King Gambrinus - Patron Saint of beer.

Aww Crap!

This is a good one. The other day I noticed that I was out of beer. Actually I noticed I was out of beer at least a week ago. I have probably been out for at least two weeks.

But never fear! There is always the bar that makes their own beer that I still go to.

Anyway, I was out of beer. So when I was at the supermarket I remembered to swing by the beer isle to resupply. And there it was - 12 pack boxes of Samuel Adams. So I grab one.

And what happens when I get it home? I drop the stupid box. There is this horrible breaking sound. And then this liquid starts to leak out of the box and all over the floor.

So I said a few of my favorite words, and open the box. There are two casualties. My 12 pack is now a 10 pack.

This pretty much sums up how my week has gone so far.

Aaaaahhhh! A broken Samuel Adams is not good. (A broken Budweiser would be OK though).

That is truly a sad, sad story. I trust you drank up the others, to help wash away the tears?

I once drank some pepsi from a broken bottle through my shirt tail because I was that desperate for a drink.

After reading this I imagined you as Homer Simpson in the episode where he broke the last bottle of hair tonic.

ewww! How aggravating. I've had a similar week. :-P

well, next time just get down on all fours and lick it up. waste not want not or however that goes.

How tragic.
I'll have to remember that shirttail trick, although it would probably work better on the 3rd or 4th beer if you've been working under a truck.

*moment of silence for your loss*

This reminds me of the time, years ago, when Ekim and I returned from a BYOB place, and I stashed the one beer I hadn't finished in my coat pocket. When we got home, I hopped out of the car to lift up the garage door. As soon as I raised my arms, my precious extra beer fell out of my pocket and--the stuff makes me forgetful, but I love it.

Sam Adams is good.

The Lazy,

You need gloves. This Dude at Duke invented a frig that throws a beer to you.

Daisy - A broken Budweiser would not be so bad. If you can find one in a glass bottle. Those are usually in cans or even 12 ounce plastic bottles now.

Michael - I was so disgusted at the whole thing that I just stashed the survivors in the fridge, cleaned up the carnage, took a shower and went to sleep.

Ed - it was not that dramatic. Just some of my favorite words. I never thought of the shirt tail filter idea - but these bottles were way beyond that. They were shattered.

Saur - your week may have been worse. I can always get more beer.

Badoozie - I did not think of that. But anything that hits the floor here is instantly checked out by any one of several critters.

Fuzz - from all my observations - it is impossible to work under a truck without beer. It makes the work more productive somehow.

Actionbell - chicks normally are not that into beer. But you are right, it is good stuff. The problem is that so few people actually try a REAL BEER that they do not know what they are missing. Beer is not one of the top two most popular drinks in the history of time itself by accident.

Caiman - I just need to not drop boxes of beer. Or maybe get thick padding for the floor. A fridge that throws beer at me would freak me out.

Boo-urns. At least it didn't go from being a 12-pack to being a no-pack, right?

Blogger The Lazy Iguana said...

True. There were survivors.

One time I had a six pack of soda hanging on the edge of my shopping cart. It dropped to the floor and soda was spraying everywhere. I never toted soda that way again! It was a dumb idea in the first place.
