“A bartender is just a pharmacist with a limited inventory”

"A bartender is just a pharmacist with a limited inventory” is a saying that has been put on gift items such as bumper stickers and T-shirts since at least 1996. It’s not known who coined the saying.

Hard to believe that, “A bartender is just a pharmacist with a limited inventoryā€¯. I think it’s true, because they has no other way to find himself.

This is so true and funny.  They are giving you a drug.  And yes they will talk about your problems with you.  That is a good statement.
