Yershmin sat quietly, but decided to turn his life around.
“Listen, bartender guy, I’ve had a bit of a rough time and I need a drink and someone to talk to.”
The bartender (also known as Jeff) eyed Yershmin curiously, but saw that this guy might need help. Jeff poured a cold beer and passed it to Yershmin.
“Yershmin. My friends call me ‘Yersh’.”
“Okay, Yersh. Have this drink on me. Now what seems to be the problem…?”
And with that, Yersh and Jeff talked for hours and became friends.
