The next Friday, the patron comes back and places the same order. “I’d like three shots of your finest Irish whiskey, please,” he says. He pays, he drinks, and again, he leaves without a word.

This goes on every Friday for months. Finally, one Friday, the bartender asks, “Would you like to try something else, sir?”

“Ah, no,” the man replies. “You see, these are for my two brothers back in Dublin. I have one shot for Colin, one shot for James, and one for me. Colin and James are doing the same across the pond, and it’s like we’re all drinking together.”

Well, that’s a nice tradition, the barkeep thinks. They strike up a conversation, and become friends.

The years pass, and every Friday, the man comes in for his whiskey.

Until one day the man enters, looking a bit depressed, and says, “Gimme two shots of your finest Irish whiskey.”

“Oh, no,” the bartender says. “Don’t tell me something happened to Colin or James — is everything okay back home?”

“No, no, everything is fine,” the guy replies. “My brothers are healthy as horses, don’t you worry. It’s just that I decided to stop drinking.”
