I'll Be Back
I was sitting in a neighborhood bar the other night, when the gentleman who had been sitting next to me abruptly got up and walked out the front door.
A few moments later, I turned around and looked at the seat where he'd been sitting.
Apparently he had saved his spot while he went out to smoke!
I had to take a photo of this..it was priceless.
It isn't the highest quality photo, since it was taken in the dark surreptitiously and with a cell phone camera. But if you look closely you can see that the bartender had very kindly covered his beer with a napkin, and provided him with this cute little sign:
And it worked. Nobody disturbed his drink or took his seat. He came back 10 minutes later, took the sign off, and continued drinking his beer! #
