Same time everyday at the same bar
This went on for years and as time went on the bond between these three men grew into something like a brotherhood.
Then one day as they were having their after work drinks, two of the fellows seemed really down
That's when one of the friends announced that he was moving to the USA for a job opportunity
Then the second fellow announces that he is moving to South Africa, also for a job opportunity.
All three men, now really sad about the fact that their group will be splitting up, decide to make a pact
Every day after work, each man will go into a bar and order 3 pints and 3 shots in remembrance of their brotherhood.
After months of this tradition one day the lad that has stayed in Ireland walks into the bar and orders only 2 beers and 2 shots.
The bartender who'd known of the 3 friends and their tradition became worried
So he asked “is everything OK bud? Did you have a falling out with one of your friends? Did someone die?”
To which the Irishman responded,
“No, they are fine
I've just quit drinking”
