Holiday Horror Stories


To remind folks that not everyone gets fat and happy on Christmas, the Merc chats up a bunch of working stiffs that will be making their money on Christmas Day, and among them is Beulahland manager Betsy May Storey, who shares the following holiday horror story. On one Christmas, "[My coworker] grabbed these two pint glasses and just slammed them on the floor... and there was a lady who was a regular, and this little shard of glass went into her eye... But she stayed! She didn't leave! She said it was the best show in town. We bought her so many drinks." [Portland Mercury]
