The Three Asshole Rule

When you meet your third asshole of the day, it means you’re probably the asshole.

Heard in the rooms last Saturday


About Al K Hall

Like a battered drinker or a punch drunk boxer, i am here for another round. For those of you who don’t know me, i’m a semi-professional writer on the rocks and a non-practicing alcoholic (if after 30 years of practicing, you still can't do something well, it's best to just give it up). For those of you who do know me, thanks for stopping by anyway and where’s the ten bucks you owe me? Welcome to my Bar None. A hole in the wall where we can hang out and trade the kind of stories you swap only when you’ve had one too many and either can’t find your way home or are afraid to. Hell, it’s cheaper than therapy and plus the pictures are prettier. Here we’ll crack open bottles and jokes and ‘last call’ are the only dirty words you’ll never hear. Pull up a stool and make yourselves at home.

  1. Fabulous! I have the same theory, I just call it something different: the common denominator…

  2. Ha.ha…the man in the mirror for me…when my spiritual condition is wavering and floundering, then I meet a whole lot of dodgy and swarthy characters out to get me…when spiritual condition is stronger and sturdy, then I meet a whole lot of God’s children who are out to teach me…

    Great stuff we hear in the rooms, eh?

    Awesome stuff 🙂

  3. This is so great to finally understand it! Lol! When I was a kid my dad used to say: if it is one or two people then its them anymore than that it’s most likely you! I hated that saying, I just didn’t get it! Lol! But how true! Thanks for the reminder 🙂

  4. Heheheheh! Wise words. There are some wise folks in those rooms, for sure.

    • Hi Babe!

      Just one of the many advantages of the program. i get better information on living there than i did many after many years as a religious churchgoer.

      Keep coming back,

      Al K Hall

    That, or you’re spending too much time in the bathhouses. Just sayin’.
