The scene: Happy hour. A young guy missing his right hand sits at the bar with a beer; he’s the right age to be an Iraq war veteran. Another man walks across the bar with two drinks & sits down next to him.
Drinker: (Gives the handless man one of the drinks.) “Hey, man — Iraq?”
Handless man: “Naw, nothing exciting like a war. A lot of people think that, though.”
HM: “I lost it at my job.”
Drinker: “Your job? Really?? What do you do?”
HM: “Oh, you know…sales.”
