A smartly dressed man entered a plush Manhattan bar and took a seat.
The bartender came over and asked: “What can I get you to drink, sir?”
“Nothing, thank you,” replied the man. “I tried alcohol once but I didn’t like it,and I haven’t drunk it since.”
The bartender was a little perplexed but being a friendly, outgoing sort, he pulled out some cigarettes from his pocket, flipped the top of the pack and offered one to the man. But the man refused, saying: “I tried smoking once, didn’t like it, and I have never smoked since. Look, actually, I wouldn’t be in here at all, except that I’m waiting for my son.”
To which the bartender said: “Your only child, I presume?”
