A rather worse-for-wear gentleman, loaded with a backpack, assorted bags, and, well, just plain loaded, wanders into an establishment. He approaches the counter and addresses the fellow behind it.

LOADED GUY: Hey! Imma, Imma just gonna wait for my friend.

COUNTER  FELLOW: Uh, okay.

LOADED GUY: He’s black. But not really black.

COUNTER  FELLOW: I’m sorry?

LOADED GUY: You know what I mean. Anyway…

COUNTER  FELLOW: [Awkward silence]

LOADED GUY: I guess I’ll just wait a while.

COUNTER  FELLOW: Well, that’s, that’s fine. I guess.

LOADED GUY: [Gazes about vacantly, then slaps the countertop] Ah, what the hell! Gimme a beer!

COUNTER  FELLOW: Uh, excuse me?

LOADED GUY: A beer! I’ll have a beer while I wait.

COUNTER  FELLOW: Sir, we… ah… we don’t have beer here.

LOADED GUY: Huh?

COUNTER  FELLOW: This is a museum. You’re at the information desk. In a museum.

LOADED GUY: [Looks around again] Jesus! So… no beer?

COUNTER  FELLOW: No. Sorry. No.

LOADED GUY: [Mutters] No shots either, I bet. I guess I’ll go.

COUNTER  FELLOW: I think that’s really for the best.
