Drinking to Forget

Yesterday’s tequila-centric story reminded me about another one, told by a colleague many years ago. It may or may not be apocryphal, but it is amusing.

 

As I heard it told, a buyer came to a closing reeking of alcohol.  The closing attorney, fearful that all his documents might be voidable because the buyer was inebriated, asked, “Sir, have you been drinking?”

 

The buyer looked at him and said, “You think I’d take out this mortgage if I was sober?”
