And since the likelihood of each indeed wanting a drink was relatively high (being that they walked into a bar) he would be depriving himself of the profit. (Also assuming he had a personal interest in the profit (either as the owner or commission)

His wife Ruchel was starting to get concerned that the house would not be completed in time. However, on moving day, Ruchel and Shulem Hirsch found that their house was in perfect working order.

A traffic cop on patrol one night in Boca Raton Florida, watching a 35-mph zone on the edge of town, suddenly saw a car come blazing by his hideout. Quickly grabbing at his radar gun, he clocked the fast-moving vehicle at 87 mph!
The officer took off after the speeder and soon had the car pulled over on the side of the road. Expecting trouble with such a reckless driver, the patrolman approached cautiously.
To his surprise, the driver of the offending vehicle was a little old Jewish lady, barely tall enough to see over the steering wheel.
“I was just getting her up around 90, I believe, officer,” replied Mrs. Applebaum calmly, peering up at him through her bifocals. “Why, what seems to be the problem?”
Shocked, the officer returned her comment, “What seems to be the problem? Why, this is a 35-mph zone! That’s the problem. Didn’t you see the sign?”
“Oh sure,” Mrs. Applebaum returned, “That’s why I’m driving so fast. I’m just trying to follow its instruction.”
Dumbfounded, the officer was momentarily speechless.
“Just what sign are you talking about, ma’am?” he asked, when he finally recovered.
Smiling up at the officer, Mrs. Applebaum placed a gentle hand on his wrist and said, “Why, the one that said ‘Speed Zone Ahead,’ of course!”October 19, 2015 11:48 pm at 11:48 pm #1202855October 20, 2015 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #1202856

Ten years went by, and the head of the monastery called for Moishe. He told him that he was a model resident and perfect scribe, and that they were very happy to have him. As per their tradition, he was allowed to say two words. Asked if he had anything to say, Moishe nodded and said, “Food cold.”
Moishe was sent on his way. Ten years later, Moishe was brought before the head of the monastery again and once again told how pleased they were with his performance, and that he was again allowed two more words if he so chose. Moishe said, “Bed hard,” and was sent back to work.
Another ten years went by, and again Moishe was called in for an audience, and he was allowed another two words. Moishe nodded and said, “I quit.”
