I’m behind the bar, it’s martini night. Guess what I’m doin’? Yep. Pouring waterfalls of martinis.
I approach a couple at the bar. Have you decided? The guys says, I’ll have an Eddie Haskell, and she’ll have the Something Fruity. Great, I say.
I make them.
I put two martini glasses in front of them, shake up the shakers, take the caps off, then start pouring one.
GUSH. Top FLIPS OPEN, I am literally pouring a martini on top of the bar. The big problem with this is, his cell phone is in the line of fire. I am pouring a martini onto his cell phone.
I am truly amazed at my reaction time. It all goes really fast, maybe 2 seconds tops, I set the martini shaker down, and lunge at the cell phone, grab it, yank it out like I was pulling out a fish from the lake. Luckily, I have a towel in my back pocket, I yank that from my pocket, and start frantically wiping the cell phone off. It’s just covered in martini. I get the front, sides, back, then I blow into the area you plug it in.
I think I may have caught it in time, I hand it back to the guy, make my apologizes, ask, does it still work? He checks it, says, yeah. Still working. I breathe a sigh of relief.
At that moment, I am able to asses the damage. I say, did i dump BOTH martini shakers onto the bar? Jesus. The guys says, yeah.
But you saved my phone.
