Serving Up Discounts

Man comes in dressed in his air-force camos and orders his meal.


Me: And I'll throw on that military discount for you...

Him: How could you tell?

Me: Well...

Him: It must have been the hair cut that tipped you off.

(oh yeah: he was pretty much bald)

Me: Ahahaha...actually it was the Jagermeister pen.


Really, the guy took me by surprise. I like to joke around with my taco consumers, but they usually make me have to work at it. Thank you, military man, for catching me off guard!

Hey, you get military discounts for taco! Man, isn't there some kind of yard art reporter discount?

I must be a very dry person to throw you off guard.

redgirl said...

You're saying YOU are a dry person? Or was that a typo for "it"?

But either way...

option a) you are dry. even in the winter when it is raining. you are dry like the suns that warm the totem pole of the gods house.

option b) it is. and he was. I hope he comes back and brings his Jagermeister pen.

It was a typo, I have lazy fingers who just pretend to go through the motions.

I want a Jagermeister pen. I wonder if it was earned. I can tell you my husband has earned his many times over.

redgirl said...

what must one do to earn a Jagermeister pen? is it onerous?

lifeshighway said...

I involes:

a. getting kicked out of a comedy club for being too loud (p*ssy comedian)

b. throwing your up outside a fancy-dancy country club

or

c. having you wife pull you out of the laps of numerous women and bribing you with the fact that there are more women outside in the car.

redgirl said...

a. how droll

b. not the best location for that

or

c. depends...was it true?

lifeshighway said...

all of them are true...plus I think I earned a pen too because I came up with the great "plenty more women where these came from" ruse.

redgirl said...

Earning a pen sounds like fun...but difficult to do by yourself. Maybe a pencil would be easier? Or maybe you can aspire to the next level: the Jagermeister permanent marker

lifeshighway said...

Maybe if you can't keep your Jagger down you could earn a Jagermeister dry erase pen.

redgirl said...

And if you can't remember what you did, you get a Jagermeister whiteout pen

lifeshighway said...

and if you don't want to others to remember what you did, you get a Jagermeister laser pen.

redgirl said...

And if you want to warn people not to do what you did, you get a Jagermeister shock pen

I want a Jumpin Banana - Shock Pen,

It would make a great party favor, or just the right little trinket to add to the kiddies Easter Basket.

redgirl said...

You leave it on the table.

"Suzie, can you jot down a number for me?"

This post was funny. Thanks for sharing.

Are you 2 going to keep this party to yourselves, or can a latecomer join? How does a jagermeister pen taste?

A Jagermeister pen probably tastes how you would expect:

Like a too-long night spent in the bushes with a gallon of moonshine and a dubious woman.

lifeshighway said...

And you would know this how?

redgirl said...

The point of having a good imagination is that you would have to ask that question. A normal person would have to hemm and haww and say "well...you know..." and then you would know EXACTly what went down.

With me, I get to say "Gee, I just thought that sounded about right" and you never know what actually transpired. I like my way better.

Such fun at the comments at your blog, oi? Some folk take life very seriously...

redgirl said...

RG - I bow to your superior imagination!!
