These aren't necessarily deep thoughts, but they're thoughts that every bar customer should know. Dave's Facebook page after a busy night at the bar is a gold mine for this stuff.
- You usually are not the only one in the bar.
- Don't wave your hands.
- Don't yell my name.
- Don't order a drink while I'm in the middle of making another order.
- Don't throw popcorn at me.
And this observation was left by a frequent patron, and it's true:
If you treat your bartenders with respect, compassion, and patience (generous gratuity, too), you will be treated with great service and friendliness (& they'll tolerate your drunk self so much better, too).
Keep this in mind next time you're out at a bar!
I’m glad somebody said it!!! 🙂 Thanks for giving all us other bartenders a voice! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Ok..during my time as a bartender I had the following thoughts:
1. No, I will not marry you this week either, and yes you still have to ask your wife for permission.
2. Yes, they are real, and no you can’t touch them.
3. ok..so it’s a slow night here at the bar..here’s a new game..you two guys can compete against each other…whichever one of you that can pitch a dime into a shot glass held in my cleavage gets a dollar from the other guy and you have to give me one as well for letting you do it. (Sounds crazy? heck I walked out of there with $50 bucks..and just so you know, I retrieved the dime myself because Bartender Thought #2 still applies)
You’re welcome! We plan to post more of these…the “thoughts of a bartender” are neverending, as I’m sure you know!
LOL! We’ll use some of those in our next post if you don’t mind!
