  • I’ve never been to a bar. Due to health reasons and medication, I don’t drink. I have been to a bar, though. I went with my NISRA group last year. We went to watch a Cubs game, as they had gone to the World Series. That was a lot of fun, and the best part was that I didn’t have to buy my pizza. The staff at NISRA took care of that. I do things like this for my boyfriend. I offer to get things he may be running low on. I do this because helping others is the right thing to do. It doesn’t matter that you’ve got a disability. Doing something kind for someone else makes you both feel like you can bring about change. If someone needed something, I’d definitely help them out. I’m a helpful person. I wouldn’t leave the other person hanging. As long as I can remember, I’ve always tried to help others.

  • Answer to question #1 - No. I don't go to bars.

    Answer to question#2 - Yes. I paid for whatever the person in the car behind me ordered at the Starbucks drive-thru window. Then, I drove away as quick as I could before they knew what had happened.


    Because, I wanted to.

    Do something for someone who can't repay you. That's what God did.

    He paid a debt He did not owe;
    I owed a debt I could not pay;
    I needed someone to wash my sins away.
    And, now, I sing a brand new song,“Amazing Grace.”
    Christ Jesus paid a debt that I could never pay.  -Ellis J.Crum

  • I am not a bar person. At a female relative's wedding, one of the groom's family bought me a drink. Not a very exciting story.

  • No. Bars are not my thing.

    Once, though, the person in the car ahead of me paid for my coffee at Starbucks. They didn't know me and I didn't know them. 

    When I drove up to the window the server said,
    "Your drink has been paid for by that person who just drove off."

    Oh my goodness! What a wonderful random act of kindness!!

  • All the time ..ive never bought a stranger one but i would only thing is i make sure that the drink is bought in front of me ....Keep that in mind ladies and gentlemen ! You can never be too careful !
  • I've never bought anyone a drink but I've had drinks bought for me. Last time that happened, I was out with Rachi and Sarah in Baltimore and this cute British guy bought Sarah and I a beer lol. I was out once though with Lina and Brian in Georgetown at some bar and this creepy fat guy bought me a drink as a way of approaching me. He figured if he bought me a drink secretly then I would be like OMG why thank you and then approach him. Nope. I said thanks and then tried avoiding him all night. Hey, I didn't ask you to buy me the drink! It's been a really chill day today. Jon's at work for another hour so I've basically spent the day with his dad talking. Pretty nice though he can talk your ear off! He did however unexpectedly clean all the sap off my car! I had told him about my car how disgusting it looks and he said well, lemme fix the toilet and we'll take a look. I went upstairs, lost track of time and next thing I know I hear his dad outside coughing and I go outside and my car is clean! He said he wanted to test it out and see if what they had worked and then got involved cleaning. My car feels brand new - I can't wait to drive it again :) Once I got my new stereo in place I think I shall love my car again! Back to MD tomorrow... I notice with the blog-a-thon my entries are shorter...I wonder if that's because I have less to say now that I'm updating every day or do I feel I'm limiting myself in what I can say? Hmm something to ponder o.0

  • I don't go to bars, I'm too young. Once, I was at a tarc stop across from Quills and this guy told me to come here. I did, and he bought me coffee. Him and his boyfriend were really sweet (: They told me no one should have to wait for a bus without coffee. Even though it was 85 outside. lol.

  • psh. yeah. I was out at a gay club up in Tampa's Ybor City called The Honeypot the day after my eighteenth birthday, and some guy asked me if me and my friend wanted shots. I said I was only eighteen, but he said it was alright, and I said yeah but my friend said no. so, he hands me a big cup, and, thinking it was just a normal sized shot, I bottomed the fucker, and soon found out it was way more and ended up spitting it back out because there was so much and I can take a shot of straight V, but no more. lol.

  • Yes, strangers have bought me a drink at a bar.  No, I haven't bought a drink for a stranger I don't know why besides being a girl.
