  • The Signature Of Inebriation

    RESTAURANT | SEA ISLE CITY, NJ, USA | BIZARRE, FOOD & DRINK



    (I work at a late-night restaurant that caters to the people who come for food when the surrounding bars close for the night. A customer comes in who has drunk a little too much.)


    Customer: “Do you accept credit cards?”


    Me: “Yes, we do.”


    (I swipe the credit card, and it is approved.)


    Me: “Now, if you could just sign here, you’re all set.”


    Customer: “What am I supposed to sign?”


    Me: “The cardholder’s name.”


    Customer: “Okay, thanks.”


    (She then proceeds to draw a picture of a naked lady—complete with large boobs—where her signature should be.)


    Me: “Uh” ma’am, I don’t think this is a valid signature.”


    Customer: “Just try it; it’ll work!”


    (I put it through, and the machine accepts the signature!)


    Me: “Wow, I guess you’re right!”


    Customer: “I need to stop drinking so much!”


    (She leaves me a $15 tip on a $25 bill! That is why I love working the late-night shift!)

      Wow, I think your sense of humor fell off, 'cause I don't see it. This is the "Hilarious" thread, not the "Infographics" thread.

      Weird.. in post view they show up normally, it's just a PITA to get to the end of the thread anymore, so many extra steps/load times to get through before getting to where it used to take one click to get to

      Apparently being afflicted with sleepius interruptous (cranky child that wakes up frequently) for the last few weeks has had a detrimental effect on my ability to sarcasm.

    I often do much the same thing. I'll even do it that way when sending files to printers -- just so that at a glance the printer can tell what colors are involved. The only problem I've found has nothing...

    Thanks for the feedback Buda; I'm using wordpress and I have a very fast connection at home. I stupidly thought wordpress was automatically compressing the images when uploaded. For the moment it is mostly...

    If you followed the other suggestion to look for banding and get a proof, then yes it is fine if you have also fixed the knob.

    No display is fine. The shot is too close to the background without any additional outlining back lighting.

    Front cover, I am going to say that the model choice is all wrong. Was that your doing? If it was reconsider using a more attractive guy even if you want rugged. Men are the same as women and want to...
