It Doesn’t

Bartender: Nate! Long time no see, man. What’ll you have?

Me: A Fat Tire, please.

Bartender: Man, I should’ve known. Sure thing, will do. (passes me a beer) Hey, did you and Jess ever manage to patch things up?

Me: Actually, she and I decided to go our separate ways, but thanks for asking, seriously.

Bartender. Oh man, so sorry to hear that. Well, if it makes you feel any better, my girlfriend and I finally got engaged, can you believe it?

Me: Congratulations, that’s really great. Tell you what, I’ll go ahead and take the check whenever you’re ready.

Bartender: Sure thing, will do.
