Not a Crackhead, but Crackish

This story begins as any normal shift does, popping bottles and mixing alcoholic beverages.  This particular night was a little slow I believe it was a Thursday.  This made it conducive for patrons to meet, greet, and be sociable.
Two gentlemen had been there for a while drinking the special and later that night two females walked in and sat at the other end of the bar (they had “Flirty Frans” written all over them).  If you guessed these men bought the ladies a round of drinks you were right.  After purchasing the round they proceeded to introduce themselves and this is where the story truly begins.   To the women’s credit I “think” they purchased one round for themselves, the men hoping to get lucky bought the rest.  Since the bar was slow I was able to witness the courtship and buying behaviors of the men.
As the night progressed the group became more intoxicated and with drinking comes frequent visits to the restroom.  Men and women rarely go to the restroom at the same time (or leave for it rather).  So when this occurred it kind of stood out to me, two of the members left the bar and proceed towards the restroom.   I was not expecting the events that were about to happen.  The group went from four, to two, and then to one.  One of the men had just purchased a round for the group but all of a sudden none of them were there.  The female he was talking to came back and said she had to go because her friend was kicked out.  He gave me the what just happened look and was mad because he had bought all those rounds and wasn’t going to reap any benefits.  Little did he know that his friend was kicked out too.  After waiting a while for his friend to return he left to go find him and learned of the news.  He came back to bar and stated, “My friend was kicked out.”  I was puzzled as well because just like him I saw the two leave for the restroom.  So what “really” happened?
I proceeded to investigate by asking the MOD (manager on duty) why they were kicked out.  People are kicked out for various reasons, wanting to fight, overly drunk, throwing up, being rude to others, etc.  I have never heard this reason in all my years of bartending.  I guess alcohol wasn’t getting the job done fast enough for the other male so he decided to up the ante.  Instead of going into the mens restroom he was in the womens restroom.  He was attempting to do a line of cocaine with the other female.  He almost got away with but the MOD happened to visit the restroom shortly after they did.  He noticed that the male wasn’t in the restroom and proceeded to check the womens.  While doing so he looked in between the cracks of the stall and witnessed the male preparing his drugs for consumption.  He escorted the two out without calling the police (fortunate enough for them).  After learning of this I informed the other gentleman that his friend was indeed kicked out.  He asked me why and all I could tell him was that he would have to ask his friend. 
Drug use typically leads to heavier stronger drug use.  If you have the slightest problem with illegal drug use, seek help because there is plenty available and will be worth it in the long run.  Just words to the wise, if you are going to use illegal drugs in public do so in the proper restroom (although you shouldn’t use illegal drugs at all).  Stay tuned tomorrow for  "Jack be Nimble, Jack be Quick." It's similar to this story in that it occurs in a restroom as well.
These stories are real accounts, so if you plan to drink and have a good time do so responsibly. Remember to call a cab or a friend because the cost of a DWI is way more than a $20 cab ride home.  Also, if you plan or happen to take someone home use protection.  For two reasons, one there are many STD’s floating out there and it only takes one to ruin your life or that of others.  The second reason is because a $3 condom is less expensive then 18 years of raising a child.
