In The Bar At 2am

IN THE BAR AT 2AM AT 50

“IT’S TOO DAMN BRIGHT IN HERE”

The drunk guy in the corner says
To which the bartender replies:

“Go Home” “It’s Late”

“You’ve Had Enough”

So you, hearing all this get up and turn your head and look around to catch a glimpse of the drunk guy causing all this commotion thinking that the wasted bastard  is going to make some retort, retaliate or say something funny, so you wait for his witty banter or at least a decent comeback, but it never happens

And then?

Suddenly just as you’re about to leave you stop for a second and see him in the mirror

Looks like he’s leaving too.
