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.

  1. You usually are not the only one in the bar.
  2. Don't wave your hands.
  3. Don't yell my name.
  4. Don't order a drink while I'm in the middle of making another order.
  5. 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!
