Reading, there's my problem

:icontacosteev:

So here I am in a bar late tonight drinking my soda and reading my book. It's at a good part so I'm oblivious to what's going on around me...and I missed some excitement. Though I looked up just in time the to see the dude who got kicked out walking backwards, flipping off the restaurant and being in the middle yelling "F You" as he trips over the fence and falls on his butt :lol:

Guess the dude was pretty hammered and being inappropriate towards the waitress and verbally abusive to the other patrons. Was apparently pretty loud when the bartender was escorting him out...man I always miss the excitement :grump:

I have it the other way around. I just can't concentrate on reading anything at all... Ever. But everything else that's around me is distracting as hecks.

I once missed a car crash because I was reading while walking down the street. I looked up only after hearing a big clunk, where I then saw two very annoyed drivers with their smashed cars.

Reminds me of a friend who was reading and riding his bike (he did it every day) home from work. He passed this car accident (guess it was a bad one) and didn't even noticed :lol:

Wait, you were doing WHAT in a bar? How COULD you, you soulless monster!

You don't drink soda at bars! Drink some goddamn alcohol you insensitive monkey!

One would think that reading in the privacy of your own home would be quieter and more peaceful than reading in a bar with noisy patrons and loud television sets with the latest football games on :hmm:

Unless it's Friday night or cheap beer night the one I frequent is pretty chill and quiet after 1030-11pm. At home I tend to do anything but read when I try to read...if that makes sense. I need more willpower I think :lol:

I don't know how you can read with so much noise. I usually like peace and quiet.. though once I get in the zone, I don't hear a thing anyway. :shrug:

The bar is pretty empty at late nights (unless the alcohol is cheap that night or it's friday). Usually just me, a few other customers and the bartender and server. Pretty chill atmosphere.

It's pretty chill at this one late at night. Unlike in Alaska, folk in Washington don't appear to be big drinkers past 1030pm.

Perfectly legit. I am sure a lot of folk go to a bar to read instead of to drink ;)

Lol, never happened to me. Then again, I have never seen a guy do something like that. :D I become lost in the book when I am reading it so I would have missed it too if I were in your place. What were you reading anyways?

Unless it is cheap booze night or a friday night, the bar is pretty dead when I walk in around 11pm. Usually the manager, bartender, myself and maybe 2 or 3 other patrons.
