colinspooky: Is that true? Barmen/maids are not paid a wage in the US? All barmen/maids? The only money they ever get on a shift comes from tips alone? Serious question.
scottydoesntknow: #1, 3, 4, and 5 happen because you aren't paying attention or focusing on certain customers (friends, hot girls) while ignoring others. Do your farking job correctly and you'll drastically cut those downI don't even know what #2 means.#6, 7, and 8 are what get you tips and explain why you're biatching in #12-15#9, 10, and 11 are your farking job. Yes it sucks when people ask you to make a cocktail you've never heard of, but take 5 seconds to hear the ingredients and whip that shiat up. Biatching about it is what causes you to (again) biatch in #12-15.What a whiny tool.
socodog: Dear schmuck, you earn less than minimum wage because you are ever so easy to replace. Shut the fark up and fetch my drink. If I was concerned about what annoys bartenders, well... I wouldn't be.
TuteTibiImperes: I mean, it takes more effort to pull a $2 draft beer than it does to pour a $20 glass of scotch, why should the latter deserve more of a tip than the former?
John Buck 41: Fu*king whiner. Take my loose change and shove it up your ass. Your choice--a couple of dollar bills or a shiatload of quarters and dimes. It all adds up the same way. And besides, last time I checked, bartenders don't get waitress pay, i.e. tips are a LOT more important to the latter.
jasonvatch: From "The Fourth Profession" by Larry Niven"There's not a bartending course in the country that will teach you to leave the sugar out of an Old Fashioned during rush hour.""What did you say?""It depends on the bar, of course. No posh bar would let itself get that crowded. But in an ordinary bar, anyone who orders a complicated drink during rush hour deserves what he gets. He's slowing the bartender down when it's crucial, when every second is money. So you leave the sugar out of an Old Fashioned. It's too much money.""The guy won't come back.""So what? He's not one of your regulars. He'd have better sense if he were."
The My Little Pony Killer: socodog: Dear schmuck, you earn less than minimum wage because you are ever so easy to replace. Shut the fark up and fetch my drink. If I was concerned about what annoys bartenders, well... I wouldn't be.If he was that easy to replace, you'd make all your own drinks at home instead of typing out a response about how hard you don't care.
ReapTheChaos: "...And that dollar a drink thing went away with the 1970s. Dig a little deeper."Wow, this guy thinks a buck a drink is being cheap? Jesus farking christ, even a slow night he probably averages 20 drinks an hour, what the fark.
Fano: Wow, subby out trolled the troll article. Your troll-jitsu is strong.
nanim: never heard of that book by Niven - is it part of an anthology?
hogans: YOU WANT SOME MORE
GhettoWinter: FTA - "Bad enough I've got to make time-consuming classics all night, like the Old-Fashioned (thanks, Don Draper), but the bar manager has also been perusing antique recipe books, and he wants me to manufacture these long forgotten delectables. When I get several orders for a handful of six ingredient-cocktails, I'm in the weeds. When I'm in the weeds, I can't make money. I hate that. "1) Old-Fashioneds are delicious, you don't have to watch mad men to enjoy them.2) Don't want to make extravagant cocktails? Don't work in a bar that serves them.3) Quit or die, i don't care. Just don't blame customers for ordering off of the menu, jack ass./tips well//will order appropriately for the type of bar I'm in///slashies
GhettoWinter: Fano: Wow, subby out trolled the troll article. Your troll-jitsu is strong.Thank you./subby//this article made me much more angry than it should've so I don't know if that makes you right or not///i need a drink
SacriliciousBeerSwiller: This guy is a shiatty bartender. If people are taking orders for others who were waiting longer, it's because you suck at observation.
