I can't stand to see a grown man cry!

A man was standing at a bar, just staring at his drink. He stayed there motionless for half an hour. Then, a big trouble-making truck driver walked up to him, grabbed the drink away from the man, and drank it all down in one gulp. The poor man started crying. The truck driver said, "Come on man, I was just joking. Here, I'll buy you another drink. I can't stand to see a grown man cry." "No, I don't want another drink. This day is the worst of my life. First, I overlept and got to my office after 10. My boss was outraged and fired me. When I left the building and went to the parking lot, I found my car was stolen. The police said that they can't do anything about it. I got a cab to return home, and when I got out, I suddenly remembered that I left my wallet and credit cards on the seat, but the cab driver drove away quickly. Then I went home, and when I got there, I found a note saying that my wife left me for good! I couldn't stand staying at home by myself, so I came to this bar. And now, just when I was thinking about putting an end to my miserable life, you show up and drink my poison."
