Last month I was on my way to a weekend music festival and stopped at two different beverage stores to stock up on beer. My friends and I don't get sloppy drunk at these festivals, but beer is a big part of them -- we stay up late and sing/play music, and drink beer. We camp, so driving isn't an issue.
I was also hoping to find a small bottle opener I could carry around. It seems that a couple of years ago, all beverage stores had an assortment of small and inexpensive openers by the register. For some reason, they have all disappeared!
I asked at the second store and the young fellow who waited on me said they didn't have any, "but I know where I can get you one." I figured they had some in the back room that were on their way back to the wholesaler.
He hands me a little opener with the Guinness logo, and it takes me a minute to realize he had taken it off his OWN KEYRING.
Me: Oh, no, I can't take your personal opener. What will you use?
Him (holds up key ring which still has a grogundous stainless-steel bottle opener attached): Trust me, I won't go without!
I drank many toasts to Generous Beer Store Guy that weekend! As did my friends who appreciated being spared my constant requests for an opener!
