A depressed man sat at a bar staring at his drink when in walked a big trouble-making man who stood next to the depressed man.
When the big man couldn’t get the bartender’s attention to order a drink, he simply picked up the depressed man’s drink and drank it down.
The depressed man began crying.
The big man felt bad and said, “Ah, pal, I was just joking. I’ll buy you another drink.”
“No, it’s not that,” the depressed man said. “This day is the worst of my life. First, I was late to work and I was fired. Leaving the building, I found out my car was stolen, and the police said they probably won’t recover it. I got a cab to go home and I realized I left my wallet in the cab as the cab driver drove away. I walked into my house and discovered my wife sleeping with the gardener. So, I came to this bar.”
“Jeez,” the big man said, “You have had a tough day.”
“Right,” the depressed man replied. “And just as I was thinking about ending my life, you show up and drank my poison.”
