St Patrick

This morning one cup of coffee wasn’t enough, so I decided to make a run to Starbucks for a second cup. I offered to pick up coffee for the others in the office, and Rick (name changed) said he’s in a giving mood so he’ll pay for all if I make the trip.

Mitch asked why the giving spirit, to which Rick replied:

“This is St Patrick’s day, its the most celebrated Christian holiday.”

All of us busted out in laughter. St. Patrick’s day is the day I get pinched for forgetting to wear green (today is no exception), its the day to drink green beer, but I don’t have any recollection of it being a religious holiday. We all thought it was a riot.

Rick, now a little embarrassed, replies “I mean, next to all the others like Christmas and Easter.”

Hilarious. Oh, and thanks for the coffee Rick!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day all. Listening to Modest Mouse.
