I wish cell phones were no shirt, no shoes, no service. If I’m that drunk I should not have a working phone

No shoes no shirt no service. Great rule for a restaurant. Terrible one for a cell phone company.

Is this a funny joke?
A guy walks into a bar. A sign says “no shoes, no shirt, no service” The guy takes out his phone and says “I have service in here”

Literally just saw a dude walking around outside with no shirt, no shoes, and looking at his phone like it had no service.

I’ve been lied to my entire life. I walked into 7-11 naked and my phone still worked just fine.
