Tossing wine…

A man walked into a bar and ordered a glass of white wine.
He took a sip of the wine, then tossed the remainder into
the bartender’s face. Before the bartender could recover
from the surprise, the man began weeping.

“I’m sorry,” he said. “I’m really sorry. I keep doing that
to bartenders. I can’t tell you how embarrassing it is to
have a compulsion like this.”

Far from being angry, the bartender was sympathetic. Before
long, he was suggesting that the man see an analyst about
his problem. “I happen to have the name of a psychoanalyst,”
the bartender said. “My brother and my wife have both been
treated by him, and they say he’s as good as they get.”

The man wrote down the name of the doctor, thanked the
bartender, and left. The bartender smiled, knowing he’d done
a good deed for a fellow human being.

Six months later, the man was back. “Did you do what I
suggested?” the bartender asked, once again serving the man
a glass of white wine.

“I certainly did,” the man said. “I’ve been seeing the
psychoanalyst twice a week.” He took a sip of the wine. Then
he threw the remainder into the bartender’s face.

The flustered bartender wiped his face with a towel. “The
doctor doesn’t seem to be doing you any good,” he sputtered.

“On the contrary,” the man claimed, “he’s done me a world of
good.”

“But you threw the wine in my face again!” the bartender
exclaimed.

“Yes,” the man replied. “But it doesn’t embarrass me
anymore!”
