Irish Interns at the Hotel

When I worked at a very large hotel here in Nashville, we had some intern from Ireland who were hard working and really fun people to go out with. They loved to have a good time with food and drinks and friends.

We had many good times in and around Nashville but one particular night we all went down to Mulligan's Pub and proceeded to drinks quite a bit until we finally hit the street to head somewhere else and before we got to far down the sidewalk a couple of them decided they wanted to try and take down the Irish flag that flies in front of Mulligan's.

As you can imagine, when you have a guy on another guy's shoulders and trying to pull a flag off the front of the building, word got out quick. Soon there were people from the pub wanting to know what was going on and the interns yelling that it was f'ing flag and they were going to take it with them.

Next thing you know the cops show up and the interns are talked to and after they explain that it is there flag and they have every right to it the cop explains why they can't and won't if they want to stay out of jail. Luckily the interns saw the logic in that and they decided to call it a night and off we went....zooming right out of the city and back to the quiet suburbs, without the flag but quite a story to laugh about for a long time.
