulders, ya hear me, and I aint kiddin!”

Jack made a cursory look to see if there was anyone there who could help him, there was none, only the useless bunch of twenty year old kids who were dead drunk, they could not be of any use, even if they were sober.

He had to think of something fast, he quietly moved towards them , said very calmly, “What can I do for you gentleman?”

To his surprise, the third one replied, “Can we have some cold drinks we’re thirsty?”

He looked up to see  who this person was, no wonder he thought, this one is actually sounding like he was taught some manners by his folks, how did he get mixed up with these crude fellas.

“Are ya deaf”, the first one barked !

“Three cold drinks coming up” he replied.

While pouring the drinks he saw from the corner of his eyes, his buddy, Will, leisurely walking towards him. They made eye contact, Will knew at once his buddy Jack was in trouble. He turned around and left the bar.

Moments later he walked in with the sheriff and his deputy carrying loaded guns, upon entering they fired three shots up on the ceiling.

The three people were taken aback, they could not understand what happened, one of them looked around and saw the exit door,without saying a word they made a clear get away!

All Jack could say was, “Yo, Buddy Will, what would ya like to drink ?”

Three people walk into a bar….they looked around to see who the other customers were. The bartender was in a jovial mood that morning he welcomed the three wholeheartedly, he had some fine customers that day,who left him with a whole lot of cash as his tip, since the morning started so beautifully he expected everyone who stepped in would do the same.

“I’m Raphael, I’m Ronald, and I’m Reginald”,they introduced themselves one at a time. Something about this introduction scared the bartender, he looked around for his assistant just in case there was trouble, but the damn fool went out on his break. The bartender despite his nervousness tried to act normal.

He smiled and said,”Pleased to meet you folks, what would you like?”

“We’d like some food, they spoke at once.”

“I only serve drinks ,” the bartender spoke timidly.

The three were livid, “You say you serve drinks only,” barked all three of them in one breath.

Suddenly the bartender seemed braver, what could be the reason,I thought. My friend whispered, ” He has informed the police,they are on their way.” 

I was excited I wanted to see what the three would do when the police arrives. 

When the police arrived, they pretended everything was fine, Reginald lowered his voice and said  “We’d see you soon”, so left the three R’s without saying a word.
