I have. I was drunk and approached these 2 girls sitting at the bar. I told them I ran out of money and didn't want to use my CC to buy one more beer. I asked them if they could buy me a beer. She grabs my hand with my wedding band and tells me I guess your wife didn't give you enough money for tonight.

She still buys me the f'ing beer!!!!!!!
