Beer spilled on suit sleeve? - Page 3

post #31 of 42
Too much analysis. In a grungy dive, then having beer spilled on you comes with the territory. In dive bars, beer get spilled, shoes get scuffed, and burns happen.

In a nicer bar/lounge, then it might be that someone who spills a substantial amount of beer on you will offer to take care of the cleaning costs, or at least buy you a drink.

That is unless they throw it on you. If they did throw it on you, then you have bigger problems than spilled beer.

In any bar, things happen. Its a risk you take when you walk in the door. I have had shoes, shirts, ties, you name it ruined. Its called the cost of doing business baby, and business is good!!!

Chalk it up to good times. Like losing your favourite tie, because you left it in that blondes place last night... and you cant go back because her husband should be getting back from his business trip right about.......... now

Okay. I asked because someone mentioned dry cleaning money. As you know, I'm new in this part of town, and based on everything we see on TV and all the crazy jury stories we hear, I could very well be made to believe that it's standard here to threaten a lawsuit for not forking over dry cleaning money for beer spills.

I dont mean to give you a hard time. More to the jokers who are continuing this.

Get it cleaned or wear it proudly. Like a battlescar

Believe me, I don't take it as a hard time. I'm laughing right along because moving here from twelve time zones away has involved a number of cultural disconnects.

Come on. You're apparently a smart guy. You mean to say that you want us to believe you honestly think you should be threatening someone with a lawsuit for a $10 tab because TV led you to believe it is routine in the U.S.? I doubt you'd be going around threatening to sue someone for having spilled beer on you in a bar in Manila. Social behavior in a bar in Manila is not that much different than it would be here.

No, I believe the joke has been beaten to the ground at this point.

No, no, NO!

Minors often have parents with deep pockets!

Ahem. Which jurisdiction did you say this minor was from?

The fist fight in the parking lot could eventually cause more dammage to the suit IMO

This is why I never wear any of my nice suits when I know I am going out after work. I dont care how careful you are - you will get something spilled on you at some point of the night. T

Sure! I confess with no shame that I often go clubbing in H&M suits for that reason... they are cheap, have modern cut and look great in the dark light of discos ... So there would be not a great deal when it gets spilled with beer or tequila or a cigarrette burn... that has luckily not happened yet...

But also the next day you can smell the smoke and the girls sweat on the suit... so I would not expose a high quality suit to that punishment...

I have however, to let the suit take air outside to get rid of the smoke smell..
