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!

Writing Prompt: Filling in the blank

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.
