Glass Status

Document Actions
Taking care of some business over a cocktail, an associate of mine and I noticed our server hovering by our table to check on the status of our drinks.

She said that my Scotch looked half-empty. “An optimist sees the glass as half-full,” said I. “A pessimist sees the glass as half-empty. An engineer sees the glass as twice as big as it should be.” The server laughed, which is not to say that I'm necessarily a wit, but that she wanted a good tip.

She then looked at me, no doubt trying to determine whether I wanted another. Am I an optimist or a pessimist? When our server turned to my associate to determine the same of her, she replied “I'm just the happy drinker.”
