Saturday Smile: A Beer Between Friends

We arrived at Sky Harbor International Airport early on Thursday, uncertain what to expect in these days of virus fear. We got through security easily and had lots of time to kill. And so, we had late breakfast/early lunch. I had a bloody Mary with my burger. Bill had coffee, holding off on beer until he finished his French toast. Eventually, however, he had a beer.

When we got our check, I noticed the server hadn’t added the beer to our bill. Being chronically honest, I called the server over and pointed out the error. She looked puzzled, and said, “I’ll be right back.”

She returned a few minutes later, and said sheepishly , “I accidentally put the beer on the bill of those two guys who sat behind you. They have already paid the bill and left!”

The moral of the story is always check your bill and don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Thanks to the two gentlemen who bought Bill’s beer!

Have a great weekend.
