Four old retired guys are walking down a street in LA. They turned a corner and
see a sign that says, Old Timer's Bar - all drinks 10 cents!

They look at each other, and then go in, thinking this is too good to be true.

The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, 'Come on in and let me pour
one for you! What'll it be, Gentlemen?'

There seemed to be a fully-stocked bar, so each of the men ask for a martini.. In short order,
the bartender serves up four iced Martinis…….. shaken, not stirred, and says, 'That'll be 10 cents each, please.'

The four men stare at the bartender for a moment. Then look at each other……..they can't
believe their good luck. They pay the 40 cents, finish their Martinis, and order another round.

Again, four excellent Martinis are produced and the bartender again saying, 'That's 40 cents, please. They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity is more than they can stand.
They have each had two Martinis and so far they've spent less than a dollar.

Finally one of the men says, 'How can you afford to serve Martinis as good as these for a 10 cents each?'
'I'm a retired tailor from Sydney,' the bartender said, 'and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the Lottery for $25 million and decided to open this place. Every drink costs ten cents - wine, liquor, beer, it's all the same.'

Wow!!!! That's quite a story,' says one of the men.

The four of them sipped at their Martinis and couldn't help but notice seven other people at the end of the bar who didn't have drinks in front of them, and hadn't ordered anything the whole time they were there. One man gestures at the seven at the end of the bar without drinks and asks the bartender, 'What's with them?'

The bartender says, 'Oh, they're all Scooter club members waiting for happy hour when drinks are half price.'

As a group, ham radio operators are the cheapest, tightest, group I have ever encountered. I didn't become a ham until 2012 at the age of 61. As I became more immersed in the hobby, I was shocked at how tight these old guys could squeeze a penny. It seems to be deeply ingrained to complain about how much something costs, or how they could make something similar for half the cost. I still don't get it; I think amateur radio equipment is a very good value, but they just seem to enjoy complaining about everything.

Great joke by the way. I may have to appropriate it and change "Scooter Club" to "hams". Razz

Jim Caudill...go for it, I stole it off another site, changed the location from OZ and changed the grouping to Scooter riders..
scOOter, It is true.. 10c drinks for all, but you will need to hire shop glasses @$20 per hour.

It's just up the road from Union Station.

As an ex-amateur (KL7EVI) I never men another ham that was all that cheap. We all spent all our spare money on rigs and just didn't have much left over for drinks.

@Kurt
love your slogan: Normal people believe that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Imagineers (Silverwing modifiers) believe that if it ain’t broke, it don’t have enough mods yet.
Especially the use of the Disney coined term Imagineers.

This is pretty much my motto.

I'm not sure exactly what 'normal people' are. If you go by numbers people who ride motorcycles and scooters aren't part of a mathematical norm when considering people who operate machines on prepared roads. So it's not really true any subset of riders are actually 'normal' since the whole group isn't truly normal. Anyone could see that seeing the posts on this forum which are much saner than most.


(the above is humor)
