giftedmadness: YouSirAreAMaroon: UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: Mister Buttons: MatrixOutsider: Pouring piss water into top shelf liquor bottles and charging top shelf prices is not on the list?If a bar is caught doing this it can result in at least a $5000 dollar fine, and possible loss of liquor license. This is not something that bars do.Dunno how other states do it, but my sister used to tend bar at a Chinese restaurant in California, and one day had a guy come in with a briefcase, sat down and ordered a drink. She mixed it, set it down in front of him, and he immediately flashed his ABC credentials, opened his briefcase, poured the drink into a container, sealed it, and walked out the door to a van parked in the lot. Ten minutes later, he came back, told her that her pour was right on the money, and she had passed their audit. The restaurant was lucky that the other bartender wasn't there; she was a notorious overpourer, and they'd have fined her and the restaurant on the spot.Cajnik: 9. "Don't drink and drive, for your sake - and ours."This is BS. It shouldn't be the bars job to babysit you. Hell, they already have to listen to your drivel. Don't drink and drive - good advice. Don't sue the person who handed you a beer when you asked for it - better advice.I've lost two good friends that left bars ridiculously drunk and died; one on a motorcycle that hit a dumpster at 130 mph. My sister, when she's tending bar keeps a clinical eye on all her customers, and also keeps a running tally of how much she's served each customer. She's also very smooth about how she '86es customers- she'll sweet-talk you right onto the sidewalk so suavely, that you'll think you put yourself there on purpose. That's because she wants you back as a customer.You have poor taste in friends, the motorcycle douche was begging to die. I'm pleased he got his wish.Wow, you lonely, brah? And the fark douche of the year goes to.......

stevetherobot: Girion47: With the bars I go to, and the beers I order, each beer has it's own glass and the recommended pour marked on the glass in centiliters. There's no shorting of beer in that case.There is if the bottom of the glass is thicker than normal. In that case the line doesn't do you any good.IIRC, Germany has strict laws about this and even soft drink glasses have a line on them to indicate how much you are getting.
