Paul was sitting at the bar staring at his drink when a big, trouble-making biker full of tatoos and wearing a black leather jacket swaggers in and steps up next to him, grabs his drink and gulps it down in one swig and menacingly says,

"Thanks, whatcha going to do about it?" 

Paul burst into tears.

"Come on, man,"

the biker says,

"I didn't think you'd CRY.

I can't stand to see a man crying.

What's your problem?"

"This is the worst day of my life,"

Paul says.

"I'm a complete failure.

I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me.

When I went to the parking lot,

I found my car had been stolen

and I don't have any insurance.

I left my wallet in the cab I took home.

I found my wife in bed with the postman and then my dog bit me."

"So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it all.

I buy a drink; drop a capsule in and sit here watching the poison dissolve;

then you show up and drink the whole thing!

"But enough about me,

how's your day  going?"
