:x Warning: ewwwwwww
« on: March 29, 2009, 07:04:45 AM »
When I was young I put myself through university by working all-night shifts in a nightclub. Since I usually worked 11pm-11am, people were usually worse-for-wear by the time I came on shift. I saw some charming customers, but one guy in particular has always stayed in my memory. The place was always packed, and the exceedingly long bar littered with drinks in various stages of consumption. Using the crowd and profusion of glasses as cover, this gentleman would order a pint of water (from some newbie unaware of his tricks), pour it out, and then cruise the bar filling up his glass by tipping in the dregs of everyone else's drinks. This was not a discriminating man. He'd often mix wine, spirits, beer, and condiments together; when he had a full pint, he'd sit and savor his cocktail of dregs and backwash. Management would usually get him out, and I wish they had this one night before I was treated to the following sight.

This poor bloke looked short of a dollar or two, and some kindhearted regular customers included him in their round of tequila shots. The man in question insisted on the prized shot containing the worm (apparently the worm absorbs a lot of alcohol so you'll get a kick. Don't know if it's true!). Anyway, I happened to be watching to see if he was really going to swallow a worm. He did-for a moment anyway. Down went the shot. The gentleman gazed at the glass in deep thought for a moment-the puked up the shot again, in its entirety....perfectly in the glass and -I kid you not- with the worm circling lazily in the bottom of the glass. I wouldn't have believed it unless I saw it with my own eyes. I didn't know whether to puke or laugh hysterically. The good news is, the incident was witnessed by so many amazed people that the gentleman became a hit and had drinks bought for him from then on until I graduated and quit. He never needed to trawl for 'cocktails' again. However, I don't know how many of those people saw the sequel I saw-the gentleman regarding the puked-up shot, shrugging his shoulders, and downing it-again. I guess old spendthrift habits die hard. I personally have never touched tequila since.

There's nothing more to say to that is there?

I think that is really sad.  He must have had a problem.

A lot of the frat rats I hung out with in college would think that really cool to do. 

I have had so many "adventures" in my past with people regurgitating around and on me that I guess I am more amazed at the man's aim than I am disgusted about the nature of what he did.

I still say it sounds like Callahan's  (the Duck would have had to have been there though.)

I think that "gentleman" is not the word I would use.

It wasn't Callaghan's, it was a bar in South Australia now mercifully defunct. Glad to hear there are other classy establishments where this might happen though! I have never in my life seen anything else to match the aim though.
Also, I used the term 'gentleman' in a slightly sarcastic manner.  ;)
Aoplogies for not including a warning in the first paragraph.

Callahan's, Mary's Place, and now "The Place" are bars in Spider Robinson's fiction.  I wonder if we are ever going to see anything written after Callahan's Con?  I miss reading new stories..........even if I don't spend much time in bars.

I would also think that there would be issues with the health code if any inspectors had come in while the guy was trolling for dregs...........
