I was reunited with Allison last night (yes!) and we went out for drinks. When it was my turn to buy a round I ordered three beers and took out a $50.
Bartender: "That will be $12."
Me: "I'm sorry, I missed that. How much again?"
Bartender: "Twelve dollars."
Me: "Are you joking?"
Bartender: "Yeah, nah it's actually $24."
Me: "Oh, okay!"
Bartender: "No, it really is $12."
Me: "Wow! Thank you so much!"
The bartender sort of cocked his head to the side but I didn't explain why I was in such disbelief. Twelve dollars for three beers?! Definitely not Semi-Swiss.
Happy Christmas Eve everyone!
